Every time you sit in your car and turn on the engine, you are putting your health and the health of those with you in danger. This is how…
When you leave the car outside, you always close the windows. But even if you leave it in a nice shade, it can accumulate 400-800 mg of benzene.
If you park the car in the sun, at a temperature higher than 16 degrees Celsius, the level of benzene can reach 2000-4000 mg, which is 40 times more than the permitted level.
By sitting in a car that had closed windows, people inhale the benzene, not knowing that this toxin affects the kidneys, the liver, and the bone tissue. Furthermore, it takes a lot of time and effort for our organisms to eliminate it.
The cars’ manuals state that we should open the car’s windows before turning on the A/C, but they don’t explain why except that it is good for the performance of the car.
The results of the research show that before it starts to cool the air, the air conditioner ejects all the heated air out, and with it – the benzene, a toxin that causes cancer.
Therefore, when you sit in your car, even if you don’t notice any smell of heated plastic, open the windows for a few minutes and then turn on the A/C. And when you turn on the car, leave the windows open for a few more minutes.
Continue practicing this habit while you are in your car in order to protect your organism from toxins because the consequences can be extremely tragic.
