You should also get the book CHEMICAL EXPOSURES: Low levels and high stakes second edition by Nicholas Ashford and Claudia Miller. Published by John Wiley & Sons, 1998.
It will put a lot of this into perspective for you.
Rea's historic role and the role of the medical community to bash/ignore chemical exposure problems,
the government's role in covering this up (Gulf War, etc.)
|Others will say that a fat biopsy is the best source of determining chemicals in one's system as they are stored in the fatty tissues of the body. However, if a blood sample will work, should be less involved for you. Input?|
These are laboratories which can help the chemically sensitive and his/her doctor.

This lab can test for specific chemicals in blood and urine, etc.
This lab is renown for its accuracy.
Ask your doctor:
" What is the test to determine if a low red blood cell anemia is
immune or non-immune hemolytic anemia * caused from solvents:
2-butoxyethanol. C6H14O2/CH3(CH2)2CH2OCH2CH2OH ?"
A very prominent, knowledgeable physician for one bioremediation worker was unable to determine the source of his low red blood cell anemia in 2002; however, at the time, he wasn't given the extra information about his patient's overexposure to inipol EAP 22, nor the hazard sheet for 2-butoxyethanol...its poisonous ingredient.
Keep in mind, children of someone who has been chemically over-exposed are now more at risk for chemical overload, than had their parent not been chemically poisoned.
Learn a family lifestyle of 'avoiding chemicals.' *
MSDS Note: Inipol EAP 22 contains 2-Butoxyethanol which may cause red blood cell damage based on animal data: hemolysis
Says a doctor specializing in blood:
the blood for the type of hemolytic anemia with a blood specialist!
"If you want your anemia to be evaluated by Hematologists:
you should make an appointment with a Hematology Clinic "
Dr. Ben Carson, brain surgeon in the Wash DC area,
wants to help find a cure for cancer.
"What we eat, how we treat our bodies, what we do to strengthen or to weaken our immune systems. We need to pay a lot more attention to preventive medicine--not so much to radiating, poisoning and cutting."
"I have changed my diet significantly, since I recovered from prostate cancer:
Organic fruits and vegetables. Much less in the way of processed foods. Snack foods are pretty much out. I don't drink soda anymore." Other Resources
One person interested in the EVOS worker cause comments:
"You recommend several naturopathic doctors. I am always leary of naturopathic medicine because there is so much fakery going on. We see that in this area in cancer cure treatments across the border in Mexico. Naturopathic medicine seems like the little girl with a curl, when she is good, she is very good, and when she is bad, she is very bad.
I couldn't help but think of "chelation" treatments reading your web page. If you don't know, chelation is done to remove foreign chemicals from the blood. It was first used after WW I to treat soldiers exposed to mustard gas. It was very popular in Anchorage around 1990" - such as for mercury in the system from teeth fillings.
