DHMO Is Common Beverage Additive
New revelations about Dihydrogen
Monoxide and its use in the beverage industry indicate that nearly all
beverages contain some amount of the potentially dangerous chemical
A current study reveals that far from
being uncommon, Dihydrogen Monoxide is used as an additive by
every major beverage manufacturer in the world. The study found that
Dihydrogen Monoxide was never explicitly named on any beverage label.
DHMO has been found in beer, milk,
baby formula, champagne, wine, distilled spirits, carbonated drinks,
sports drinks, and even in "pure"
DHMO Linked to Winter Traffic Accidents
Dihydrogen monoxide has been detected in "black ice"
on roadways, which has been linked with many fatal and near-fatal
traffic accidents. Caution should be exercised when driving during
winter months, or whenever possibly DHMO-contaminated "black ice" is
Dangerous sheeting of melted and refrozen "black ice"
is facilitated by the presence of DHMO. During warm-cold weather cycles,
additional care should be taken when driving, walking or jogging when
sheeted "black ice" is present.
Crystalline DHMO has been found mixed with winter
precipitation, although this appears to be a regional phenomenon.
The dangers of crystalline DHMO are similar to that of DHMO found in
"black ice", although sensible precautions can eliminate many hazards.
The Dangers of Dihydrogen Monoxide
I felt it was necessary to educate MountainWings readers about
Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO). Proper knowledge is important. DHMO is known
by many other names such as Dihydrogen Oxide, Hydrogen Hydroxide,
Hydronium Hydroxide, or simply Hydric acid.
Although DHMO has many inherent
dangers and kills thousands each year, it can be highly beneficial in
moderated amounts for detoxification purposes. It is discussed in detail
in my book, Quick Fasting. To read the chapter devoted to the alleged
health benefits of DHMO click here:
You have at least 20 products in your home right now with large or trace
amounts of DHMO. You need to be aware of this lurkingchemical. Please
pass this vital information along to all who need to know.
Q: Should I be concerned about
Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO)?
A: 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.
Research conducted by award-winning
U.S. scientist Nathan Zohner concluded that roughly 86 percent of the
population supports a ban on dihydrogen monoxide. Although his results
are preliminary, Zohner believes people need to pay closer attention to
the information presented to them regarding Dihydrogen Monoxide. He adds
that if more people knew the truth about DHMO then studies like the one
he conducted would not be necessary.
A similar study conducted by U.S.
researchers Patrick K. McCluskey and Matthew Kulick also found that
nearly 90 percent of the citizens participating in their study were
willing to sign a petition to support an outright ban on the use of
Dihydrogen Monoxide in the United States.
Q: Why haven't I heard about
Dihydrogen Monoxide before?
A: Good question. Historically, the
dangers of DHMO, for the most part, have been considered minor and
manageable. While the more significant dangers of Dihydrogen Monoxide
are currently addressed by a number of agencies including FDA, FEMA and
CDC, public awareness of the real and daily dangers of Dihydrogen
Monoxide is lower than some think it should be.
Q: What are some of the dangers
associated with DHMO?
A: Each year, Dihydrogen Monoxide is a
known causative component in many thousands of deaths and is a major
contributor to millions upon millions of dollars in damage to property
and the environment. Some of the known perils of Dihydrogen Monoxide
* Death due to accidental inhalation
of DHMO, even in small quantities.
* Prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.
* Excessive ingestion produces a number of unpleasant though not
typically life- threatening side-effects.
* DHMO is a major component of acid rain.
* Gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns.
* Contributes to soil erosion.
* Leads to corrosion and oxidation of many metals.
* Contamination of electrical systems often causes short-circuits.
* Exposure decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes.
* Found in biopsies of pre-cancerous tumors and lesions.
* Given to vicious dogs involved in recent deadly attacks.
* Often associated with killer cyclones in the U.S. Midwest and
elsewhere, and in hurricanes including deadly storms in Florida, New
Orleans and other areas of the southeastern U.S.
* Thermal variations in DHMO are a suspected contributor to the El Nino
Q: What are some uses of Dihydrogen
A: Despite the known dangers of DHMO,
it continues to be used daily by industry, government, and even in
private homes across the U.S. and worldwide. Some of the well-known uses
of Dihydrogen Monoxide are:
* as an industrial solvent and
* in nuclear power plants,
* by the U.S. Navy in the propulsion systems of some older vessels,
* by elite athletes to improve performance,
* in the production of Styrofoam,
* in biological and chemical weapons manufacture,
* in the development of genetically engineering crops and animals,
* as a spray-on fire suppressant and retardant,
* in so-called "family planning" or "reproductive health" clinics,
* as a major ingredient in many home-brewed bombs,
* as a byproduct of hydrocarbon combustion in furnaces and air
conditioning compressor operation,
* in cult rituals,
* by the Church of Scientology on their members and their members'
families (although surprisingly, many members recently have contacted
DHMO.org to vehemently deny such use),
* by both the KKK and the NAACP during rallies and marches,
* by members of Congress who are under investigation for financial
corruption and inappropriate IM behavior,
* by the clientele at a number of bath houses in New York City and San
* historically, in Hitler's death camps in Nazi Germany, and in prisons
in Turkey, Serbia, Croatia, Libya, Iraq and Iran,
* in World War II prison camps in Japan, and in prisons in China, for
various forms of torture,
* during many recent religious and ethnic wars in the Middle East,
* by many terrorist organizations including al Quaeda,
* in community swimming pools to maintain chemical balance,
* in day care centers, purportedly for sanitary purposes,
* by software engineers, including those producing DICOM programmer APIs
and other DICOM software tools,
* by popular computer science professors,
* by the semi-divine King Bhumibol of Thailand and his many devoted
young working girls in Bangkok,
* by the British Chiropractic Association and the purveyors of the bogus
treatments that the BCA promotes,
* by commodities giant Trafigura in their well-publicized and
widely-known toxic-waste dumping activities in Ivory Coast,
* in animal research laboratories, and
* in pesticide production and distribution.
What you may find surprising are some
of the products and places where DHMO is used, but which for one reason
or another, are not normally made part of public presentations on the
dangers to the lives of our family members and friends. Among these
startling uses are:
* as an additive to food products,
including jarred baby food and baby formula, and even in many soups,
carbonated beverages and supposedly "all-natural" fruit juices
* in cough medicines and other liquid pharmaceuticals,
* in spray-on oven cleaners,
* in shampoos, shaving creams, deodorants and numerous other bathroom
* in bathtub bubble products marketed to children,
* as a preservative in grocery store fresh produce sections,
* in the production of beer by all the major beer distributors,
* in the coffee available at major coffee houses in the US and abroad,
* in Formula One race cars, although its use is regulated by the Formula
One Racing Commission, and
* as a target of ongoing NASA planetary and stellar research.
One of the most surprising facts
recently revealed about Dihydrogen Monoxide contamination is in its use
as a food and produce "decontaminant." Studies have shown that even
after careful washing, food and produce that has been contaminated by
DHMO remains tainted by DHMO.
Q: What is the link between Dihydrogen
Monoxide and school violence?
A: A recent stunning revelation is that in every single instance of
violence in our country's schools, including infamous shootings in high
schools in Denver and Arkansas, Dihydrogen Monoxide was involved. In
fact, DHMO is often very available to students of all ages within the
assumed safe confines of school buildings. None of the school
administrators with which we spoke could say for certain how much of the
substance is in use within their very hallways.
Q: How does Dihydrogen Monoxide
toxicity affect kidney dialysis patients?
A: Unfortunately, DHMO overdose is not
unheard of in patients undergoing dialysis treatments for kidney
failure. Dihydrogen Monoxide overdose in these patients can result in
congestive heart failure, pulmonary edema and hypertension. In spite of
the danger of accidental overdose and the inherent toxicity of DHMO in
large quantities for this group, there is a portion of the dialysis
treated population that continues to use DHMO on a regular basis.
Q: Are there groups that oppose a ban on Dihydrogen Monoxide?
A: In spite of overwhelming evidence,
there is one group in California that opposes a ban on Dihydrogen
Monoxide. The Friends of Hydrogen Hydroxide is a group that believes
that the dangers of DHMO have been exaggerated. Members claim that
Dihydrogen Monoxide, or the less emotionally charged and more chemically
accurate term they advocate for it, "Hydrogen Hydroxide," is beneficial,
environmentally safe, benign and naturally occurring. They argue that
efforts to ban DHMO are misguided.
Friends of Hydrogen Hydroxide is
supported by the Scorched Earth Party, a radical and loosely-organized
California-based group. Sources close to the Scorched Earth Party deny
any outside funding from government, industry or pro-industry PACs.
