3.5 Billion Unknowingly Poisoned By Airlines Each Year
It’s been five months since our first investigative report about the serious health hazards associated with modern air travel: “Asbestos of the Sky” – The Aviation Industry’s Darkest Coverup.
I wish the title of the article were hyperbole, but it really is that dark, and the coverup stretches over half a century, being no less devastating to public health than other agendas you may already be familiar with such as Big Tobacco’s Smoking-Cancer link and the CDC’s Vaccine-Autism coverup.
The proof is in how many people still know absolutely nothing about the devastating health risks of bleed-air being fed directly into the cabins of planes from their engines.
Thankfully, the tides are beginning to shift. There has been a flurry of global reporting on new research from Stirling University hosted on the WHO’s website that confirms there is a clear pattern of and chronic symptoms ranging from breathing and vision problems, to neurological ones like headaches and dizziness in those exposed to the air blown from engines into aircraft cabins.
The Daily Mail, reporting on the new study recently stated:
There is a clear cause-and-effect relationship linking health effects to a design feature that allows the aircraft air supply to become contaminated by engine oils and other fluids in normal flight.
This is a clear occupational and public health issue with direct flight-safety consequences.
The Telegraph’s headline is even more to the point: “New health concerns – and cancer link – over toxic cabin air breathed by 3.5 billion passengers each year“
If you or anyone you know flies, nothing could be more important than for you to know what you are being exposed to, and what can be done about it. I am convinced that consumer pressure on the industry will be the critical factor in reforming the industry, and not top-down political pressure by lawmakers, which will come only much later.
The first positive sign is that Boeing has already developed a non-toxic alternative called the 787 Dreamliner which is the only plane that takes fresh air from outside instead of directly from compressors in the jet engines to supply the cabin. Unfortunately, at this time, it is only rarely used for domestic flights. But consumer education and subsequent demand can quickly correct that problem!

EgyptAir Flight MS804: The Conspiracy Theories Begin
Was it aliens or an insider job? Conspiracists are already on the case as to why the plane crashed?
Egypt's civil aviation minister has warned people not to make up conspiracy theories and to wait for the full results of the investigation into last week's crash of EgyptAir flight MS804. But despite Sharif Fathi's appeal, several ideas over the plane's fate have already emerged…
The number game
Twitter user Kevin Andrews noticed there were exactly 804 days between the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 and last week's crash – of EgyptAir flight MS804, the Daily Mirror reports.
He's right. The last voice contact made by MH370 was at 5:19pm on 17 March 2014 while the Egyptian flight's final contact was 804 days later, at around 2:30am on 19 May 19 2016.
The UFO sighting
Two Turkish pilots claim they saw a UFO flying over their plane in the same location that MS804 went missing "just an hour before the doomed EgyptAir jet crashed," the Daily Mail says.
The pilots told air traffic controllers: "An unidentified object with green lights passed 2,000ft to 3,000ft above us," Hurriyet Daily News reports. "Then it disappeared all of a sudden. We are guessing that it was a UFO."
The inside job
Australian civil aviation expert Geoffrey Thomas told RT that although good, the security protocols at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, where the flight took off, are not impenetrable. "The one thing what the industry does fear is the 'inside job', when you have an airport worker who might be associated with some groups," he said. "There's always a possibility that something is smuggled on board."
The truth about flights MH370 and MS804 "remains elusive", he adds. "Hopefully the cause of the MS804 crash will be uncovered soon. Maybe mechanical accidents were to blame for the tragedies, maybe there was malfeasance. But while we linger in the uncomfortable absence of certainty, it's no surprise that our brains will nudge us to assume intent – and it's a small leap from intent to intrigue."
