MCS debate on 891 ABC Adelaide

September 15, 2006

Chemicals891 ABC Adelaide recently presented a segment on MCS with guests Dr Mark Donohoe, a well-known advocate of environmental medicine, Mr Peter Evans, Convenor of the SA Task Force on MCS, and Dr Jim Fitzgerald from the Department of Health in South Australia.

It is always refreshing to hear the sensible views of Dr Donohoe on MCS, particularly reports of the new research data showing that MCS has links to genetic predisposition and hazardous chemical exposures in the modern environment.

Dr Donohoe’s website on MCS is here:

homepage.mac.com/doctormark/Medical/MCS.html

We now need to move the Department of Health away from the view that MCS might in some people be a psychological condition linked to irrational “belief systems” to one of acceptance that we have here a major health problem which needs specific strategies to address it.

The full radio debate can be downloaded from the ABC’s website here:

ABC Radio National: MCS – When walking out the door can be a hazardous experience

 

(Please note: the ABC has labelled the links on the web page incorrectly – Jim Fitzgerald’s comments are linked against Peter Evan’s name.)
