Why does the USA think 2-Butoxy Ethanol is NOT Harmful?  *

 

2-Butoxy Ethanol is unquestionably Health Hazardous

Reason the New Jersey Hazardous Substance Fact Sheet cited 2-butoxy Ethanol

is

2-Butoxy Ethanol is on the Right to Know Hazardous Substance List because it is cited by

  • OSHA,
  • OCGIH,
  • DOT,
  • NIOSH,
  • IRIS and
  • NFPA

THIS CHEMICAL IS ON THE SPECIAL HEALTH HAZARD SUBSTANCE LIST

  • CAS Number: 111-76-2
    RTJ Substance Number: 0275
    DOT Number: UN 2369


    Now elevated (2001 revised Aug 2008) to Health Hazard Rating 3 (NFPA)

    2-butoxy Ethanol can affect you by ingestion and may be absorbed through the skin
    2-butoxyethanol should be handled as a CARCINOGEN - WITH EXTREME CAUTION
    (Contact can irritate the skin and eyes with possible eye damage)
    Inhaling 2-butoxy Ethanol can irritate the nose and throat
    2-butoxy Ethanol can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain.
    Exposure can cause headache, dizziness, lightheadedness, & passing out.
    2-Butoxy Ethanol may damage the liver & kidneys.

Cancer Hazard
2-Butoxy Ethanol may be a CARCINOGEN IN HUMANS SINCE IT HAS BEEN SHOWN TO CAUSE LIVER CANCER IN ANIMALS.
Many scientists believe there is no safe level of exposure to a carcinogen.


Reproductive Hazard
2-butoxy Ethanol may damage the developing fetus.
There is limited evidence that 2-Butoxy Ethanol may damage the male reproductive system (including decreasing the sperm count) in animals and may affect female fertility in animals


Other Effects
2-Butoxy Ethanol may damage the liver and kidneys.

(Find the Anemia that BUTYL causes)

It is easy to be exposed to this BUTYL    ...   The worst pesticide

Senator Lisa Murkowski had taken an interest in these issues  *

What ER doctors need to know

'Help our Gulf War Vets' *

* Gulf War Vets' Loss of Child *

Gulf war vets' kids?  *   

2-butoxyethanol is clearly an exposure for gulf war vets

      Flu - NOT Virus     Pandemic Flu      CFIDS after flu *

FLU *    Diabetes  *      DDD *    Autism  *  

label all areas where 2-butoxyethanol compounds are stored... with POISON cautions

A primary cancer causing - autoimmune causing chemical exposure

A teratogen, a solvent, a neurotoxin, a pesticide, a poison

I stumbled onto the FATIGUE - Headaches of CFIDS  *

Meds can harm us more than help us if they have BUTYL in them Ibuprofen

Just because I back up info with a copy on my site does not mean I originate the research *

I would like military to look for exposure to 2-butoxyethanol or glycol butyl ethers when soldiers come down with 'the flu' as these 3 soldiers did before they died thereafter, 2005 *  Suspect exposure to this chemical IMMEDIATELY preceding flu symptoms. Suspect cause of death was acute autoimmune hemolytic anemia with kidney and liver failures .... that high white blood cell counts was an anemia sign - Not an infection
 

I would like to see exposure to 2-butoxyethanol on the list of presumptive disability approval for ALL VETS


 

What was different just before the 'flu' symptoms started?

You will find the butyl exposure

Sneezing ... The Sniffles ... Congestion ... may be clues to Exposure to BUTYL

Do gulf war vets & Vietnam Vets have an anemia doctors do not find? *

this chemical's pattern

Blood Damage ... Anemia  ... Autoimmune Issues *   ....  & Cancers, too  *

What I Suspect for the Cause of Autism
