Banned in 1972, DDT kills Songbirds in USA in 2014!
We call ourselves the most educated and advanced race. However, our activities prove that we have exposed ourselves and most importantly our environment to irreparable damages by developing and using products that we hardly have any control over. We are half educated in most of our so called 'development inventions and discoveries.' As a result we let loose killers into the environment and then don't have any control over them. The DDT is one such example.
A latest news report from Michigan talks about this alarming fact of DDT killing Songbirds. Tests have found out that these songbirds are being poisoned by this pesticide that was banned in the Unites States more than 40 years ago, in 1972. Lethal concentrations were found in the birds' brains, as well as in the worms they eat; said this report.
