Bell, I.R., et. al.,

“Differing Patterns of Cognitive Dysfunction and Heart Rate Reactivity in Chemically Intolerant Individuals With and Without Lifestyle Changes.”

These researchers looked at people with the symptom of intolerance to low levels of environmental chemicals (a common symptom in CFS). They attempted to differentiate between those who had made lifestyle changes as a result of the symptoms and those who had not. While the study group was quite small, just 18 persons, the group that was forced to make lifestyle changes showed a higher rate of family history of alcohol problems, abuse and attention deficit disorder. The ultimate conclusion, however, was that persons with chemical intolerance “comprise a heterogeneous population.”
