Oh, after reading this I have a
couple of concerns. I friend of mine works as a school
custodian (lots of exposure to cleaning chemicals) and has a
lot of fatigue and pain around the kidney area.
Also, a dog of mine died prematurely with autoimmune hemolytic
anemia - but what would he have been exposed to at home that
could have caused it? Surely this chemical isn't in dog food?
the exposure for our pets and our babies and anyone in our house
... is this chemical in cleaning products/ paints/ solvents such
as those used by carpenters: EGBE or 2-butoxyethanol
The chemical gets in our eyes, and that is showing up as an
exposure route to be careful of.
cats had a horrible end, and the owners suspected
that it was the chemical in Spot Shot Carpet cleaner. (Since it
was aerosol and had 38% 2-butoxyethanol ...... & the company
even bragged about it being safe) ... I suspect so, too
As to school janitors I have heard from several of them.
Horrible things happen to them. When we see 'flu' going around
at our schools we should first ask what janitors were using to
clean the classrooms, the bathrooms ... & whether or not
floor stripper was used recently .... NOT suspect it is a virus
Dale, a part-time school janitor seems to be strongly affected
this about 2-butoxyethanol
on 2-butoxyethanol I shared with Barbara
Saddest part of it all, is that you can't just go to the doctor
and find out what ails you ... oh, a few points, but usually
people are told that all their tests are normal ... and there is
nothing wrong with them.
For your pet to have a diagnosis of AIHA is better than most
people get. THAT fatigue is the proof that 2-butoxyethanol is
the chemical of harm ... in the CFIDS assortment of symptoms
(Now, how can you ask a dog if they are depressed, have
headaches, short term memory loss and suicidal tendencies;
difficulty concentrating, etc?
