couldn't find anything on this in
makes sense to me.........

Let it air out first…………
You may already know this...I didn't, sometimes I leave the window closed as I turn on the air....I thought the heat was just a feeling of discomfort, not danger!
Take into account!  
A car parked in the shade during the day with the windows closed may contain of 400-800 mg. of benzene. If parked outside, in the sun, at a temperature above 16 ° c, the level of benzene will rise to 2000-4000 mg. 40 times the acceptable level...Benzene is a toxin that affects the kidney and liver. What is worse, it is extremely difficult for the body to expel this toxic substance.                           
People that get into their car leaving the windows shut will inevitably breathe in excessive amounts of the toxin in quick succession.
 The driver’s manual indicates that before one turns on the air conditioning, one should open the window for a few minutes, but the manual does not specify “why",   only that it is for the vehicle’s "best performance".                       
The medical reason: 
According to a study, by turning the air on to cool the interior of the car with the windows closed, the cool air sends all the hot air from the hot plastic ducts which emit the benzene, a toxin which causes types of cancer, into the interior of the car, where we sit.  It takes time to notice the smell of the hot plastic.  This is the importance of opening the windows for a few minutes when one turns on the ignition while inside the car.  
Do not turn the air conditioner on immediately after entering the hot car. You must first open the windows and after a time switch on the air conditioner and keep windows open for a few minutes.  
In addition to causing cancer, benzene poisons affect your bones, causes anemia and reduces white blood cells. Prolonged exposure may also cause leukemia, increasing the risk of cancer.
So friends, please enter in the car and leave the windows open to allow time for the indoor air to be expelled along with the deadly toxin.
