Endosulfan Chemical

I just watched the news lastnight and i was so shocked when they reported that there was a Endosufan Chemical on the ferry MV Princess of the Stars. This is very dangerous chemical. All the rescuer's, diver's we're ask to be checked by doctors just to make sure that they are not affected. They are now planning on how to get those chemical inside the ferry. And now many families we're so sad cause the retrieval operations for dead bodies we're stop because of the Endosulfan Chemical.

Info for Endosulfan:
Endosulfan is one of the more toxic pesticides on the market today, responsible for many fatal pesticide poisoning incidents around the world.[17] Endosulfan is also a xenoestrogen—a synthetic substance that imitates or enhances the effect of estrogens—and it can act as an endocrine disruptor, causing reproductive and developmental damage in both animals and humans. Whether endosulfan can cause cancer is debated.

Excuse me. I don't agree with your post.

"Endosulfan is one of the more toxic pesticides on the market today"

This statement is incorrect. The chemical is moderately hazardous as per WHO classification. There are many widely used chemicals which are higher in the classification than Endosulfan. Let us not even go by these words! There is a logic behind the classification. Check the WHO website if you don't believe me.
