Honest to goodness bud, WHERE do you come up with this stuff?<quoted text>
You are wrong- DDT is a bad thing that is cheap to make with a huge profit margin. There are many other pesticides that work without the adverse affects but won't make the chemical companies as rich. It is all a question of profit margin and if the companies actually cared about the welfare of the children they would do the humanitarian thing and discount their product in a big way. Don't hold your breath.
#1. The other pesticides don't work as well, so your exposure is higher. Beyond that, the consumer has to buy more therefore making the companies MORE money.
#2. To continually berate companies as not caring about some group (especially children) is just plain infantile. Companies are made up of people and they have kids.
#3. I would be willing to bet you a ton of money that the companies DO discount they product for the poor, destitute and people in our society who would rather have others take care of their responsibilities.
Why do you thing stuff costs so much for those of us who actually WORK in society?
