Do not, I repeat, DO NOT turn A/C right after you enter the car. Slide down the windows, and wait couple of minutes before you turn on the A/C.
According to a research, A/C ducts, car’s dashboard, the seats…. in fact all of the plastic objects in your car emit Benzane, a Cancer-casing toxin.
What do studies prove?
Cancer Research states:
“Researchers use 2 main types of studies to try to determine if a substance causes cancer.
- Studies in people: One type of study looks at cancer rates in different groups of people. Such a study might compare the cancer rate in a group exposed to a substance to the cancer rate in a group not exposed to it, or compare it to the cancer rate in the general population. But sometimes it can be hard to know what the results of these studies mean, because many other factors might affect the results.
- Lab studies: In studies done in the lab, animals are exposed to a substance (often in very large doses) to see if it causes tumors or other health problems. Researchers might also expose normal human cells in a lab dish to the substance to see if it causes the types of changes that are seen in cancer cells. It’s not always clear if the results from these types of studies will apply to humans, but lab studies are a good way to find out if a substance might possibly cause cancer.
Often neither type of study provides conclusive evidence on its own, so researchers usually look at both human and lab-based studies when trying to figure out if something causes cancer.”
Most of us turn on the A/C even without thinking…
Because whenever we leave the car outside, we close the windows. And whenever we leave it in the shade, it acquires 400-800mg of benzene.
And worse case scenario, when you park the car outside on a hot sunny day, the benzene level can increase to 2000-4000mg and that is 40x more than the permitted level!
When you inhale benzene it affects your liver, kidneys and bone tissue. And your body needs a lot of effort to eliminate it.
Even the cars’ manuals say that we should open the car’s windows before turning on the A/C, it is strange why they don’t tell you why…
So next time you sit in your car and you don’t notice any smell of heated plastic, open the windows for couple of minutes and then turn on the A/C.
You must start practicing this so that you can protect yourself and everyone around you from deadly toxins. The consequences may be fatal.
