Toxic Cabin air may be causing neurological problems in airlines crew

long-term–low-level (LTLL) contamination, such as that to which aircrew are exposed, has been shown to be more injurious than short-term acute exposure. Aircrew breathe

Causal summaries identify the individuals and organizations that seem to be most at fault, balancing between probable cause and contributing factors.
