Air out your car before turning on Aircon

Open the windows after you enter your car In brief, the
above article says: According to research done by a U.C.,
the car dashboard, sofa, air freshener will emit Benzene,
acancer causing toxin (carcinogen). In addition to causing
cancer, it poisons your bones, causes anemia, and reduces
white blood cells. Prolonged exposure will cause Leukemia,
increasing the risk of cancer. May also cause miscarriage.
Acceptable Benezene level indoors is 50 mg per sq. ft. A car
parked indoors with the windows closed will contain 400-800
mg of Benezene. If parked outdoors under the sun at a
temperature above 60 degrees F, the Benezene level goes up
to 2000-4000 mg, 40 times the acceptable level The people
inside the car will inevitably inhale an excess amount of
the toxin.

It is recommended that you open the windows and door to
give time for the interior to air out before you enter.
Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidney and liver, and
is difficult for your body to expel.
