DDT

DDT was the first modern pesticide and is arguably the most well known organic pesticide.

Overall, it is known that DDT concentrates in biological systems (particularly in body fat), that it is a toxin, and that it bioaccumulates up the food chain, reaching its greatest concentrations in higher animals such as humans.
