Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) is also known as - Environmental Illness (EI), Chemical Sensitivity, Chemical Injury, Toxic Injury, Sick Building Syndrome, Toxic Induced Loss of Tolerance (TILT) and Idiopathic Environmental Intolerance (IEI) just to name a few.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity manifest itself as an unusually severe sensitivity or allergy like reaction. These reactions occur when, a person with MCS, is exposed to simple everyday environmental chemicals and pollutants at levels that are normally deemed safe and well tolerated by the general population.
