Benzene in cars?


This is more of an urban myth than a legend but did anyone here get the email about how there is benzene in car seats, air fresheners and the dashboards of cars that release poisonous gas and so the windows should always be opened?
Maybe we should start a separate section for idiot emails going around.

That is so crazy. There are so many things that people circulate as truth especially on the internet. Benzene is used to make plastics and resins sometimes, although substitutes are being used more and more, but I don't think it is something we have to worry about in the car.
