Some people report that they react to chemicals in their environment and that
these allergy-like reactions appear to result from exposure to a wide variety of
synthetic and natural substances, such as those found in paints, carpeting,
plastics, perfumes, cigarette smoke, and plants. Although the symptoms may
resemble some of the manifestations of allergies, sensitivity to chemicals does
not represent a true allergic reaction involving IgE and the release of
histamine or other chemicals.
