Do you know the danger of turning on the A/C after starting the engine?
Many people turn on the A/C when they sit in their car, even without thinking. But, did you know that this can be really dangerous for you and everyone around you?
This is because whenever we leave our cars outside, we close the windows. Whenever we leave it in the shade, it accumulates 400-800 mg of benzene.
When your car is parked in the sun, on a for example, temperature higher than 16 degrees Celsius, the level of benzene can increase to 2000-4000 mg and that is a staggering 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 liver, bone tissue and kidneys. Our organism needs a lot of time so that it can eliminate it.
The cars’ manuals say that we should open the car’s windows before turning on the A/C, but they don’t tell you why.
Before it starts to cool the air, the air conditioner ejects all the heated air out, and the benzene with it. It’s a toxin that causes cancer.
So, when you sit in the car and you don’t notice any 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.
