MCS
Multiple Chemical Sensitivities



About MCS

The problem of MCS affects hundreds of thousands of people in industrialized and developing countries. That says something in itself. It has to do with the way industry affects nature; of how industry affects our environment and many people. It ruins lives, as do CFS and FM.

The immune and nervous systems of MCS sufferers have broken down. We don't know what is wrong with us, but we do know we are sick. MCS often progresses slowly and it's causes are difficult to prove.

What does your average family physician know about the causes and treatment of people with CFS and FM? Now, consider MCS. Can you imagine going to this same physician with the various symptoms of MCS? The lack of education in the medical field is unbelievably high.

There is so much varied and complicated information about MCS, that I will refer you to a wonderful Canadian organization and their Web Site. This organization does battle for CFS and FM, as well as for MCS.

The Environmental Illness Society of Canada - EISC
and
La societe canadienne pour les sensibilities environnmental SCSE have wonderful, bilingual Web Site.

They are having a Web Auction to raise funds to help subsidize patients' and advocates with MCS/CFS/FM, to attend the first ever International Environmental Conference. This conference will be held in Ottawa in November of the year 2000. This Society also played a huge part in bringing this International Conference to fruition.

This Web Auction is to ensure that we are not victimized, yet, again. The Conference is ABOUT and FOR us. Because so many of us have also been victimized financially by these illnesses, we would not be able to attend without financial aid.

We will not be invisible at this Conference.
