E' UN PASSO FONDAMENTALE per arrivare ad una raccomandazione del Perlamento Europeo di riconoscimento di MCE e EHS come malattie e come disabilit' occupazionali.
Adesso noi dobbiamo, impegnare tutte le associazioni e comitati a sollecitare tutti i ns Parlamentari italiani europei a firmare questa raccomandazione.
Occorre un testo base, che oguno modifichera' come crede in modo da sollecitarli da pio' versanti e fronti.

European Parliament: March 12th, 2012
Written declaration on the recognition of multiple chemical sensitivity and electrohypersensitivity in the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD)
The recommendation includes not only ICDs – also Lists of Occupational Diseases.
Pdf is attached, or read text pasted here below the dashed line, or read at the EP website:
Note: This is a Declaration submitted by 5 Members of European Parliament (MEPs, and 5 is the maximum number permitted for initial submission). There is a 3-month period (until June 14th, 2012) during which Members of European Parliament can sign on (for required majority).
All MEP information is easily accessible at:
On the search page simply select a country and click the “Show Result” button (at the righthand side), then on the Results list naming each representative click on each person to see their interests, background, contact details, etc.
Probably this is all available at the European Parliament website in other languages — I don’t know how to accomplish this. Their main homepage to select which language to proceed in is here:

Written declaration on the recognition of multiple chemical sensitivity and
electrohypersensitivity in the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related
Health Problems (ICD)
The European Parliament,
– having regard to its resolution of 4 September 2008 on the mid-term review of the
European Environment and Health Action Plan 2004-2010, particularly recital J thereof,

– having regard to Rule 123 of its Rules of Procedure,
A. whereas health inequalities between different European countries should be eradicated;
B. whereas multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) patients are vulnerable to environmental
pollution and electrohypersensitivity (EHS) patients to electromagnetic radiation, both
involving serious risks in several areas over which they have no influence, such as the air
they breathe and exposure to EM radiation;
1. Recommends that Member States which have not yet done so include MCS and EHS in
their own ICDs and in their ILO-based Lists of Occupational Diseases; suggests that the
WHO Assembly include MCS and EHS in its upcoming ICD-11;
2. Urges Member State governments to apply existing rules regarding EM radiation and
exposure to harmful substances and to apply the precautionary principle strictly, with
effective health and environmental measures, in order to immediately protect those
affected, whose number is growing exponentially;
3. Suggests harmonising the rules on physical agents and harmful substances in the Member
States, on the basis of the strictest existing criteria, and also placing controls on imported
4. Instructs its President to forward this declaration, together with the names of the
signatories, to the Council, the Commission and the parliaments of the Member States.
