Detoxifcation Can Help Pilots, Cabin Crew, and Passengers to and Restore Good Health
More people are experiencing health problems as a result of exposure to Toxic Fumes and Vapours encountered whilst flying!
In 2009 a Senate Inquiry in Canbera found exposure to the fumes of lubricant oils used in small planes such as the BAe 146 jets caused health problems such as headaches, vomiting, breathing problems and even partial paralysis for pilots, flight attendants and passengers.
The reason this occurs is simple: cabin air comes through the jet engine UNFILTERED (bleed air) DIRECTLY into the aircraft and is distributed throughout the flight deck and passenger cabin.
Hence the air we breathe on board an aircraft can be contaminated as it has come into direct contact with the engine, hydraulic fluids, Oils, additives and Jet Fuel etc.
“The oils and hydraulics used in airplane engines are toxic, and specific ingredients of such materials are irritating, sensitising and neurotoxic…. Where contamination of air in the flight deck and passenger cabin occurs that is sufficient to cause symptoms of discomfort, fatigue, irritation or toxicity”( Michaelis & Winder:2005).
It is well documented that flyers are being exposed to contaminated air that can contain a whole variety of harmful substances including: Engine Oil Additives, Heavy Metals, Jet Fuel, Hydraulic Fluid, Exhaust fumes, Pesticides,and De-Icing Fluid to name but a few.
Recent coverage and reports in the press make it clear that if you travel on an aircraft there is a risk of exposure to a variety of contaminants and toxins that can seriously effect your short term and long term health:-
In January 2009, investigative journalists from German and Swiss TV secretly took 31 swabs from aircraft cabins on popular airlines. These were analysed in the laboratories at the University of British Columbia under the supervision of Professor Christian van Netten, a leading toxicologist. Twenty-eight of the swabs were found to have dangerously high levels of TCP.”(Independent:17.03.09)
to be just one of the airborne contaminants discovered to seriously damage the nervous system. Symptoms of Toxic Overload Toxic overload has been implicated in many health conditions and physical symptoms can include: fatigue, fibromyalgia, headaches, joint or muscle pain, frequent colds and flus, allergies, hormonal imbalance, electro sensitivity, chemical sensitivity, sinus congestion, psoriasis and other skin conditions, loss of dexterity, insomnia, and more. Fibrocystic Breast Disease (FBD) in women to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children.
Psychological symptoms include poor concentration, memory loss, mood changes, mental confusion, and changes in behavior.
Treating the damage alone cannot stop the process; we must also address the cause, specifically this toxic residue in our tissues.We must detoxify.
Elevated levels of Nickel and Beryllium have been found to have accumulated in pilots, cabin crew, and passengers. An accumulation of heavy metals may often reduce immune function leading to frequent bacterial and viral infections.
Heavy metal toxicity can result in damaged or reduced mental and central nervous function, lower energy levels, and damage to blood composition, lungs, kidneys, liver, and other vital organs. Long-term exposure may result in slowly progressing physical, muscular, and neurological degenerative processes that mimic Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis. Allergies are not uncommon and repeated long-term contact with some metals or their compounds may even cause cancer (International Occupational Safety and Health Information Centre 1999).
Heavy metals and other chemicals can also disrupt the delicate balance of the intestinal flora. The result is unfriendly bacteria, viruses and fungus can flourish causing such problems as leaky gut, Poor Digestion, IBS and Candida to name but a few.
Toxic Stress Toxic stress often causes the body to use up its vital reserves of nutrients which are essential for detoxification. This is why many of us are poor detoxifiers. Doctors have found this to be especially true for people suffering from toxic overload.
Tests have shown that stress can trigger deficiencies in Zinc, Magnesium,Manganese, Vitamin B12 and folic acid which are vital for detoxification.
Also a substance called glutathione which is essential for detoxification has been found to as much as 80% depleted in people suffering from toxic overload. So supplementation and a good diet are crucial for the body’s detoxification mechanisms to function properly.
The formula for wellness involves detoxifying and correcting nutrient deficiencies. The body can then begin healing itself when it has unloaded its burden of stockpiled toxins
Until recently the cause of the health problems for many pilots, cabin crew and indeed passengers has remained a mystery. It has become clear that repeated exposure to toxins on the aircraft has resulted in many pilots, cabin crew and even passengers having to stop work due to poor health.
