Zitat: „New health concerns – and cancer link – over toxic cabin air breathed by 3.5 billion passengers each year „

Zitat: „oxic cabin air breathed by passengers, pilots and cabin crew is linked to cancer, chronic fatigue and neurological problems, according to new research in a World Health Organisation (WHO) journal.

The Public Health Panorama report into so-called aerotoxic syndrome – the name given to the health effects of exposure to bleed air, used to pressurise aircraft cabins, that has been contaminated with chemicals such as engine oil – found a clear link between both short- and long-term symptoms and illnesses and toxic fume events.

It said that in 2015 more than 3.5 billion passengers and 500,000 pilots and cabin crew were exposed to low levels of engine oils in the air.“

Zitat: „BA Pilot’s Family Says “Aerotoxic Syndrome” Contributed to Death“, 07.04.2017

Zitat: „In life, British Airways Captain Richard Westgate struggled with serious health problems as well an uphill battle to convince his doctors and employer that his medical issues were related to toxic air in the cockpit. Following Westgate’s death, his family has picked up that gauntlet.

The Daily Mail reports that Westgate’s 47-year-old twin brother and fellow British Airways pilot, Guy recently testified on his brother’s behalf. Guy Westgate detailed the deceased aviator and close loved one’s tragic story in an emotional testimony before a coroner’s inquest in Salisbury, England. Dr. Simon Fox QC, the coroner leading the inquest, has already announced that he will not consider allegedly toxic flight deck conditions on commercial jetliners as a possible cause of death.

The coroner stated at the onset of the hearing that the inquest will instead determine other factors that may have contributed to the former pilot’s death, including a likely heart condition and the possibility that he took his own life by way of a drug overdose. Guy Westgate absolutely dismissed the notion that his brother committed suicide in testimony this week.

“He was angry, frustrated, disillusioned. He couldn’t believe he was let down by so many people,” Westgate told the courtroom. “He couldn’t believe the medical profession let him down so badly.”

Zitat: „British Airways pilot died, after he was poisoned by contaminated cockpit air but doctors did not believe him‘ his emotional twin tells inquest“

Zitat: „By Alexander Robertson For Mailonline
Published: 20:09 BST, 6 April 2017 | Updated: 22:46 BST, 6 April 2017

– Richard Westgate said ill health was caused by toxic fumes filtering into cockpit

– The BA pilot grew ‚angry and frustrated‘ by UK doctors who could not cure him

– Suffered severe headaches, sight problems and insomnia before he died in 2012

– His twin brother told Salisbury Coroner’s Court that he felt ‚let down‘ by doctors

– But coroner ruled so-called aerotoxic syndrome will not be considered at inquest.

A British Airways pilot who claimed his ill health was caused by fumes filtering into the cockpit was let down by doctors who did not believe him, his brother has said.

Richard Westgate had a number of health issues but grew ‚angry, frustrated and disillusioned‘ when British medical professionals were unable to cure him.

The 43-year-old, who ‚lived for flying‘, then grounded himself from piloting planes when bosses refused to permanently sign him off.

He moved to the Netherlands where Dutch medical experts and scientists believed his claims, an inquest heard, and set about trying to cure him.“

Zitat: „Aerotoxic Syndrome: Why You Get Sick While Flying And How To Protect Yourself“

Zitat: „Pan pan pan — fumes aboard

Aerotoxic syndrome is no joke. Imagine standing in front of a fan while someone opens a bottle of motor oil and forces you to inhale the fumes. This is the situation airline passengers face every day when they inhale engine oil mixed with recycled air thanks to faulty engine seals. Crews and passengers who are unusually sensitive to this can develop “aerotoxic syndrome,” an illness caused by exposure to contaminated air in jet aircraft that has been linked to symptoms ranging from sore throats and migraines to chemical pneumonia and brain cell death.
Aerotoxic Syndrome: Disease of Denial

Few diseases have been as underreported and controversial as aerotoxic syndrome, a term given to the illness in 1999 by Dr. Harry Hoffman and professors Chris Winder and Jean Christophe in their report Aerotoxic Syndrome: Adverse Health Effects Following Exposure To Jet Oil Mist During Commercial Flights.“

Zitat: „‘Sick from nerve gas’ – KLM-stewardess fights against lay off“, court-telegraaf-nl, 18.01.2017

Zitat: „‘Sick from nerve gas’

by: Paul Eldering

, Stewardess Evelyn van den Heuvel (32) from Berkel en Rodenrijs has become seriously ill from nerve gasses on board of KLM aircraft. Still her contract was terminated with immediate effect by KLM.

She’s not accepting this fact, as was made clear in the Amsterdam courtroom. Van den Heuveln is suing her employer for the district-court judge because, even after years of pleading and problems, they won’t recognize her complaints.

“According to the company physician she’s not ill. KLM tried everything to keep her within the company and have her do substitute activities, but unfortunately that hasn’t worked out. De illness she claims to have, hasn’t been scientifically proved formally” so say the KLM advocates/counsels/lawyers/attorneys.

Medical doctor and former KLM pilot Michel Mulder, who is researching this so called ‘aerotoxic syndrome’, claims the opposite. “According to new data approximately 70 pilots, 500 cabin crew and 35.000 passengers who are physically prone to the toxic TCP fumes, from this. Some will die because of it. Pilots become sick in the cockpit.”“

Zitat: “Asbestos of the Sky”, Sayer Ji, Founder, 03.01.2017

Ein wenig Aufklärung gefällig ?

..für Jeden der sich heute noch freiwillig in ein Flugzeug mit Zapfluft setzt…also mehr als 98% der global verfügbaren Flugzeuge…nur die B787 ist derzeit die einzig „gesunde“ Maschine, wo der Passagier und Pilot und Crew beim Flug NICHT vergiftet werden…

Zitat: „“Asbestos of the Sky” – The Aviation Industry’s Darkest Coverup

The aviation industry hangs its hat on air travel being „the safest way to travel.“ The truth, however, is that it has harbored a dark secret since its inception: it’s poisoning its passengers and crew due to deeply flawed aircraft design, de-prioritizing safety in favor of profit.“
