It appears that most of these are in the glycol ether family:  of which half the time

the glycol ether you would run into would be 2-butoxyethanol

They will cause one's body to turn autoimmune.  MANY things are autoimmune <---link

  I think the primary cause of harm to military most especially in war time, is exposure to glycol ethers.  It causes one's body to turn autoimmune, and there are a myriad of combinations of autoimmune issues that can result.  Therefore I think the only thing needed for presumptive disability approval should be that you have autoimmune issues after flu symptoms when prior you were perfectly healthy.  With glycol ether poisoning you get CFIDS symptoms (CFS, FM for short) and the anemia hides out.  Blood and liver tests look OK, but serious hemolysis is going on:  AIHA or IMHA   *  *    <---links

Why anemia tests and liver tests are 'off' with exposure to glycol ethers:    * <---link

According to Robbins' Pathologic Basis of Disease, 5th Edition (1994), Chapter 13 (Diseases of Red Cells and Bleeding Disorders), page 584:

"With an increased demand for blood cells in the adult, the fatty marrow may become transformed to red, active marrow. Moreover, this is accompanied by increased productive activity throughout the marrow. These adaptive changes are capable of increasing red cell production (erythropoiesis) seven-to-eight-fold. Thus ... such loss of red cells as may occur in hemolytic disorders produces anemia only when the marrow compensatory mechanisms are outstripped."

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!
hemolytic anemia symptoms / short list
  • Chills
  • Fatigue
  • Pale color
  • Shortness of breath
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Yellow skin color (jaundice)
  • Dark urine
  • Enlarged spleen
suspect the anemia of CFIDS, CFS, FM, 'gulf war syndrome' is AIHA or IMHA. <---link

What are the glycol ethers?  *  *

Glycol: any of a class of organic chemicals characterized by having separate two hydroxyl (-OH) groups, contribute to high water solubility, hygroscopicity and reactivity with many organic compounds, on usually linear and aliphatic carbon chain. The general formula is CnH2n(OH)2 or (CH2)n(OH)2.

The most probable cause of death for Corey Haim 'after flu symptoms' would be glycol ether poisoning in which the body becomes autoimmune: acute autoimmune hemolytic anemia causing the red blood cells to die off too soon AND organs to shut down. Similar issue for 3 soldiers who died in 2005 after 'flu symptoms' The question to research, "What was going on differently immediately preceding the flu symptoms?"
