Dhmo

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I found a website about DHMO the other day and it had some alarming inormation. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I've never even heard of it before. Thanks in advance.

Should I be concerned about Dihydrogen Monoxide?


Yes, you should be concerned about DHMO! Although the U.S. Government and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) do not classify Dihydrogen Monoxide as a toxic or carcinogenic substance (as it does with better known chemicals such as hydrochloric acid and benzene), DHMO is a constituent of many known toxic substances, diseases and disease-causing agents, environmental hazards and can even be lethal to humans in quantities as small as a thimbleful.
Research conducted by award-winning U.S. scientist Nathan Zohner concluded that roughly 86 percent of the population supports a ban on dihydrogen monoxide. Although his results are preliminary, Zohner believes people need to pay closer attention to the information presented to them regarding Dihydrogen Monoxide. He adds that if more people knew the truth about DHMO then studies like the one he conducted would not be necessary.
A similar study conducted by U.S. researchers Patrick K. McCluskey and Matthew Kulick also found that nearly 90 percent of the citizens participating in their study were willing to sign a petition to support an outright ban on the use of Dihydrogen Monoxide in the United States.

I think you've been April Fooled.

Dihydrogen Monoxide is water (H2O).

OH! That'll teach me to check snopes before I believe chain emails.

Lol!

(I'm glad there's not one more thing out there for me to add to my anxiety list!)
