Aerotoxic syndrome - Toxic airline cabin air could be making you sick

Have you ever flown on an airplane and later become mysteriously ill? Maybe you developed a headache, had trouble breathing or experienced severe brain fog?

Aerotoxic Syndrome, the unofficial name now being used to identify the laundry list of both acute and chronic symptoms caused by breathing contaminated jet cabin air (http://www.aerotoxic.org/index.php/about-aerotoxic-syndrome#symptoms), include things like chronic fatigue, respiratory difficulties, vision problems and cognitive disorder.

For some, the symptoms may be short-lived, but for others, persistent neurological damage may occur as a result of exposure, and many don't even realize it's happening until it's too late.
