Risks of Car Air-conditioning -Very Important!!!!

 
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. 
 
   
Many people are in their cars first thing in the morning and the last thing at night, almost 7 days a week. 
 
   
Question: My car hand book says to roll down the windows to let out all the hot air before turning on A/C. Why is that? I have heard that it is very important to do that for health reasons! 
 
   
Answer: Car A/C (Air Conditioning) MUST READ!!! 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 dashboard, seats & even air freshener all emit Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin! (carcinogen - take time to observe the smell of the 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 and also may lead to miscarriage. Acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50 mg per sq/ft.

 
A car parked indoors with windows closed will contain 400-800 mg of Benzene. Parked outdoors in the sun at a temperature above 60 degrees F, the Benzene level goes up to 2000-4000 mg, that is more than    
40 times the acceptable level. People who get into their car, keeping all windows closed will inevitably inhale, in quick succession, excessive amounts of this 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 friends, please open the windows and doors of your car to give the interior time to air out - to dispel this deadly stuff - before you enter the vehicle! Please pass this on to as many people as possible.  

 

Guess it's not too late to make some changes.
