The Environmental Sensitivities Cycle
Increasingly, scientists are identifying a two-phase process leading to environmental sensitivities.
see url Phase 1: Onset of the illness
The onset of the illness takes place either after chronic low-level exposure to contaminants or after one high-level exposure to a chemical substance, electromagnetic radiation, or a biological agent. The factors involved are called initiating agents (Table 1).
source link The most common initiating agents of the illness are:
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs: solvents, perfumes, formaldehyde and other petrochemical products, exhaust gases from vehicles)
- Electromagnetic radiation and/or fields
These agents can emanate from the structure of a building, some types of furniture and equipment, neighbourhood surroundings, cleaning products, etc. There are also environmental factors which can worsen the symptoms of environmental sensitivities such as lighting, humidity, heat, cold and noise.
The initiating agents cause a loss of tolerance in affected people, thereby triggering the environmental sensitivities cycle.
goption Once environmental sensitivities are triggered, people who are affected often react to several other 60 sekunden binУЄre optionen youtube triggering agents (Table 1), even at very low doses or concentrations. A series of metabolic reactions then brings about many follow link symptoms (figure 1), resulting in a chronic condition.
