Benzene in car’s air conditioning (car A/C) MUST READ!!!
No wonder more people are dying from cancer than ever before. We wonder where this stuff comes from but here is an example that explains a lot of the cancer causing incidents. Please pass this on to as many people as possible. Guess its not too late to make some changes
Many people are in their cars first thing in the morning and the last thing at night, 7 days a week. It’s about the hazards of our car A/C (Air Conditioning). Please do NOT turn on A/C as soon as you enter the car!
First thing first, open the windows as soon as you enter your car. After a couple of minutes, turn ON the AC. That’s much better.
Here’s why: According to research, the car dashboard, seats and air freshener emit Benzene, a cancer-causing toxin (or carcinogen). Take time to observe the smell of heated plastic in your car, that’s it.
In addition to causing cancer, Benzene also poisons your bones, causes anemia and reduces white blood cells. Prolonged exposure will cause Leukemia, increasing the risk of cancer. It is believed to cause miscarriage, too.
Meanwhile, there’s an acceptable Benzene level indoors and that is 50mg per sq.ft. A car parked indoors with windows closed will contain 400-800 mg of Benzene. However, if an automobile is parked outdoors under the sun at a temperature above 60 degrees F, the Benzene level goes up to 2000-4000 mg, 40 times the acceptable level! Can you imagine that?!
People who get into their car, usually with closed windows, will inevitably inhale, in quick succession, excessive amounts of the toxin!
So friends, experts advice is to open the windows and door of your car as soon as you enter your vehicle – give time for interior to air out -dispel the deadly stuff – before you hit the A/C, alright?
