Flying When PregnantI recall a fertility doctor telling his patients not to fly when they were pregnant.
I believe this was because he felt they were exposed to a certain amount of radiation. However, there could be other reasons not to fly. If you work as a flight attendant or if you spend a lot of time flying, you should read the link below.
From the article written by Dr. Mercola:
"There is clearly something hazardous about flying regularly. I am convinced that for whatever reason flying is not one of the healthiest things to do on a regular basis. If you have to fly regularly in your job and you have the opportunity to switch positions I would encourage you to do that for health reasons. I am sure as time goes on the specific reasons that chronic flying is detrimental to your health will materialize. The simple and easy ones that I can think of are regular disruptions of your sensitive pituitary hypothalamic axis due to shifting time zones. Melatonin levels are clearly affected. Another possibility is exposure to radiation at 35,000 feet that we do not receive at ground level. Lastly there is the issue of breathing recycled air that may be contaminated with air borne infectious agents from some sick passengers."
