Is the Military using Corexit
- after it was experimentally 'tried'
during the 1989 Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Cleanup?
I was visiting yesterday with a Valdez
I had talked with her last year about oil spill cleanup stuff
& she and her husband knew people harmed by the chemicals.
Serious diabetes started up after
She didn't even get out to the
beach to pick up after the men spraying the chemicals.
Corexit 9500 (more toxic) is on the Alyeska Pipeline Terminal today,
poised for use on the people and environment AGAIN
8-1-89 version of Corexit
only gives ethylene oxide as the dangerous ingredient
& no others
Acquired hemolytic anemia
& long term effects - complications from solvent exposure
Must test differently than regular hemolytic anemia?
If bone marrow is damaged - don't long term effects set in?
- this must be untrue:

Please note, ingesting is a minor form of exposure to 2-butoxyethanol
Misting in the worst... or inhaling it & getting it on your skin
Probably would not be safely stored at hot temperatures
How to detect the hemolytic anemia when it is acquired from too much 2-butoxyethanol solvent exposure, whether one time period exposure, or multiple exposures over several years (cumulative effects of exposures)
... when the long term effects have set in
It seems to not have the same 'signals' that it is present as 'non acquired' hemolytic anemia has
Iron must be part of what needs to be tested for www.valdezlink.com/iron.htm Since iron is stored in the red blood cells (50%) and in the liver, spleen & other tissues... & is needed to make red blood cells.
women who worked the Exxon Valdez
oil spill cleanup shared recently that their iron counts are 6 and 10;
one has developed rheumatoid arthritis from a weakened immune system
The other was told, "Oh, you don't have leukemia, or you would be dead now"
We have a chiropractic doctor who worked with patients during the Exxon Valdez oil spill cleanup & in 1992 he came down with melanoma eye cancer & had one eye removed; recently his liver cancer had gone undetected with normal testing for liver cancer. They only found it by inserting a camera at the naval area... & then found he was full of cancer in the liver and it had gone to the stomach. And if he is still alive, he would only have days to live.
He could have been exposed second hand, when patients were expelling the chemical thru their respiratory system?
I am asking questions on how to detect the long term effects of the 2-butoxyethanol excessive
(or cumulative excessive) exposures
PS Could you tell me what the troops wash their gear with?
I was told it contained 2-butoxyethanol
The military uses many different cleaning/degreasing agents on its equipment. Each is selected for the particular job that is required and any personal protective equipment for people using these agents is likewise selected based on the properties of the agent being used. I am sorry to be so general about this but the military has literally thousands of types of equipment ranging from small arms to aircraft and navy ships with all of their associated components. Virtually all of them get cleaned at some point and the cleaning agent is selected based on the requirement of the job.
What temperature is recommended for storing & use of cleaning compounds?
What kind of exposures could you have to 2-butoxyethanol type chemicals?
What are the symptoms of too much chemicals in one's system?
Learn to avoid products with 2-butoxyethanol - especially those which contain large amounts of this chemical Some Auto & Cleaning products have very high levels of 2-butoxyethanol
Corexit has 38% 2-butoxyethanol (UNSAFE!) Inipol EAP 22 had 12%
