Health Alert: Read This Before You Board Another Airplane, Part II
by Paul Fassa
(NaturalNews) The airline industry is playing a serious game of denial to ignore a dangerous issue while keeping airline passengers in the dark. Many crews and passengers have been stricken with serious health effects known as aerotoxic syndrome from toxic organophosphate TCP fumes that get into the 'bleed air' systems, which provide breathing air for crews and passengers.
See Natural News article "Health Alert: Read This Before You Board Another Airplane, Part I" for vital background information.
For the Record
Jet aircraft bleed air systems inside the engines, which ventilate aircraft cockpits and cabins, have been around since the 1960s. Internal documents gathered for victims' lawsuits show that the commercial airline and aircraft manufacturers have known of contamination hazards from bleed air systems since 1977.
Yet, to this day, how many have seen or heard preflight instructions with warnings and instructions for fumes from bleed air in the cabin? There aren't even warning sensors and devices to alert everyone on board to don those passenger oxygen masks that could be dropped down. It appears the aircraft industries are circling their wagons against the potential of more lawsuits by pretending aerotoxic syndrome from bleed air contamination doesn't even exist!
Grounding aircraft while refitting the bleed air systems obviously endangers the airline industry's bottom line and stock prices. Evidently, actual internal industry information has influenced the design for the newest commercial aircraft. But all those other jet aircrafts use bleed air systems, which are easily contaminated with toxic nerve gas agents from engine oils.
Protecting and Healing Yourself
Some very courageous crews and flight attendants, who have been forced to retire because of long term debilitating neurological and lung disorders, broke the ice a few years ago with lawsuits. They're armed with scientific data and lots of anecdotal reports. They've organized two international groups, The Aerotoxic Association and GCAQE (Global Cabin Air Quality Executive).
These two groups were originated mostly by UK, EU, and Australian crews. Their efforts have made inroads into Australian and British Parliaments, and investigations have begun with industry lobbied opponents countering with industry lies. But American crews and passengers are subject to the same dangers. Dr. Ross of London University estimates 200,000 are adversely affected annually.
Former British Airways pilot Captain Tristan Loraine, an aerotoxic syndrome victim himself, produced an excellent award winning documentary called "Welcome Aboard Toxic Airlines", which has been distributed to various UK government officials.
If you've experienced dizziness, flu like symptoms, vision problems, or unusually long lasting fatigue after a flight, which then extended to bouts of depression, insomnia, lung problems, and mysterious neurological reactions or physical impediments, visit the first two source links below to learn more about treatment and make a report.
Your doctor probably knows nothing of aerotoxic syndrome. You'll likely be dispatched with psychotropic drugs and antibiotics, which only worsen your condition. Passengers worldwide have experienced this sort of treatment, which helps maintain the airline's lethal secret.
For prevention, there are compact masks lined with highly effective activated charcoal to protect against potential TCP fumes in the bleed air. You simply slip it on if there is a vague scent of burning oil or visible fumes. A mask is shown on the Aerotoxic Association website.
Aerotoxic Association founder Tristan Lorraine was interviewed in a CNN-UK report available below. Everyone who flies needs to know about aerotoxin syndrome. Just one TCP vapor exposure can ruin the rest of your life. More public awareness is needed to force government agencies and airline industries into remedial action.
