Australian writers An insecticide is a substance employed to destroy insects. It is significant that the word dates from the mid-19th century; only since then has any real
progress been made in preventing the attacks and subsequent damage of insects, formerly regarded as unavoidable. Most of the earlier methods were based on the
recommendations of such writers as the Roman author Pliny or upon folklore. A few were soundly based on observation and experience, but most were fanciful stories of

V Effects on Children
Answer the questions according to the reading.

This poll also discovered, however, that most people thought that individuals should take responsibility to correct the problems. The vast majority favored such solutions as tighter parental supervision, warning labels on records, and voluntary self-restraints by entertainment companies. Only 27 per cent favored government censorship. At the same time, there was growing concern about the impact of television on children.
