What is the key to finding out what happens
to the blood of those who are overexposed to 2-butoxyethanol?
blood characteristics checked in sea otters of the Exxon Valdez oil
spill cleanup were levels of
haptoglobins, a constituent of blood. Haptoglobin levels are a basic measure of the status of the immune system in mammals. It is thought that exposure to oil can compromise the immune system, making the animal less resistant to disease.
Other blood characteristics measured from blood are the types of enzymes associated with how the blood functions as a vehicle for the immune system, and to carry oxygen."

Any thoughts here?
