EHAQ (Environmental Health Association of Québec) is presenting three new videos for
Environmental Sensitivity Awareness Day – May 12, 2019
Presentations are from:
John Molot MD.
“Numerous papers have been published supporting a biological explanation for MCS. These will be reviewed as well as the evolving medical and political perspective.”
David Fancy Ph.D.
…”Drawing from insights from the ‘social model of disability’ this presentation identifies how the current cultural moment presents systematic barriers, negative attitudes and ongoing electromagnetic wounding that puts the responsibility on society for being the main contributing factor in disabling EHS persons.”
Meg Sears Ph.D.
…” Sears notes the urgency of curbing harmful products and thus chronic disease because as people are getting sicker, families and society also suffer and the healthcare budget balloons faster than the Gross Domestic Product – clearly an unsustainable situation.”
The videos are available in both English and French.
