Who was the first country to outlaw DDT?



  1. 0 Votes

    DDT first began receiving negative press in the 1960’s with the publication of Rachel Carson’s book, Silent Spring, which villified the pesticide for its destruction of ecosystems. Shortly after that time, in 1970, both Norway and Sweden became the first nations to ban DDT. The United States followed suit in 1972. Currently, there is much debate regarding the value of bans on DDT, particularly in African nations where malaria is prevalent.
