If there is a single pesticide almost everyone can name, it's DDT. DDT was one of the first chemicals in widespread use as a pesticide. Following World War II, it was promoted as a wonder-chemical, the simple solution to pest problems large and small. Today, nearly 40 years after DDT was banned in the U.S., we continue to live with its long-lasting effects.

As the use of DDT spread, a handful of scientists noticed that its reckless use was causing considerable harm to wildlife populations.

These scattered reports culminated in the now-famous book Silent Spring by scientist and author Rachel Carson, Forest spraying and some effects of DDT.

One, as we have seen, relates to the fishes of running streams in northern forests and to the single problem of forest spraying.

It is confined almost entirely to the effects of DDT.4/5(32). Spraying DDT on livestock and crops led to them almost doubling their yields.

DDT after being sprayed on crops and livestock are eventually concentrated to a greater extent as one moves up the food chain, with humans being at the top. The greater concentration of DDT has been linked to cancer in humans.

DDT or 2,2-bis(p-chlorophenyl)-1,1,1,-trichloroethane, chlorinated hydrocarbon compound used as an introduced during the s, it killed insects that spread disease and fed on crops, and Swiss scientist Paul Müller was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for discovering () DDT's insecticidal properties.

DDT, however, is toxic to many animals. alfalfa is sprayed with DDT and then ground into meal which is fed to chickens who lay eggs and then people eat the eggs that contain concentrated amounts of DDT. Hay is sprayed with DDT, cows eat it, and then milk has concentrated amounts of DDT.

Butter may have an even higher concentration. Nor was this the limit of DDT’s mischief. Annihilation of ladybug beetles by the spraying resulted in a tremendous multiplication of aphids, which are not affected by DDT but are naturally controlled by ladybugs.

The forest was on the way to being completely defoliated when rains halted the outbreak; aphids are shortlived in wet weather. Silent Spring Book Cover of Silent Spring by Rachel Carson. Source.

In addition, breast-feeding may modulate some of the negative effects of DDT, but this needs to be examined when exposure is high such as in communities where indoor residual spraying is occurring.

control, and DDT house spraying has its limitations. However, DDT remains a remarkably effective tool that should still be used. There is a continuing need for operational research to improve the cost-effectiveness of this approach. It is an astonishing fact that WHO guidance for spraying houses is the same today as it was in the.

The transgenerational effects of DDT are considered in light of some widely accepted ethical principles. We argue that this reframes the decision to use DDT, requiring us to incorporate new considerations, and new kinds of decision making, into the deliberative process that.

The first piece of legislation to lay down federal regulation of water quality, the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, is passed by Congress. This act, known as the FWPCA, will go through.

Most countries abide by the ban, but both India and North Korea still use DDT in agricultural settings. DDT Effects on Humans. DDT was once widely used in the United States and many other countries as an agricultural insecticide.Rachel Carson publicized the discovery of insecticides traveling up the food chain in ever‐increasing concentrations in her best‐selling book, Silent Spring (–), as did Robert Rudd in his less‐read book, Pesticides and the Living Landscape Carson did not provide diagrams, and the ones Rudd used were quite by:
