The review is an in-depth scientific literature search on the safety and efficacy of substitute chemical registered by EPA as a possible replacement for cancelled or suspended pesticide or pesticides in litigation. This report on Malathion, a pesticide substituting for some uses of DDT, reviews the chemistry and analytical methods, its toxicity to laboratory and domestic animals and to humans, its effects on the environment, and its use patterns, costs and efficacy. The review is a compilation and summarization rather than an interpretation of published and unpublished scientific test and use data from various sources.
