A car's air conditioning vents.

SINCE IT'S SUMMER and finally getting hot like hell, just thought I'd share this public service announcement with y'all. My sister actually e-mailed me this last September, so sorry for the delay (Good ol' copy and pasting)...



Very interesting! My car's instruction manual says to roll down the windows to let out all the hot air before turning on the A/C. WHY?

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 it's not too late to make some changes.

Car A/C (Air Conditioning) MUST READ!!!

Please do NOT turn on the A/C as soon as you enter the car. Open the windows after you enter your car and then turn ON the A/C after a couple of minutes.

Here's why: According to research, the car's dashboard, seats, and 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. It can also cause miscarriage.

Acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50 milligrams per square feet. A car parked indoors with windows closed will contain 400-800 milligrams of Benzene.

If parked outdoors under the sun at a temperature above 60 degrees Fahrenheit, the Benzene level goes up to 2000-4000 milligrams, 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 the interior to air out and dispel the deadly stuff before you enter.

Thought: "When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others."

This is what says. It is not the air conditioning in the car but the Benzene-producing agents that cause cancer.
