Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) is basically a subset of Environmental Illness (EI), which is caused by living in a toxic world. The chemicals that were synthesized after World War II (including, pesticides, synthetic fragrances, cleaning products, detergents, etc.) are mostly “petro-chemicals” (petroleum based) and are quite toxic to humans. There have been virtually no studies done on the majority of these chemicals to see how they affect humans – the industry just placed the chemicals in the environment with the assumption that they are “safe, till proven toxic”, instead of the other way around. One of the biggest offenders is PERFUME and other scented products. Did you know that many of the ingredients in your perfume are the exact same ingredients found in GASOLINE??!! I didn’t either!

  1. THANKS FOR SHARING KATHERN– HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER SOON!!!! HUGS– 🙂

They probably don’t even realize how much they are wearing because they have become so masked to it. I remember returning to my last office to pick up my things after being gone from it for several months and even with my mask the fragrances and chemicals blew me away. I was surprised to realize that they had always wore perfumes.
