Sudden Infant Death
I suppose any time you see the term
... "syndrome' it means that the
doctors recognize what your are
talking about exists, but they don't
know what causes it.
If people only realized that the
harm of 2-buotyxethanol affects
THEM. It is so pervasive in our
country; it has been so for so long;
that almost every one knows someone
and most likely would even have
close family members affected by it.
In listening to the stories of the
gulf war vets; their children born
before they were deployed (&
spouses) in some cases came down
with the 'gulf war syndrome' too.
I've learned that second hand
exposure is not that hard to come
into; along with possibly being born
with a little exposure from our
parents ... and getting our own in

"I am JDC4058. I served in the storm
bravely and honorably just like the
majority of you out there. I have
something tearing my heart out and I
would like to know if there is
anyone out there who has suffered
the same thing as I have.
In November of 1992 my wife gave
birth to by all appearances a
healthy baby girl. 15 days later my
baby girl was dead from an unknown
illness. All of her organs began
shutting down all of a sudden and
there was just nothing that could be
done to save her. Her liver was the
first organ to fail.
After that all of her other organs
just shut down one by one. After her
funeral I hired a medical
malpractice lawyer to find out just
what she died of as the resident
pathologist in the hospital in which
she died could not give me a
definitive cause for her death. Her
death certificate states that she
died of the Herpes Simplex Virus.
That is a funny thing as neither my
wife or my self suffer from any type
of Herpes Simplex Virus.
I don't know what to do. I don't
know where to go for help. My heart
is broken forever and I would dearly
love for one of my comrades in arms
to tell me what has happened to my
beautiful little girl. Please help!"
Another gulf war vet shares ...
daughter lived longer:
"A gulf war vet
shared that last year their little
girl turned 10 years old and was
diagnosed with hepatitis. It was an
autoimmune hepatitis and her immune
system was attacking her own liver.
She died Dec, 2003
He knew I was studying such issues
and asked me if I had heard of that.
I said, "No, but that it would be
the kind of thing that
2-butoxyethanol would do"
Liver and kidneys and
systems including blood
are at risk.
The blood damage that is not found
is autoimmune hemolytic anemia.
Maybe you could ask the doctors
whether or not she has that? They
have to check the 'retic rate' and
other things like whether or not the
red blood cells are immature and
whether or not there is blood in

Parents harmed by this chemical can
pass along some of it to their

and if the parents are doing menial
work, like housekeeping, cleaning of
buildings and such, they could very
easily run into this chemical.
