Use of DDT and other POP’s. Also the use of GMO’s

Hi! I’ve been doing some research and I saw that the use of DDT almost erradicated malaria in a lot of countries and saved 500 million people by 1970’s, but by fear of hurting the bird population and damagin the human health (even thought there wasn’t any concrete evidence or research in the 70’s that could support it) its use declined and allowed malaria to make an even stronger comeback to countries where the malaria cases where 1500 per year. So, why don’t we bring back DDT? since its has been proven that is that most effect weapon against malaria and its benefits outweights the damages. Also would like to know that if we implement the DDT, what methods could we use to regulate it. Also I would like to know what are the thought in this community about the use of GMO’s? does the benefits outweight the damages? Thank you for reading this!
