Thanks to Gordona for this.
There are SO many EASY things we can/should do to promote our health and/or prevent unnecessary disease!
For instance, acceptable benzene level indoors is 50 mg per sq. ft.. A car parked indoors with windows closed usually contains 400-800 mg of benzene. If parked in the sun at temperatures above 60F/10C), the benzene level climbs to 2000-4000 mg — 40 times the acceptable level.
So, if the outdoor temperature is above 60F/10C, air out your car! If possible, leave your car door/s open for a few moments before entering, open the windows upon entering , and, if you are using it, only then turn on the A/C (which recycles the air mixture within a car) or heater. Studies show that the dashboard and trim, upholstery, and even many air “fresheners” emit benzene. Benzene causes anemia and reduces white blood cells. It is a toxin that affects kidneys and liver, and prolonged exposure may cause leukemia and other cancers, “poison bones”, and even cause miscarriage. Also, when it’s warm, upholstery and carpets emit more formaldehyde and stain preventing toxins. Since this mix is extremely difficult for our bodies to expel, just AIR OUT YOUR CAR!Uncategorized | Comment (0)
