According to a University of California study, ozone levels inside the cabins of some commercial aircraft exceed federal limits, increasing the chance of health problems. While ozone is a good thing when it's blocking the UV rays that cause skin cancer, it's not something you want to be inhaling during your seven hour flight to Dusseldorf. Exposure to in-cabin ozone is linked to a variety of not-so-cool health symptoms including breathing discomfort, headache, and respiratory irritation. Chronic exposure and physical activity (think flight attendants) can magnify the impact.
