Dihydrogen Monoxide (or DHMO) has been implicated in the deaths of thousands and thousands of Americans every year, mainly through accidental ingestion - and in gaseous form, it can even cause severe burns.
According to reports, the dangers of this chemical do not end there. The chemical is so caustic that it can cause nausea, vomitting and body electrolyte balance and has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients, eventually leading to death.
Symptoms of ingestion of Dihydrogen Monoxide include excessive sweating and excessive urination, and, for those who have developed a dependency on DHMO, complete withdrawal means certain death.
Yet, the presence of the chemical has been confirmed in every river, stream, lake, reservoir in America but is, indeed, a global phenomenon; it is even found in Antarctic ice.
The worst part of it is that Dihydrogen Monoxide in one form or another is found in most food stuffs.
The tricky part of Dihydrogen Monoxide is that in its solid form it's basically odorless, colorless and tasteless, rendering it a silent killer.
Each year, Dihydrogen Monoxide is a known causative component in many thousands of deaths and is a major contributor to millions upon millions of dollars in damage to property and the environment. Some of the known perils of Dihydrogen Monoxide are:
.death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO, even in small quantities.
.prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.
.excessive ingestion produces a number of unpleasant though not typically life-threatening side-effects.
.as a major component of acid rain.
.in gaseous form it can cause severe burns.
.contributes to soil erosion.
.leads to corrosion and oxidation of many metals.
.contamination of electrical systems often causes short-circuits.
.is found in biopsies of pre-cancerous tumors and lesions.
.it's given to vicious dogs involved in deadly attacks.
.often associated with killer cyclones in the U.S. Midwest and elsewhere, and in hurricanes including deadly storms in Florida, New Orleans and other areas of the southeastern U.S.
.thermal variations in DHMO are a suspected contributor to the El Nino weather effect.
Some list uh?
Despite the known dangers of DHMO, it continues to be used daily by industry, government, and even in private homes across the U.S. and worldwide. Some of the well-known uses of Dihydrogen Monoxide are:
.as an industrial solvent and coolant, in nuclear power plants,
.by the U.S. Navy in the propulsion systems of some older vessels,
.by elite athletes to improve performance,
.in the production of Styrofoam,
.in biological and chemical weapons manufacture,
.in the development of genetically engineering crops and animals,
.as a spray-on fire suppressant and retardant,
.in so-called "family planning" or "reproductive health" clinics,
.as a major ingredient in many home-brewed bombs,
.as a byproduct of hydrocarbon combustion in furnaces and air conditioning compressor operation,
.in cult rituals,
.by the Church of Scientology on their members and their members' families (although surprisingly, many members recently have contacted DHMO.org to vehemently deny such use),
.by both the KKK and the NAACP during rallies and marches,
.by members of Congress who are under investigation for financial corruption and inappropriate IM behavior,
.by the clientele at a number of bath houses in New York City and San Francisco,
.historically, in Hitler's death camps in Nazi Germany,
.in prisons in Turkey, Serbia, Croatia, Libya, Iraq and Iran,
.in World War II prison camps in Japan,
.in prisons in China for various forms of torture,
.during many recent religious and ethnic wars in the Middle East,
.by many terrorist organizations including al Quaeda,
.in community swimming pools to maintain chemical balance,
.in day care centers, purportedly for sanitary purposes,
.by software engineers, including those producing DICOM programmer APIs and other DICOM software tools,
.by popular computer science professors,
.by the semi-divine King Bhumibol of Thailand and his many devoted young working girls in Bangkok,
.by the British Chiropractic Association and the purveyors of the bogus treatments that the BCA promotes,
.by commodities giant Trafigura in their well-publicized and widely-known toxic-waste dumping activities in Ivory Coast,
.in animal research laboratories, and in pesticide production and distribution.
What you may find disturbing as well are some of the products in which, and places where, DHMO is used, but which for one reason or another are not normally made part of public presentations on the dangers to the lives of our family members and friends. Among these startling uses are:
.as an additive to food products, including jarred baby food and baby formula, and even in many soups, carbonated beverages and supposedly "all-natural" fruit juices
.in cough medicines and other liquid pharmaceuticals,
.in spray-on oven cleaners,
.in shampoos, shaving creams, deodorants and numerous other bathroom products,
.in bathtub bubble products marketed to children,
.as a preservative in grocery store fresh produce sections,
.in the production of beer by all the major beer distributors,
.in the coffee available at major coffee houses in the US and abroad,
.in Formula One race cars, although its use is regulated by the Formula One Racing Commission, and
.as a target of ongoing NASA planetary and stellar research.
The list is almost endless.
One of the most surprising facts recently revealed about Dihydrogen Monoxide contamination is in its use as a food and produce "decontaminant." Studies have shown that even after careful washing, food and produce that has been contaminated by DHMO remains tainted by DHMO.
Judging from these facts, don't you think it's about time for dihydrogen monoxide to be banned?
