When I see the obituaries of the Anchorage Daily News, I
wonder whether a man in his 30s-60s just died of the leukemia or
whether he might also have hemolytic anemia in addition? You see,
those who worked on the Exxon Valdez Oil spill cleanup ... and didn't
think they had any contact with the experimental Exxon owned Inipol
EAP 22 and Exxon's Corexit... actually may have.
The chemicals were strong & seemed to leak ... putting heavy equipment
operators, skimmers, etc at risk too.
The chemicals' most damaging
component is 2-butoxyethanol.
It causes damage to central nervous system; it defats the skin; and it
causes damaged red blood cells:
if other maladies show up, it is in addition to these, not instead
EPA made a
mistake to approve these products;
and because they have been approved
for use then, they are still in use,
the mammals of our oceans,
and our most valuable resource...
