I found out that the 90% furnaces emit DHMO which is a major component of Acid Rain
There are also many other dangers of DHMO. It is used as a solvent, fire suppressant and many other uses. In spite of the many dangers.
See http://www.dhmo.org/facts.html
Your thoughts should it be regulated?¿? :confused:

DHMO (Dihydrogen Monoxide) also known as Hydrogen Hydroxide, Hydroxic Acid (although it's PH is 7 in a pure state)

Wouldn't that depend on what fuel you were burning?

A small amount inhaled can be fatal
It is a major contributer to the oxidation of metals
Causes wood to deform and contributes to wood rot
It also melts a 0*c and boils at 100*c
I guess that the nerds aren't seeing this

The most common name is H2O aka water :D :-D

H2O also divides country's and can be very dangerous in large amounts that are not contained in it's normal habitat.

Hey Guys,

As with everything, the dose makes the poison. Your bodies are ~70% DHMO by weight.

Cheers,
Tom
