|"THE ANEMIA of glycol ether is supported by research" John
Peterson, Nov, 2009
"If I sound cautious, it's because I am,"
said Alaska Commissioner of Environmental
Conservation Dennis Kelso. "Any chemical
treatment . . . carries risks. Just as we would
not continue hosing down a beach until
everything was clean, but dead, neither would we
trade clean rocks for poisoned water."
Chemicals tested in the past have a hard time
passing that test.
Canadian researcher Peter Wells in 1984
concluded that part of the problem with oil
dispersants is that their toxicity appears to be
linked to their effectiveness: Effective
dispersants are too toxic, and nontoxic
dispersants are ineffective.
"Newer dispersants like Corexit 9527 (another Exxon formulation)
are much less toxic than the dispersants used in the 1960s," Wells
said, "but even these new dispersants have adverse effects on

And now we have no idea?
At first, I
looked for similarities between the cleanup of the
Exxon Valdez oil spill and the cleanup of the oil at
the end of the Gulf War 90-91
August, 2003 I noticed that
was being 'sold' to the Dept of Defense. "Oh, no!"
"Our worst experimental chemical of the Exxon Valdez
oil spill cleanup - 38% 2-butoxyethanol and trace
ethylene oxide, too?" Maybe it's in jet fuel?
Now, to my surprise recently, the other name for the
same chemical is ethylene glycol monobutyl ether.
And the reason the gulf war vets are now being said
to be no more harmed than the general population
... in my opinion ... is two fold:
population is pandemically affected by this
group is getting a fully accurate diagnosis
So multiple health studies are 'skewed' because the
secondary effects are being studied, and
2-butoxyethanol poisoning, the 'stealth killer' is
getting away with being the real harm ... all types
of endocrine disruption, central nervous system
damage, kidney damage, liver damage, skin damage;
much more including damage to male testes

RE: Federal Guidelines Related to Glycol Ether Exposures
Thank you for these additional comments about glycol ethers. For
information about federal policies and guidelines related to glycol
ether exposures, I would suggest that you contact the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency. Their Office of Air and Radiation
Technology Transfer Network would probably be the best point of
contact. Their Policy and Guidance website is located at http://www.epa.gov/ttncaaa1/t3/meta/m29032.html.
The contact person is Dr. Roy L. Smith. His direct number is (919)
541-5362 and his e-mail address is email@example.com. I hope this
information is helpful. Thanks for contacting the National Institute
of Environmental Health Sciences!
