Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A study published in the journal Neurology found that high altitudes may increase the risk of brain lesions. Researchers reported that pilots who fly at high altitudes for extended periods of time are more likely to have brain lesions than non-pilots. The team performed MRI brain scans on 102 U-2 United States Air Force pilots and 91 non-pilots between the ages of 26 and 50. During the scans, the scientists measured the amount of white...
