Re: WHAT A SMELLY WORLD!

Yeah, it says a lot. I've always said that as many
individuals experience environmental illnesses, it's their
first time of entering into other disciplines, fields of
expertise, science, whatever. Each one of these individuals
sounds nuts. In total, as a 'group' they discredit and
destroy hope of credible, capable scientists ever gaining
legitimate interest in the subject.
Another complicating factor is that, as legitimate as it may
be, only those that have experienced it can understand or
Finally, it goes back to cause and effect, and the lack of any
hope of immediate feedback. If people fell over dead every
time they had an exposure (the same exposure), or fell over
dead everytime thay walked into the same building, it would
not be long before they concluded "something" was present and
it will kill you. With MCS, mold, etc., most affected people
look OK to everyone else, they're not falling over dead.
Compare it to a severe automobile accident, and rolling he
victim into the courtroom all mangled up, in traction, limbs
missing, etc. Now that's something that can easily be seen -
"Oh my God, look at that poor injured person, damn near dead"
OK Mary, it's easy to see why an ambulance chaser could be all
that's required to win big in PI cases.
