Looking in the Wrong Place

To me, this whole issue is a beat-up by those wanting to get a golden handshakes on full pay and never need fly again, or to blame their own physical problems on something other than what they really know they did wrongly ( tobacco, alcohol and worse).

I have never experienced any toxic fumes onboard an aircraft in 50+ years as slf on a regular scheduled flight, RAAF, USN or as a general aviator.

I _have_ noticed the smell of fuel/oils around aircraft prior to entering. The parking areas are normally rife with spilt oils, and yes, they can be smelled. Maybe this is the area that should be concentrated on. Clean up the spills. Just look around any parking area airside.
