Default Car air-conditioning poisoning!!!!

I doubt if any of this is true. But I'll share it as a public service to give someone the opportunity to share a link showing it's a hoax or not.

I park in the garage at night and I'm in a parking garage when at work, so my car does not heat up that often. Most new cars have a tempature selection so that you do not turn on the air or the heat. If the car is real hot seems like common sense to me to roll down the windows to let out the heat so you can cool down faster.

Car air-conditioning poisoning!!!!

Food for thought unless you have an all leather / walnut interior.!!


My car book says to roll down the windows to let out all the hot air before turning on A/C.


Car Airconditioning - No wonder more folks are dying from cancer than ever before. We wonder where this stuff comes from but here is an example that explains a lot of the cancer causing incidents.

Many people are in their cars first thing in the morning and the last thing at night, 7 days a week.

As I read this, it makes me feel guilty and ill.
Please pass this on to as many people as possible.
Guess itís not too late to make some changes

Please do NOT turn on A/C as soon as you enter the car.

Open the windows after you enter your car and then turn ON the AC after a couple of minutes.

Here's why: According to research, the car dashboard, seats, air freshener emit Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin (carcinogen - take time to observe the smell of heated plastic in your car).

In addition to causing cancer, Benzene poisons your bones, causes anemia and reduces white blood cells. Prolonged exposure will cause Leukemia, increasing the risk of cancer. Can also cause miscarriage.

Acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50 mg per sq. ft. A car parked indoors with 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.

People who get into the car, keeping windows closed will inevitably inhale, in quick succession, excessive amounts of the toxin.

Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidney and liver. What's worse, it is extremely difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.

So friends, please open the windows and door of your car - give time for interior to air out -dispel the deadly stuff - before you enter.
Scott me up Beamy.
