"DDT so safe you can eat it", 1947. This is clipped from the record of the 1946 campaign to check an epidemic of malaria in the Kipsigis tribal reserve in N-W Kenya by spraying village huts with DDT. A team of public health workers were sent in to convince villagers that spraying would help stop the disease. When skeptical headman, Arap Kipkoi, resist DDT as poisonous, the British officer had DDT sprayed on a bowl of porridge and then eats a mouthful to prove DDT is not dangerous to humans.
