We know that the air pollution caused by airplanes constantly flying around the globe is one of the biggest factors damaging the environment. Did you know, however, that the detrimental impact of this pollution is not only restricted to the air outside the plane, but the air inside the cabin is also affected. The Observer newspaper has revealed today that â€˜pilots, cabin crew and passengers are being exposed to a potentially toxic gasâ€™.
Antony Barnett writes: â€˜that in the past three years there have been reports of more than 100 incidents where fumes have contaminated the air inside British aircraft. The gases are potentially damaging to health, with one new report from University College London suggesting that up to 197,000 passengers are exposed to the contaminated air every year.â€™
What this toxic gas will do to you is not mentioned in the TH post, but still, add another nasty thing to the list of crap we shouldn't be breathing.
