Understanding Environmental Illnesses and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
The web address for a downloadable QEESI and interpretation sheet now is:
This includes an explanation of how to interpret the QUEESI. The QUEESI is a diagnostic tool developed by Dr. Miller to determine whether individuals have chemical intolerances.
Also, you can attend a lecture by Dr. Claudia Miller, internationally acclaimed researcher into chemical sensitivity and low level chemical exposures, right in your own home, at no cost. On April 10, 2007, Dr. Milller was the featured speaker on a partnership call about TILT, Toxicant Induced Loss of Tolerance,
sponsored by the Collaborative on Health and the Environment. The audio version of the call, along with slides Dr. Miller used during her presentation, is available free on line. To listen to the call go to www.healthandenvironment.org/articles/partnership_calls/1024
If you want to look at the slides on your computer while listening to the talk, you can download them first from http://healthandenvironment.org/articles/call_resources/1096
PDF’s of other articles by Dr. Miller are also provided.
Dr. Miller co-authored a landmark report for the State of New Jersey on chemical susceptibility in the early 1990’s. She co-authored the book, Chemical Exposures: Low Levels and High Stakes with Nicholas Ashford. She has also served as a consultant to the US government on the illnesses of Gulf War veterans. Dr. Miller has organized and chaired two National Institute of Health meetings on chemical intolerance, one in Tokyo which focused on the need for and use of environmentally controlled hospital units to research chemical intolerance, and one on TILT, Toxicant Induced Loss of Tolerance, the disease mechanism she first described in 1996. She is a tenured professor in Environmental and Occupational Medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Centre.
Dr. Miller presented the 2005 Elliott lecture in Halifax, sponsored by EHANS on Chemical Sensitivity: The State of the Science.

Also, the Collaborative on Health and the Environment (CHE) is a network of over 2700 individual and organizational partners in 42 countries and 48 states, working collectively to advance knowledge and effective action to address growing concerns about the links between human health and environmental factors. Their website, www.healthandenvironment.org, contains a wealth of information, including past partnership calls on a variety of subjects.
