Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) is one chemical-related illness that hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves. Millions of people all over the world suffer from the debilitating affliction, which often prevents them from engaging in everyday life in many ways we all take for granted. Recently there’s been growing awareness about MCS, which is often brought on by exposure (even low-level exposure) to a variety of chemical compounds. As the world’s largest chemicals manufacturer, Dow undoubtedly bears a great deal of responsibility for the suffering of MCS-affected people – which perhaps explains its studied ignorance (Dow has no official position available on its website). Just another way that Dow lives up to its motto: Living, Poisoned Daily.
Meanwhile one of the leading organizations speaking out about MCS and leading the campaign for justice is the Global Recognition Campaign for Multiple Chemical sensitivity. Please check out their comprehensive website, at www.mcs-global.org. Another good site for more information is the MCS Homepage.
