It is necessary to prepare a special separate room for loading. A formaldehyde load examination supported by the Ministry of Environment Japan was conducted in 37 CS patients. The load of formaldehyde gas was 40 and 8 ppb, and the room air pollution guideline value in Japan is 80 ppb. Although the load trial was performed in a double-blind manner, various problems emerged. It became clear through both formaldehyde and placebo load that the patients were in excessive strain states. 6 Entrance of a clean room for CS patients with positive air pressure control to prevent entry of chemicals pollution from the outside.

2 Water A living organism is an electric phenomenon in water. Contamination of the base element of life is getting worse. The trihalomethanes generated by chlorination of water worsen not only CS but also allergies. If person with atopic dermatitis and one with asthma swim in the pool of a hotel, their conditions will worsen within an hour. Human skin easily passes a lipid-soluble chemical substance to the interior of the body. Guinea pig experiments proved that a very small quantity of trihalomethane worsens allergies [2].

The quantity of food additive consumed by one person every day is said to be not less than 20 g [1]. In present-day life, it is impossible to remove an artificial food additive completely. 2 Water A living organism is an electric phenomenon in water.
