    JAKEBENSON saidWhat products contain DHMO? Edjewkayte me.

    (suppose to be a list but its under FAQ on the website)
    as an industrial solvent and coolant,
    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 Francisco,
    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 including DICOM routers,
    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.

    Aw kew1, you just broke the serious Republican mood...icon_lol.gif
    Getting back to the job-killing regulation of DHMO:
    http://www.dhmo.org/environment.htmlMeanwhile, federal (EPA) regulations are in place to make illegal the disposal of DHMO in landfills, including those licensed for hazardous waste. Regulations also stipulate that any DHMO appearing in a landfill must be removed. Judging from these laws it appears that the U.S. government recognizes the inherent danger DHMO poses to the environment, at least in certain circumstances.

    The U.S. government refuses to ban the production, distribution, and use of DHMO. This inaction may be due to pressures from private interests and corporate-sponsored economists, among many, who predict a DHMO ban could produce disastrous results. Claims include damage to public health and the well-being of the U.S. and world economies.

    Haha - good luck with that meme. A Republican would say that industry should be critical and protect consumers from this substance on its own that it is Democrats who tend to overregulate everything as a knee jerk reaction.

    On a more serious note, the EPA is trying to do just this on carbon emissions by classifying it as a toxic substance because of the inability of passing a green house gas emissions act.

    Who knows, in 50-100 years DHMO will be regulated and controlled since it will inundate many miles of shoreline, just like now CO2 is making DHMO melt like it has never done before in human history.

    By itself, milk, just like DHMO and CO2, are harmless. It's the amount and where they are in excess that make them so dangerous.

    Heck, CO2 should be doubly more stringently regulated since it's making DHMO so much more prevalent in its liquid phase. It also costs plenty of money when it's in another form:

    I kid you not, I got a call from my compressed gas supplier asking about my controlled substances license.

    I have a lot of different compressed gases in the lab, but the dangerous ones are all in small enough quantities that I don't need a license, and I told them so.

    But no - they were calling about one of the large cylinders. Due to new regulations, highly purified AIR is now a controlled substance. You must have a license from the federal government to possess AIR.

    Are you sure it's just air and not O2 or N2? (I heard of a case where a patient was killed because they mistakenly used N2 for O2.)

    And I thought compressed gas cylinders can explode when near a fire.

    In the 90's a radio talk show host he in Atlanta accused the Atlanta Water Department of allowing DHMO to flow freely into it's reservoir. The Department spokesman vehemently denied this. Gubment employees is so smart.

    Not to hijack the thread or anything, but

    I said air, I meant air.

    And it sounds like you've heard an urban legend. It's not possible to connect a N2 cylinder to an O2 line or to an air line. They come with completely different valves and regulators that cannot be mis-matched.

    However, He and N2 do come with the same valve. One summer when I was working out at the Lazy H Ranch, (Hanford Atomic Works), someone mixed in a few He cylinders in a truckload of N2 cylinders that went to the supply lines for the people who worked in moon suits. (For some reason, they mix N2 and O2 instead of using compressed air. Makes things more complicated, uses more tax dollars.) All summer, people would be working and randomly start talking in Donald Duck speak. Of course, it was a golden ticket. All those union guys immediately shut down whatever job they were on, went to the hospital, and filed a personal injury claim.

    No, real case of 4 patients killed by connecting wrong valve:
    http://www.enquirer.com/editions/2001/01/30/loc_nitrogen_killed_4_at.html XENIA, Ohio — Four nursing home residents who died after a nitrogen tank was hooked up to an oxygen system were killed by nitrogen asphyxiation, two coroners said Monday.

    The residents of Carriage-by-the-Lake nursing home in Bellbrook died after 10 residents at the home were stricken Dec. 7. Authorities said a maintenance worker removed a fitting from an empty oxygen tank and used it as an adapter to connect the nitrogen tank to the nursing home oxygen system.

    Authorities said the nitrogen tank had an oxygen label partially covered by a smaller nitrogen label.

    Greene County Coroner Kevin Sharrett said the victims had significant medical problems before the nitrogen tank was hooked up. He said the nitrogen, which depletes the brain of oxygen, probably caused the patients to drift into a deep state of sleep that would have ultimately resulted in a coma.
