MULTIPLE CHEMICAL SENSITIVITY BOOKLET
Dr. McCampbell has written an excellent introductory booklet entitled Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. It is a succinct easy-to-read overview that is easy for a layperson to understand. This booklet can be an invaluable resource for those who have recently become chemically sensitive. It has also proven useful in helping educate friends, family members, doctors, government agencies, elected officials, and others about multiple chemical sensitivity.
