After reviewing his research papers on the Pilot Depression Study and the Passenger Cabin Air Quality Study, it was very disturbing that his only focus on environmental factors was Ozone and Flame Retardant interior chemicals. There was not one mention of the more serious chemical issues for passengers and crew which are the Organophosphates, Hydraulic Fluids, Kerosene, Oil and the many other toxic cocktails of lubricants. … More Harvard Airline Pilot Study: Depression or Poisoned by Cabin Air ?
