If you will check back in a couple of days, I'll look up the web pages where I explore this topic. Check links on this page
Cuddling with your honey
Being in a crowded shopping mall
Running a museum where many gulf war vets came
Running in a 1979marathan race
All these are true story examples of second hand solvent exposure to what I suspect is the ethylene glycol monobutyl family of chemicals
The solvents, and most particularly ethylene glycol monobutyl ether, are expelled for a time through one's breath. Thus, those closest to you are at risk for getting it in their eyes, which is the worst possible exposure to this solvent.
Gulf war vets wanted to know why their spouses were coming down with the same symptoms (gulf war syndrome' symptoms) and most especially why the little children who were born before the war were, too. Have you ever noticed where a child's eyes are in relationship to one's breath ... when a child is being held?
How close is a spouse to their mate at night? Skin to skin contact ... breath in one's eyes ... They will notice their eyes burn and hurt mostly in the morning and most likely blame allergies for it. It is second hand solvent exposure!
These other examples of exposure, have been reported, as well.
