is a chemical exposure that
is very common from WWII days to the present ... for both the military
and the public: ethylene glycol monobutyl ether or 2-butoxyethanol. I
suspect it is the root cause of President FDR's death and the cause of
Hitler's and the Pope's Parkinson's. It should be suspect for the
cause of CFS or CFIDS.
Bomb fumes in the eyes of WWII soldiers could cause this, and
subsequent birth defects of brain tumors, leukemia, Type 2 diabetes,
autoimmune metabolic problems, NHL which are dramatically increasing
these past decades ... including infertility; sperm counts are on the
decline during that same time period.
For those with DIRECT exposure (not
birth defect effects) ... To find the harm of 2-butoxyethanol - you
have to prove the fatigue of CFS, CFIDS (Doctors say they don't know
what the fatigue is):
- Autoimmune hemolytic anemia
Thankfully, everyone doesn't come down
with everything this chemical can do. The biggest clue to its harm is
blood in urine. Next clue is red blood cells that are small-sized
(immature?) You need to know that, because liver and white blood cell
tests don't read right if red blood cells are predominately immature.
I learned about this chemical as it was stated as the chemical of harm
for the Exxon Valdez oil spill cleanup workers ... however, these
workers' health look 'just like' that of the soldiers with gulf war
syndrome ... and more like what happened to the Vietnam vet (than
dioxin would). We would do well to notice the similarities in how they
became ill - not the differences.
Everyone is at risk regardless of their
age: especially housewives who clean & painters.
Tried? Grouchy, etc? Pets
can be harmed, too
this info with your doctor - Clues to 2-BE harm:
EPA has delisted this chemical -
Congress should ban
your Senators and US Representative
The People are more
powerful than even the President!
the pattern of EGBE harm there?
