dow stands by the safety of insecticide which can harm the brains of fetuses

​IN MY DOTAGE, I find myself constantly (if merely mildly) consternated by the goings-on of my fellow humans. When confronted by their (possibly insecticide-inspired) shenanigans and the fact that so many appear permanently stuck in auto-destruct mode, to soothe my troubled mind I often reach for the 1979 movie Life Of Brian.
