'Aerotoxic syndrome' is a bulky term. But what is hidden behind this offers explosive power. Because it is about a booming means of transport: the airplane. And it is a question of contention: Can the air that aircraft crews and passengers inhale above the clouds, endanger health? Background is a system that is installed in almost all passenger aircraft.

In this way, toxic substances can enter the cabin (see box).(source) read original article here source © St.GallerTAGBLATT.ch author © Dominic Wirth
