    Default Multiple Chemical Sensitivity on the Rise

    Multiple chemical sensitivities is an overlooked worldwide health epidemic causing massive health problems

    "Research shows that chronic health disease is on the rise – and unfortunately, it’s an epidemic that can’t only be explained by the fact that people are, by and large, living longer (and therefore sticking around long enough to develop age-related health problems). For example, the rates of asthma, autism, and other life-altering conditions in children – as well as adults – are increasing, creating a sizable public health crisis.

    Without question, what’s driving this epidemic is multifactorial. But a growing body of research suggests that a strong – and largely ignored – contributor of chronic illness is multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS). It is truly astounding how the chemicals surrounding us in our day-to-day lives can affect our health (and our children’s health).

    The impact of multiple chemical sensitivities on your health – the research will shock you
    After analyzing survey results of a nationally representative sample of over 1,000 Americans, a team of researchers from the University of Melbourne discovered that 1 in 4 Americans suffer from chemical sensitivity – and their health suffers as a result.

    Common adverse effects that are associated with multiple chemical sensitivities reported in the literature include migraine headaches, asthma, autism, and even lost workdays, productivity, and employment.

    Did you know? The liver is the most important detoxifying organ in the body. When the liver can’t effectively neutralize and dispose of toxins, they accumulate in the body. Two essential nutrients for healthy liver function are milk thistle and glutathione. These two ingredients - plus much more – are now available in an advanced liver support formula.

    The researchers published their results in a 2018 volume of the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine. Importantly, they defined multiple chemical sensitivity, or MCS, as “a medical condition characterized by adverse health effects from exposure to common chemicals and pollutants, from products such as pesticides, new carpet and paint, renovation materials, diesel exhaust, cleaning supplies, perfume, scented laundry products, and air fresheners.”

    Do you see any of those products listed above in your own home? How about your workplace or your children’s schools? When we realize how ubiquitous these common pollutants and chemicals actually are, it’s hard to believe more of us aren’t suffering.

    Another more recent paper published in the journal Air Quality, Atmosphere & Health found that in an international survey of over 4,000 people (including adults from the UK, US, Australia, and Sweden), close to 20% reported a MCS and over 32% reported fragrant sensitivity. Of the 4.5% of the sample that had autism or autism spectrum disorder, a whopping 60.6% and 75.8% of them had either a chemical sensitivity and/or fragrance sensitivity, respectively. A correlation was also seen between MCS and asthma and asthma-like conditions.

    Overall, research indicates that the prevalence of chemical sensitivity has increased by over 300% in America in just the past decade, and at least 61 million people worldwide are believed to be currently affected.

    Tips for protecting your family from environmental chemical exposure
    According to the World Health Organization, close to 60% of the global deaths that occurred in 2001 were due to chronic illness, and by 2020 the proportion of chronic illnesses is expected to increase by as much as 57%. This places a high demand on our healthcare system – one which already places such a heavy significance on conventional reactive treatments including medications and drugs that usually cause as many problems as they attempt to “fix.”

    It’s time to take your health into your own hands and minimize your dependency on a faulty system.

    There’s good reason to, after all. Research shows that lifestyle factors account for as much as 60% (or more) of your overall health and quality of life!

    When it comes to protecting yourself and your family against chemical sensitivity in particular, keep the following suggestions in mind:

    Go organic. Opt for produce that is pesticide-free, minimize your use of canned foods, and wash your food thoroughly.
    Avoid using plastic food containers and water bottles, especially with #7 or #3 on the bottom – choose glass or stainless steel instead.
    Choose natural household beauty products that are free of harsh chemicals and fragrances.
    Get your home checked for radon and ensure your home has high quality ventilation. While you’re at it, grow some indoor plants to help purify your air!"

    I've had significant improvement in my Chemical Sensitivity since I've been treating for heavy metals.

    I'm very high in Aluminum, Lead & Cadmium. And have excess Silver & Mercury.

    MMS, Iodine, a little borax and zeolites are good detoxers. Giving up bread and booze helped me a lot...

    Chemical sensitivity and chemical poisoning of the body are two different matters. It is a good thing, perhaps, that the body reacts to toxins, so that you will know you're being poisoned, while most people are in denial about the presence of toxins in the air, water and foods.

    You may be able to curb the toxins in the foods, but there is virtually nothing you can do about the chemtrail chemicals. I went to Russia to escape the chemtrails over Japan, but, alas, there were chemicals being sprayed even over Siberia. I could tell from the plane that clouds underneath were not natural clouds but results of spraying. (Who in the world is doing that over vast Siberia?)

    In one city, I witnessed planes doing the spraying, although the effects were not the same as in Japan, which probably means that different chemicals were being sprayed.

    One researcher said the chemtrail planes over Japan were US Air Force, based in Kadena, Okinawa.

    It's weird I woke up this morning with a dream of me trying to "sew" some type of
    thick shoe laces or strings to a surface so radon would not escape.
