Insecticides Lindane, DDT and 2-4-D are carcinogenic, WHO report

New studies on three well known insecticides have shown them to be able to cause cancer. All three have been in controlled use for many years but are still available, most especially in developing countries. DDT is extremely persistent (bio-accumulation) and despite being banned for many years, still remains in the soil and foods.

Maybe we should look at the ingredients in the insecticides which are used in our local environment.
