    Default Proved: MCS is a Physical Illness

    Last Updated on Thursday, 31 March 2011 13:06

    It is now beyond argument that xenobiotics have the potential to damage present and future generations.

    Finally, the argument is laid to rest in an excellent, fully referenced chapter 'Multiple Chemical Sensitivity' by Professor Malcolm Hooper, (Emeritus Professor of Medicinal Chemistry and Chief Scientific Adviser to the British Gulf War Veterans Association ). Published in 'Psychiatry: An Evidence Based Text'.
    Professor Hooper comments:
    • On average 1.5 in 10 people suffer from MCS
    • The British Society of Ecological Medicine (BSEM) has published substantial evidence of MCS as an organic illness that can be diagnosed and treated effectively.
    • A report by the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution endorsed the validity of MCS in its appendices
    • The Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veteran's Illnesses from the USA summarized epidemiological studies indicating that 28-32 per cent of veterans are now ill with symptoms including MCS
    • Many countries now officially recognise MCS as a physical illness including Germany, Australia, Denmark, Austria, Japan, North America and Canada (Sweden recognises electro-sensitivity as a separate condition)
    • MCS is classified by the World Health Organisation (WHO) under the codes: T78.4 and S00-T98

    Yet the Veteran's Administration refuses to acknowledge it and if you say anything about it, they want you to go see mental health!
