1874 DDT synthesized by Othmar Zeidler.

DDT, a colourless crystalline substance practically insoluble in water, is highly soluble in fats and most organic solvents.

1939 DDT insecticidal properties discovered by the Swiss scientist Paul Hermann Müller who is awarded the 1948 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine.

The DDT Story

The Rise and Fall of DDT in America

Pesticides - DDT - Rachel Carson - Silent Spring

DDT is present in the Palos Verdes sediments, Los Angeles largely as a result of wastewater discharges from the former Montrose Chemical plant in Torrance, California, which operated from 1947 to 1983.

Wastewater containing over 1,700 tons of DDT was discharged from the Montrose plant into local sewers.

Fish caught off the coast of California from Ventura to Dana Point contain the highest known concentrations of DDT.

1977 Pesticide spill at Del Monte Fresh Produce Co. contaminates a local drinking water system on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.

The site is placed on the Superfund list in 1994 and is contaminated by the pesticides ethylene dibromide, dibromo-chloropropane, and trichloropropane.

1986 Use of the herbicide Dinoseb is banned after tests concluded that it causes fertility problems and birth defects in lab animals.

2001 An analysis of 117 studies of the incidence of lymphoma in the US concludes that people most often develop the cancer in areas with the highest pesticide and herbicide use.

The pesticides most associated with lymphoma, according to the Lymphoma Foundation of America (LFA) are the herbicides 2,4-D (2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid) and triazines (which include atrazine, cyanazine and simazine).

Phosphine compounds also had a high association with lymphoma.

These include: 2,4,5-T, glyphosate, lindane, carbaryl, chlordane arsenates, diazinon, dichlorovos and malathion.

According to the LFA, the studies also showed a link between lymphoma and exposure to solvents.

2,4-D first marketed in the US in 1940s, is detected in the ground water in 5 states and in 2003 found in 63% of home dust samples.

DuPont ceased sales of Benlate, a fungicide after hundreds of lawsuits.

2002 DuPont has spent over $1.3 billion on litigation and damages primarily for property damage to crops, flowers and ornamental plants damaged by Benlate.

2003 Delaware Supreme Court rules that statute of limitations doesn't begin in a toxic exposure case until discovery of a possible link between substance and injury.

Children born with eye defects that were originally thought to be genetic were linked to prenatal exposure to the pesticide Benlate.

2004 Run-off of the pesticide ICON, active ingredient friponil, manufactured by Aventis CropScience kills many of some 1,500 crawfish farmer's crawfish.

Researchers from Emory University and the University of Washington find an association between exposure to the organic pesticide Rotenone and Parkinson's disease.

2005 New study based upon results from Washington State's first year of mandatory testing of farm workers found that one in five of those workers who either mix or spray pesticides and/or herbicides "experienced significant health affects."

Of the 580 workers tested, 20.6% experienced at least a 205 drop in the enzyme cholinesterase.

The enzyme is reportedly "vital to the body's nervous system."

Some 4.4% of the workers experienced at least a 30% drop in the enzyme level.

Two of the more commonly used pesticides that affected the workers were azinphos methyl also called Guthion and chlorpyrifos which is sold under various names.

According to the EPA, 80% of all the orchards in the Northwest US are treated with both of these industrial oils.

West Virginia residents seek class action certification in a suit against Solutia Inc. alleging exposure to toxic oil which emanated from a facility that manufactured Agent Orange, which was a blend of 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T and picloram.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
