Inhalation of toxic airplane cabin air causes an illness that has been named Aerotoxic Syndromeand is a major flight safety issue. The cabin air is contaminated with oil from the jet engines because a supply of warm compressed air is pumped into the cabin which comes from the air passing through the airplane's jet engines. The air is contaminated through the mixture of air and jet oil when the seals of the engine leak oil into the air that is circulated through them. Due to the design of the way engine oil seals work and the natural wear of the engine seals, these seals cannot be 100% effective, and will leak a certain amount of oil into the air. The seals can also mechanically fail causing a visible "fume" of smoke fumes to enter the cabin. There are no filters of the cabin air supply to prevent this was happening. The effects of inhaling contaminated air can cause serious impairment to the crew and passengers at the time and causes an illness that is often not immediately identified and can have cause chronic long term health effects.
