    The given article is based on true facts!

    Please do not turn on A/C immediately as soon as you enter the car. Open the windows after you enter your car and turn ON the air-conditioning after a couple of minutes.

    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.

    You learn(sic) something new everyday! I didn't know Leukemia could increase the risk of cancer(all along I thought it was a type of cancer, bummer!) or that cars had "sofas".

    If one is to get rid of this carcinogen Benzene then I suggest ditching the vehicle completely seeing that you can only get rid of the airfreshener, you cannot get rid of the "sofas" or the dashboard and these are the ones that emit Benzene as per the sorry article which does not even tell us the who, when, where, why and how of this research. If we to just go with the heading then the words "true" and "facts" would require redifinition.

    Mwakilishi, good facts and arguments; but poor presentation. And then you make the subject matter worse than previously was.
