We often turn on the A/C when sitting in the car without even thinking about it. Every time you do this, you put your health and the health of the people around you in danger. Here’s why?
According to a research, your car’s dashboard, a/c ducts, seats, in fact, all of the plastic objects in your car emits Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin. When left in shade about 400-800 mg of Benzene is emitted and if left in the sun these levels rise up to 4000mg which is 40 times more than the permissible level.
Benzene is a Cancer causing toxin. The relation between Cancer and Benzene has largely focused on leukemia and other cancers of blood cells. This dangerous toxin affects and causes damage to the liver, kidneys and bone tissue. Our body requires a significant time to remove this inhaled benzene.
Before cooling the air, the air conditioner of the car ejects all the heated air out, and the emitted Benzene with it. It is to be noted that Benzene is a toxin that causes cancer and severely affects our liver.
What to do?
When you sit in the car and even if you don’t notice any smell of heated plastic, open all the windows for few minutes and then turn on the Air Conditioner. It is also suggested to leave the windows open for few more minutes when you turn on the car.
We strongly recommend you must start practicing this so that you can protect yourself and your family from toxins.
