Dihydrogen Monoxide and Cancer
The causative link between Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) and Cancer is currently not established, although a significant amount of evidence seems to suggest that DHMO at least plays a role in the formation of cancer, including:
- Hodgkin's Lymphoma,
- Ewing's Tumor,
- multiple myeloma,
- colorectal cancer,
- basal cell carcinoma,
- squamous cell carcinoma, and
- malignant melanoma.
Detection and Treatment
What is known about these cancers is that Dihydrogen Monoxide is found in detectable and biologically significant levels in virtually all tumors and other cancerous and pre-cancerous growths.
Cancer research has made significant advances in the detection and treatment of many forms of cancers. With each new advancement, the role DHMO plays in the cause of cancer is likely to be better understood.
How Carcinogenic is Dihydrogen Monoxide?
Dihydrogen Monoxide is not believed to be carcinogenic, although it is known to be a component of a number of cancer-causing agents. Additionally, the cause of approximately 20 percent of all cancers is not known, and there is reason to suspect that DHMO may play some role in these as well. Clearly, more research is needed before DHMO's role is fully enumerated.

Medical imaging and hospital information systems are frequently an important tool in diagnosing and tracking cancer patterns in the population, and DHMO.org supports efforts to produce software technology, such as DICOM medical imaging software systems, DICOM data migration tools and DICOM programmer SDKs to make that happen. We offer free DHMO testing to software professionals who are working to find a cure for cancer through DICOM development.
