They are also products of chemical warfare. They kill by nerve poisoning and asphyxiation. They should be banned. Although DDT soon became synonymous with poison, the pesticide was an effective weapon in the fight against an infection that has killed—and continues to kill.

Cholinesterase inhibitors are a group of chemical compounds used in everything from chemical weapons to pesticides designed to kill bugs, and human medicines designed to alleviate symptoms of Alzheimer's and other types of dementia.

Nerve gases and the so-called "Novichok" group of chemicals are also cholinesterase inhibitors. DDT is one of the most controversial chemical compounds in recent history. It has proven effective as an insecticide, but its potent toxicity isn't limited to by many countries including the United States, DDT is nonetheless still used—legally or illegally—in some places.

Zyklon B (German: [tsyˈkloːn ˈbeː] (); translated Cyclone B) was the trade name of a cyanide-based pesticide invented in Germany in the early consisted of hydrogen cyanide (prussic acid), as well as a cautionary eye irritant and one of several adsorbents such as diatomaceous product is notorious for its use by Nazi Germany during the Holocaust to murder approximately   Reduction of this symbiotic chemical results in reduced nitrogen fixation.
