Did you know about this????

Hello there fellow bloggers…I got something from my email and I would like to share it with you! It got me interested with it and now I’m keen to let everybody knows what your car air conditioner could do to your health. It’s really nice to know that something like this could save a life and I appreciate the person who sent this letter to me for the reason not only myself I’m saving, also others…(including my family and friends). As we all know, we only have one LIFE that GOD gave us so we need to take care of it. How? By sending or sharing some information like this letter. More information and facts I’ve learned today and hopefully you do the same.

This is especially relevant for our car aircons, where we always keep all the windows closed and the temperature goes up to more than 100 degrees F.

Do not turn on A/C immediately as soon as you enter the car!

Please open the windows after you enter your car and do not turn ON the air-conditioning immediately.

According to a research done. The car dashboard, sofa, air freshener emits Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin (carcinogen-take note of the heated plastic Smell in your car).

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

Acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50 mg per sq.ft. A car parked indoors with the 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….& the people inside the car will inevitably inhale an excess amount of the toxins.

It is recommended that you open the windows and door to give time for the interior to air out before you enter.

Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidney and liver, and is very difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.

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

I did my part and so your turn....
