260. JOHN HOYTE: AIRLINE PILOT WHO WAS DISABLED BY TOXIC CABIN AIR EXPOSURE

Jets have a design flaw--the cabin air comes from the engine area. This causes toxic oils from the engine to be inhaled by people on board. These are neither filtered nor monitored.

HERE is the Rumble link. 

This is how the oil residue gets swept into the cabin.

This happens solely in pressurized planes flying above 10,000 feet. It affects all who board an aircraft, usually from repeated exposures but sometimes from a single, severe “oil fume event.” It is related to wear and maintenance status and occurs to some degree in every plane before the aircraft’s first flight of the day. Pilots and crew are the most often harmed, but passengers can also be impacted. 

The newest jet, the Boeing 787, is the only one with air intakes far away from the engines. These planes are about five percent of the current operational fleet.

Mr. Hoyte flew jets from 1989 to 2005 and had multiple nonspecific memory and neurological issues. He got sicker and sicker and eventually had to quit with no worker’s compensation or idea of what happened to him. 

A study about this “aerotoxic syndrome” was published in 1999, and he was diagnosed by Dr. Sarah Myhill in 2006. HERE is a website about her practice.

Most flying public is still unaware of the dangers of exposure to toxic cabin fumes. The air inside the cabin is neither monitored nor filtered. Toxic oils from the jet are conveyed from the engines into the cabin and affect all who fly.

This brief 2013 Australian ABC documentary film is the best summary:

One of the authorities from the airline industry, Professor Michael Bagshaw, says the injuries are only “an association” with jet flights. We have heard this spurious argument many times from big Pharma about their drugs.

This same guy denied Hoyte compensation for his injuries.

I do not know how more substantial proof could be found than many people on a single flight from London to Florida coming down with respiratory and other symptoms. Upon arrival to Florida, some were hospitalized suffering from wheezing, violent nausea, tummy cramps, blisters on arms and hands, chest pain, severe headaches, vertigo, insomnia and loss of balance. Forty of them filed a lawsuit.

Bagshaw also claims that air quality monitors cannot measure these toxic exposures. The truth is that simple carbon monoxide monitors are an excellent marker for these issues.

Airlines are always skating on the edge of bankruptcy. They have little choice but to try to ignore this issue. But their high-functioning pilots are waking up en masse. Mr. Hoyte describes the lawsuits in progress against the airlines. Over 200 “Unite the Union” aerotoxic syndrome cases are progressing through UK courts as of 2020. But the Civil Aviation Authority still maintains, “there is no positive evidence of a link between exposure to contaminants in cabin air and any long-term health effects.”

Recently, a new blood test became available that will show flyers’ exposures to oil fumes. It has been in development for 20 years and will be compelling evidence about their injuries. HERE is a summary of this by UK aviation journalist David Learmount.

Mr. Hoyte adds:

Jet engine seals were originally well maintained until 1978 when deregulation allowed service intervals to be extended from 5,000 to 10,000 to 20,000 to now 50,000 hours before overhaul. But with a design flaw on day one allowing oil & air to mix – lack of maintenance & cost savings has become a huge factor as the seals are designed to leak!

But with no sensors on board to detect or record (despite now being available), there is no evidence trail.

A biomarker blood test will be available shortly that can be used before and after the flight if you have engine oil in your blood and feel bad.

The US Cabin Air Safety Act of 2023 will address these issues…

I got off a 5-hour Caribbean Air flight several days ago. The air from the nozzle above me smelled heavily of oil, and I felt sick. I still feel terrible and would have written it off to jet lag, but now I know better. I suspect their maintenance is as laid back as their countries.

HERE is the link to help Mr. Hoyte

He has not been able to work. He says:

I’m trying to keep going at a critical time, having personally invested around £300K since 2006. I face bankruptcy just as we are on the verge of winning with the US Biomarker blood test.

I have almost the perfect story for the media, but I need some help to tell it.

I also donated £75,000 to the production of A Dark Reflection or Flight 313: The Conspiracy. In 2013, I had to sell my home to make ends meet.

Sadly, Aerotoxic is all about vast amounts of money – whilst I’m all about principle.

Parting shot: nearly everything revolves around the mouth

John’s symptoms have improved but have continued many years after his last toxic fumes exposure. I asked him the most basic question about his health—the question you must ask yourself if you have health problems. Do you have any dental work in your mouth? He told me he has amalgams and a root canal. Dr. Gammal, the author of The Garbage Collector, says you must take that trash out if you want to get better

John replied that he needed financial help. To support his efforts, use the links above. 

I wrote to Mr. Hoyte:

Read The Garbage Collector. This book and the literature it cites have overwhelming stories about health recovery after getting rid of dental mercury. Root canals and implants may be even worse, but dentists continually deny it. Gammal says they must be removed--every one. Dr. Gammal has seen many people get well after pulling a single root canal tooth. 

I put your request for funding into my essay, but you need to realize no one is coming to save you. You must figure this out right there, on the ground. Dental schools might help. And going to an emergency hospital claiming excruciating pain might work. Dr. G says the ligament around the tooth should be drilled out, but simply pulling the tooth might be enough. Many dentists can do this; these dead teeth are often loose and easy to remove. If you decide to replace your amalgams, nontoxic, non-metallic materials such as Admira or Saremco should be used. Do your homework and make your decisions—I have neither experience or credentials, so none of this is advice.

John and I also discussed a European Union breakthrough that may help him get the mercury out of his mouth. Mercola reports:

  • The European Commission has proposed a ban on dental amalgam as of January 1, 2025. This includes not only the use but also the manufacture and export of dental amalgam. The European Parliament and Council must ratify the proposal for it to become law

  • Once amalgam is banned in the EU, it’ll be difficult for the U.S. and Canada to hold on to the barbaric and archaic practice of loading neurotoxic mercury into people’s mouths

  • Countries that have already phased out or banned dental mercury include the Philippines, New Caledonia, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Moldova

  • Please support the mission of Consumers for Dental Choice to end the use of dental mercury worldwide. [Mercola will match] donations made during Mercury Awareness Week dollar for dollar

HERE is an interview about this development.
