Do You Know The Danger Of Turning On The A/C After Starting The Engine?

Did you know that it’s not recommended to turn on the A/C right away when you enter the car? You need to open the windows first and after a few minutes you can turn on the A/C.

Research shows that all of the plastic objects in the car : the car’s dashboard, seats, A/C ducts etc. emit a very harmful toxin Benzene that can cause cancer.

Prolonged exposure increases the risk of getting some types of cancers and can also cause leukemia.

This toxic substance Benzene was used in various studies for laboratory animals and people. Based on the evidence from the studies benzene causes cancer.

Workers exposed to high levels of benzene, especially those working in the chemical, shoemaking, and oil refining industries, showed higher rates of risk for leukemia , particularly acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

Medical explanation:

Before it starts to cool the air, the air conditioner ejects all the heated air out, and the benzene with it. As we already said, it is  a very dangerous toxin.

So, right after you enter the car and you notice a 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.

Whenever we leave our cars outside, we close the windows. However, when we leave the car in the shade, it accumulates 400-800 mg of benzene.

When it is parked in the sun the temperature in the car gets quite high , the level of benzene can increase to 2000-4000 mg and that is 40 times more than the permitted level.

When you sit in the car with closed windows, you inhale the benzene when in fact it affects your kidneys, liver and bone tissue and kidneys. Our organism needs a lot of time to eliminate it.

According to car’s manuals we should open the car’s windows before turning on the A/C, but they don’t tell you why.

We hope that this article will open your eyes and make you more aware in the future.
