Article Excerpts about Chemical poisoning -- DDT

DDT was one of the most widely used chemicals for controlling insect pests on agricultural crops and controlling insects that carry such diseases as malaria and typhus. DDT does not occur naturally in the environment. The presence of DDT in the environment is generally a result of contamination due to past production and use and subsequent movement from sites of application to land, water, and air. Several waste sites, including EPA’s Superfund sites contain these compounds and might act as additional sources of environmental contamination. Some DDT may be degraded in air, but the compound may persist for a long time bound to certain soils. (Source: excerpt from FAQ WOMEN AND PESTICIDES: NWHIC)
