Subject: Air safety and other problems with long flights...
We've been talking about air safety on the list, and this morning on The View, they were discussing air safety and other problems of taking long flights. The doctor that was on the show talked about the recycled air on planes and suggested that you take Vitamin C, a multiple vitamin, and Milk Thistle to remove toxins. He also talked about problems with the blood pooling in the legs on long flights, especially in cramped economy class. He suggested Ginkgo before and after the trip to increase circulation, plus getting up and moving around. He said it's rare, but some people have gotten blood clots. Scary.... For stomach problems, one of the things he suggested was acidophilus for the stomach bugs. He also advised disinfectant for phones, etc. I think the Vitamin C is always a good idea... people have talked about becoming sick after a long flight. My husband and I were both ill when we came back. However, I think that was partly because we lost a whole night of sleep, and we were running constantly, keeping late hours. Resistance was bound to be down.
