There are certain things which we do that gradually put our lives in danger.  Funny enough, a lot are not aware of some of these things; they are totally ignorant of it. This post is more of a corrective post for everybody. Always try as much as you can to keep the safe practices. It is not too late to make some changes.A lot of people die of cancer  all around the globe. Some of the exposure to cancer came from the car.

Roll down the windows to let out all the hot air before turning on air-conditioner (A/C). 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.

This is the reason for the above:

Materials used to manufacture certain car dashboards, door panels, seats, and other interior components can emit benzene.
According to research, the car dashboard, seats, air freshener emit Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin (carcinogen). 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 and also cause miscarriage. in addition to this, Benzene targets liver, kidney, lung, heart and the brain and can cause DNA strand breaks, chromosomal damage, etc.

In conclusion, when you get into your parked hot car, don’t go straight to put on the A/C. First of all, roll down your windows to let out the hot air in the car. You can afterwards turn on your A/C after a couple of minutes.

We are sure you must have perceived the smell of heated plastics in your hot car; it’s not good for your health.
