+ - The dangers of DiHydrogenMOnoxide (DHMO) 1

Submitted by golodh
golodh (893453) writes "DiHydrogenMOnoxide (DHMO) is a sadly underreported chemical which nonetheless, on an annual basis, claims thousands of casualties world-wide. Despite incontrovertible evidence on this score, leading politicians drag their feet when it comes to regulation or banning of this substance. In spite of a direct query for information, the EPA refused to deny the existence of a coverup.

A few facts:

* DHMO contributes to global warming and the "Greenhouse Effect", and is one of the so-called "greenhouse gases."

* DHMO is an "enabling component" of acid rain — in the absence of sufficient quantities of DHMO, acid rain is not a problem.

* DHMO is a causative agent in most instances of soil erosion — sufficiently high levels of DHMO exacerbate the negative effects of soil erosion.

* DHMO is present in high levels nearly every creek, stream, pond, river, lake and reservoir in the U.S. and around the world.

* Measurable levels of DHMO have been verified in ice samples taken from both the Arctic and Antarctic ice caps.

* Recent massive DHMO exposures have lead to the loss of life and destruction of property in California, the Mid-West, the Philippines, and a number of islands in the Caribbean, to name just a few.

* Research has shown that significant levels of DHMO were found in the devastating Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004 which killed 230,000 in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and elsewhere, making it the deadliest tsunami in recorded history.

* It is widely believed that the levee failures, flooding and the widespread destruction resulting from Hurricane Katrina along the U.S. Gulf Coast in 2005 were caused or exacerbated by excessive DHMO levels found in the Gulf of Mexico, along with other contributing factors.
