Chemical Intolerance in Primary Care Settings: Prevalence, Comorbidity, and Outcomes

The study "A prelimilary investigation of chlorinated hydrocarbons and chronic fatigue syndrome''Med J Aust 1995;163:294-297 found that CFS patients had on average higher serum organochlorine level than the control group.The authors also mention that 3 patients had considerably higher organochlorine levels and that correlated with symptoms of intolerance to chemicals.That's what I want to see.I want scientists to measure chemicals and the rate at which some of us detoxify them.I don't want to say here what I think they should do with their questionnaires.
