First round is acceptance.


I accept your debate. Let's begin!
Debate Round No. 1


I contend that Hydroxyl acid should not be banned for the simple fact that it is WATER.......


But you see, it is very dangerous.

If we didn't have DHMO (also known as dihydrogen monoxide or hydroxyl acid) floating about, air-breathing humans wouldn't drown! Neither would we get frozen when DHMO drops way below 0"C! Not to mention it can burn your skin off when heated to high temperatures! It's a hidden and very subtle toxin that can kill...
In addition liquid DHMO is a near-perfect solution that can be used as a solvent for a range of other dangerous chemicals and substances enhancing their effects. This is especially true for purified or distilled liquid DHMO, which when ingested can raise body acidity and leads to a greater risk of getting a range of degenerative diseases.[1]
It's a dangerous, dangerous chemical.

Therefore it should be banned.

Debate Round No. 2


It shouldn't be banned because it's required for life.


DHMO should be banned but there's nothing wrong with ingestion of hydroxyl ions and protons in an edible solvent.

Thank you for the debate!

Reasons for voting decision: Pro pointed out hydroxyl acid is dangerous But Failed to give a reasonable alternative to support life. Him pointing out that it's reasonable to ingest hydroxyl ions in the last round is misleading, because it's insinuated as a reasonable alternative for ingestion of hydroxyl acid, and con wasn't given an opportunity to refute it.
