Dihydrogen monoxide (dhmo) is a colorless and odorless chemical compound, also referred to by some as dihydrogen oxide, hydrogen hydroxide, hydronium hydroxide, or simply hydric acid. Its basis is the highly reactive hydroxyl radical, a species shown to mutate dna, denature proteins, disrupt cell membranes, and chemically alter critical neurotransmitters. The atomic components of dhmo are found in a number of caustic, explosive and poisonous compounds such as sulfuric acid, nitroglycerine and ethyl alcohol. 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. 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 are:
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 weather effect.
