1940s Videos Show Children Routinely Sprayed With DDT; The Toxic Effects Blamed on "Polio"
Shocking footage from the mid-1940s shows huge groups of people being sprayed with the pesticide DDT. The clips, taken from several newsreels from the time, show dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) being sprayed over people blissfully unaware of the danger they are in. The pesticide is sprayed on public roads, over swimmers at a pool and around diners eating around a dinner table.
[Note: The symptoms of DDT poisoning are identical to the symptoms of "poliomyelitis," a condition then blamed on an imaginary virus.]
