Living in pain and isolation. HOSTILE REACTION / While victirns of 20th-century disease fight to get their illness recognized, sorne doctors say it's all nonsense. 1991.
Mickleburgh ignores the actual history of person with sensitivities, replacing it with the self-aggrandizing revisionist version provided by so-called "doctors of environmental medicine." He unethically subjects his subject to a reverse onus concerning her experience of repeatable, controllable circumstances, encouraging and helping others to do the same. He ignores the fact that a 1985 Ontario report identified an existing, legally obligating, publicly insured method of diagnosis. He ignores the work being done at the time by the Canadian Human Rights Commission, Health and Welfare Canada, CMHC and several other departments to address precisely the unethical positions he puts forward as credible. Since this article was written, more than 80,000 Canadians with sensitivities have been unnecessarily killed in health care because of attitudes encouraged by the confusions Mickleburgh and others put forward.
