I should have expanded on my reply when I said that we could only slow down its spread, not prevent it from becoming fairly widespread. But, in that regard, at least until a large segment of our population has been vaccinated, I'm leaning in favor of limited use of DDT.Funny I literally entered this thread to say. I believe zika will be similar to Ebola once it meets modern medicine and paying patients.
My DDT discussion I meant to be a lets think about it.
I'm saying if you've found mosquitoes in traps that have Zika maybe its time to bust out the DDT for a limited period & area.
The resurgence is true, but the reports were nothing like the vaccines/autism link. The link between DDT and certain problems is fairly well established by real science, not by someone faking their research and zero other research establishing such a link.Apparently the reports that led to the banning of DDT were kind of done in the same manner of the reports linking vaccines to autism.
Ever since DDT has been banned tens of millions of people have died due to the resurgence of diseases like malaria.
DDT works so lets go kill those little biting bastards.
