Silent Spring by Rachel Carson
Silent Spring

bevsview, October 7, 2010

Rachel Carson's, Silent Spring, was based on emotionalsim NOT PEER REVIEWED SCIENCE. The problem was not her book; anyone is free to write a book. The problem was people took her book to be scientific fact and it was not. DDT got a bad name! There's an Excellent new documentary out by a medical doctor who explores DDT and malaria indepth, 3 BILLION AND COUNTING. IT IS A MUST SEE; A REAL EYE-OPENER! Dr. Rutledge Taylor explores the myths, lies, and cover-ups surrounding the banning of DDT by the EPA in the 70s. Thousands of pages of EPA Hearings' Testimony found DDT to be Safe for Humans and The Environment, yet was banned anyway. It's time to STOP DENYING THE TRUTH and BRING DDT BACK. DDT is the Safest, Cheapest, and most Effective way TO ERADICATE BLOODSUCKERS. For more info see:
