[12] This led directly to the strategy of indoor house spraying used globally when residual insecticides such as dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) became available after World War II.
Having never taken organic chemistry, I didn't know and therefore didn't care that pelagic plastic has the peculiar propensity to adsorb hydrophobic, lipophilic, polysyllabic toxins such as dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (a.k.a.
Before long, she was investigating the effects of dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) on wildlife.
Rachel Carson's seminal 1962 book, Silent Spring, told the real-life story of how bird populations across the country were suffering as a result of the widespread application of the synthetic pesticide DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane), which was being used widely to control mosquitoes and others insects.
Research has shown that persistent organic pollutants including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) adsorb to and concentrate on plastic debris in the marine environment.
Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT): ubiquity, persistence, and risks.
"For example, the chapter on endocrine disrupters [such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT)] has been extensively revised and expanded, and a chapter on birth defects, one of the major concerns of parents exposed to environmental hazards, has been added," he said in an interview.
When the Global Malaria Eradication Plan was launched in the 1950s, it was thought that the situation in Africa was too complex to tackle and that there was the risk of introducing resistance to dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT), so the continent was bypassed.
