Awareness, information, experience and understanding of Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS)

Who is CanaryBird?

In days gone by, canaries were used in coalmines to test for carbon monoxide and other toxic gases. When the bird fell off its perch, it was tools down and miners out.

Today, people experiencing Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS) can closely relate with that little yellow bird. Modern existence is a chemical bombardment, both natural and synthetic - affecting each of us differently and deeply, as some are affected more than others.

Living with MCS is an epic journey of endurance with no definitive route or rules. AWARENESS, information, experience and understanding is what I hope you'll find here at CanaryBird.
