In the past several years, we supplied DDT 75% WDP to Madagascar, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sudan, South Africa, Namibia, Solomon Island, Papua New Guinea, Algeria, Thailand, Myanmar for Malaria Control project, and won a good reputation from WHO and relevant countries’ government.
I was particularly impressed by this argument from Devine:
Advertisements of the time, which today seem preposterous, extolled it as a benefactor of all humanity, with slogans such as “DDT is good for me-e-e“.
If an advertisement from a company selling DDT says that it is good, then it must be good? Using similar logic I can prove that athletes can smoke as many Camels as they want without it affecting their performance.
Update: Jim Easter, intrigued by the anachronistic Star Trek reference in the DDT ad tracks down the original version.
