* in the 'baby
boomer' group whether technically correct or not. She
was only three years older than me, and I feel that I am
at risk as are most children of parents who served in
WWII & the many types of manufacturing then (for
developing 'late to show up birth defects' of autoimmune
issues ... diabetes ... cancers)
October 11, 2008 there was a TV program on Presidents' health,
also talking about McCain's and Obama's health.
I had wondered what type of cancer his mother had ...
& the program said his grandfather had prostate cancer,
and his mother had died of ovarian and uterine cancer/s.
I found the following in a
Chicago Tribune article on Obama's
March 27, 2007
El Dorado where Barack Obama's grandfather lived
during his growing up years, was predominantly an oil
Stanley A. Dunham married Madelyn Payne in early 1940
When World War II came, Stanley enlisted in the Army.
Madelyn became a Rosie-the-Riveter at Boeing Co.'s B-29
production plant in Wichita. And Stanley Ann Dunham was
born in late November 1942.
I strongly suspect that the exposures to
in manufacturing for his
paternal grandmother prior to his mother's conception
... and similar exposure for his grandfather in WWII
service would be the cause of the prostate cancer and
also the teratogen effects of BUTYL upon their daughter
prior to her conception
Sort of like a 'late to show up birth defect'
It is a chemical such as
BUTYL that is too
many cleaning products,
I recently shared this information
with my US Senator, Lisa Murkowski
Wrong views or no view at all of 2-butoxyethanol
exposures will lead to wrong answers for our epidemic of
autoimmune issues and cancers
A reply to someone who was
TIRED ALL THE TIME - NO ENERGY
Per definition of Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction
Syndrome, doctors do not know what the FATIGUE is
I suspect it is AIHA that 'hides out' THE ANEMIA
that glycol ether exposure would cause.
Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia is
more Common than is Realized
Exposure to Glycol Ethers and Subsequent
Thank you for your comments about
exposure to glycol ethers and subsequent
anemia. The scientific literature seems
to support your concerns. Thanks for
contacting the National Institute of
Environmental Health Sciences!
2-butoxyethanol overexposure LOOKS LIKE the
It has been in widespread use since the 1930s and looks
like CFIDS, CFS, FM for civilians and shows up as
'syndromes' during war eras
Help our Gulf War Vets
Gulf War Vets were exposed to a lot of Solvents &
I think there are many 'baby
boomers' that are my age and younger who are at risk for
late to show up 'birth defects;
and getting more exposure to 2-butoxyethanol is very,
I think Congress should ban
2-butoxyethanol if they want
to help the Nation's Health. Now these glycol
ethers (of which EGBE is the one in use half the time)
should be disclosed in all products, most especially in
our home cleaning products.
They are organic solvents, teratogens, neurotoxins,
poisons & pesticides.
to our VETS & civilians, too
