Dihydrogen monoxide is a chemical that poses deadly danger to us all if we don't eliminate it. Many people die of inhalation every year, yet the FDA allows it in all food and drink. In gaseous form, it's subtle, without color, taste, or smell, but it's part of acid rain, and it's a greenhouse gas as well. It's widely used by a variety of industries as a solvent, and regulations allow for the dumping of this chemical on the ground or in any river. You'll find dihydrogen monoxide everywhere you go - in oceans, rivers, lakes, and streams, air, soil and snow.
