Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, (MCS), also called environmental illness, is a medical condition in which individuals develop symptoms from very low levels of chemicals in the environment, levels which they previously tolerated and which most people don't even notice. MCS usually results from exposure to toxic chemicals, either in a single massive dose or long term exposures to low doses.
MCS is a widespread, growing public health problem. Nationwide, it is estimated that 15% of the population has become sensitized to one or more common household chemicals or commercial products. Preliminary results of a 1995 California Dept. of Health Services study found 16% of the study population were chemically sensitive and 7% had been diagnosed with MCS. That's approximately 2 million cases in California alone. Another study, using a telephone survey, found that 3.9% of respondents had symptoms of MCS that occurred daily.
These are just a few of the items to consider. A person with MCS may have many other specific requirements, depending on the severity of their condition. No property will be perfect, but some are much better than others. For people with MCS, their health, ability to work, and even their lives may depend on finding a tolerable place to live.
