I found this shocking video on YouTube. It is a tragic example of what happens when a child is misdiagnosed and the family is given a diagnosis of “Multiple Chemical Sensitivity”.
From the video, I seriously doubt that this child is being treated by a board certified Allergist- Immunologist. Her treatment (sub-lingual drops for food allergy???) is definitely not a scientifically proven therapy. The insurance company is absolutely right. ($2500 a month? Who are they kidding?)
It also does not speak well of Fox News’ fact checking department. A phone call to any trained allergist would have revealed to them that this child’s treatment is bogus.
