J. Gordon Edwards used to eat DDT to prove it's harmlessness. He did it for years before finally dying of a heart attack at the age of 84, while mountain climbing.

Well then, see! He DID die, after all! /sarc

When I was a kid they use to announce the day before that the truck spraying DDT would be coming through town. As I recall at least a dozen boys on bicycles would follow behind the truck, and the plumes of spray coming out of the pipes.
