Stop The Silent Killer

Came across this letter from the Stop the Silent Killer Foundation. Please take immediate action on this important issue. Children are dying!

"Dear Mr. xxxxxx: You have been identified as a person who cares deeply about the future of our fragile planet, the health of our children and the quality of our nation’s leadership. If we are right, we need your help, and we need it immediately. As you have undoubtedly read, dihydrogen oxide has been found to be a major threat to the environment and to human and animal health. Here are the facts:

In 2003, the most recent year for which statistics are available, 4,100 Americans— many of them under the age of 10— died from excessive dosages of dihydrogen oxide commonly found in many homes and recreation sites. Our polluted lakes, rivers and oceans are known to contain vast quantities of dihydrogen oxide. On this, there is no controversy! Contaminated ground water? Same tragic situation. In California, Missouri and Georgia families have lost their homes to dihydrogen oxide contamination. In some applications, dihydrogen oxide is a major contributor to injuries from falls. In other applications dihydrogen oxide is a major cause of burns.

Why does America endure this wasteful destruction of our planet, our children and ourselves? Greed. Simple greed and stupidity. We need your help now. In the next 24 hours, we need you to demand an end to the production and use of dihydrogen oxide. Please write: The Dihydrogen Oxide Institute, P.O. Box 7178, Washington, D.C. 20044-7178. On behalf of our future generations, I thank you. Sincerely, John Alan Waterman."
