cause of death may not be an infection

I just heard of Alexander Haig's death on the TV news 2-20-2010.  When they mentioned 'infection' it might mean that there were very high white blood cell counts showing up.


Since this can be (& would generally be) interpreted by doctors to mean there is an infection somewhere in the body, even if you don't know where exactly. To me it is a side effect of an anemia doctors say they can't find: the anemia of CFIDS, CFS, FM that exposure to glycol ether would cause.  Lots of opportunity for exposure to this poison, solvent, pesticide, neurotoxin, teratogen ... most especially in the military.


People look OK, but then die and many times it is not known what the cause of death is


I suspect someday the same will be said of Senator Robert Byrd; Assoc. Justice Ruth Ginsburg


As he neared death, did Alexander Haig have 'the chills?' ... Shortness of breath? ... rapid heartbeat?


Suspect, then, that it was the advanced idiopathic anemia that took his life. together with other, multiple autoimmune issues that would likely be there as well. (AND/OR)  If the anemia was primary, however, it would not have been given much thought to, not even at death or anywhere 'along the way.'


Or - Organs can Shut down & be the cause of death


Glycol Ether Exposure 'looks like' the flu

Some Examples of Autoimmune Processes *  *  *

"Examples of autoimmune disorders or diseases with an autoimmune component are: 

Crohn's, Lupus, Diabetes, Endometriosis, Psoriasis, Ulcerative colitis, Myxodema, 

Multiple Sclerosis

* Parkinson's, Scleroderma, Fibromyalgia, Hashimotos, Grave's, Allergies."

Too much exposure to 2-butoxyethanol (a glycol ether) can 'look like' the FLU  *, and can cause acute autoimmune hemolytic anemia * with acute liver and kidney failure  *


Autoimmune hemolytic anemia. Occurs when the body produces antibodies that coat red blood cells.

In autoimmune hemolytic anemia, the body produces autoantibodies to red blood cell membrane proteins. (size? shape RBCs?)  The FATIGUE???    Help?   Diagnosis help  The basics
Immune System Activated Coagulopathy Thickening of the blood caused by Immune System
Cold Agglutinin Cold agglutinin disease is an acquired autoimmune hemolytic anemia due to an IgM autoantibody usually directed against the I antigen on red blood cells.
Porphyria is a metabolic problem that is thought to be hereditary; however, it could be chemically induced.  Difficulty in making heme, which is the primary component of hemoglobin in red blood cells. Their lab tests reveal abnormal activity in one or more of the eight enzymes involved in heme production. Since most heme is made in the bone marrow, these "disorders of porphyrin metabolism" are usually found there or in the liver.
Pernicious anemia Pernicious anemia can be caused when autoantibodies are formed against intrinsic factor which is needed for vitamin B12 absorption.
extramedullary hematopoiesis red blood cell production outside the vertebrae. Red blood cells are derived from the stem cells in the bone marrow throughout the body. When individuals become severely anemic, there is not enough space in the ctive bone marrow to produce hemoglobin, and the body begins to make blood outside the bone marrow: in the spleen, liver, and sometimes outside the vertebrae, which can compress the spinal cord, leading to paralysis

So does this mean abnormal peripheral blood tests - and not showing up with blood in urine as previous?

Would this be an advance stage of autoimmune hemolytic anemia?

Fibromyalgia, CFS, CFIDS "There is increasing recognition that FM and CFS may be autoimmune in nature." Dr. David Moskowitz ("symptoms of CFS and FM most resemble the flu")

What 2-butoxyethanol should be suspect for causing

Polymyalgia Rheumatica may include: Moderate to severe aching and stiffness in the muscles in your hips, thighs, shoulders, upper arms and neck ... *  *
FLU    1347   1918  Just Because   No flu shot! *  * 2-butoxyethanol or similar chemicals cause autoimmune metabolic issues - Flu-like symptoms
HELLP Syndrome Only shows up in the group of pregnant woman or just after child birth.  Also Memory Loss Memory Loss
Meningitis It may be caused by an autoimmune reaction,
in which the body attacks its own tissues.

Guillain-Barré syndrome:  an autoimmune disease that damages sensory and motor nerves,"  Dr. Armond Goldman, an emeritus professor in the Department of Pediatrics at UTMB The paralysis which struck Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) in 1921 was not caused by poliomyelitis, as has been universally assumed by physicians and historians, according to researchers from the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB). They believe that the most likely cause of FDR's paralysis was Guillain-Barré syndrome. 

What did Pres FDR die of?  


Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy  cidp  *

CIDP is closely related to Guillain-Barre syndrome and it is considered the chronic counterpart of that acute disease.

 My friend, Helen took Procrit  * ... and also what doctors prescribed for elevated blood sugar & Blood Pressure.  She lost weight & was a success per following her doctors 'orders'  She died anyway & the rapid heart beat they thought was part of a heart attack, was more than likely a sign of AIHA or IMHA that 2-BE would cause.  I suspect she was harmed by the 2-BE in the cleaning products she used.  And that rapid heart beat was a sign of the anemia. 


 Norma's death was blamed on pancreatic cancer - But more probably it was the anemia doctors are in some ways aware of, but often not fully diagnosed:  rapid heart beat, gasping for breath, ''the chills'  in the last hours of life ... and signs for years before, also

Protect Yourself From Future Harm

Check for what products contain 2-butoxyethanol
(CAS Registry Number: 000111-76-2)
in the Household Products Data Base


or check on the internet.

Also check for the complex version Diethylene glycol monobutyl ether or 2-2-butoxyethanol (CAS Registry Number: 000112-34-5) 5% concentration is not safe for home use, per one expert in product development.

If you want to know about a specific product you use, put the name of the product, comma, and then the letters MSDS (Stands for Material Safety Data Sheet) and the internet should be able to give enough choices that you can see if this chemical is in the product you are using.

People do not take the warnings seriously, but they should. Wear goggles and chemical retardant gloves and have ventilation equivalent to outdoors.

On the other hand, most of the time the ingredient is NOT disclosed and you have to know what type of warnings might indicate such. Something really needs to change here. A clean bathtub is not worth someone's life. The price we are paying is NOT worth the benefit received. It is an unnecessary harm.
