The author found that the prevalence of diagnosed multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) in Australia was 6.5%. No mention is made about the role of exposure to metals. Exposure to metallic elements has been associated with MCS. Metals are a well-known primary risk factor for idiopathic environmental intolerance. It is important that the medical approach designed to reduce the risk factors for MCS includes preventive strategies of metal exposure.
