I’m working on a science project for school. While working on it, I discovered a huge health hazard that a chemical by the name of Dihydrogen monoxide can cause.
1. A small amount of Dihydrogen monoxide can drown a child.
2. Large traces of this chemical is found in the air, and during when its most humid, it can greatly harm asthmatics and increase their chance of an attack.
3. It can cause excessive sweating and vomiting
4. It’s a major component of acid rain
5. It can cause severe burns in its gaseous state
6. Accidental inhalation can kill you
7. It contributes to erosion
8. It decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes
9. It has been found in tumors of terminal cancer
10. Great amounts of this chemical is now found in public pools

There are many other harmful effects that the chemical dihydrogen monoxide can cause. These are just to name a few. I’m going to start a world wide petition, but before I do, I would like to see how many would actually care to learn more about this. So please vote inshallah. Jazakum Allahu Khair.

This Poll only applies to residents of the USA and UK.

We need to consider all these factors before making a choice :)

Dihydrogen monoxide hoax

Source: Wikipedia 2007

"The logo of DHMO.org, primary current residence of the dihydrogen monoxide hoaxDihydrogen monoxide (DHMO) is a scientific name for water that is relatively unknown to most of the public, used in hoaxes that illustrate how the lack of scientific knowledge and an exaggerated analysis can lead to misplaced fears. "Di" meaning two, and "Mono" meaning single, describes how water is made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom.

The hoax involves listing strictly negative effects of water, such as erosion or drowning, attributing them to "dihydrogen monoxide", and then asking individuals to help control the seemingly dangerous substance. The negative aspects, while real, are disguised from their more commonly known forms.

It was apparently created by Eric Lechner, Lars Norpchen and Matthew Kaufman (housemates while attending UC Santa Cruz in 1989), revised by Craig Jackson in 1994, and brought to widespread public attention in 1997, when Nathan Zohner, a 14-year-old student, gathered petitions to ban "DHMO" as the basis of his science project, titled "How Gullible Are We?""
