The FactsEdit

Dihydrogen monoxide, sometimes called "hydroxyl acid", is a chemical that:

  • is the major component of Acid rain.
  • contributes to the "greenhouse effect".
  • may cause severe burns.
  • contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape.
  • accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals.
  • may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
  • 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.
  • 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. [1]

  • In one of its solid forms dihydrogen monoxide can make roads and pathways slippery causing sometimes severe accidents while in another more crystalline solid form it blocks roads and railway tracks at great economic cost in susceptible areas.
  • It has even been found in babyfood!
