  • The cons were that it made people sick and could cause birth defects in babies making it harder for them to do some things
  • DTT was outlawed because it made lots of people sick and lots of the babies with birth defects weren't surviving
  • My opinion is that I'm happy its gone and I hope we can make better pesticides that don't harm us or untargeted species
