Disinsection on Airlines

[fa icon="calendar'] Aug 18, 2016 5:25:19 PM / by Winter Ninivaggi

Do you know what the airlines are doing to you?Personally, I'm really shocked and appalled that this is something that goes on in an aircraft.
Did you know that while you are on a flight YOU yourself are being sprayed pretty directly with pesticides and insecticides? And this is permitted under international law.
The insecticides can cause flu like symptoms. It is scary knowing now that I was just on a plane for 9 hours and I have no idea how many chemicals I was purposefully exposed to without my knowledge.
This can't be safe for the flight attendants either. You can see in the video below that the attendant spraying is disgusted by her face and uses a barrier between her hand and the spray bottle. If it is not safe to touch; it is not safe to spray on people.

This stuff is being sprayed on everyone, so that means men, women and CHILDREN. There is no reason a child should be directly exposed to harsh chemicals.

“This process is being referred to as “disinsection,” a word that seems to have been made up by the TSA or airline industry. Disinsection, or the spraying of an insecticide or pesticides on planes, is now permitted under international law. The Department of Transportation says that the supposed intent is to protect public health, crops and agriculture, and the environment.”
"The International Civil Aviation Organization and World Health Organization (WHO) admit that aircraft cabins are being sprayed with what they are calling a “fast-acting insecticide” with passengers on board, right before takeoff.  Some airlines are instead treating aircraft interiors with a “residual-insecticide aerosol” right before passengers get on board.”
Take a minute to check out this article about what is going on in these airplanes.
You're more likely to have been sprayed with chemicals than be attacked by a terrorist act. 
This has been going on for a long time and people need to know about it. If you just got back from a flight and aren't feeling well it could be this. Good news is we carry "Airline Pesticide Detox" to detoxify the body from the numerous chemicals that you were exposed to on your flight.
