It was announced earlier this month that Japan has officially recognized MCS as a real illness.

An estimated 700.000 people suffer from Chemical Sensitivity (CS) , and the health coverage is based on the list of illnesses used in electronic medical charts and electronic treatment fee claims forms.

The Government for the first time has officially recognized Chemical Sensitivity (CS), also known in other parts of the world, as Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), due to the Medical Information System Development Center (MEDIS-DC) , who on June 1st 2009, contacted the Sick House Syndrome Liaison Committee and gave the excellent news that

it planned on October 1st 2009, to add Chemical Sensitivity (CS) to the list of illnesses used in electronic medical charts and electronic treatment fee claims forms.


This is huge! Hopefully now more countries will follow suit. It will take time but we will win this fight!
