The Ugandan director general of health wants the environmentalists of the developed west to back off from their high horse and let Uganda use DDT to control the widespread malaria there. He has done the research and says DDT is the best solution for the malaria mosquito. Bashes Rachel Carson a bit. Tough issue for me. DDT thinned egg shells of peregrine falcons( i was a falconer) and brown pelicans. I used to surf amongst the pelicans of the west coast till they were gone, now they are back. So is the peregrine. Dumping, even controlled, a large amount of a very long term pesticide in the African environment is a tough call, but having kids die of malaria is worse. What do you do in a case like that?
