I’m excited to report that a new bill has been introduced to the 116th Congress by Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Congressman John Garamendi (D-CA) which explicitly addresses the widespread problem of toxic cabin air, which despite affecting hundreds of millions of travelers worldwide, goes almost completely unacknowledged. As Alisa Brodkowitz, U.S. Attorney and aerotoxic syndrome expert. once stated,
“…the only thing filtering this toxic soup out of the cabin air are the lungs of the passenger and crew.”
As we’ve reported previously in articles such as, “Asbestos of the Sky” – The Aviation Industry’s Darkest Coverup,” the aviation industry has been designing planes since 1963 to pull ‘bleed air’ from their jet engines into the cabins, profoundly compromising the health of their passengers and crew alike.
The industry has known about these health risks, and leaked industry documents now show they have actively covered them up for many years, such as this internal memo from Boeing dated 2007, within which a senior inspector with the company admits there would have to be deaths from the fumes before anything significant would change within the company:
But people have been fighting back with the truth. For instance, my friend and colleague, John Hoyte, pilot and victim of toxic fume exposure, founded theAerotoxic Association in 2007 in order to shed light on the profound health problems associated with these design flaws, and the many ways that the industry can be held accountable and reformed.
We encourage our readers to familiarize themselves with his work, and support his project by becoming a member or making a donation.
If you know someone who flies and yet is not yet aware of these profound health issue, please forward this email to them.
