Re: GBlist: Malathion
The PANNA (Pesticide Action Network North America)
website has some excellent resources for information on most any
pesticide you're likely to be interested in.
from the main page, select the "Health and Environmental Impacts"
link, the PESTIS database or the ExToxNet fact sheets should give you
a good overview.
I would certainly take any reference to widespread aerial application
of malathion as heing "harmlese" with a large grain of salt.
Hope this helps. I would be interested in any followups about the
spraying campaign. Good luck!
