That sounds a bit FUDish--lots of electricity is generated using water
(most of it is, actually, given that steam is part of the cycle even in
most nukes).

And we have used water-cooled CPU's for a lot of years.

(And as a point of interest, distilled water at neutral ph is a
reasonably good insulator, if I recall correctly.)
