Man made chemical pollution is becoming an increasingly important issue with respect to our health. I know this, as it became a very important issue for my health, first at age 11 when I developed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and then at 20 when I became highly sensitive to minute amounts of everyday chemical products (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity).

I set up the website The Environmental Illness Resource ( to provide information and resources for people similarly affected by chemicals in the environment. I hope this group will provide another forum for fellow canaries!
