    Should This Product Be Banned?

    After reading the following article, you decide if Dihydrogen Monoxide should be banned...


    Dihydrogen monoxide is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and kills uncounted thousands of people every year.
    What are the dangers of Dihydrogen Monoxide?

    Most of these deaths are caused by accidental inhalation of DHMO, but the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide do not end there. Prolonged exposure to its solid form causes severe tissue damage. Symptoms of DHMO ingestion can include excessive sweating and urination, and possibly a bloated feeling, nausea, vomiting and body electrolyte imbalance. For those who have become dependent, DHMO withdrawal means certain death.
    Dihydrogen Monoxide Facts

    Dihydrogen monoxide:
    • is also known as hydric acid, and is the major component of acid rain.
    • contributes to the Greenhouse Effect.
    • may cause severe burns.
    • contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape.
    • accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals.
    • may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
    • has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.
    • Research has shown that significant levels of DHMO were found in the devastating Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004 which killed 230,000 in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and elsewhere, making it the deadliest tsunami in recorded history.
    • It is widely believed that the levee failures, flooding and the widespread destruction resulting from Hurricane Katrina along the U.S. Gulf Coast in 2005 were caused or exacerbated by excessive DHMO levels found in the Gulf of Mexico, along with other contributing factors.

    Dihydrogen Monoxide Alerts

    Contamination is reaching epidemic proportions!

    Quantities of dihydrogen monoxide have been found in almost every stream, lake, and reservoir in America today. But the pollution is global, and the contaminant has even been found in Antarctic ice. In the midwest alone DHMO has caused millions of dollars of property damage. Dihydrogen Monoxide Uses

    Despite the danger, dihydrogen monoxide is often used:
    • as an industrial solvent and coolant.
    • in nuclear power plants.
    • in the production of styrofoam.
    • as a fire retardant.
    • in many forms of cruel animal research.
    • in the distribution of pesticides. Even after washing, produce remains contaminated by this chemical.
    • as an additive in certain junk-foods and other food products.
    Stop the horror - Ban Dihydrogen Monoxide

    Companies dump waste DHMO into rivers and the ocean, and nothing can be done to stop them because this practice is still legal. The impact on wildlife is extreme, and we cannot afford to ignore it any longer!

    The American government has refused to ban the production, distribution, or use of this damaging chemical due to its importance to the economic health of this nation. In fact, the navy and other military organizations are conducting experiments with DHMO, and designing multi-billion dollar devices to control and utilize it during warfare situations. Hundreds of military research facilities receive tons of it through a highly sophisticated underground distribution network. Many store large quantities for later use.

    it is quite safe when mixed with sufficient c2h5oh
    Just got my head together
    now my body's falling apart

      Add Birthdays to the list of hazardous substances/practices. Too many of them are bad for your health.

          Let's do everyone a favor and ban the EPA.

            haha...makes me rather thirsty just thinking about it.

              Check out the report on Snopes:

              BTW, WC Fields said he would not drink it because fish f**ked in it.

                  No cleanup cost would be to high, the stuff is in damn near everything.

                        I suspect that this has been around for awhile, but it’s still good for a laugh as every thing there is true.

                        Of course the moral here is whenever some so called environmentalist claims he is going to save the world you need to analyze carefully what he is saying so that you don’t wind up in effect trying to ban dihydrogen monoxide.

                          In my opinion, hydrogen hydroxide is just as dangerous .

                            Hey, let it go... might be hazardous, but after all, you ARE talking about folks who are so addicted to risk-taking and extreme behavior that they actually DRINK hot molten ice!

                            Keep eye on ball.
