As we get ready to begin the holiday weekend where alot of us will be in our cars with our families, there is something you should consider: Most Cars Contain High Levels of Cancer Causing Benzene!!!
Some helpful tips...
Please do NOT turn on A/C as soon as you enter the car!!!
- Open the windows after you enter your car and turn ON the AC after a
couple of minutes.
- Here's why: According to 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. Can also cause miscarriage.
- Acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50mg 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.
- People who get into the car, 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 friends, please open the windows and door of your car - give time for
interior to air out -dispel the deadly stuff - before you enter.
