Columnists say interior car pollutants are toxic

"The interior of your car may seem like a safe haven from air pollution, but it may actually be quite the opposite"...

A recent question submitted by a reader to the EarthTalk column in The Ridgefield Press asked: Can you discuss pollutants in car interior materials, and also pollution inside cars originating from gasoline and diesel exhausts outside the car?

Columnists Roddy Scheer and Doug Moss replied, stating that pollutants found inside of a car can be toxic.

"The interior of your car may seem like a safe haven from air pollution, but it may actually be quite the opposite. Chemicals emanating from the steering wheel, dashboard, armrests and seats mix with the airborne pollution being generated under the hood to form a witch’s brew of toxins for those riding inside," the column stated.

The column also stated that some of the worst offenders are:

  • Airborne bromine,
  • Chlorine,
  • Lead, and
  • Other heavy metals
