In a world that glorifies the signature scent and equates cleanliness with the smell of pine, is it really necessary to question why an MCS sufferer finds his/her self in isolation? Central nervous system depressants and carcinogens are present in everyday products affecting indoor air quality in homes, schools and offices around the world.
People are becoming increasingly aware of the dangers of chemicals and of how real chemical allergies really are. Once referred to as a “spurious disease,” the growing numbers of people suffering from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Syndrome worldwide is sparking interest and support.
There are choices that we can make everyday to reduce chemical exposures and indoor air pollution. Firstly, we must begin by redefining the meaning of a clean home.
Help your loved one stay involved and active by following these simple rules.
- Clothes washed with regular laundry detergent
- Wearing dry cleaned clothes
- Wearing clothes that have spent time next to items with any type of fragrance
- Wearing nail polish
- Wearing leather, suede, or any other material that requires protective sprays
- Anything that is scented (shampoo, hairspray, creams, perfumes, body sprays, etc.)
- Chewing gum, breath mints, etc.
