 PARLIAMENTARY INQUIRY

INTO

MULTIPLE CHEMICAL SENSITIVITY  

MCS is a serious and growing public health problem.

People with MCS are made sick by common chemicals found in many products such as pesticides, paints, new carpets, new building materials, cleaning products, air fresheners, perfumes, personal care products and tobacco smoke.  People with severe MCS are often diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  International studies show that 12% or more of the population have symptoms of MCS with nearly 2% no longer able to work due to common chemical exposures.  Without government recognition of MCS, and

public health action to prevent MCS, the problem will continue to grow. 

Children with Asthma, Allergies and Attention Deficit Disorder

are at increased risk of developing MCS.  

THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR

PEOPLE WITH MCS TO BE HEARD BY PARLIAMENT

THE INQUIRY WILL ALSO HELP TO

GUIDE PUBLIC HEALTH ACTION ON MCS
