Re: Proof of Chemical Sensitivity in Mainstream Medical Research

Vague phrases are like the static of a badly positioned radio.
There was no outlined summary of the article cited. Not even
a page number. Thus, there is no reason to believe that the
subject matter in that article pertains to the subject matter
addressed herein. Filing a civil action, in itself, is not a
tort offense. Not even filing a class action is. Likewise,
filing a single plantiff civil action can result in punitive
costs and other costs against that one single plaintiff. So,
what's the point in mentioning this?
What does that particular article have to do with the repeated
observation that certain persons spent efforts in seeking to
destroy, in every venue available to them, the reputations of
an entire class of people, while simultaneously omitting facts
and citing things already reported to have been erroneously
and/or incompletely presented?
Anyway . . .To Whom it May Concern at Large, let's re-address
the objective of seeking to find an efficacious way to procure
the restoration of the destroyed reputations of an entire
class of people; of a people who have been mocked and
ridiculed in text and even on TV.
We proceed to the following case in point:
Certain persons have addressed the perfume intolerance
phenomenon in either a false light or in a slight-of-hand
approach that seeks to achieve evasive outcomes. One of the
assertions has been that perfume-intolerant persons are merely
mentally ill phobics of scent. Michael Fumento, for example,
in a literary style reminiscence of the Vice President Spiro
Agnew who resigned in disgrace, called such people
"fragrant-phobic fruitcakes." Well, concerning that one
allegation, let's let the board-certified, accredited, and
licensed professionals of mainstream medical science do the
1] Occupational acute anaphaylactic reaction to assault by
perfume spray in the face; J Am Board Fam Pract. 2001 Mar-Apr;
14(2):137-40. (Anaphaylactic reaction due to 3 sprays in the
face, and no more than that.) Conclusions,(exact quote):
"Perfumes are complex mixtures of more than 4,000 vegetable
and animal extracts and organic and nonorganic compounds.
Fragrances have been found to cause exacerbations of symptoms
and airway obstruction in asthmatic patients, including chest
tightening and wheezing, and are a common cause of cosmetic
allergic contact dermatitis. In many work settings the use of
fragrance is limited. Assault is becoming more common among
workers in the health care setting. Workers should be
prepared to take immediate steps should an employee go into
2] Inhalation challenge effects of perfume scent strips in
patients with asthma (Dept. of Medicine, LSU Medical Ctr, New
Orleans); Annals of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, 1995 Nov;
"Perfume-scented strips in magazines can cause exacerbations
of symptoms and airway obstruction in asthmatic patients.
Severe and atopic asthma increases risk of adverse respiratory
reactions to perfumes." (And yes, it was a double-blind
study, using saline placebos.)

perfumes: a dose-response elicitation study. (National Allergy
Research Centre, Gentofte Hospital, Univ. of Copenhagen,
Denmark); Contact Dermatitis. 2003 Oct;49(4):180-4.

perfumes and similar products. (Dept. of Environmental
Chemistry and Microbiology, National Environmental Research
Institute, Roskilde, Denmark); Contact Dermatitis. 2004

ionization-tandem mass spectrometry analysis of 31 products.)
5] Placebo-controlled challenges with perfume in patients with
asthma-like symptoms. (Asthma and Allergy Centre, Sahlgrenska
Univ. Hospital, Gothenburg, Sweden); Allergy. 1996
"The symptoms are not transmitted via the olfactory nerve,
since the patients could not smell perfume, but they may been
induced by a trigeminal reflex via the respiratory tract or by
Plus, there is:
6] Anaphylactic reaction following hair bleaching. (Klinikum
der Universitat Regensburg, Germany); Hautarzt. 2005 Feb 2.
(Resulted in unconsciousness, in one occasion. The other
occasion of anaphylactic reactions was 3 hours after a patch
test, in which, needless to say, the chemically sensitive 24
year old lady tested positive.)
7] In fact, there is:
Anaphylactic shock during endodontic treatment due to allergy
formaldehyde in a root canal sealant. (Louis Pasteur
University, Strasbourg, France); Allergy. 2003 Nov;58(11):1210-5.
And Concerning the press:
8] The Account of a teacher undergoing an anaphylactic
reaction due to perfume, in New Westminster England, 2004,
9] A Toxic Battery case in Scotland, concerning a chemically
sensitive woman whose intolerance includes that of shampoo
ingredients and perfume products. The assailant admitted that
he knew of her condition, stating, "I did it to get her back.
I regret doing it. I thought she would just get a rash."
Reported by the BBC, it is found at:
And then there is:
10] Rhinolaryngoscopic examination of patients with the
multiple chemical sensitivity syndrome. (Dept of Emergency
Medicine, East Carolina University); Arch Environ Health. 1993
11] Confirmation of chemical sensitivity by means of
double-blind inhalant challenge of toxic volatile chemicals;
(Environmental Health Center -- Dallas); PubMed ID Number
There is much more that can be cited. Much more.
