"Nor need DDT imperil wildlife. The destruction that Carson described was caused by the agricultural use of DDT as a mass insecticide in vast quantities on crops. But the discriminating application of DDT indoors involves only a tiny, contained, environmentally tolerable, reversible fraction of the dose. That is why some international health (as opposed to environmental) agencies, including Unicef, still support the judicious use of DTT. Even the WHO is now softening its stance". .......Rachel Carson, when confronted with the fact that she had made up both the epidemiology and the experiments and faked the data replied " My agenda is more important than the truth...." Someone show me reliable information that DDT caused anything like Carson touted...JUNK SCIENCE from the beginning and the US Fish and Wildlife Service is proudly carrying on the traditio0n of the socialist liar Rachel Carson
