Dihydrogen monoxide or DHMO is also called “hydroxyl acid.”
Hey, did anyone notice this was posted on April 1? – Ed
Clearly the EPA must regulate DHMO because it:
- is the major component of acid rain.
- contributes to the “greenhouse effect”.
- contains high levels of hydrogen.
- may cause severe burns.
- is fatal if inhaled.
- 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.
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.
- as an additive in certain “junk-foods” and other food products.
