We, the undersigned, request that the Environmental Protection Agency adopt regulations prohibiting the manufacture, processing, and distribution in commerce of Dihydrogen monoxide (DHMO), pursuant to TSCA (15 U.S.C. § 2605(a)(2)(A)(i)). Such regulations are needed to safeguard human health. TSCA mandates that the EPA must regulate chemical substances where there is a “reasonable basis to conclude” that such substances “present an unreasonable risk of injury to health and or the environment” (15 U.S.C. § 2605(a)). TSCA authorizes the EPA to prohibit “the manufacturing, processing, or distribution in commerce” of a chemical substance for a particular use or uses (15 U.S.C. § 2605(a)(2)(A)(i)).

Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is a colorless and odorless chemical compound,
also referred to by some as Dihydrogen Oxide, Hydrogen Hydroxide,
Hydronium Hydroxide, or simply Hydric acid.
Its basis is the highly reactive hydroxyl radical, a species shown to mutate
DNA, denature proteins, disrupt cell membranes, and chemically alter critical
neurotransmitters. It kills uncounted
thousands of people every year.
Most of these deaths are caused by accidental
inhalation of DHMO, but the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide
do not end there.
Prolonged exposure to its solid form causes severe tissue damage.
Symptoms of DHMO ingestion can include excessive sweating
and urination, and possibly a bloated feeling, nausea, vomiting
and body electrolyte imbalance.
For those who have become dependent, DHMO withdrawal means certain death.
The atomic components of DHMO are found in a number of caustic, explosive
and poisonous compounds such as Sulfuric Acid, Nitroglycerine and Ethyl
is found in detectable and
biologically significant levels in virtually all cancerous tumors and other cancerous
and pre-cancerous growths. Despite the known dangers of DHMO, it continues to be used daily by industry,
government, and even in private homes across the U.S. and worldwide. For more information, please visit the Dihydrogen Monoxide Research Division website at http://DHMO.org. Together, we CAN stop this!
