An American company survey found dangerous chemical elements in cars.
Many say the salons of cheaper cars smell disgusting. True, once you open the window this smell disappears, but that does not mean that the driver and the passengers are not in danger. The reason is that for the production of new cars, a number of chemical elements are being used that accumulate and fall into the body of the riders.
Research on the US HealthyStuff internet portal explores more than 800 cars and scores the "safest" and "most poisonous" cars. Scientists have checked the machines for the presence of bromine, chromium and other heavy metals, as well as their concentration. In particular, the steering wheel, the glovebox, the dashboard, the gear lever, the seats and the doors, the places the driver and the passengers most often touch, are studied.
The first and third place in the survey are Honda models, and the fifth and sixth of Acura, which is the Japanese subdivision of the Japanese manufacturer. Civic and CR-Z have been announced for "safest cars" thanks to Honda's decision to abandon the use of polychlorinil (PVC) in the passenger compartment. Serious criticism is borne by the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, which has found an increased concentration of bromine, and Nissan Versa, which is compared by researchers with a pool full of chlorine.
After the study, scientists give advice on how to avoid maximum contact with poisonous materials in the vehicle. Whenever possible, the compartment should be ventilated before traveling, but it also keeps it closed for longer exposure to sunlight.
