Please do not turn on A/C as soon as you enter the car. Open the windows after you enter your car, and then turn on the AC after a couple of minutes.
Here’s why: According to research, the car’s dashboard, seats, a/c ducts, in fact, all of the plastic objects in your vehicle, emit Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin. A big carcinogen… Prolonged exposure will cause Leukemia and increases the risk of some cancers.
Benzene is known to cause cancer, based on evidence from studies in both people and laboratory animals. The link between benzene and cancer has largely focused on leukemia and other cancers of blood cells.
Rates of leukemia, particularly acute myeloid leukemia (AML), have been found to be higher in studies of workers exposed to high levels of benzene, such as those in the chemical, shoemaking, and oil refining industries.
So the hard part here is that most of us turn on the A/C even without thinking.
This is because whenever we leave our cars outside, we close the windows. Whenever we leave it in the shade, it accumulates 400-800 mg of benzene.
When your car is parked in the sun and the temperature gets quite a bit higher, the level of benzene can increase to 2000-4000 mg and that is a staggering 40 times more than the permitted level.
When you sit in the car with closed windows, you inhale the benzene when in fact it affects your liver, bone tissue and kidneys. Our organism needs a lot of time so that it can eliminate it.
The cars’ manuals say that we should open the car’s windows before turning on the A/C, but they don’t tell you why.
Before it starts to cool the air, the air conditioner ejects all the heated air out, and the benzene with it. It’s a toxin that causes cancer.
So, when you sit in the car and you don’t notice any smell of heated plastic, open the windows for several minutes and then turn on the A/C. Leave the windows open for several minutes more when you turn on the car.
You must start practicing this so that you can protect yourself and everyone around you from toxins. The consequences can be fatal.
