Woman with disabilities nears medically assisted death after futile bid for affordable housing

quote [ A 31-year-old Toronto woman who uses a wheelchair is nearing final approval for a medically assisted death request after a fruitless bid to secure an affordable apartment that doesn't worsen her chronic illnesses. ]

And who would care about affordable housing

Does anybody here have good resources on MCS? I'm a bit of a skeptic, but I don't want to be on the wrong side of history.

I don't know anything about MCS, but my paranoia before starting resin printing led to a shitload of stories from people that didn't follow proper safety protocols and gave themselves all sorts of reactive conditions. So the idea of it isn't too suspicious. Especially when we're basically drowning in pollution from the air we breathe, to our drinking water, to even our freaking food. Kinda sounds like a catchall diagnosis for various poisoning side effects.

Skeptical of what? Do you think people are faking it?

Psychosomatic, more like. "Blinded clinical trials show that people with MCS react as often and as strongly to placebos as they do to chemical stimuli." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiple_chemical_sensitivity
