According to this Apple document:

About Disk Utility's secure erase options

The DoD (Department of Defense)...actually only requires a 3-pass erase:

"The 7-Pass Erase option conforms to the DoD 5220.22-M specification. This specification calls for three passes, but Disk Utility performs seven."

So a 35 pass erase (in addition to taking an ungodly amount of time to perform)...would way way exceed what the DoD requires!
