No magic pill

H2O: Dangerous Chemical!

A student at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science Fair, April 26. He was attempting to show how conditioned we have become to alarmists practicing junk science and spreading fear of everything in our environment. In his project he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide."
And for plenty of good reasons, since:

• it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting
• it is a major component in acid rain
• it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state
• accidental inhalation can kill you
• it contributes to erosion
• it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes
• it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients

He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical.
Forty-three (43) said yes,
six (6) were undecided,
and only one (1) knew that the chemical was water.

The title of his prize winning project was, "How Gullible Are We?"
He feels the conclusion is obvious.

His project illustrates a good point about a lot of things. This is a SD site so let's talk SD. How many SD instructors claim they are the greatest, their never fail technique will save your life, come and take my magic pill and you will be Wonder Woman.
Let's do the research and let's not be afraid to ask the right questions and put the system to a test BEFORE we rely on it to save our lives. Don’t be afraid to call H2O, water

There is NO magic pill out there!!!!
