Are you saying you think mercury could be a cause of chronic fatigue syndrome or 'gulf war syndrome?' ... or just that it is another chemical that harms (& that bioaccumulates)?
One only needs to check to see that the harm experienced matches the harm that a chemical is known to cause.
That is why I am focusing on ethylene glycol monobutyl ether (2-butoxyethanol
). This chemical ALL BY ITSELF causes all of the 'gulf war syndrome' symptoms. AND it is an exposure that the gulf war troops had. Sadly we may again be poisoning our own troops
with this common cleaning, degreaser product.
I'm only a volunteer (You're getting the benefit of over 3,000 hours of my time ... over a 2 year time period). I hope someone can do something with this information. My theory is provable, however. I don't think you can be harmed by this chemical without having too many immature red blood cells. It is a $50 add on blood test
Consider this. There were 148 casualties of the first gulf war. .... Less than 1/10th of 1% of the force. By one account I saw, we are approaching 30% of all forces that have the 'gulf war syndrome' health issues. Many, many have died already. Out of 700,000 ... that's a lot of people harmed, and their protege.
Shouldn't there be more success in getting an accurate diagnosis for these soldiers?
Consider all the products that contain 2-butoxyethanol
. No wonder CFS and CFIDS definitions are so much like that of 'Gulf War Syndrome' Our general population is at risk for too much exposure too. At 5% concentration, a product is not safe for home use!
This must be an unrecognized national health crisis!
All you have to do to check this out is to double check those with metabolic, blood, glandular, kidney or liver disorders - whether abnormal readings or cancer - and see how many in study groups also have TOO MANY IMMATURE RED BLOOD CELLS!
