What are some of the dangers associated with DHMO?

Each year, Dihydrogen Monoxide is a known causative component in many thousands of deaths and is a major contributor to millions upon millions of dollars in damage to property and the environment. Some of the known perils of Dihydrogen Monoxide are:

1. Death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO, even in small quantities.

2. Prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.

3. Excessive ingestion produces a number of unpleasant though not typically life-threatening side-effects.

4. DHMO is a major component of acid rain.

5. Gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns.

6. Contributes to soil erosion.

7. Leads to corrosion and oxidation of many metals.

8. Contamination of electrical systems often causes short-circuits.

9. Exposure decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes.

10. Found in biopsies of pre-cancerous tumors and lesions.

11. Given to vicious dogs involved in recent deadly attacks.

12. Often associated with killer cyclones in the U.S. Midwest and elsewhere, and in hurricanes including deadly storms in Florida, New Orleans and other areas of the southeastern U.S.

13. Thermal variations in DHMO are a suspected contributor to the El Nino weather effect.

 

What are some uses of Dihydrogen Monoxide?

Despite the known dangers of DHMO, it continues to be used daily by industry, government, and even in private homes across the U.S. and worldwide. Some of the well-known uses of Dihydrogen Monoxide are:

as an industrial solvent and coolant,

in nuclear power plants,

by the U.S. Navy in the propulsion systems of some older vessels,

by elite athletes to improve performance,

in the production of Styrofoam,

in biological and chemical weapons manufacture,

in the development of genetically engineering crops and animals,

as a spray-on fire suppressant and retardant,

in so-called "family planning" or "reproductive health" clinics,

as a major ingredient in many home-brewed bombs,

as a byproduct of hydrocarbon combustion in furnaces and air conditioning compressor operation,

in cult rituals,

by the Church of Scientology on their members and their members' families (although surprisingly, many members recently have contacted DHMO.org to vehemently deny such use),

by both the KKK and the NAACP during rallies and marches,

by members of Congress who are under investigation for financial corruption and inappropriate IM behavior,

by  kids who play Beyblades,

by the clientele at a number of bath houses in New York City and San Francisco,

historically, in Hitler's death camps in Nazi Germany, and in prisons in Turkey, Serbia, Croatia, Libya, Iraq and Iran,

in World War II prison camps in Japan, and in prisons in China, for various forms of torture,

during many recent religious and ethnic wars in the Middle East,

by many terrorist organizations including al Qaeda,

in community swimming pools to maintain chemical balance,

in day care centers, purportedly for sanitary purposes,

by software engineers, including those producingDICOM software and other DICOM software tools,

by popular computer science professors,

by aspiring young adult fiction writers and mental health advocates,

by international travel bloggers,

by the semi-divine King Bhumibol of Thailand and his many devoted young working girls in Bangkok,

by the British Chiropractic Association and the purveyors of the bogus treatments that the BCA promotes,

by commodities giant Trafigura in their well-publicized and widely-known toxic-waste dumping activities in Ivory Coast,

in animal research laboratories, and

in pesticide production and distribution.

What you may find surprising are some of the products and places where DHMO is used, but which for one reason or another, are not normally made part of public presentations on the dangers to the lives of our family members and friends. Among these startling uses are:

as an additive to food products, including jarred baby food and baby formula, and even in many soups, carbonated beverages and supposedly "all-natural" fruit juices

in cough medicines and other liquid pharmaceuticals,

in spray-on oven cleaners,

in shampoos, shaving creams, deodorants and numerous other bathroom products,

in bathtub bubble products marketed to children,

as a preservative in grocery store fresh produce sections,

in the production of beer by all the major beer distributors,

in the coffee available at major coffee houses in the US and abroad,

in Formula One race cars, although its use is regulated by the Formula One Racing Commission, and

as a target of ongoing NASA planetary and stellar research.

 

One of the most surprising facts recently revealed about Dihydrogen Monoxide contamination is in its use as a food and produce "decontaminant." Studies have shown that even after careful washing, food and produce that has been contaminated by DHMO remains tainted by DHMO.

 

What is the link between Dihydrogen Monoxide and gun violence?

The incidence of gun violence seems to be rising at an alarming rate. A recent stunning revelation is that in every single instance of violence involving guns, both in the U.S. and internationally, Dihydrogen Monoxide was involved. In fact, DHMO is often very available to those who would do harm to others. Meanwhile, apparently no efforts have been made to limit the availability of this potentially dangerous chemical compound.

 

How does Dihydrogen Monoxide toxicity affect kidney dialysis patients?

Unfortunately, DHMO overdose is not unheard of in patients undergoing dialysis treatments for kidney failure. Dihydrogen Monoxide overdose in these patients can result in congestive heart failure, pulmonary edema and hypertension. In spite of the danger of accidental overdose and the inherent toxicity of DHMO in large quantities for this group, there is a portion of the dialysis treated population that continues to use DHMO on a regular basis.

 

Are there groups that oppose a ban on Dihydrogen Monoxide?

In spite of overwhelming evidence, there is one group in California that opposes a ban on Dihydrogen Monoxide. The Friends of Hydrogen Hydroxide is a group that believes that the dangers of DHMO have been exaggerated. Members claim that Dihydrogen Monoxide, or the less emotionally charged and more chemically accurate term they advocate for it, "Hydrogen Hydroxide," is beneficial, environmentally safe, benign and naturally occurring. They argue that efforts to ban DHMO are misguided.

Friends of Hydrogen Hydroxide is supported by the Scorched Earth Party, a radical and loosely-organized California-based group. Sources close to the Scorched Earth Party deny any outside funding from government, industry or pro-industry PACs.

 

Has the press ignored this web site and the Dihydrogen Monoxide problem?

For the most part, the press has not reported on the dangers of Dihydrogen Monoxide as much as some would like. Although many private individuals have put up web sites in a major grassroots effort to spread the word, major publications have not.

Recently, attention has been paid to the subject thanks to an incident in Aliso Viejo, California.  This so-called Aliso Viejo Incident was widely reported in the media, although the director of DHMO.org, Dr. Tom Way, was called a "prankster."  Once the Associated Press started circulating the story, it became fact, and the valuable information being provided by the DHMO.org website was deemed to be "rubbish" rather than an honest and unbiased recounting of facts about a dangerous, life-endangering chemical compound.

If you are a member of the press, you may access our onlinePress Kit.  See the main page for access information.  This resource is for members of the press only.

 

Is it true that using DHMO improves athletic performance?

Absolutely! With the numerous allegations of amateur and professional athletes using anabolic steroids and/or blood doping to enhance performance, virtually no attention has been paid to the performance enhancing properties of Dihydrogen Monoxide. It is perhaps the sporting world's dirtiest of dirty little secrets that athletes regularly ingest large quantities of DHMO in an effort to gain a competitive edge over an opponent.

One technique commonly used by endurance athletes in sports such as distance running and cycling is to take a large amount of DHMO immediately prior to a race. This is known within racing circles to dramatically improve performance.

Sports-medicine physicians warn that ingesting too much Dihydrogen Monoxide can lead to complications and unwanted side-effects, but do acknowledge the link to improved performance. DHMO is not currently considered a banned substance, so post-race urine tests do not detect elevated or abnormal levels of DHMO.

 

Can using DHMO improve my marriage?

This is a popular myth, but one which is also actually supported by a number of scientific facts. Dihydrogen Monoxide plays an instrumental role in the centers of the brain associated with feelings of emotional attachment and love. Married couples have found that regular ingestion of DHMO can improve their marriage-related activities, while couples that never ingest DHMO often find that their marriage suffers as well. 

 

What are the symptoms of accidental Dihydrogen Monoxide overdose?

You may not always recognize that you have been a victim of accidental DHMO overdose, so here are some signs and symptoms to look for. If you suspect Dihydrogen Monoxide overdose, or if you exhibit any of these symptoms, you should consult with your physician or medical practitioner. The data presented here is provided for informational purposes only, and should in no way be construed as medical advice of any sort.

Watch for these symptoms:

 

Excessive sweating

Excessive urination

Bloated feeling

Nausea

Vomiting

Electrolyte imbalance

Hyponatremia (serum hypotonicity)

Dangerously imbalanced levels of ECF and ICF in the blood

Degeneration of sodium homeostasis

 

A recently noted medical phenomenon involves small amounts of DHMO leaking or oozing from the corners of the eyes as a direct result of causes such as foreign particulate irritation, allergic reactions including anaphylactic shock, and sometimes severe chemical depression.

 

What is a chemical analysis of Dihydrogen Monoxide

Recently, German analytical chemist Christoph von Bueltzingsloewen at the Universitaet Regensburg identified what may be key reasons why the dangers of DHMO are ever present. According to von Bueltzingsloewen, the chemical separation of dihydrogenoxide from the hazardous oxygendihydride is extremely difficult. The two similar compounds curiously occur in nearly equimolar distribution wherever they are found. It is not clear how the two contribute directly to the dangers inherent in Dihydrogen Monoxide, although von Bueltzingsloewen believes that a synergetic mechanism, catalyzed by traces of hydrogenhydroxide, plays a major role.

 

What can I do to minimize the risks?

Fortunately, there is much you can do to minimize your dangers due to Dihydrogen Monoxide exposure. First, use common sense. Whenever you are dealing with any product or food that you feel may be contaminated with DHMO, evaluate the relative danger to you and your family, and act accordingly. Keep in mind that in many instances, low-levels of Dihydrogen Monoxide contamination are not dangerous, and in fact, are virtually unavoidable. Remember, the responsibility for your safety and the safety of your family lies with you.

Second, exercise caution when there is the potential for accidental inhalation or ingestion of DHMO. If you feel uncomfortable, remove yourself from a dangerous situation. Better safe than sorry.

Third, don't panic. Although the dangers of Dihydrogen Monoxide are very real, by exercising caution and common sense, you can rest assured knowing that you are doing everything possible to keep you and your family safe.

When I hit this one, I had to stop and think.  How is this possible?  When have you ever known any single factor to be present in every incidence of a type of crime?

 

I have my doubts about the accuracy of this entire post.

Y'know, this stuff is available over the counter, and I don't think there are any legal proscriptions to minors accessing it!
Any scuttle on efforts to registration of this dangerous stuff?

I don't believe there's any proof that it causes gun violence, but in every single instance of gun violence, both here in the states and abroad, the perpetrator has been partaking of it. Usually for quite some time.

Thanks for your support. Research continues on but the best ratio still seems to be a glass of whiskey and 1 or 2 HDMO crotons.   Limited exposure seems best    GW

Marty Robbins wrote and sang a heartbreaking song about withdrawal from DHMO addiction.  All about a young man out for a hike in our beautiful desert southwest.  Instead of enjoying the solitude and scenery, he's jones-ing for his next fix of the stuff.  Like I said, heartbreaking.

 

"Keep a movin', Dan.

  Don't ya listen to him, Dan."

Excessive amounts of it can wash away roads and houses, as has happened right here in Colorado in the past couple of days! :o  In its solid phase, falling from the sky it can cause severe damage to cars and roofs!

I hear you!

 

 It is often used for power generation, and the government claims it is clean power.

 

There is at least an attempt to contain it, often with concrete walls hundreds of feet thick. But when those containers fail -- and they do fail -- then people die.

 

And when the containers get too full (it seems the government can't control production and just limit it to what is needed), they then release it directly into our rivers where it flows to the ocean; the change in ocean salinity from these river releases is detectible for many miles off-shore. Why, if the government only has capacity to store a certain amount, there ends up times with a surplus? Follow the money, I say! Follow the money!

 

Yes, it is our own government that has set up huge networks to distribute this chemical across the nation. They have the gall to tell us it is safe enough to swim in yet those with even basic knowledge know it requires constant treatment with yet more chemicals to avoid illness. Without treatment, this compound can support significant growth of bacteria! Why would any sane person want to swim in that?
