An oasis in a toxic world

An oasis in a toxic world

By Eloise Horsfield
April 11, 2012

SHE can’t use paper or normal shampoo, and going near any electrical appliances could kill her.

Spaniard Jennyfer Sausa suffers from an extreme case of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), a medical condition whose victims are highly intolerant to any unnatural substances – making a normal life nigh-on impossible.

Forced to live with her mother in the middle of a desert in Arizona, the 27-year-old’s life could not be more different from that of her friends back home in Valladolid.

She is the youngest member of a desert community where 60 people with MCS have gathered to live due to the cleanliness of the air.

All the houses in her remote village, near Snowflake, are made from entirely natural materials – and one 30-year-old man even roams naked due to an allergy to clothes.

Due to serious allergies, Jennyfer needs constant health checks to ensure she has not risked her own life by doing something most people consider perfectly normal, like walking on a carpet or drinking from a plastic bottle.

And while living in Arizona has improved her health, sadly Jennyfer will never be able to leave this protective bubble and return to a normal life in Spain.
