“Sensitive” humans are not defective or here to inconvenience you.
Some canary history:
“Carbon monoxide, a potentially deadly gas devoid of color, taste or smell, can form underground during a mine fire or after a mine explosion.
Today’s coal miners must rely on carbon monoxide detectors and monitors to recognize its presence underground. However, before the availability of modern detection devices, miners turned to Mother Nature for assistance.
Canaries — and sometimes mice — were used to alert miners to the presence of the poisonous gas. Following a mine fire or explosion, mine rescuers would descend into the mine carrying a canary in a small wooden or metal cage.
Any sign of distress from the canary was a clear signal that the conditions underground were unsafe, prompting a hasty return to the surface.
Miners who survive the initial effects of a mine fire or explosion may experience carbon monoxide asphyxia.
According to tests conducted by the Bureau of Mines, canaries were preferred over mice to alert coal miners to the presence of carbon monoxide underground, because canaries more visibly demonstrated signs of distress in the presence of small quantities of the noxious gas.
For instance, when consumed by the effects of carbon monoxide, a canary would sway noticeably on his perch before falling, a much better indicator of danger than the limited struggle and squatting, extended posture a mouse might assume.”

Human canaries (people with MCS/ES) can put things into words. We can tell you why we are keeling over, and what products are making us keel over. We can warn you that you will eventually be affected by the substances that are making us keel over.
We know that advertising is powerful, and that freedom of choice is a deeply held “right”. We also know that most people would not willingly or knowingly choose to use products that are harmful to their own health, or to the health of others, near or far.
When products are full of unregulated, unlabeled toxic chemicals, you are not practicing “freedom of choice” when you keep using those products after someone says they are being harmed by the products. The corporations have chosen for you.
In memory of all the canaries, feathered and human, who have been ignored, abandoned, harassed, and lost.
May all beings become aware and begin to care.
