Abp. Viganò on truth over fear: COVID-19, the vaccine, and the Great Reset

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano has published another incredible article today …Abp. Viganò on truth over fear: COVID-19, the vaccine, and the Great Reset

This crisis serves to create the conditions necessary to make the Great Reset inevitable, that is, the transition from the world based on Greco-Roman civilization and Christianity to a world without a soul, without roots, without ideals. In practice, it is the passage from the Kingdom of Christ to the Kingdom of the Antichrist.

This Letter reflects in large measure the intervention I will be giving to attendees of the upcoming summit “Truth Over Fear: Covid-19, the Vaccine, and the Great Reset,” on April 30-May 1, 2021, organized by Patrick Coffin. This vital event features over 20 of the world’s top doctors, researchers, and attorneys, and will deliver a scientific and common sense approach to the pseudo-pandemic. All people have a right to informed consent. 

What we have learned so far about the pseudo-pandemic gives us the picture of a disturbing reality and of an even more disturbing criminal conspiracy hatched by misguided minds. This reality, however, is not taken into consideration by those who, hypnotized by media indoctrination, persist in considering a serious seasonal influenza as a pandemic scourge, known treatments as ineffective, and the so-called vaccines that are admittedly useless and harmful as nothing short of miraculous. 

The reputation of pharmaceutical companies

We know that the pharmaceutical giants – AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson – not only have not followed the ordinary protocols for drug testing, but they have a track record of a long history of condemnations for having previously caused grave damage to the population, distributing vaccines that have been revealed to cause disabling diseases.

Conflicts of interest

We know what macroscopic conflicts of interest exist between the pharmaceutical companies and the bodies responsible for their control: in many cases, employees of these companies have passed through the entities which must approve and authorize the use of drugs, and it is difficult to imagine that they – who often continue to have professional ties to Big Pharma – would have the freedom to make a fair and prudent assessment. Indeed, we have just seen recently with the case of AstraZeneca in Europe that the obvious harmfulness of the so-called vaccine – which has led some Nations to suspend its distribution – is not considered a sufficient reason by the EMA (European Medicines Agency) to prohibit its adoption. The recent findings about serious side effects have been designed to exclude the majority of cases and above all to deliberately ignore the causal relationship between inoculation with the vaccine and its short- or long-term side effects. 

Immunity for side effects

We know that, in defiance of any legal principle and the protection of the population, the pharmaceutical companies have demanded total immunity for damages that may arise to patients, who are asked to sign a release form along with their informed consent. Thus, along with the scandalous profits from the sale of the vaccines, the pharmaceutical multinationals guarantee their own impunity for a criminal operation, conducted with the complicity of international institutions and governments. 

Secrecy about the contractual clauses

We know that the contractual terms of the agreements made by nations and by the European Union with these pharmaceutical companies are inaccessible and secret: not even the parliamentarians and political representatives are allowed to see the clauses that they had to approve inside a sealed box. And we know that the same pharmaceutical companies not only are not taking any responsibility for the side effects, but they also declare that they do not even guarantee their effectiveness to provide immunity from the virus. 

The Chinese origin of the virus

We know that the SARS-CoV-2 virus was in all probability produced in a laboratory, with the complicity of the Chinese dictatorship. Since China is one of the main financiers of the WHO after the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, it has been able to prevent any investigation on the origin of the virus or the early stages of its spread. 

Complicity of health personnel

We know that every nation, with very few exceptions, immediately adopted the most absurd health protocols coming from the WHO, beginning with the unfortunate decision not to treat the sick at the onset of the first symptoms, and to subject them to deep ventilation once the flu syndrome degenerated into acute bilateral pneumonia. And this happened with the execrable complicity of health-care personnel – from doctors to hospital staff – provoking thousands of deaths not from COVID, as we are told by the mainstream media, but from incorrect treatment.

Delegitimization and boycott of available treatments

We also know about the furious campaign against the effectiveness of already-existing treatments, from the use of hyperimmune plasma to the use of drugs that many doctors, despite violating the health norms that have been imposed during these months, have deemed it their duty to administer to their patients, with success. And it is not difficult to understand that the low cost of treatments, the fact that many of them are not subject to patents, and above all their immediate effectiveness in treatment represent for pharmaceutical companies and their accomplices a more than sufficient reason to oppose and discredit them, even to the point of banning their use. 

A project planned for years

We know that in order to conduct this criminal operation – since we must speak of a crime against God and against humanity, not of a merely unfortunate fate – it was necessary to have years of planning, conducted systematically, in order to weaken national pandemic plans, drastically reduce the number of beds in hospitals and intensive care units, create a mass of blind, deaf, and dumb employees, no longer doctors, who placed their own safety in the workplace ahead of their duty to cure the sick. The Hippocratic oath was violated in the name of profit for the pharmaceutical companies and the pursuit of a social engineering project. 

Involvement of the health system

We know that in order to obtain the complicity of doctors and scientists, not only has recourse been made to the system of corruption and conflicts of interests that has existed for decades, but also to the distribution of prizes and cash bonuses. To give an example, in Italy a specialist doctor receives 60 euro per hour to administer vaccines in the vaccine centers; general practitioners are given incentives for every patient they have vaccinated; a bed in intensive care is paid about 3000 euros per day by the national health service. It is evident that neither general practitioners, nor hospital personnel, nor regional health agencies have any interest in depriving themselves of huge revenues, after public health has been demolished for the last decade in the name of cuts to waste imposed by the European Union. To give an idea, Italy has received 72 invitations from Brussels to close all the small hospitals that today, under the pretext of the pandemic, have been reopened and financed with funds that the EU allocates on loan with constraints and conditionalities that in other moments would have been judged unacceptable. Yet these hospitals worked well, making it possible to offer widespread service to citizens, and they were able to avoid the spread of disease.

The fundamental role of the media

We know that nations have granted funding to the media, as a contribution to information on COVID. In Italy the Giuseppe Conte Government allocated large amounts so that the national information system would give one aligned version of the pandemic, and it censored any voice of dissent. The dissemination of data on the infections and deaths has been grossly manipulated, suggesting that every person with a positive test result should be considered sick, even though the asymptomatic are not contagious – by the very admission of the WHO and the analogous bodies in the United States, Canada, Australia, etc. And alongside these government fundings, in many cases the conflict of interest with the pharmaceutical companies has also been able to interfere with the choices of broadcasters and newspapers, on the one hand because BigPharma represents one of the principal buyers of advertising space, and on the other hand because it is present on the board of directors of information companies. It is difficult to believe that the editor of a newspaper, even if persuaded that the pandemic is a fraud, would dare to go against the CEO or deprive the newspaper of the advertising profits from Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson.

Social media responsibility

We know that in addition to the complicity of the media, the infernal machine of social media, from Facebook to Twitter, from Google to YouTube, has mobilized a brazen and scandalous censorship operation, to the point of erasing the profiles of eminent scientists and established journalists, for the sole reason that they did not obey the diktats of the COVID narrative. Even in this case, it is not surprising to discover the economic and kinship relations existing between these colossal multinationals, which over time have become the owners of information and the arbiters of who has the right to free speech and who does not.

Cui prodest? – Who benefits?

We also know who the primary beneficiaries of the pandemic are, in economic terms: the usurers of the banks, who have the power to keep ideologically aligned companies afloat, and at the same time to make small businesses fail if they are an annoying obstacle to the establishment of the New World Order. These small companies, spread above all across the Old Continent and especially in Italy, constitute the social fabric and economic identity of many nations. Their widespread diffusion disturbs the multinationals of large distribution, from Amazon to JustEat, which during the period of lockdown have increased their profits in a scandalous way, to the detriment of normal commercial activities, because that book that we used to buy at the corner bookstore must now be ordered online, along with lunch, printer toner, and dishwasher detergent. This “new economy” imposed itself with arrogance in just a few weeks last year, thanks to the simultaneous closing of stores and the stay-at-home orders that were imposed on citizens. 


We know that the need to indoctrinate the young generations could not exclude scholastic and university instruction from this plan, which today is given via “distance learning” with very grave psychological consequences for children and young people. This operation today lays the foundations for ensuring that one day the teaching offered via the internet can be unified, deciding which teachers are allowed to give lessons and what they should say, and I will not be surprised if soon this aligned form of education soon includes an increasingly small number of teachers: one single history professor for all students of a nation, with a program that is narrowly defined and controlled. This is not a far-off reality, when every student is obliged to connect online and can no longer use a teacher at his own school, who has been forced into retirement or removed from teaching because he does not comply with the orders of power. Nor can we be surprised if the new teachers are holograms that elaborate algorithms, or disturbing artificial intelligences that indoctrinate millions of young people into gender theory, LGBT doctrine, and all of the moral aberrations that we have anticipated in recent years. 

The promoters of the pandemic

We know who are the theorists of the pandemic as the instrumentum regni, from

Bill Gates to George Soros, in a network of complicity of interests so vast and organized that any measure of opposition is practically impossible. Along with them, we find the most disturbing repertoire of so-called philanthropic organizations and lobbies of power, like the World Economic Forum with Klaus Schwab, the WHO and all of its national branches, the Trilateral Commission, the Bildeberg group, the Council for Inclusive Capitalism headed by Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild under the spiritual direction of Bergoglio and, more generally, the phalanx of multinationals, banks, and groups of power that belong to this dome of conspirators. Do not be surprised if, in perfect coherence with their plans, the sects and world Satanist movements also mobilize, beginning with the Church of Satan that exalts abortion as a propitiatory ritual for the end of the pandemic, exactly as BigPharma requires pseudo-vaccines produced with aborted fetuses. 

Subjugation of the Catholic Hierarchy

Finally, we know – and this is certainly the most shocking aspect – that part of the Catholic hierarchy is also present in this plan, which in Jorge Mario Bergoglio finds an obedient preacher of the pandemic narrative and the primary sponsor of the vaccines, who has not hesitated to define them as “a moral duty,” despite the very serious ethical and religious concerns which they raise. Bergoglio even went to the point of having himself interviewed by the Vaticanist Domenico Agasso, in a conversation contained in a book called Dio e il mondo che verrà, to recommend to the masses the administration of the gene serum and to furnish an authoritative and unfortunate endorsement of the ideology of globalism. And since March 2020, the Holy See has shown itself to be perfectly aligned with the globalist plan by ordering the closure of churches and the suspension of the celebration and administration of the Sacraments. If this had not really happened, and instead a strong condemnation of this antihuman and antichristic project had occurred, the highest levels of the Church would have had a difficult time accepting subjecting the multitudes to absurd limitations on their natural freedoms, in the name of not only an ideological enslavement but obviously also economic and social. 

Let’s not forget that, as a counterpart to the loss of the faithful in the churches and the resulting drastic reduction in the offerings for the bishops’ conferences, there must necessarily be an alternative form of financing that it will not take us long to discover. I think that neither communist China, nor de Rothschild, nor Bill and Melinda Gates (who, as I learned from an authoritative source, have opened an account at IOR, the Vatican Bank), nor the network of self-styled democratic parties – the international Left – obedient to globalist ideology, are foreign to this operation. On the other hand, the Great Reset envisages the establishment of a Universal Religion that is ecumenical, ecological and Malthusian, which sees in Bergoglio its natural leader, as was recently recognized by Masonry. The adoration of the pachamama in the Vatican, the Abu Dhabi agreement, the Encyclical Fratelli tutti and the upcoming sabbath of Astana all point in this direction, completing the inexorable dissolutive process of the Church that began with the Second Vatican Council.

If something does not work, it can be used for something else

It must be recognized that the apparent illogicality of what we see happening – the boycotting of preventative treatments, erroneous therapies, ineffective vaccines, lockdowns with no usefulness, the use of masks that are absolutely useless – makes perfect sense as soon as we understand that the declared purpose – defeating the alleged pandemic – is a lie, and that the real purpose is the planning of an economic, social, and religious crisis using an artfully provoked pseudo-pandemic as a tool. Only in this way can we understand that the simultaneity and univocity of the provisions adopted by various nations, the aligned narration of the media, and the behavior of political leaders. There is a single script under a single direction, which makes use of the collaboration and complicity of politicians and rulers, doctors and scientists, bishops and priests, journalists and intellectuals, actors and influencers, multinationals and bankers, public employees and speculators. Profits and gains are instrumental to this, because they purchase and assure the loyalty of subordinates, but this war – may we never forget this! – is an ideological and religious war.

Two opposite worlds

This crisis serves to create the conditions necessary to make the Great Reset inevitable, that is, the transition from the world based on Greco-Roman civilization and Christianity to a world without a soul, without roots, without ideals. In practice, it is the passage from the Kingdom of Christ to the Kingdom of the Antichrist, from a virtuous society that punishes evildoers to the impious and wicked society that punishes the good. That detestable idea of “equality” that was earlier instilled in us by freethinkers has now been used to equate good and evil, right and wrong, beautiful and ugly, under the pretext of recognizing freedom of expression; today it serves to promote evil, injustice, and what is wrong, and even make them obligatory, in order to delegitimize and prohibit goodness, justice, and beauty. Consistent with this vision, ecumenism too – which was initially introduced into the sacred enclosure by the Council under the pretext of bringing back heretics and schismatics – today shows its antichristic charge, incorporating all the false religions into a pantheon but proscribing the Apostolic Roman Catholic Religion, because it is the only true one and as such is irreconcilable with doctrinal error and moral deviation. We therefore ought to understand that, if we do not passively witness the changes underway and we do not allow the globalist ideology to be imposed on us in all of its most abject forms, we will soon be considered criminals, hostes publici because we are faithful to a jealous God who does not tolerate mixing with idols and prostitution. The deception of liberty, equality, and fraternity propagated by Masonry consists precisely in usurping the primacy of God to give it to Satan, with the apparent pretext – which is in any case erroneous and immoral – of placing God and Satan on the same level in such a way as to allow an alleged freedom of choice that morally does not exist. But the final purpose, the true and un-confessable one, is fundamentally theological, because the author of the rebellion is always the same, the eternally Defeated One. 

Nemo propheta in patria

Of course, what we see happening today before our eyes could have been understood and predicted for years, if we had only paid attention to what the theorizers of the Great Reset declared with impunity. In reality those who denounced this plan, which is currently underway, were called conspiracy theorists, ridiculed, or passed off as crazy, ostracized by mainstream information and criminalized, driven out of university professorships and the scientific community. Today we understand how far-sighted were the alarms that were raised, and how powerful is the organizational mechanism that has been put in place by our adversaries. In the name of freedom, we have become accustomed to seeing ourselves deprived of the right to speak and to think, and the effort to pathologize dissent in order to legitimize detention camps and to constrain movement based on the health passport is already taking place. 

Cognitive dissonance

Faced with reality, however, it is difficult to understand the reason for which the entire world population has allowed itself to be convinced of the existence of a pandemic virus that has yet to be isolated and that it has supinely accepted limitations to personal freedom that at other times would have led to revolution and barricades in the streets. Even more incomprehensible is not so much the absence of a true and proper social and political reaction, but the inability to see reality in all of its crude evidence. But this is due, as we know, to the scientific action of manipulation of the masses that inevitably led to the phenomenon that social psychology calls “cognitive dissonance,” that is, the tension or discomfort we feel in the face of two opposing and incompatible ideas. The psychologist and sociologist Leon Festinger has demonstrated that this discomfort leads us to elaborate these convictions in three ways, in order to reduce the psychological incongruence that dissonance determines: changing one’s attitude, changing the context, or changing one’s behavior. Ordinary people, unable to comprehend or even recognize any rationality in what the media obsessively says about COVID, accept the absurdity of an influenzal virus presented as being more devastating than ebola, because they do not want to accept that their political leaders are lying shamelessly, with the goal of obtaining the social, economic, moral and religious destruction of a world that someone has decided to cancel. They do not know how to accept that the lie can be passed off as truth, that doctors are not curing and indeed are killing their patients, that civil authorities are not intervening to stop crimes and blatant violations, that politicians are all obeying a faceless lobby, that Bergoglio wants to demolish the Church of Christ to replace it with an infernal Masonic parody. Thus, out of this desire to not accept the deception and thus to not want to take a position against it and against those who promote it, they take refuge in the convenient mainstream narrative, suspending judgment and letting others tell them what to think, even if it is irrational and contradictory. Billions of people have voluntarily made themselves slaves, sacrificial victims to the globalist Moloch, allowing themselves to be persuaded of the inevitability of such a surreal and absurd situation. Or better still: the absurdity of what we see and what is told us seems to give greater strength to the reasons of those who, after two hundred years of revolution in the name of a supposed liberty, accept tyranny as a normal fact and go up to the gallows with the resignation of those who are convinced, after all, that they are guilty in some way.

No less dismay is aroused by the behavior of those who, in contempt of any scientific evidence, think they can resolve this crisis by deploring the inefficiency in the distribution of vaccines, or remedy the damages of the lockdown by guaranteeing subsidies to companies and workers. In short, they would like to choose whether to be executed by hanging or the guillotine, without making any objections to the legitimacy of the sentence. And they immediately get upset as soon as anyone formulates objections, accusing them of conspiracy theories or denial, proclaiming that they are in favor of vaccines and giving attestations of loyalty to the dominant ideology. And they do not realize that precisely in allocating subsidies to companies damaged by the lockdown they legitimize the universal income theorized by the Great Reset and that is also strongly desired by the Vatican; they do not realize that there cannot be a vaccine for a mutant virus, and that the antigen that would guarantee immunity from a seasonal flu cannot exist as long as the virus has not been isolated rather than merely sequenced. They remind us of those who, in the Catholic sphere, deplore Bergoglio’s doctrinal and moral drifts, without understanding that they are in perfect coherence with the ideological foundations of the Council. Here too, as we see, rationality is canceled out in order to make room for “cognitive dissonance” and accept the absurd.

Man is not a robot

There is, however, an element that the conspirators have not taken into account: human weakness on the one hand, and the power of God on the other. Human weakness will make some of the accomplices in this conspiracy not be completely obedient to the orders they have been given, or they will think that they can gain personal advantage from the pseudo-pandemic by exposing cheating and corruption; some will think first of their own interest, others will impose the obligation of the vaccine on anyone, but they will have some scruples when it comes to vaccinating their own child or their elderly parent; some will fear that pandemic farce may somehow involve them in the scandal, and they will begin to confess and to talk; others will be used and then brutally cast aside, and this will arouse in them the desire for revenge and will lead them to reveal the background of the plan. A little bit at a time, this clay-footed colossus will collapse, inexorably, on its own lies and its own crimes. 

A salutary warning

On the other hand, there is the power of God. Some of us, at the beginning, believed that the pandemic was real, and, with a supernatural spirit, thought that it was in some way a divine punishment for the grave sins of individuals and nations: they called for acts of reparation and prayers to ask God for the end of the plague. In the face of the evidence that there is no pandemic and that the deaths were deliberately caused to exaggerate the effects on the population, we must consider COVID as a scourge, not in itself, but for all that it has revealed: the plan of Satan for the establishment of the New World Order, which is meant to lead to the reign of the Antichrist. The Lord shows us, with the severity of a father, that He still wants to admonish His children and misled humanity about the consequences of sin. He shows us what world awaits us if we will not know how to convert, abandoning the way of perdition and returning to Him, to obedience to His holy Law, and to the life of grace. 

The response of Catholics

But in order for the nations to return to God, their members must already belong to Him. In order for Christ to be King of the nations, He must first reign in our souls, our families, and our communities, and He must reign above all in the Holy Church, over His Ministers, over the Pope and over the bishops. As long as the living and true God is outraged by being placed alongside idols and demons, we cannot hope that Divine Mercy will put an end to this scourge and defeat the enemy.

May this period of preparation for Holy Easter be a time of holy purpose for all of us: in penance, fasting, and sacrifice we must come to the foot of the Cross and contemplate in the Passion of Our Savior his act of victory over the Evil One. By having the Redeemer crucified on the wood of the Cross, Satan marked his own defeat, which still must be made definitive at the end of time but is most certain and inexorable. 

Let us return to God! Let us return to the Faith, pure and entire, without compromises with the mentality of the world. Let us return to Christian morality, to holiness of life, and to purity of customs. The number of the righteous will restrain the right hand of the Almighty and permit the Church to face the Calvary of her final persecution with the same dignity with which Her Head preceded her, because the Cross is the royal road that leads to the glory of the Resurrection. The broad and comfortable way is the one we see today, and unfortunately we know very well where it leads. May the powerful protection of the Most Holy Virgin, Our Lady and Queen, assist us in these epochal moments: may she be our general in this spiritual combat, along with Saint Michael the Archangel and the entire celestial court.

In Annuntiatione Beatae Mariae Virginis

Corona Virus In-Flight

So you are concerned about flying with the corona virus purportedly in the air? If John Rappoport is right in his hypothesis that polluted air could be a cause of epidemic illness, you certainly have reasons to be concerned. Referring to a Yale study he states that the mixture of toxic elements with unknown synergistic effects in our sea-level air is unprecedented in human history, never mind the one on board aircraft. And it is well known that bad air quality brings on all kinds of lung infections including pneumonia, the illness attributed to the coronavirus, if there indeed is such a virus. It is less well known that aircraft are ideal breeding grounds for all sort of respiratory illness due to the lack of in-flight air. Vigorous recycling of at least 53 % at lengthy intervals assures it. It saves on fuel consumption thus increasing shareholders profit. Who cares that it increases the potential of spreading all sorts of illnesses through aircraft ventilation systems including the coronavirus bug, if it indeed exist.

The cambodiacapital.com thinks so, stipulating in February 2020 that polluted air could indeed be an important cause of the “Wuhan pneumonia” a.k.a. corona virus. Or it could be carried on particulate pollutants thriving on Earth as in heaven due to commercial aircraft air quantity and quality as provided by the airlines.

It is a well-known fact that because of the effects of high altitude on humans aircraft must be pressurized and supplied with artificial oxygen, air ventilation- and filtration systems. These systems usually are set to operate at between 6000–8000 feet above sea level. Until the early 80s, they supplied a 100% fresh air circulation to all cabins at about three minute intervals by pumping outside air through engine compressors into the aircraft and back outside through exhaust valves.

To save fuel engineers then designed an air-intake system where up to 53% of cabin air passes through filters to blend with fresh outside air before it’s re-injected into the cabins. On most aircraft the filters used to purify the air purportedly remove 90 to 95% of dust, bacteria, and viruses—but not gases and odors. They are also said to remove up to 99.99% of airborne contaminants 0.5 microns or larger. But many of those contaminants are said to be smaller than 0.5 microns. But how often these filters are changed to guarantee their proficiency is a mystery.

The amount of oxygen provided to passengers and cabin crew depends entirely on an airline’s generosity. One carrier instructed its Airbus pilots to select HIGH only if flight attendants reported to the flight deck in person complaining about difficulties breathing. In a nutshell, the 100% fresh cabin air circulated about every three minutes through aircraft manufactured before the 1980s was replaced by providing half-fresh and half-recycled air every six or seven minutes in newer aircraft. Air ventilation in itself corresponds to class compartments. The less air circulation the greater the reduction of oxygen to passengers and cabin crew, though they now have breathing stations in the galley areas. Cabin airflow going from front to back, first class passengers thus receive first class air its quality diminishing as it finds its way to the back. Pilots also lower air flow after meal service completion to increase it again roughly one hour before landing to assure economy class passenger and cabin crew are able to walk rather than crawl of board.

The Joint European Aviation Authority mandates that European carriers must provide each crewmember with no less than 10 cubic feet per minute (cfm) to enable them to perform their duties without “undue discomfort or fatigue.” The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on the other hand finds 7.5 cfm more than sufficient. That cockpits have completely separate ventilation systems administering 100% fresh air at much higher volume to the pilots than that delivered to the peons in the back is rarely known. Thus there is blatant discrimination o/b aircraft in regards to the air to breath. The United States Academy of Sciences National Research Council measured that on full Boeing 747s during domestic runs pilots inhaled the luxurious amount of at least 150 cfm of 100% fresh air from their private system, whilst First- and Business class passengers received between 30 to 50 cfm of recycled air and those working or lounging in the high-density economy sections got less than 7 cfm for their breathing enjoyment. And when calculating fresh air-intake combined with recycling, air circulation and human carbon dioxide addition in-flight it translated into less than 5 cfm per person for those traveling in the back. Viruses thrive under those conditions. Low oxygen tension enhances Hepatitis C virus (HCV) replication so why not that of the corona virus, if it indeed exists?

So, now you know. It’s not your constitution unduly acting up when you exit the aircraft with a pounding headache and are pooped and ailing for days and weeks afterwards in particular after a longer flight. Those ailments are invisible gifts graciously extended by your courteous North American airline. And you ought to count yourself blessed if exhaustion and fatigue is all you suffer. Cabin- and cockpit crews suffer much worse, but of that another day.

In Flight Organophosphates

Reporting on https://www.politico.com/news/2020/03/07/airplanes-unsafe-cabin-fumes-123362

Concerns have been raised by organisations representing pilots and cabin crew about the possible effects on aircrew health of oil/hydraulic fluid smoke/fume contamination incidents in pressurised aircraft. Specific concerns have been raised with respect to organophosphate compounds (OPs) in the cabin air environment and the perceived effects on health of long-term low- level exposure states Professor Michael Bagshaw, MB BCh MRCS FFOM DAvMed DFFP FRAeS, in his 2013 “Health Effects of Contaminants in Aircraft Cabin Air” summary report vs. 2.5. (asma.org). Always remember: What affects cabin crew affects you, the passenger!

The UK CAA Mandatory Occurrence Reporting (MOR) System in 2007 noted 116 fume event reports out of 1.3 million passenger and cargo flights, with fume events estimated to occur on 0.05% of flights overall (1 in 2000). Of the 20,000 UK professional pilot population, the UK CAA Medical Department in 2008 was aware of 21 pilots reporting medical symptoms associated with exposure to cabin air fumes, of whom 10 are long term unfit. There has been no reported increase in the number of such pilots known to the UK CAA Medical Department.

The Australian Parliament conducted a Senate Investigation in 1999 into air safety and cabin air quality. This followed concerns raised by crew members working for Ansett Airlines who reported feeling unwell due to unpleasant odours of engine oil inside BAe 146 aircraft. The Senate report concluded that the BAe 146 had a record of unpleasant odours in the cabin as well as occasional incidents of fumes from lubricating oil. Over a longer period, airline employees had reported a variety of adverse health effects.

In the USA similar problems were reported with early RB211-535C powered Boeing 757 aircraft in which overfilling with engine oil could lead to contamination of the environmental conditioning system (ECS). In the UK, incidents of smells in the cabin were reported on early B757s operated by British Airways. UK operators of the BAe 146 also experienced oil fume incidents.

Although the evidence suggests that oil fume events of initial concern stem from a design fault on two early series aircraft, which has now been rectified, occasional oil smells still occur (~1 in 2000 flights). Campaigners maintain that these are leading to health problems for aircraft occupants. They are also concerned that crew health is being affected by long term exposure to very small amounts of contaminants, which may be present in bleed air as a result of leaking engine oil seals in the absence of specific fume events.

In 2007 the Aerotoxic Association was founded by BAe 146 Training Captain John Hoyte at the British Houses of Parliament to raise public awareness about the ill health allegedly caused after exposure to airliner cabin air that he claimed had been contaminated to toxic levels by engine oil leaking into the bleed air system, which pressurizes all jet aircraft with the exception of the Boeing 787 (aerotoxic.org). Since then, the Association has provided guidance and advice to thousands of airline pilots, cabin crew and passengers suffering from Aerotoxic Syndrome.

The term describes acquired chronic ill health caused by exposure to toxic oil fumes present in the breathing air of most commercial jets. Unaware, thousands of people suffer every day without knowing about this health and safety hazard first identified by 3 scientists from France, Australia and the USA in 1999. It is known to affect the central nervous system and brain causing a range of acute symptoms and long-term ill health. And remember, now: What affects cabin crew affects passengers!

Press Release

June 2015

Press release

The Harvard School of Public Health has been commissioned by the Flight Attendants Medical Research Institute to study weather “Qigong” can improve the health of Flight Attendants who worked in a smoking environment more than 25 years ago…

Since Qigong is widely accepted to be a beneficial practice, what is the point of spending money on this study done by such a reputable institution?

Why not investigate the far more urgent lack of air and neurotoxic contaminants in the air aboard airplanes endangering the health and lives of all those who fly?

In response to Harvard’s ludicrous study, Nattanya H. Andersen, author of Broken Wings: A Flight Attendant’s Journey, has made available free of charge her meticulously researched chapters of the onboard Air Quality and Quantity, Aircraft as Illness Incubators and Psychiatric Illness in Pilots onto her website (here, on BrokenWings.ca).

Her efforts to improve the working and traveling conditions onboard aircraft by contacting the big players in the Aviation Industry and the Political Arena are also illustrated on her website.
