This appeared in the MCS Aware news letter and is worth looking at if not contributing to it.
The following information has appeared in an article on the NHS website:
"If you think housework is giving you a headache, you could be right. Household cleaners, along with perfumes and fragranced air fresheners, contain chemicals that can bring on headaches.How to fix it: If you’re susceptible to headaches brought on by certain smells, avoid heavy perfumes and strong-smelling soaps, shampoos and conditioners. Use fragrance-free air fresheners and household cleaners, and keep your doors and windows open as much as possible at home. If a colleague’s perfume is bothering you, put a fan on your desk at work."
It's a good sign that Environmental Illness is beginning to be taken seriously. Please leave your comments on the NHS page above, It's easy to register and your comment should appear straight away. The more comments the better - let the NHS know how many people this affects!
