As international attention is riveted by fears over Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), an older and far more deadly disease quietly ravages Africa: malaria. Malaria kills more than a million people worldwide each year90 percent of them in Africa; 70 percent children under the age of five.”
Yet effective means, DDT, of preventing malaria spread and infection only costs a few dollars per person per year. But where are the “Malaria Quilts” and ribbons on trees?

Great point- I’d doen a few reports on the NON threat of DDT, and how it too became a celebrity cause to ban the substance while ignoring hte fact that people were dropping dead from a fully preventable problem- IT IS JUST SIMPLY STUNNING the hypocrisy and mentality of the far left wirth their causes- They are NOT concerned about ANYTHING but undermining conservative values, and the FACT that they oppose DDT while approving more funding for research into a lifestyle disease like Aids shows they are infact depopulation advocates who could care less about people who are TRULY suffering from diseases and maladies that they have no control over- their hypocrisy is simply stunning
