"Silent Spring" by Rachel Carson
The book I read is called "Silent Spring," written by Rachel Carson and published in 1962.
The whole book was an alarmed appeal to everybody who used insecticides and especially who used DDT.
The book mostly describes how DDT is used by people and how it enters the food chain and causes cancer and genetic damage. It also describes how other chemicals such as Dieldrin and Aldrin kill birds, fishes, and humans. An example of how DDT (= dichloro-diphenyl-trichloro-ethane) can kill humans is the story of a woman who sprayed DDT for spiders in her basement and died a month later because of lukemia.
