Yes the altitude we travel in planes does give us a higher dose of radiation than we normally get on the ground. I do know airline attendants who
have cancer in their 50s right now, but it's nearly impossible to say for sure it's from air travel conclusively.
Now with the risk of high doses of radiation from air travel.... think about the moon landing astroNOTs.... they are all doing just fine in their 70s
and 80s. The supposed doses of radiation they should have got would have killed them long ago. All they did was orbit the Earth, if they went out
further they wouldn't still be kicking and lying about the moon well into their 70s.
