When turning on the engine in the car without turning on the A/C we put our and the passenger’s health in danger.
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 can 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 happens when the car is left outside and the windows are closed it can accumulate 2000-4000 mg of benzene which is 40 times more than the permitted level.
When people sit in the car with closed windows, they inhale benzene without being aware of the toxin affecting the kidneys, the liver, and the bone tissue.
It also takes a lot of time and effort for the organism to eliminate it. The windows should be open before turning on the A/C.
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.
