The most common mistake people make is to subject persons with sensitivities to a reverse onus when they report their experience of repeatable, controllable circumstances, contrary to ethics, social convention and laws since the Magna Carta. This practice is unethical in any context, but becomes especially damaging in clinical medicine.
"An important point is the fear of liability (at the legal and moral level) which perpetrates attitudes and actions. The protective psychological mechanism that comes into action when one knows deeply other people have been harmed, because of their negligence, or because they have been hiding behind the presumed lack of science, because they have minimized, belittled the issues, this mechanism which hides behind denial, camouflage, or aggression needs to be uncovered. Consequences need to be brought to the conscious level, for healing to take place, and prevention to take its role.
“We examined the prevalence of multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS), a hypersensitivity to common chemical substances. We used a randomly selected sample of 1582 respondents from the Atlanta, Ga, standard metropolitan statistical area. We found that 12.6% of our sample reported the hypersensitivity and that, while the hypersensitivity is more common in women, it is experienced by both men and women of a variety of ages and educational levels.
This report's 244 page annotated bibliography on environmental effects on health includes articles about reactions affecting the central nervous system dating back to 1908. The report and bibliography were written by Bruce Small and Associates for Health and Welfare Canada in 1988.
Some politicians will quite casually lie in ways that cause thousands of deaths. Most will turn a blind eye to damaging statements from their party if doing otherwise means acknowledging previous liability. When told of harm caused by their colleagues, politicians such as Paul Dewar launch into an ad hominem defence, diverting attention while vulnerable persons continue to be needlessly killed.
Agencies of remedy exploit peoples' terror, telling persons with diagnosed sensitivities that they will be shunned unless they they help cover up agency mistakes that are contributing to the ongoing killing of persons with undiagnosed sensitivities.
Researchers at the University of Toronto accepted money and pretended that things already known were not known. They accepted money to research things they knew or ought to have known were impossibly defined. They allow the damaging misinterpretation of their work by funders.
When approached, a couple of Councillors with the City of Ottawa asked for a summary of municipal concerns. The result is the attached PowerPoint, addressed to the City of Ottawa. It applies to most cities in Ontario and, to a lesser extent, to cities across Canada. The presentation is also available in pdf format.
One of the greatest concerns is that municipal public health officials contribute to damages by eclipsing the history of persons with sensitivities behind controversy about the recent additional theories of so-called "doctors of environmental medicine."
The Public Service Integrity Officer, Dr. Ed Keyserlingk, says public servants are afraid to speak out about abuse. Certainly several are remaining silent about this unethical and damaging eclipse, quoting retribution as their reason.
