Abstract

Multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS) is a chronic condition of irritation and inflammation of sensory organs, gastrointestinal distress, fatigue, and compromised neurological function, including learning and memory deficits, unpleasant smells, tingling of nerves, and sensory discomfort. Victims report these symptoms after exposure to unfamiliar chemicals. Some studies have linked MCS to immune system dysregulation. MCS is believed to be a disease that spreads between various target organs, and is caused by sensitization to chemicals with very differentstructures. MCS is often attributed to free radical production and stress, which indirectly cause spreading because of damage to the immunesystem.
