It is true KNO3 is one of the ingredients in gunpowder and other
explosives, but it won't explode by itself. Those other ingredients
are necessary, along with an ignition source. Table sugar can be made
to explode, also, as well as a myriad of other compounds.
There is already enough "chemophobia" on this list without
unnecessarily alarming people. Thanks to you, someone out there is
now afraid to try PMDD or even fertilize their garden. Let's stop
this discussion now.
