affected our USA troops also affected the coalition
forces; and the interesting thing about Australia, in 1995
they had workers exposed to the oil spill cleanup chemical,
2-butoxyethanol when they were 'advised' it was good. This was Corexit
9527 and the US Dept of defense must have it somewhere, too per MSDS
sheet I noticed. It is 38% 2-butoxyethanol and possibly 'trace' ethylene
oxide. So just as our nation has Gulf War Syndrome affected soldiers
along with Australia; both nations have a group of workers KNOWN to be
affected by 2-butoxyethanol (1989 for us; 1995
for Australia) Wonder what the 'retic'
ratio is on all of these?
There should definitely be a long term study on these groups The animal studies indicate there could be harm to humans, but you know, the mice and rats don't live long enough to say that there are long term effects. Since everything else has been studied, and since 2-butoxyethanol and diethylene glycol monobutyl ether are solvents GW Troops were exposed to - Why not see if the blood looks the same - test for the fatigue
So, maybe there are health similarities between your military service & oil spill cleanup workers in both countries - and this should be looked into!
