Ladies and gentlemen, how are you today?! Before we start, I would like to ask you a simple question – do you know the danger of turning on the A/C after starting the engine? If NO, then please read on!
We all know that many people around the world turn on the A/C when they sit in their car, without thinking about the consequences. But, did you know that this can be really dangerous for you and everyone around you? Take a look at the article below and find out more about this.
The MILLION-DOLLAR question – HOW THIS WORKS?!
Whenever we leave our cars outside, we close the windows, right?! So, according to the experts, if we leave it in the shade, it accumulates 400-800 mg of benzene. But, 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. The experts WARN that 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 bodies need a lot of time to eliminate that poison.
You’ll be “surprised” when we tell you that even 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.
Here’s what you need to know: 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, ladies and gentlemen, when you sit in the car and you don’t notice any smell of heated plastic, open the windows for 3 minutes and then turn on the A/C. Leave the windows open for several minutes more when you turn on the car. This “habit” will help you protect yourself and everyone around you. Thank you for your time and don’t forget to share.
