Dihydrogen Monoxide - The Invisible Killer
« on: February 22, 2003, 03:56:00 PM »

Dihydrogen monoxide (DHMO) is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and kills uncounted thousands of people every year. 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 swelling and 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.





DHMO






  • is the major component of acid rain

  • contributes to the "greenhouse effect"

  • contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape

  • accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals

  • may cause electrical failures

  • has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients





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 recently caused millions of dollars in property damage.


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



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 Horror Must be Stopped




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's Not Too Late



Act NOW to prevent further contamination. Find out more about this dangerous chemical. What you don't know CAN hurt you and others throughout the world. Send e-mail to [email protected], or a SASE to:

It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.

The government should ban the FDA.  FDA doesn't give a crap about safety or health.  It's just another financially motivated, wasteful, worthless government program.  The FDA might even be responsible for making sure the cure for this is not introduced to the United States.

The periodic table symbol for carbon dioxide is CO2. How would you write the pts for Dihydrogen Monoxide? Have you seen the Fnords?

First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.

I just think it's wrong to ban every thing all the time.  I'd rather see all the companies who use it or distribute it get boycotted by the voluntary, conciencious public.  That's where the real response would be, once these companies and government programs are going broke.

The most dangerous thing about it, though, is that humanity, increasingly, has developed such a dependancy on it's free and liberal availability that  now that it's becoming more scarce, the traffickers are starting to move in to gain control of a very lucrative market.  In Bolivia, for example, peasants have risen up to protest against the complicity of their government, DHMO traffickers, the WTO, IMF and the World Bank who have been financing the trafficker's takeover of this insidious compound.  I don't think we should stop with the FDA.  I think we need to take this issue to the UN.

Dihydrogen Monoxide

Wait a minute, tell me this is a joke. Isn't Dihydrogen Monoxide just water. Di=2 Mono=1

H20  

Now chemistry is not my bag but I am pretty sure I have heard this joke before. Of course I wouldn't put it past some of the environmental nutjobs to start telling us that water is dangerous, afterall meat, cheese, eggs, and leather are already dangerous to them.

Just when you thought you'd heard it all, Senator Biden opens his mouth again.

Illicit Drug Anti-Proliferation Act  (S. 226)
The RAVE Act Renamed - U.S. Senate
http://www.emdef.org/s226/

One of the criteria for identifying a "place for the purpose of manufacturing, distributing, or using any controlled substance" is the open sale of containers of DHMO in single dose quantities. I couldn't make this up.

Satirists accross the country, led by Jon Steward, are organizing against the Federal government for undercutting their job market. (ok, I could have made that up...)

Ardent advocates of prohibition were obsessed by a zeal that bordered on fanaticism. They supported politicians who voted to outlaw liquor, no matter how much of it they privately consumed, and spurned politicians who voted against prohibition, no matter how sober they were personally.
