“What is MCS?

Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS) is a medical condition characterized by debilitating chemical sensitivities.  People who are chemically sensitive are made sick by exposures to chemicals found in many common products such as pesticides, perfumes, tobacco smoke, new carpets, air ”fresheners,” new paint and building materials, and many cleaning and laundry products.  Most of these chemicals will make anyone sick at high levels, but for chemically sensitive people exposures to even small amounts of these substances can cause symptoms.”
