D entin hypersensitivity is one of the most common painful conditions affecting oral comfort and function. 1 The Canadian consensus document has defined it as “pain derived from exposed dentin in response to chemical, thermal, tactile or osmotic stimuli which cannot be explained as arising from any other dental defect or disease. 2 It may affect up to 85% of the population. 3 The disease is. Amputated Lives: Coping with Chemical Sensitivity by Alison Johnson Chapter 2 The Elusive Search for a Place to Live Chemically sensitive people face a difficult struggle to find a place to live that will not exacerbate their health problems, a struggle that sometimes can seem almost overwhelming. Some people who are chemically sensitive are. The environmental hypersensitivity symptom inventory. The EHSI is to a large extent based on the IEISI that was developed for assessment of symptom prevalence attributed specifically to odorous/pungent chemicals. The 27 specific symptoms in the IEISI were those reported by at least 20% of a sample with moderate to severe chemical by:

Sensitivity to chemicals, i.e., symptoms or signs related to chemical exposures at levels tolerated by the population at large that is distinct from such well recognized hypersensitivity phenomena as IgE-mediated immediate hypersensitivity reactions, contact dermatitis, and hypersensitivity pneumonitis.

The authors found that % of Americans reported an unusual hypersensitivity to common chemical products such as perfume, fresh paint, pesticides, and other petrochemical-based substances, and 2.   The estimated prevalence rates of chemical hypersensitivity in Australia is % for children year old, and between 16% to % for adults and it is possible that for these people their condition may worsen until it becomes Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. This review summarizes 21 studies in the epidemiologic literature on associations between indoor residential chemical emissions, or emission-related materials or activities, and respiratory health or allergy in infants or children. Associations, some strong, were reported between many risk factors and respiratory or allergic by: EMF Analysis What is Electro-Hypersensitivity (EHS)? Electro-Hypersensitivity (EHS) is a condition that has been known about since and has been called various names in different countries around the world (particularly in Europe, Canada and the former Soviet Union). The labels include Microwave Sickness, Radio Wave Syndrome, EMF Intolerance Syndrome and Rapid Aging Syndrome.
