Spain Officially Recognizes Multipel Chemical Sensitivities, the condition of the “bubble people” - official press release. 24 September 2014. Spain is thus the latest addition to the list of countries which officially recognise MCS as a valid diagnosis, like Germany (2000), Austria (2001), Japan (2009), Switzerland (2010) or Denmark (2012). Its purpose is “to offer recognition of this physical disorder associated to the exposure to toxic chemicals and thus to provide and facilitate its clinical and legal management” so that the people affected “can enjoy basic rights in terms of healthcare and assistance and other rights associated stated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in every democratic country constitution.”
