Car Aircon


When we sit in our car and turn on the engine, we often, without thinking, turn on the A/C. Every time we do this, we put our health, and the health of the people around us, in danger.

This occurs because when we leave our car outside, we always close the windows. But even when we leave the car in a shade, it can accumulate 400-800 mg of benzene.

If you park the car in the sun, in a temperature higher than 16 degrees Celsius, the level of benzene can reach 2000-4000 mg, which is 40 times more than the permitted level.

By sitting in a car that had closed windows, people inhale the benzene, not knowing that this toxin affects the kidneys, the liver and the bone tissue. Furthermore, it takes a lot of time and effort for our organisms to eliminate it.

The cars’ manuals state that we should open the car’s windows before turning on the A/C, but they don’t explain why, except that it is good for the performance of the car.
