You spend quite a lot of time inside your car.

The toxic air inside your cabin can greatly affect your respiratory system. Children, will obviously be at much higher risk of suffering from the harmful effects of air pollution inside your car, in some cases, they may become vulnerable to DNA damage because of in-car air pollution.

In most cars you will always fine a sort of characteristic smell. What you are smelling are volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can cause eye, nose and throat irritation, shortness of breath, headaches, fatigue, nausea, dizziness and skin problems. Higher concentrations may cause irritation of the lungs, as well as damage to the liver, kidney, or central nervous system. Your car cabin may have a mix of more than 100 chemicals such as poisonous benzene or formaldehyde.

VOCs are one of the indoor air pollutants that causes a wide variety of health problems. You can find them in the car foam in the seats, carpets, dashboard, or glue used in the car to keep the things in the right place.
Particles released from the car brakes and aromatic hydrocarbons from interior components can lead to different health problems. Smells of cigarette smoke and other sources also lead to in-car air pollution.

Some of the common sources of air pollution in your car are:

Carbon dioxide
Exhaust fumes of car
Dust, mold, pollen, viruses and bacteria
Odors
Pet dander
Cigarette smoke


Your car takes in emissions from the surroundings and recirculate them in the cabin. In fact, 50% of pollutants inside your car comes from the vehicles that are immediately ahead of you. That and many other factors makes the air quality inside your car 5 times worse than in your home or office.

Levels of some air pollutants and toxic compounds are almost ten times higher inside the vehicles. Air vents and other openings in the cabin are an easy way for the pollutants to enter your car.

According to the Atmospheric Environment, air pollutants are higher at traffic intersections. Stopping at red lights increases your exposure to pollution, traffic signals have approximately 29 times higher concentration of particulate matter than open roads. Passing through intersections accounts for 25% of your total exposure because drivers tend to accelerate and decelerate vehicles.
