New Multiple Chemical Sensitivity book

New Perspective on Big Issue: Why Are We So Sick?
Illness activist, Glenna Chance, seeks to reverse society’s toxic trend in new book
An illness activist with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity is bringing a new perspective to the role society plays in our overall health.
In Which Poison Will Change Your Life? (published by AuthorHouse), Glenna Chance brings readers an eye-opening look at today’s “invisible illnesses.” Highlighting the confusion that surrounds the language of the food and chemical industries, Chance, a long-time environmental consultant, unveils explanations and examples with detailed chapters including “What Is It… Really?” and “What’s In It… Really?” Aiming to clarify terms and definitions that many assume they understand, Chance’s mission is to provide readers with the factual information needed to prevent future illness.
The book introduces and explains the author’s own illness, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, and related “invisible illnesses” which include Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Autoimmune Disease among others. Comprehensively addressing government involvement in these illnesses and the problems they create, Which Poison Will Change Your Life encourages readers to question the medical status quo, seek scientific truth, and support environmental and disabled law.
“Although progress has been hard-won, MCS and related invisible illnesses are now impossible to ignore,” says Chance. “This book explains not only the fact that these illnesses exist, but why they exist and how to halt their spread.”
While pursuing her career in music in 1988, Chance was poisoned due to an illegal pesticide application. Her life-altering diagnosis of the chronic illness Multiple Chemical Sensitivity catapulted her into a new direction, and she has since battled the physical ramifications and lack of legal parity that often accompany MCS disability. Chance has worked tirelessly to bring recognition to the illness and support to sufferers.
A thought-provoking and enlightening read, Which Poison Will Change Your Life? ultimately focuses on what the public can do to become informed and change their lives for the better.
“I want readers to learn that they have to help themselves,” says Chance. “This book illustrates how our medical and societal ills are connected and how our attitudes need to change before we will ever be happy, healthy and safe.”
