    Research is sorely needed, particularly now that the progression
    from MCS into diabetes is becoming more noticeable. I received a
    quadruple whammy to build up my NO stocks: 3 months premature (NO
    treated), DDT every night in my musquito net for a whole year,
    Agricultural sprays over the 8000 acres around our home, and
    twenty years of two packs of cigarets a day smoked where I grew
    up (not by me). No wonder I have gone 'funny'. Unexplained
    urticaria for six years (severe vasodilation) with a liberal
    prescription over those six years of twice daily Terfenadin (now
    a banned substance), which 'may' damage the pancreas. What a
    cocktail. No wonder I developed diabetes without genetic reasons
    and never having been overweight. Even my daily exercise during
    my entire life could not prevent that.
    Let there be some research into a 'cure', or at least an
    alleviation of the debilitating symptoms of MCS.
