Did you ever wonder why you
often feel discomfort during flights; why you fall ill shortly after
arriving at your destination; or why your concentration is
compromised on business trips involving air travel? Diana
Fairechild, a former international flight attendant who has logged
over ten million miles in the air, explains how today's jet
travel affects us physically and mentally and what we can do about
it. Her book, Jet Smarter, addresses issues such as
jetlag, excessive radiation, pesticide sprays, cleaning chemicals,
lack of humidity, along with oxygen deprivation. Fairechild's
own health problems became the impetus for her books on the pitfalls
of air travel.
Jet Smarter is the
sequel to an earlier book, Jet Smart, which initially
enlightened the public about separate air supplies for pilots and
passengers. Passengers suffer the effects of recycled air and
minimal oxygen levels while the airlines reap dollar benefits from
these cost cutting efforts.
How many "sick"
airplanes have carried you to international destinations? The
interiors of these planes, including the passengers and their
luggage, are routinely doused with pesticides. Learn about the
symptoms which can manifest in passengers who, often unknowingly,
have been exposed to these toxins.
Fairechild peppers her
explanations with a generous amount of humor, as only an insider can
do. She quotes statistics on the cancer rates of pilots &
flight attendants, gives insight on possible reasons for air rage,
and lists many tested solutions for the after-effects of
jetlag. This book tells you how to get your in-flight needs
met, fall asleep, pack, dress and what to eat or drink. It
also includes many comments from readers, news and medical people.
In addition to several useful charts, a list of suggested strategies
at the end of each chapter, makes Jet Smarter a great
reference that will keep you coming back.
