ME/CFS and gluten?

Apologies to readers who might have already read about this story. The UK Mail on Sunday (February 13th 2011) carries an article by Esther Rantzen on her daughter who has ME. UK viewers will know Esther from such classic TV programmes such as That's Life. In recent years she has discussed ME as a consequence of her daughter's diagnosis. The article in the Mail regarding a possible link between ingestion of gluten and ME/CFS can be viewed here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1356316/At-I-discovered-secret-Emilys-14-lost-years-Esther-Rantzen.html Many thanks, ESPA Research

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity is in the news!

There was a time not so long ago when nobody had even heard of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS). In fact, when I first developed the condition only 7 years ago I didn't meet anybody who had heard of it, apart from others who were suffering like I was. This lack of awareness only adds to the considerable suffering and feelings of isolation that come with being affected by MCS.  As any MCS sufferer will tell you it's one thing to have a disabling illness and quite another to have nobody believe you have a disabling illness! Thankfully awareness of MCS now seems to be spreading thanks to a steady stream of coverage in the mainstream media. To stay on top of things I receive daily email updates from the Google News website (Google Alerts) on all topics relating to what we cover here at The Environmental Illness Resource. Not long ago there were rarely any...
