Aerotoxic Association

Have you flown and then developed any of the following apparently unexplainable, undiagnosable, mysterious symptoms?

A visible fume event.
Fatigue you can’t shake off, dizziness, trouble concentrating, memory and speech problems, not feeling yourself, mood swings, anxiety attacks, breathing difficulties?

You may well be suffering from Aerotoxic Syndrome.
This was the term given to the illness caused by exposure to contaminated air in jet aircraft. Aerotoxic Syndrome was introduced on 20th October 1999 by Dr Harry Hoffman, Professor Chris Winder and Christophe Balouet, Ph.D

There were times when mentally I did not think I would make it through another day. Oil fumes is a global problem that is just plain wrong and unaddressed.
I felt constantly tired and stressed. Mood swings were becoming more pronounced and irrational – my daughter called them my ‘psycho’ days.
If the bleed air, which is unfiltered, can contain toxic substances, then it is not surprising that passengers and aircrew in particular, (who are subject to repeated exposures) report so many health problems.
I am now in year six of being ill, sometimes I have good days but most are bad.
