Has anyone done a cost benefit analysis for the use of DDT to eradicate mosquitos?
Lives saved from malaria vs lives lost to toxin exposure.
Antibiotics are toxins but because the person benefitting from it is the only one exposed
we see a balance.
Would we not expose ourselves to small amounts of toxin if we knew it might save our neighbours
millions of lives.
Was DDT effective at mosquito control?
Is the current solution as effective?
Are the chemicals we are currently using in place of ddt safer to apply, less toxic and not as persistant?
Gotta go it’s getting late
