Mysterious Illness Strikes Hundreds Of Flight Attendants, Causes Rashes And Hair Loss – Are ‘Toxic Uniforms’ Really To Blame Or Is It Fukushima?

“(NaturalNews) Hundreds of Alaska Airlines flight attendants have filed a formal complaint about uniforms they suspect might be causing their skin to rash and develop lesions, and their hair to fall out. But based on the timing of the symptoms and their relation to similar symptoms in local marine life and polar bear populations, it appears as though radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster may also be a potential culprit.

KING 5 News in Seattle, Wash., first broke the news about the ‘mystery illness’ that has reportedly affected at least 280 flight attendants thus far. According to accounts, those afflicted by the condition say they have developed persistently itchy skin, skin lesions, and hair loss, all of which they suspect may have to do with newer flight uniforms that allegedly contain tributyl phosphate, a toxic organophosphorus compound linked to skin problems (http://www.rightdiagnosis.com).

But not everyone is convinced that the uniforms are to blame, including Alexander Higgins who recently connected the dots to discover a potential link to the Fukushima Daiichi disaster. After comparing the flight attendants’ symptoms to those reported on polar bears and marine life from the northwest U.S. throughout the past year, the timing and correlation of the two is highly suspect.

Back in April, AlaskaPublic.org reported that an alarming number of polar bears living in the Beaufort Sea, which is located just north of Alaska and Canada’s Yukon and Northwest Territories, were turning up with skin lesions and Alopecia, which is another name for hair loss. And before the polar bears, it was apparently ice seals and walruses living in the arctic that were suffering similar symptoms (http://www.alaskapublic.org).

Upon these discoveries, it seemed as though scientists and biologists tried every which way to avoid tagging nuclear radiation as the cause, blaming viruses, bacteria, and other factors as potential causes. But all of these hypotheses have failed, under further scrutiny, to prove true, which leaves one major elephant in the room that is not being discussed: nuclear fallout from the Fukushima Daiichi disaster.” Read more.

    If it is radiation you would think that the pilots, other frequent flyers to & from Alaska and Asia, Alaskan residents, Kamchatkans, Japanese and others would be experiencing these same symptoms.

    Frequent flyers, maybe not so much. I’d imagine even they don’t fly nearly as often as flight attendants. As for the pilots, I’d suspect that they would have to exhibit some of the symptoms, too, though the article doesn’t make any mention of the pilots. Then again, the pilots are for all intents and purposes pretty much locked inside the cockpit and don’t come into contact with the people and everything else to the extent that the flight attendants would. I’m also curious, does anyone know if the pilots breathe the same air as everyone else, or do they have their own air system/filtration?

      agreed guys, there is not sufficient info to make an absolute determination. the polar bear similairities is a bit strange though. even if biologists and other trained experts made a determination could you really trust their opinions anymore? Just sayin’.
