Military could be being harmed by Corexit
I noticed that the symptoms for Gulf War Syndrome were the same as 2-butoxyethanol poisoning, because I have been learning about what the chemicals were that harmed the workers of the Exxon Valdez oil Spill cleanup.
In talking with another worker 8-4, it became clear that she was harmed by the chemicals that were spilled on her FOSS housing unit with less than one day's exposure her lungs were filling up with fluid. http://www.valdezlink.com/valdez_grandma.htm
If today's military have this, it may be pulmonary edema caused from chemical poisoning - trace ethylene oxide in COREXIT? -not just a pneumonia they are coming down with.
The following MSDS implies that Exxon got the military to buy the 'unsuccessful' Corexit - experimental in 1989
- which has 38% 2-butoxyethanol http://www.valdezlink.com/inipol/media/icsc0059.pdf
with trace ethylene oxide http://www.state.nj.us/health/eoh/rtkweb/0882.pdf
Note disclaimer at bottom says this MSDS on Corexit 9527
was formulated for use by the Dept of Defense
Does anyone know what it is used for?

Do you know any workers of the Exxon Valdez oil spill cleanup?
www.valdezlink.com/home.htm They need help; they can prove the harm done to them,
if they get an accurate medical diagnosis www.valdezlink.com/no_fear.htm
& stop the harm to future workers www.valdezlink.com/future.htm
For your consideration: Many cleaning compounds contain too much 2-butoxyethanol
Please use eye goggles when you clean; wear protective gloves
