Defining Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
by Bonnye L. Matthews

A section on Workers’ Compensation, by attorney Randolph I. Gordon will be invaluable to anyone trying to navigate this circuitous, often unresponsive system. It will also serve as a treasured aid to anyone involved in toxic tort litigation. Useful information on hazard communication, regulatory guqwidelines, the validity of low-level exposures, proving causation in the courtroom, coping with skepticism, along with pertinent legal precedents to help you authoritatively present your case to a prospective attorney, are all here!

Bonnye Matthews has done a masterful job of reviewing the latest complicated information on porphyria and making it readable by the layperson. “With understanding porphyria, it is now possible, for the first time, to create a model of MCS.” In a scientific climate insisting on “biomarkers,” this may well be the key to opening the door to the validation of MCS.

If you need to help document your injuries, you can learn about the latest in brain scanning technology, a section written by Gunnar Heuser, M.D., Ph.D. A chapter by Donald Dudley, M.D. will help you critically analyze the medical literature on MCS and sort out the distortions from the facts. You will learn how to defend yourself against arrogant medical misdiagnoses and learn to appreciate the reasons why conventional medicine prefers to define MCS as psychogenic rather than admit that it is an avoidable problem of chemical poisoning.

You might just want to get an extra copy to share with skeptical family members and friends. This is a powerful tool for education and activism.
