The Silent Killer

Colorless, odorless, and deadly if inhaled, Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is estimated to be present in potentially fatal concentrations in over 3% of American homes. In spite of these shocking facts–and that fact that athletes at all levels have been caught using the substance as a performance enhancer–the federal government remains unwilling to confront the problem. The Crossed Pond urges you to be aware of, and to take proper precautions against, DHMO. For further background, we urge you to check out our friends at The DHMO Research Division.


  1. “One of the most surprising facts recently revealed about Dihydrogen Monoxide contamination is in its use as a food and produce “decontaminant.” Studies have shown that even after careful washing, food and produce that has been contaminated by DHMO remains tainted by DHMO.”

    I think that’s one of my favorite quotes from that article.

  2. I was kind of hoping Jack would chime in on this. I’ve heard secondhand that, for active duty Naval personnel, it’s almost impossible to get away from DHMO–the stuff is literally everywhere.

  3. Yeah, and it was even more toxic since it was mixed with Chloridated Sodium.
