Dihydrogen Monoxide … Dirty Little Secret
There’s a very real chemical thats hiding in nearly every single food that you feed your children and can be found in practically every single cosmetic and cleaning agent in your home. Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is perhaps the single most prevalent of all chemicals that can be dangerous to human life. Despite this truth, most people are not concerned about the dangers of Dihydrogen Monoxide. In fact, citizens across the nations seem to either be ignorant of or shrug off the truth about Dihydrogen Monoxide as not being applicable to them.
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.
Dihydrogen Monoxide has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.
The Dihydrogen Monoxide Research Division, an arm of the Environmental Assessment Center (EAC) lists these as the harmful side effects of DHMO:
- is also known as hydroxyl acid, and is the major component of acid rain.
- contributes to the “greenhouse effect”.
- in its gaseous form can cause severe burns.
- contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape.
- accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals.
- prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.
- may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
- death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO.
- has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.
Despite the danger, dihydrogen monoxide is often used:
- as an industrial solvent and coolant.
- in nuclear power plants.
- by the US Navy in the propulsion systems of some older vessels.
- in the production of styrofoam.
- as a fire retardant.
- in many forms of animal research.
- in the development of genetically engineering crops.
- in the production and distribution of pesticides. Even after washing, produce remains contaminated by DHMO.
- in community swimming pools to maintain chemical balance.
- as an additive in food products such as jared baby food and baby formula, in many soups, beverages including “all natural” fruit juices.
I beg of you my fellow Moms… please do not believe everything you read on a blog and make serious life choices because of it. Please take the time to find actual evidence, and please pay attention to how many advertisements are strategically placed on these fearful, eye-opening, horrific stories because some people are making bank on the knowledge that FEAR drives action, their stories will go viral and they will be paid. While some bloggers truly are HONEST and KNOWLEDGEABLE.
Because everyone NEEDS to know about the dangers of Dihydrogen Monoxide also known as WATER, and all those scary scientific words, side effects, and usage described abOVE are 100% totally true about water!
Happy April 1st. Happy Earth Month! XOXO Sarah aka Modern Green Geek
