Aerotoxicity

Fairly obviously you're going to feel ill if the cabin fills with smoke. What we're talking about here is the possibility of an insidious effect from long term exposure to conditioned air. I flew for 35 years, long haul and short and so far I'm OK and so are all of my peers - maybe we've been lucky.
Whilst not dismissing the idea, I did feel very dubious when I saw that it was a well known ex BA guy who was making a lot of noise about this. Are we to expect class actions and lawyers drumming up support to sue the airlines for mega bucks?
