The Immune System
I believe the main issue is that the immune system becomes autoimmune with 2-butoxyethanol or 'friendly fires' A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO IMMUNOLOGY

 

WHY is it that some soldiers didn't get GWI? 

I think it depends upon the job they had.  Those standing behind the missile launcher systems got sprayed with this.  (It is in rocket propulsion - maybe an ingredient in bombs to start with)  One soldier thought there was something like Corexit in the Arms Room .  Seabees would move the chemicals around & I would be especially concerned about moving Corexit (2/3 of Seabees interview of a 17,000 sample had the GWI)  Second hand solvent exposure is a big issue, too 

The literature says the chemical leaves one's system in 24-48 hours.  I do not believe that.  I call it the 'tornado' chemical.  Even if it did leave quickly, it leaves behind a great deal of health damage.  No one should die before their time for serving their country or being a hardworking person at home or for an employer.

Best help in my opinion is the glyconutrient food supplements and good nutrition.

Meds for the chemically poisoned can add to their chemical load and cause other ailments to start up.

This is in reply to some of Kurt's questions

2-buoxyethanol's primary exposure is through the eyes - that could cause 'dry eye' because this chemical causes eyes to burn and hurt and it also dries out things - most especially eyes

MSDS info will say it 'defats the skin'
