What are you breathing?

Have you ever looked to the sky and wondered why a particular jet had a white mist leaving a trail? As a kid i used to think it was the coolest thing. Turns out it could have a greater effect on us. In the scientific community they are known as “contrails” but you might be more familiar with the name “chem trails”. According to scientist there are many reasons that these planes are needed. Some can include seeding of clouds to induce rain or trying to deter global warming. What do these effects have on humans and animals though? a big one if you ask me. There has been time when i ask myself, “how in the hell did i get sick!!”. the only cause i could think of was when i looked to the sky and saw a chem trail on a clear day. It is a fact that certain heavy metals and chemicals can throw off one’s immune system. That was the case with me. On the regular, we are exposed to more than 100,000 chemicals and there is a chance that they become synergistic. That means that these chemicals have a chance to work together to increase the effectiveness of it and potency of the chemical. Among these chemicals, most have never been tested to see if they are safe for humans to come in contact with. Personally i believe that Coronary heart disease is linked to chem trails. The reason why is they are very prevalent in North America  and that is now the leading cause of death in the U.S. To go along with that Asthma and upper respiratory illness is very common. Anywhere from 100-150 million people suffer from asthma world wide. in the U.S alone, 16.4 million adults have asthma along with 7 million children. A total of 37 million Americans are affected. My question to you, is chem trials the cause of your asthma?

  1. I don’t want to sound stupid, but I honestly had no idea that those trails behind jets had such a bad affect on our atmosphere, let alone our health. I didn’t know the trail consisted of harmful chemicals that can cause major diseases. I now know that this is a big problem and I think something needs to be done about it.


  2. It is inane to think about the amount of chemicals were are in contact with in are daily lives, from the air we breath, to what we eat, and even to the products that we use every day. I lot of these chemicals we are unaware of the effect that they have on humans and many have never been tested. It would be nice to know what the chemicals in our daily life do to us, but there are so many, it is hard to do.

  3. I never really thought about what planes were leaving behind in the air once they burned the fuel they used. I can see why it likely causes asthma and other respiratory diseases as well. Another big problem, especially in Cincinnati, is the amount of ozone formed specifically on hot, humid days. This is because of the large amount of vehicles on the roads which causes ozone to form in the troposphere do to an inversion of the air and it exacerbates asthma symptoms.

  4. Great topic! I really like how you started out with the question and connected your entire topic to something that, probably most if not all, kids at some point find themselves wondering about. I know that I wondered the same thing when I was little.
