DDT Not Harmful

I was surprised to hear recently an environmentalist mention (in passing) about DDT in birds. I thought it was well known that the DDT scare was phony, that DDT does far more good than it does harm, and that everyone, including evironmentalists, should help dispel this myth.
Here are some links:
Why DDT was banned...The lies of Rachel Carson Carson's book started the whole war against DDT.
Malaria Still Winning The part about DDTs is in bold.
Insecticides This site is less biased, and does show some harm in birds (shell size), but not humans.
What the World needs now is DDT, title says it all (long) NY Times.
