Perhaps many of us will turn on the air conditioning immediately as we stepped into the closed car. Based on the studies conducted, dashboard, sofa, air fragrance produces Benzene, a cancer-causing toxin (cacinogen– it can be identified by the smell of heat resulting from the plastic material in the car). In addition to causing cancer, it also acts as a poison for the bones, causes anemia and reduces white blood cells.
This action if allowed to persist will cause Leukemia, increasing the risk of cancer as well as the cause of baldness. Benzene exposure rate is 50 mg per square foot. Whereas, if your car is exposed to direct sunlight, Benzene levels could rise up to 2000-4000 mg, 40 times the acceptable levels.
You are advised to open windows and aircond of car before you get into the car to free this Benzene. Make sure your family and friends know about this.
