Have we talked about the common dangerous chemical. Dihydrogen Monoxide?

As a generally skeptical person, just the phrase "generally recognized as safe" is ominous enough...
But then, it's also generally something you'd reasonably be exposed to all the time. Like salt.

Most of the health warnings in these are at least a little moot, since you aren't eating shampoo. Other than that...did you really need an MSDS to tell you that shampoo is an eye irritant?
Just as a general note. MSDS's tend to be overstated and are written from the perspective of being exposed to the pure chemical rather than a solution, which is clearly not the same thing. Just because a chemical has a long or jargonistic name, doesn't mean it's going to kill you, or even hurt you. Don't buy in to silly phobias.
