    Scientists have revealed their anger over the general use of dihydrogen monoxide, a potentially dangerous chemical which is comminly used in most food dyes. This chemical is foudn in some cancers, is found in acid rain and is deadly if inhaled.

    Here is a site devoted to the subject.

    I think it's been blown a bit out of proportion but you should get the meaning

    from reading the title dihydrogen monoxide it means two hydrogen and one oxygen so how is that different to h20?

    and I think superheated water vapour would be very dangerous to inhale. (or even liquid water)
