Car Airconditioning and Benzene !!!!!



Please do not turn on the Air Conditioning as soon as you enter your car....

Open the windows after you enter your car and then turn on the air-conditioning after a couple of minutes. Here's why: According to a research, the car dashboard, sofa, air freshener emit Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin (carcinogen - take time to observe the smell of heated plastic in your car). In addition to causing cancer, Benzene poisons your bones, causes anemia and reduces white blood cells. Prolonged exposure will cause Leukemia, increasing the risk of cancer. May also cause miscarriage.

The acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50 mg per sq. ft. A car parked indoors with windows closed will contain 400-800 mg of Benzene. If 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... Most people who get into the car (including me, atleast till i found this out), keeping windows closed will inevitably inhale, in quick succession excessive amounts of the toxin. Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidney and liver. What's worse, it is extremely difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.

So, please open the windows and door of your car - give time for interior to air out -dispel the deadly stuff - before you enter.

Thanks Pavan for calling this out to me and trigerring a thought to go dig deeper ....
