Dihydrogen monoxide: also called "hydroxyl acid",
The substance is the major component of acid rain.
Contributes to soil erosion
Contributes to the "greenhouse effect".
Its gaseous form may cause severe burns.
Inhalation, even in small quantities, may cause death.
Prolonged contact with results in severe tissue damage
Excessive ingestion may cause various unpleasant effects
Accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals.
May cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
Has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.
Withdrawal by those addicted to the substance causes certain death within 168 hours

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.
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.

Nevertheless, governments and corporations continue using it widely, heedless of its grave dangers.
