    Ugandan activist (and student) Steven Lyazi writes passionately that the West is both hypocritical and imperialistic in dictating policies to Africans that were good enough for Western nations half a century ago and could save millions of African lives — and generate up to $100 billion a year to the Afrcican economiy just from allowing the use of DDT to fight malaria. DDT use reduces death from malaria by 80% or more — and Lyazi himself is a two-time malaria survivor who notes that most Africans lack the money to pay for the costly, time-consuming treatment for this killer disease that the West eradicated 70 years ago using DDT.
