Dihydrogen Monoxide

As it seems to be the current fashion to use this forum to warn people of the cover-up conspiracies I find it somewhat surprising that no-one has raised the issue of Dihydrogen Monoxide.
This is an incredibly dangerous substance and is the primary cause of accidental death throughout the world - and yet no government will do anything about banning it's use.
    Dihydrogen monoxide:
        * is called "hydroxyl acid", the substance is the major component of acid rain.
        * contributes to the "greenhouse effect".
        * 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. Even after washing, produce remains contaminated by this chemical.
        * as an additive in certain "junk-foods" and other food products.
There's plenty of information about this here: http://www.dhmo.org/

Re: Dihydrogen Monoxide

You'd be surprised how much of it we put into shampoo's and other personal care products here at our factory too. (I'm not going to name the brands we manufacture on behalf of, but there are lots of the big names made here!)

I work in the nuclear industry, and I can confirm that the above (in bold) is TRUE.
I suspect that even our coffee machines may contain some of this substance.
PS - Is this classed as 'troll bait'?

Re: Dihydrogen Monoxide

I'm glad you've finally seen the light, Jelv - the very existence of this stuff has been worrying me for decades.  In this nanny-state era I'm amazed that the govmint haven't banned it, or at least declared it to be a controlled substance.
What bothers me most is the way many young people regard it as a trendy thing and consume frightening amounts of the stuff, even carrying bottles of it around in public as if they were fashion accessories.
Personally I've never been tempted to partake of it, but the temptation is all too real and horrifying consequences follow over-consumption of it.  I, however, have bravely resisted the lure of this noxious substance and continue to drink my Scotch straight.
Please help spread the word people, before it's too late and we start losing friends to it.
This stuff can kill - here's proof of it....

Re: Dihydrogen Monoxide

There is lots of it around here in Essex, and most of it is imported stuff from Denver

Re: Dihydrogen Monoxide

TRUTH banned
I don't think you have appreciated the depth of the conspiracy here. Of course there are websites alleging it's a hoax - who do you think created the information on those websites? They'd stoop to anything to stop people learning the truth.
The information given on http://www.dhmo.org/ is 100% accurate.

Re: Dihydrogen Monoxide


No jelv, I believe TRUTH banned's links.
Unfortunately this means that I now have to go back to my line manager and get the coffee machine taken off quarantine. Most of my colleagues have been without caffeine all day, and there's a lot of computer rage about.

I'll have to be careful on the way home tonight

Re: Dihydrogen Monoxide


It is possible to get water intoxication, but they appear to be saying its the name that`s the hoax,
and not the fact that its possible to drink too much water.
We know that its essential to have the right balance of sugar /salt in the body, & therefore if a
person was silly enough to totally flood their body with water then that balance would become out
of sinc.
But I cant help but wonder: who`s gonna want to drink that much water?
Tap water is yuk.
I wouldnt mind having one of those `machines` (dunno what they`re called)  I was told you can rent
them, but I reckon they could be expensive.  
Water in the right proportions is good for the body, and they reckon that ppl dont drink enough of it, &
if they drank more then many of their common everyday ailments wouldnt exist.
But, like with everything in life.....    too much or too little can be bad.

Re: Dihydrogen Monoxide


Several years ago a doctor wrote a very good report about the benefits of water,
and how it can cure many everyday ailments.
http://watercure.com/
However, I`m sure he wasnt referring to bottled water lol.
Probably not even tap water either.
You`re right about all the chemicals.
