James - Dihydrogen Monoxide is the single leading cause of cancer. It kills several people a day as the chemical itself. Oh my... Thanks for the link James. I remember doing a survey in school to see if people wanted to ban the substance from our school, most agreed to get rid of it, while a few laughed and wouldn't answer.
Chealion, DHMO, in and of itself, does NOT cause cancer. This simply is not the case. But, "a significant amount of evidence seems to suggest that DHMO at least plays a role in the formation of cancer."
Please, do not spread misinformation about DHMO. We don't want to cause a panic!!
Your last statement is correct, Chealion, but DHMO on its own does not cause cancer. At least I hope not. This would be very devastating to many industries in Canada and around the world.
From what I understand, it is present in many cancer causing agents and can be found in many cancerous growths. According to the site's cancer page the causal link between DHMO and cancer "is currently not established." Perhaps you are privy to some research that I have not seen.
Either way, I would not recommend inhaling it as that has been shown to be extremely hazardous to human health!
