It ain't us
The USA has no idea - and is totally uneducated in the harm of 2-butoxyethanol. http://www.valdezlink.com/usa_hoodwinked.htm
I'd say the chemical companies care more for corporate profits than they care about human life ... they have a pretty good idea what this chemical does, and they have been using it more and more as the years go on.
Only the public through the Congress can stop them; and when people realize they are are at risk for such serious, unnecessary harm ... they will send up a LOUD cry that Congress will respond to
The chemical companies are more powerful than the President of the USA or EPA or anyone else, for that matter.
Some are treading on thin ice to not give proper risk warnings and to leave the ingredient off the public information. NEGLIGENT FAILURE TO WARN
for starters with Dow Chemical's Simple Green
and Paint company products
, etc, etc!
Let me share about a sweet lady who is now retirement age in IL. She came down 2 years ago with diagnosis of low red blood cell anemia and her doctor is giving her procrit shots (she did not have chemo-therapy). She also has joint problems with loss of cartilage, high blood pressure, high blood sugar (more likely endocrine disruption, not diabetes per se) and kidney problems. I said to my friend who merely cleaned her house faithfully over the years with Lysol Tub 'n Tile, "Are you also growchy, too?"
By the way, Lysol Tub 'n Tile
has 2-2-butoxyethanol and its own pesticide number registration with EPA. Now, if she has too many immature red blood cells, all these ailments & more would be more probably exposure to this chemical than anything else.
Many household cleaning products
have too much of this chemical as a component, making it unsafe for home use.
As for me, I'm waiting for the evidence to come in.
