Just For Sharing - Car Aircon

A friend forwarded this to me and I find it useful to share the information to you. 

This is specially relevant for our aircon cars here in RP, where we
always keep all the windows closed and the temperature goes
up to more than 100o F. 

Please note and circulate... 
Do not turn on A/C immediately as soon as you enter the car!
Please open the windows after you enter your car and do not
turn ON the air-conditioning immediately. According to a
research done, the car dashboard, sofa, air freshener emits
Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin (carcinogen- take note of
the heated plastic smell in your car). 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

Acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50 mg per sq. ft.
A car parked indoors with the windows closed will contain
400-800 mg of Benzene. If parked outdoors under the sun at a
temperature above 60 degrees F, the Benzene 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 toxins.

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 very difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.
