Samuel A. Cordeiro CHM 130-03 October 2, 2007 Quiz 2 As the Health Minister of this Latin American country, I shall make my decisions on what I believe to be the best decision possible for the country now and in the future. I understand that we are projecting an extra heavy crop of mosquitoes this coming year. Along with mosquitoes, come many mosquito borne diseases. We as a country have a very limited supply of pesticide and do not have the funds to obtain what is needed. We only have the funds to buy DDT through the black market. DDT may be used as a pesticide, however if we use DDT it will lead to many long term problems. DDT will contaminate our water and soil. Our animals will get contaminated too, which may lead to mutations in their offspring. As Health Minister of this country, I refuse to but DDT and place it around our country.

I feel it will be for the best of our country, our children, and our children’s children to keep DDT away from us. Nevertheless, this will be a very difficult year. Be extra careful this year from all mosquitoes that are around us. This year will be a live experiment of Survival of the Fittest . Each and every one of you are strong, and I believe we will be able to get through this as long as we try our hardest to watch our surroundings and keep our households free from mosquitoes....
