Can anybody out there help ?
I have been diagnosed as suffering from the effects of 'Occupational
Exposure' and I am attempting to gather any relevant information that
may show that there is a link between my previous working environment
and my deteriorating health.
I am particularly interested to hear from anyone who has experienced
any other or similar adverse side effects from working with the
following materials and/or substances, and who may hold specific
information, both technical and non-technical, that could prove to be
of interest. In addition, any newspaper articles or journals that may
have been published in relation to this subject:
Frekote 44 N.C. (Mould Releasing Interface) 'Non-cloroflorocarbon'
Kevlar 'pre-preg' (epoxy-resin based fabric)
Trichloroethyene (Industrial cleaning agent)
Carbon Fibre 'pre-preg (epoxy-resin based fabric)
Genklene (Industrial cleaning agent)
Nomex (Honeycombe core)
Symptoms: (during and since exposure)
Cough & sore throat '87 - '91
Various unknown skin rashes '88 - current
General chemical and environmental sensitivities '89 - current.
Symptoms of, or similar to, 'Chronic Fatigue Syndrome ?'
'95 - current.
This is my first time on the Internet and I find myself somewhat
overwhelmed by it's sheer magnitude and the wealth of information that
I find that, on occasion, the information that you seek can be rather
like looking for a needle in a haystack, and in view of this, I would
be greatful for any suggestions as to where I might look for this
specific type of information.
Please Note: Sites that I have knowledge of are: NIOSH, ATSDR, OSHA,
HAZDAT, and the only information that I currently hold are the MS_DS
sheets for Frekote 44.
