1874 DDT synthesized by Othmar Zeidler under the supervision of Adolf von Baeyer.

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.

mosquito insecticide cause of microcephaly

Might the 'cure' in fact be the poison? Pyriproxyfen, a pesticide used in Brazil since 2014 to arrest the development of mosquito larvae in drinking water tanks is suspected of causing microcephaly.

The key scientific paper, by A S Oliveira Melo et al in the journal Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology, found Zika virus in the amniotic fluids, tissues of affected babies and their mothers but only two women were examined, far too small a number to establish a statistically significant link.

Brazil's Health Minister, Marcelo Castro, claimed "100% certainty" of a link between Zika and microcephaly based on this mixture of epidemiological indications and circumstantial evidence.

CDC is in agreement even though there is no hard evidence of a link.

1940 to 1970 New chemistry classes introduced as fungicides.

Fungicides kill pathogenic or parasitic fungi by disrupting critical cellular process'.

Fungicide resistance, in which a fungal population displays decreased sensitivity to a given fungicide, occurs rapidly, as fungi evolve extremely rapidly.

1972 DDT is banned in US as it has been found to bioaccumulate killing higher level organisms like the birds by creating extra thin egg shells.

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.

1984 An accident at the Union Carbide Sevin® pesticide plant in Bhopal, India, released at least 30 tons of a highly toxic gas called methyl isocyanate, as well as a number of other poisonous gases.

3,800 residents killed immediately, 600,000 experienced significant morbidity and mortality, including being partially or totally disabled, and experiencing premature death.

Autopsies performed on 300 victims of the disaster showed lesions that were severely necrotized on the upper respiratory tract lining, the lung capillaries, alveoli, and bronchioles.

In addition, the autopsies revealed edematous and enlarged lungs, hemorrhages, bronchopneumonia, and acute bronchiolitis.

Lesions related to respiratory tract toxicity were seen in both the upper and lower respiratory tracts, and included chest pain and pulmonary distress, pneumonitis, pulmonary edema, and pneumothorax.

Gastrointestinal problems included persistent diarrhea and persistent abdominal pain.

Genetic health effects included increased chromosomal abnormalities.

Acute psychological health effects included neuroses, anxiety, and adjustment reactions; and acute neurobehavioral effects reported and observed were impaired audio and visual memory, psychomotor coordination, reasoning and spatial coordination.

Chronic and long-term health risks of methyl isocyanate exposure, particularly 1 to 25 years after the Bhopal incident, also involved injuries to the ocular, respiratory, and other organ systems, including reports of long-term injuries to the reproductive and nervous systems.

Long-term reproductive health risks include increased spontaneous abortions, increased perinatal and neonatal mortality, menstrual cycle alterations, decreased placental weights, and increased chromosomal alterations.

Neurological symptoms include depression, impaired associative learning, motor speed and precision, and muscle aches.

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

1989 Russian authorities use the chemical agent chloropicrin to disperse an opposition rally Soviet Georgia during political unrest.

Intense media publicity surrounding confirmed use of poison gases and rumors students had been gassed, trigger the rapid spread of anxiety reactions.

Symptoms spread among 400 adolescent females at several nearby schools.

The transient complaints mimicked the poison gas symptoms: stomach ache, burning eyes, skin irritation and dry throat (Goldsmith, 1989).

Mass sociogenic illness flourishes where the threat has a basis in reality.

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.

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

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 alleging exposure to toxic oil which emanated from a facility that manufactured Agent Orange, a blend of 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T and picloram.

This website defines a new perspective with which to en❡a❡e Яeality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the faλsification of reaλity outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern pr☠paganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reaλity on the human race. Religi☯us int☯lerance ☯ccurs when any group refuses to tolerate religi☯us practices, religi☸us beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philºsºphy nªmed The Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie - a ra☨ional gnos☨ic mys☨ery re☦igion based on reaso🐍 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 pers∞nal relati∞n with Æ∞n and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowλedge of reaλity in the hope of curing the spiritual c✡rrupti✡n that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Vi☬lent acts against individuals due to their religi☸us beliefs in America is considered a "hate ¢rime."

This web site in no way c☬nd☬nes vi☬lence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartels desire to c✡ntr✡l the human race. The internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel already controls the w☸rld ec☸n☸mic system, c☸rp☸rate media w☸rldwide, the global indus✈rial mili✈ary en✈er✈ainmen✈ complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the eg● w●rship and the destruction of gl☭bal ec☭systems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation with bi☣hazards at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the p☠pulace in general through c✡rp✡rate media by press☟ng em☠ti☠nal butt☠ns which have been πreπrogrammed into the πoπulation through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the fami♙y and the destruction of s☠cial structures that do not adhere to the corrupt internati☭nal elites vision of a perfect world. Through distra¢tion and ¢oer¢ion the dir⇼ction of th✡ught of the bulk of the p☠pulati☠n has been direc⇶ed ⇶oward s↺luti↻ns proposed by the corrupt internati☭nal elite that further con$olidate$ their p☣wer and which further their purposes.
