who worked on the Exxon Valdez oil spill cleanup *
(chemicals were worse
than the oil) *
in the military who clean guns, artillery or transport chemical cleaners -
especially since 1989 *
and * and *
EFFECTS: HUMAN EXPOSURE ABOVE 200 PPM CAN BE EXPECTED TO
CAUSE NARCOSIS, DAMAGE TO THE KIDNEY AND LIVER AND PRESENT AN ABNORMAL
BLOOD PICTURE SHOWING ERYTHROPENIA, RETICULOCYTOSIS, GRANULOCYTOSIS,
LEUKOCYTOSIS AND WOULD BE LIKELY TO CAUSE FRAGILITY OF ERYTHROCYTES

is the MSDS?

'picture' of 2-butoxyethanol poisoning
is a harmful chemical
Some have had blood in
urine within half a day! Blood damage is IMMEDIATE
then tired... exhausted always?
We're trying to find the

Cold to the Core
- Pale color
- Shortness of breath
- Rapid heart rate *
- Yellow skin color (jaundice)
- Dark urine (indicative of
blood in urine - never dismiss this! Stop exposure immediately!)
blood cells that are small-sized, fragility of membranes,
- Abnormal Peripheral Blood test/s
- Red Blood Cells 'stick' together -
- Enlarged spleen
- Elevated Sedimentation Rate
- COOMB's Test?
- VERY HIGH WHITE BLOOD CELL COUNTS

out of range
- High or Low - Especially the Pituitary
- Maybe pituitary headaches - something related to hormones
ended after puberty
Barb's ended when she entered menopause
Recent exposure shows a spike in body
temperature, spike in blood sugar, spike in blood pressure - over a longer
period of time (further away from acute exposures -
you see subnormal body temp, low blood
sugar, low BP (Autoimmune hypothalamus issues?)
guard up - Keep a continual EYE on your Kidney and Liver Function
Chemical Targets them!
your real eyes, have the ophthalmologist check for holes in the retina
these headaches! They are really something, aren't they? *
they at the back of the head & down the neck? Could this
actually be symptomatic of harm to the pituitary gland, and therefore
endocrine disruption? *
give you a list of clues for these)
chemical (s) tested by EPA as pesticides *
& were tested for Endocrine Disruption *
||Diethylene glycol monobutyl
glycol monobutyl ether
about elevated blood sugar?
it possible to become diabetic purely from head injury? (yes,
type I diabetes, per one person's experience; pituitary or hypothalamus
What about elevated blood pressure?
a chemical caused high blood pressure can medications safely bring it

What are your
answers to some of these questions? *
Another group of
workers 'ran into this chemical' in 1989 & since then more and more
people have come into contact with strong concentrations of it, too!
... even moms!
Now, what about
