The chain of life
Depicts man as the end link in "The Chain of Life" and indicates that he is limiting his own survival by destroying other links in the chain. Explains that a healthy environment is as essential to the survival of man as to plants and animals, since man must ultimately consume plants and animals. Points out that pesticide controls can be biological rather than chemical, but consumers prefer "pretty" fruit to the blemished skin of safe fruit. Emphasizes that industries prefer chemical to biological control for economic reasons.
