New PAGE on Statistics for MCS/ES, FM and ME/CFS

I’ve assembled prevalence statistics from Canada and the US into one place, including images and links to documents with more information.

Included are links and images with Canadian stats for MCS/ES, FM, and ME/CFS, and US stats for MCS. I will update to include more stats from more countries when I have reliable sources for them. Please share any that you are aware of.

The new page is located at the top of this site under the MCS/ES page, or via this link:

Statistics for MCS/ES, FM and ME/CFS

Here is a sample of what you will find there:

According to The Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) and Statistics Canada, between 2005 and 2010 the rates of people diagnosed with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS), Fibromyalgia (FM) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) in Canada increased significantly.

The number of people diagnosed with MCS increased by 31%
The number of people diagnosed with FM increased by 15%
The number of people diagnosed with CFS increased by 24%

(for perspective)

You can find all the statistics, links and images in the ‘Statistics for MCS/ES, FM and ME/CFS’ page at the top of this site under the MCS/ES page, or click on this link:

With gratitude to the National ME/FM Action Network for much of the material.

    • There is some serious speculation (the definitive research has not been completed) that mold is a causative factor in ME/CFS, and many people who are mold injured also experience MCS. It wouldn’t surprise me if for some people it triggered Fibro flares too!

  2. Thanks, pretty revealing!

    Of course mold is a ‘toxin’ too, so of course it’s correct to say that MCS can be caused by this ‘toxic state’ mould produces as well as by many other ‘toxic chemicals’.

    It looks to me like anything above CFS, FM and/or MCS are the primary symptoms of MCS anyway. When will they acknowledge this?

    Glad to see you back! Hope your dental issues are getting better : )

    Watch Dr. Pompa’s video about MCS on YouTube. I think you will find this VERY interesting!

    Big hug, be strong! : )
