Multiple Chemical Sensitivity: It’s Not In Your Head And New Findings Why It Exists

Today we are discussing multiple chemical sensitivity.  Have you ever known someone who cannot tolerate perfumes or the smell of a certain food?  While these individuals often suffer with great social and occupational criticism, what they are suffering with is real and not made up. Today we will discuss the science behind this condition and reasons for treatment.
