Health Alert: Read This Before You Board Another Airplane, Part I

Friday, May 21, 2010 by: Paul Fassa

There is a more sinister danger lurking in commercial airline flights than microbes being recycled in cabin air. Something in cockpit and cabin air occasionally visits human lungs and wreaks havoc with human health. There are many victims whose plights are not publicized or not understood by medical authorities, and the international airline and aircraft industries want it that way.

Toxins from contaminated bleed air in the cockpit and cabin have the potential of creatingaerotoxic syndrome, which can lead to a long term debilitating battle with your health if the pilots manage to stay conscious enough to get their oxygen masks on and keep from crashing!

Bleed Air Dangers

Bleed air is air forced into the airplane for breathing via engine turbine compression sections. The air is cooled and forced into the aircraft interior from inside the engine cowling or cover. Most cabin air is 60% bleed air and 40% recycled air. Pilots are subject to 100% bleed air, so they get hit the hardest from bleed air contaminants.

The contaminants are in engine and hydraulic oils that sometimes leak and burn off vapors into the bleed air. Some of those oils contain large amounts of an organophosphate calledtricresyl phosphate (TCP). Organophosphates are nerve gas agents used in insecticides and pesticides, which many nations have banned. They are deadly!

A group of Swiss/German TV investigative journalists swabbed interior cabin samples from 31 different commercial aircrafts to Professor Christian van Netten, a leading toxicologist at the University of British Columbia. Professor van Netten found 28 of those 31 swabs contained TCP!

The Actual Effects

The long term effects are mostly neurological, but sometimes pulmonary, creating various symptoms identical to MS (multiple sclerosis) or Guillain-Barre, a paralysis that sometimes occurs after vaccinations! The symptoms vary in intensity, and they’re often crippling in some way.

Just like vaccine injuries, bleed air contamination incidents from the 1960s on were rarely connected to neurological damage, and the airline industries have made sure it stayed that way, even after knowing of the dangers in 1977.

But now the veil of censorship has been ripped by some key victim activists who have done the research to prove their lawsuits against airlines and aircraft manufacturers. Those victims are mostly airline crews and flight attendants whose repeated exposure to bleed air contaminants makes them most vulnerable to aerotoxic syndrome.

The activist victims are not disgruntled employees looking to get something out of their employers. Many pilots and flight attendants are forced into medical retirement with debilitating health issues.The Independent, reported that 27 pilots suffering from cognitive dysfunction were tested at University College London in 2006, and high amounts of jet-engine oil chemicals were discovered in their blood and fat.

There are incidents where pilots couldn’t function and were losing vision, or were desperately ill until moments after donning their oxygen masks. Sometimes one of the pilots would pass out leaving the other stricken pilot with the task of handling the aircraft. Incapacitated pilots are invitations to disaster.

Passengers Stricken Also

Cabin air filters are useless for protecting against burnt oil contaminants. There are reported cases of passengers who have had problems, some very serious and long lasting, from even one flight where the burnt oil smell was noticeable.

A pilot reported how the passengers looked ill and “zombie-like” after a he had protected himself with oxygen from a surge of burnt oil bleed air throughout the plane. How many of those passengers had the lingering negative health effects that would never be connected to bleed air contamination on that flight?

More to come in Part II.
