Dihydrogen Monoxide: The Invisible Killer
There is a chemical that has been used for well over one hundred years and its use must be stopped! The Association for Environmental Activism is dedicated to seeing that its use comes to a swift end. Dihydrogen monoxide (DHMO) is colorless, odorless, tasteless and kills 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 tissue damage. Symptoms of DHMO ingestion can include excessive sweating and urination, possibly a bloated feeling, nausea, vomiting, and body electrolyte imbalance.
Contamination is reaching epidemic proportions in many modern societies. Dozens of arid countries have spent millions of dollars in research money to extract it in its pure form from our planet's oceans. 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. DHMO has caused millions of dollars of property damage in the midwest and recently in California.
Despite the danger, dihydrogen monoxide is often used as an industrial solvent, in nuclear power plants, in the production of styrofoam and as a fire retardant.
Pharmaceutical companies have put DHMO to use in large quantities in conjunction with many forms of cruel animal research. It has been linked to the distribution of pesticides and is often sprayed on crops of all kind. Even after washing, produce remains contaminated by this chemical.
Nutritionists have recognized DHMO as an additive in certain food products for decades but have been reluctant to speak out to the public about the vast quantities of this chemical being used in most foods.
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!
Our 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 and civilian 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!
Ask a chemist, your local high school science teacher, or university chemistry professor about the exact composition of this chemical!
Also called hydroxl acid or dihydrous oxide, it is a component of acid rain.
It contributes to the "greenhouse effect."
It may cause severe burns as a vapor.
It contributes to the erosion of our beautiful natural landscape.
Accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals and may be affecting your car.
Causes electrical failure and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
It has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.
The Deadly Statistics:
In the year 2000, according to the Children's Safety Zone,
There were a total of 210 reported DHMO related incidents.
64 Deaths. Out of those 64, 28 were children and 36 were adults.
By way of comparison, there were 43 deaths the previous year out of 160 incidents.
And so far in the year 2001, there have been 58 deaths (27 children) out of only 183 incidents.
Tell every one you know to support all efforts to ban this colorless and tasteless, deadly substance.
