We know the way of corporations, that are required to place profits before people. And how they don’t tell you this, or some of the risks they expose you to without your knowledge or consent. Well here is a major doozie to put it bluntly. A classic case of hiding the health risks as is done with so many things these days. If you fly regularly you really ought to read this. Be assured also that if you ring the airlines, or anybody in authority in that field, you will doubtless receive a ‘no probs’ they are ‘just scaremongering’ type response. Always these companies play down any risks because after all, if you and millions of others cut back air travel their business would collapse over night. This is the chilling reality.
I seldom fly and in light of this … am even less keen. What is required here is for the airlines to return to how it was in the ’60s as outlined in the article. No doubt this was a cost cutting exercises. Maximising profits is their mantra. EWR
Airline cover-up: Toxic oil from jet engines poisoning passengers and crew for decades
(NaturalHealth365) Aerotoxic syndrome, the term for the illness caused by exposure to contaminated air in jet aircraft, is ruining careers and claiming lives, causing the illness, permanent disability and even death of airline employees and passengers.
Yet the issue is minimized, swept under the rug and largely ignored by corporate giants Boeing and Airbus, with those who speak out facing character assassination, ridicule and even termination.
Aerotoxic syndrome is being called the “asbestos of the airline industry”
Discovered and named by French scientist Dr. Jean-Cristophe Balouet on October 20, 1999, aerotoxic syndrome is believed to affect 250,000 pilots, cabin crew and passengers worldwide.
The problem actually dates back to 1963, when aircraft moved from a fresh air source – air drawn from separate fuselage intake valves – to the use of “bleed air,” direct from the engines, which is mixed with recirculated cabin air at a 50/50 ratio. The synthetic oil used by jets contains organophosphates – used in pesticides and nerve gas, and banned by the EPA for residential use in 2001 because of known toxicity. The byproducts of these carcinogenic organophosphates can include aldehydes and carbon monoxide.
The use of bleed air allows these heated lubricants to come into the passenger cabin in the form of toxic vapors – referred to as a “fume event.” The video (below) clearly reveals the darkest secret within the airline industry – truly shocking!
