We always hear, there’s no such thing as a perfect crime, is there?
Criminals always leave behind clues and detectives & cops always pick up on those clues and find out who the criminals are – sooner or later.
That’s what we’ve always read or seen – and then at the end, the successful law enforcement officer goes on an endless monologue on how the crime was committed, in 4K HD quality!
But that’s not real life!
In real life, we face a murderous killer every single day, but choose to carry on, ignoring that killer as it goes about its job ruthlessly.
No one is spared – your loving spouse, your beautiful children, parents & grandparents, friends – everyone becomes a victim of this murderer.
And it isn’t petty crime either – you are literally being poisoned to death!
That Killer is your Car!
Almost all of us are very particular about the kind of food we eat – it should not be dirty or rotten.
Now, how would you feel you were served food laced with arsenic?
And yet… we sit in our cars every single day and head out to work, shop or just drive around without realising that our car is slowly poisoning us!
Now, there are two sides to this story – none of them are good…
The first side contains a list of outdoor pollutants, chemicals and toxins that enter the car each time we open the door, lower the window or use our blowers/air conditioners.
The other contains a list of pollutants, chemicals and toxins that come from various parts of the car’s interior trim, gadgets, plastic parts, rubber bits, and more.
But how aware are we?
This, everyone knows and reads about every single day – the air around us is polluted by vehicles, industries, people, etc.
What we don’t know is what those chemicals and pollutants are – most people think its PM2.5, and it is, but that isn’t all.
PM2.5 accounts for just 25% of all the pollutants present in the air we breathe – the majority are in the form of Volatile Organic Compounds or VOCs.
The mention of outdoor VOCs, in popular media, is limited to NOx, Sulphur Dioxide and, in some cases, Ozone.
(Read about how Air Puriifers with Ionizers create Ozone)
However, there are over 200-different kinds of chemicals and toxins in the air, here are some of those bad boys:
- Asphalt Fumes
- Body Odours
- Carbon Monoxide
- Coal Smoke
- Ethyl Bromide
- Kitchen Odours
- Methyl Chloride
- Varnish Fumes
- Tobacco Smoke
- And more (see the complete list here)
A lot of these elements are serious, hyper-killers, which with enough exposure can lead to cancer, heart disease; liver or kidney failure, and, possibly, death.
You think that list’s dangerous, wait till you see what comes from inside the car!
Outdoor Pollutants inside your Car
To begin with, almost every single thing you see on the list above (including the link) are present inside the car as well.
Primarily because each time you open the door, crack the window or turn the air conditioner on, some amount of outside air comes in.
The moment all the doors and windows are shut, those pollutants get trapped in – with your car’s insulation keeping them inside.
However, that’s not all -besides all these outside-pollutants that are lining up to get into your car, your car’s parts also release a whole bunch of harmful chemicals into the air.
That New Car Smell
Do you love the way a new car smells?
Well, you shouldn’t because that smell comes loaded with Benzene, Formaldehyde, Toulene, Xylene and a bunch of other chemicals and carcinogens.
- Your car’s seat releases Formaldehyde if its made of fabric
- Have leather seats? Yeah, your car’s leaking Xylene and Acetaldehyde
- Have a plastic dashboard? That’s Xylene, Toulene, Benzene and Formaldehyde that you’re breathing
- Rubber door linings and fitments also emit Xylene, Acetaldehyde and Styrene
- All those plastic parts, door handles, dashboard, instrument cluster – all come coated with varnishes and solvents to protect them from dust and give them a lustre – and all these add more Xylene, Formaldehyde, Acetaldehyde, Styrene and Toulene to your car’s air
Why are we limiting ourselves to just Benzene, Toulene, Xylene, Formaldehyde, etc. above? Because these are all Class 1 or 2 carcinogens – the worst of the worst that you could be breathing in.
We aren’t even naming the smaller carcinogens or killer chemicals that come through because the list is too long!
There is some good news though – all these new-car chemical killers only last for about 6-8 months, depending on how frequently you use that car.
They are, then, replaced with the exact same killers, but from outside-sources – because the air you are living in is, essentially, filled with these chemical killers.
Take action today and make sure you are protecting yourself and your loved ones from these chemicals and toxins.
It’s quite easy – Activated Coconut Charcoal removes all these chemicals and toxins, and over 200-others, so get yourself an air purifier that works 24×7, like Cair Air Purifiers, and keep your car’s air clean and safe.
