3 Books for Sale at CIIN

Speaking of the print vs digital world, CIIN sells 3 books on its web site:

1. Dr. Mayer's book, "Strategies for Surviving Chemical Sensitivity, the basics" This is a new book that has been out less than a year, and has gotten very good feedback from our members.

2. Cynthia's book on chemical injury, "Chemical Exposure and Human Health" which is probably the best work on chemical health issues ever written by a lay person. It is no longer in print, but CIIN has gotten a few used, good condition copies.

3. The workbook from the San Francisco workshop on a case definition for Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. At 730 pages, this is the best collection of papers on MCS, and our supply is limited. It was the starting point for the doctors and researchers who came to San Francisco.

CIIN is now on Twitter

We just signed up to have Chemical Injury Information Network on Twitter at

CIIN has been slowly entering the digital world because it is so prevalent and wide-ranging. The drawback, of course, is that so many of the chemically injured cannot participate on the internet, either due to the chemical smells from the plastics and resins in computers, or because of electrical sensitivity which often accompanies MCS.

We have no intentions to ever do away with the print version of our monthly newsletter Our Toxic Times. In spite of its cost and labor-intensive requirements, the paper version is our mainstay and our connection to our members. It's not going away.

So there you go. If you have access to Twitter, please check us out.
