In addition to causing cancer, it poisons your bones, causes anemia, and reduces white blood cells. Prolonged exposure will cause leukemia, increasing the risk of cancer. It may also cause miscarriage. Acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50 mg per square foot. A car parked indoors with the doors closed will contain 400 ? 800 mg of Benzene. If parked outdoors under the sun at a temperature above 15 degrees C. the Benzene level goes up to 2000 ? 4000 mg, 40 times the acceptable level.
