YOSAKIME has a number of unique terms. These terms were coined for the purpose of both highlighting the cause – sensationalizing the information and organizational efforts, if you will – and for clearly describing the conditions and needs of the Multiple Chemical Sensitive community.
The following is a legend of sorts, a YOSAKTIONARY of YOSAKIME coined/used TERMS.
