Please join us in letting the world know we exist!
We have important wisdom to share with everyone!

 “Delegitimizing those with ES-MCS, who may be warning us all of the need for toxics reduction, also tends to impede development of practical, precautionary, potentially preventive and cost-saving public health strategies.”

MCS Mask Challenge for Family, Friends, and You!

Here’s an easy way for everyone to show some support!

And maybe, just maybe, wearing a mask for an hour or a day will spread some understanding of  why the people who fought for smoke free policies did that instead of expecting all non-smokers to just wear masks always and everywhere.

The Mask Challenge is brought to you by

Memes For Inconvenient Disabilities

Help us make May 2017 the last time that we ever hear or read the words:

“MCS? #NeverHeardOfIt!!”

#MaskChallenge! Do it! Grow #MCSAwareness!

MCS/ES Awareness Day Projects: Request for Submissions

Marie Leblanc, an artist from Winnipeg who is living with MCS/ES herself, is compiling information and statements to put into an MCS awareness project. There are two  ideas  to contribute to.

The easier one is to share  shorter personal statements about your life with MCS/ES and related environmentally linked health conditions,  which will be projected onto walls in a way similar to the photo below.

 

The other project involves answering 6 questions:

When a Friend’s Life Is Being Threatened

Guest Post

A few of us in the MCS community have been burning the proverbial candle at both ends and in the middle, trying to generate public awareness and interest to persuade the NS housing authority to reconsider their 3 year battle to evict our good friend Wendy, despite no accessible alternatives being available.

Their unwillingness to understand and accommodate her disability and her medical team’s recommendations… well, it’s something a lot of us have faced and are facing.

Wanted: Whack-A-Toxic Game Maker

Some of us find online computer games to be a good way to keep our brains from atrophying when we are disabled by all the toxic chemicals allowed to be used in everyday products and materials.

Here’s a game idea that we’d like developed:

whackatoxic

It would have to have an adjustable, variable speed (some of our brains are very slow), as well as an on-off switch for sounds (some of us are also sound “sensitive” when our CNS has been fried from exposures).

The products that pop up can be virtually all regular laundry, cleaning, and personal care products, pesticides, new clothing, shoes, furniture, new electronics, most plastics, in fact, almost anything new. Toxic, health-harming petrochemicals are everywhere now!

The game could be turned into an educational tool too (instead of just a therapeutic tool) by including hyperlinks that inform what the known and suspected to-be-harmful and still-questionable chemicals are in each product, and what health effects they can cause! Scoring could be based on whacking (eliminating) the most toxic products first!

Can someone please make us this game?

In the meantime, here’s an existing way to be active in learning and changing the toxic world we currently live in to a safer one:
