Just A little Oxidane

Technorati Tags: ,

A student , In his project  urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical
And for plenty of good reasons, since:
1. it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting
2. it is a major component in acid rain
3. it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state
4. accidental inhalation can kill you
5. it contributes to erosion
6. it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes
7. 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,OXIDANE, was water.
The title of his prize winning project was, "How Gullible Are We?"
He feels the conclusion is obvious.
