    I used to get burning sensations on my skin for several weeks after flying on a jet plane. I had thought it was from being exposed to high levels of EMFs while on the plane, but I'm not so sure now after just finding out about Aerotoxic Syndrome as it pertain to jet planes. The following is a 2-min. video describing what it is:

    I think we have discussed this before here. Might be worth doing a search with google site search.

    Best,

    It has been known for quite a time now that pilots get ME/CFS a lot due to this. One of the ME specialists once said that at one of his talks MANY years ago now. He was talking about the cockpit air contaminated with organophosphates.

    Another reason to love flying. Keeping the cockpit air uncontaminated so the pilots can work at their best should be a given.

    Whilst no-one wants pilots who are ill with vision probs and mental confusion.... I think the plane air for the passengers should be equally as important.

    I was going to fly in my plans for the future, I dont think i will now.
