We were discussing in another thread how careful one must be when gathering information off the internet, particularly medical info where incorrect facts can be dangerous. This site says it all, and is a very clever exercise that teaches this lesson brilliantly:

11 year-old Son had negative blood panel, but went on gluten-free diet of his own volition to see if his concentration would improve, his temper abate, and his energy level would increase. Miraculous response!

Could you be a bit more specific about what you mean regarding this site. I went there but didn't understand what you were referring to.

Dihydrogen monoxide is H2O. The site is an example of how the presentation of info & misinformation can get people worked up unnecessarily.

Michelle - you beat me to it. I was going to say that my long ago borderline passing grade in high school chemistry made me think it was H2O - water.

Snopes has a page talking about the history of this website and the then 14 year old student who won a science fair with this project, titled "How gulible are we?" Check it out here: http://www.snopes.com/science/dhmo.asp

Isn't it fabulous? My nine-year old son sat wide-eyed, reading through the warnings. His reaction when I told him it was only speaking about water was classic...silence, then a slow smile. Very clever, and worth a second read when taken in the context of what we can get sucked into in this age of information bombardment...even as a forty-year old! :)
