After millions of deaths, it’s finally great to see some sense returning to the world. The world’s greatest and safest insecticide has finally been cleared to return to saving lives:
The U.N. World Health Organization (WHO) reversed 30 years of policy yesterday, giving DDT a “clean bill of health” for controlling malaria, and it asked environmental groups to support limited use of the insecticide to save the lives of African babies.
“DDT presents no health risk when used properly indoors,” said Dr. Arata Kochi, director of the WHO’s malaria program. “Well-managed indoor spraying programs using DDT pose no harm to wildlife or humans.”
