Despite EU Threat, Many African countries use DDT

Malaria is still the leading killer disease in the world. Statistics show that in Africa, a person dies every 30 seconds from the disease.

The European Union is warning African nations that they will be sanctioned if they use DDT, the insecticide that environmentalists love to hate, in their fight against malaria. But, African nations argue it is the most effective and cheapest way to fight malaria....

Bono praised African mosquito net companies with their "modern technology" in fighting malaria in Africa in his recent visit to a bednetting plant...

Ummm...did YOU ever use a mosquito net? Without a bed?
And what about mosquitoes that bite while you are eating supper or going outside to move your bladder during the night?
