Do You Know


Who Is  Chemically Sensitive?


Just a whiff of cologne, detergent, or tobacco smoke could make a person with MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivities) sick for hours, days, or longer. People with MCS risk jeopardizing their health to obtain what most of us take for granted: food, medical care, access to businesses, schools, even social contact.

     If someone you know has MCS - a family member, friend, neighbor, client, student, or patient - you can be part of the solution. Simple measures costing little or nothing can improve access for people with MCS while providing good air quality that benefits everyone. Your cooperation will be much appreciated!
