Why a canary?

Why a canary?
Why is the image of a canary used to represent people with environmental sensitivities/multiple chemical sensitivity (ES/MCS)? Until the advancement of modern technology, coal miners would work underground accompanied by canaries because they are particularly sensitive to carbon monoxide. Any sign of distress from the canary was a clear signal warning the otherwise unaware miners that the environmental conditions in the mine were unsafe and that they should be evacuated. People with ES/MCS are like the canaries in the coal mine. They are sensitive and have reactions to substances or phenomena in our environment at levels that are tolerated by people who do not have ES/MCS. Their condition may be invisible, but it is real, and they are warning others that common environmental exposures can negatively impact many chronic medical conditions and pregnancy outcomes. People with ES/MCS can identify the effects of these exposures immediately, but you don’t have to have ES/MCS to still be harmed. The human canaries are warning that the environment is pushing us along a continuum leading to the emergence of more and more cases of common chronic diseases, starting at birth.

Michel Gaudet

Michel Gaudet has worked on environmental health issues for over twenty years. Most importantly, he played an important role in municipal and provincial legislation on pesticides. He is one of the founding members and President of the Coalition for Alternatives to Pesticides founded in 1999 and a founding member, Vice-President and Executive Director of the Environmental Health Association of Quebec. In 2012 he collaborated with the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM), TELUQ and SAC of UQAM to develop a project on the biological, social and legal aspects of environmental sensitivities entitled ‘When the environment makes you ill: Need to understand, need to act’. He has given many workshops on this project in more than ten regions of Quebec. He has also participated in many conferences in the United States and Canada.

Paul Héroux

Paul Héroux, Ph.D. Dr. Paul Héroux is a scientist with experience in electrical engineering (15 years), and in the health sciences (27 years). He started his research career at Institut de Recherche d'Hydro-Québec in Varennes, Québec, an internationally reputed electro-technical research laboratory. After rounding out his formation with courses in Biology and Medicine, he became interested in health problems connected with electromagnetism. He was appointed Associate Professor at McGill University's Faculty of Medicine in the Occupational Health program, of which he is the current director. He was also appointed Medical Scientist in the Department of Surgery of the Royal Victoria Hospital (currently McGill University Health Center), following his work on the pathophysiology of electrical burns. His major research contributions include the design and construction of a dosimeter to assess exposure of humans to electromagnetic radiation, a definitive study on the pathophysiology of electrical burns, the development of a diagnostic method (Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy) based on the electrical properties of living tissues, and a computerized system based on machine vision for the assessment of the effects of combinations of medical and environmental agents on cultured human cells. In the specific area of bioelectromagnetics, he documented Karyotype Contraction, the loss of chromosomes by hyperploid cancer cells under metabolic suppression. The same phenomenon of Karyotype Contraction was exhibited by human cancer cells exposed to extra-low-frequency magnetic fields. This work led to the conclusion that electromagnetic fields act on mitochondria to suppress metabolism by inhibiting the transport of protons and electrons in inter-molecular tunneling,…
