Ban Dihydrogen Monoxide
The Invisible Killer Dihydrogen monoxide is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and kills uncounted thousands of people every year. Most of these deaths are caused by accidental inhalation of DHMO, but the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide do not end there.
Prolonged exposure to its solid form causes severe tissue damage. Symptoms of DHMO ingestion can include excessive sweating and urination, and possibly a bloated feeling, nausea, vomiting and body electrolyte imbalance. For those who have become dependent, DHMO withdrawal means certain death.
Dihydrogen monoxide is also known as hydroxl acid, and is the major component of acid rain. It contributes to the "greenhouse effect", may cause severe burns, and contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape.
It accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals, may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes, and has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.
Contamination Is Reaching Epidemic Proportions! Quantities of dihydrogen monoxide have been found in almost every stream, lake, and reservoir in America today. But the pollution is global, and the contaminant has even been found in Antarctic ice. DHMO has caused millions of dollars of property damage in the midwest, and recently California.
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, and 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. Companies dump waste DHMO into rivers and the ocean, and nothing can be done to stop them because this practice is still legal. The impact on wildlife is extreme, and we cannot afford to ignore it any longer! The Horror Must Be Stopped!
We, the undersigned, hereby request that the Canadian federal government pass law to ban the use of Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) in industrial ventures. And that all companies in the process of dumping DHMO into Canada's waterways cease and desist all activities producing excess DHMO.
