Life is short: Many things are possible in life. Haven't heard of anyone having automobile anaphylaxis. Life is short, so we take our chances or miss out on lots of things. If ethylene glycol is a worry, consider an open-top car (for ventilation) or keep windows down (may need to live where it rarely rains)... and consider air-cooled (classic VW-Porsche) or all-electric to avoid ethylene glycol liquid coolant.
