''Despite the fact that DDT is a
highly lethal poison for all species of animals, the myth has become prevalent
among the general population that it is safe for man in virtually any quantity.
Not only is it used in households with reckless abandon, so that sprays and
aerosols are inhaled, the solutions are permitted to contaminate the skin.
Bedding and other textiles are saturated. Food and food utensils are
contaminated. DDT is also widely used in restaurants and food processing
establishments and as an insecticide on crops.
Cattle, sheep and other food animals are extensively dusted with it and large areas are indiscriminately sprayed from airplanes for mosquito control. DDT is difficult and usually completely impossible to remove from contaminated foods (it is not affected by cooking) and it accumulates in the fat and appears in the milk of animals who feed on sprayed pasture or on contaminated fodder or who lick the DDT from their hides.
As DDT is a cumulative poison, it is inevitable that large-scale intoxication of the American population would occur. In 1944, Smith and Stohlman of the National Institutes of Health, after an extensive study of the cumulative toxicity of DDT, pointed out, “The toxicity of DDT combined with its cumulative action and absorbability from the skin places a definite health hazard on its use.” ~ M. Biskind, “DDT Poisoning and the Elusive 'Virus X': A New Cause for Gastroenteritis,” American Journal of Digestive Diseases, vol. 16, no. 3, 1949, pp. 79–84.

In North Africa there was an extremely high incidence of liver affections, almost invariably called "infectious hepatitis." There is no way to be certain that this diagnosis is accurate except that, as indicated by its name, it is transmissable. In the presence of actual cases of this type, and there is no doubt that there were many, the occurrence of another type of liver damage would readily be overlooked. Actually, as Dr. F. M. Pottenger, Jr., has found, there is excellent evidence that a great many of these cases were actually DDT hepatitis.
