Toxic Air in Aircraft


#1

I have just viewed a programme about toxic air in aircraft due to fumes from engines entering the cabin.   I am curious to know how many cabin crew have Parkinsons.    I was an air stewardess for BA in the 70's and wonder if there is any research into this as there is no history of Parkinson's in my family.  I was flying in 747's long haul and now wonder if my career choice has given me PD.  Your views would be of interest.
