The DDT debate and malaria control

Everyone likes to talk about DDT and malaria, and a friend of mine asked me to post about the topic. No way! I am not walking into that mess.

Suffice to say, I am frustrated with both sides of the debate. My personal views probably lie closest to those eloquently expressed here.

    There is no debate. Only silliness. DDT works in some circumstances where no others work, and it should be used in those circumstances, and only in those. Only ideologues perpetuate the debate, and I’m sorry to say that in this case, the ideologues are on the so called left.
