the Diesel Exhaust Lung Cancer Study

http://www.oxfordjournals.org/our_journals/jnci/press_releases/silvermandjs034.pdf

This case–control study nested within a cohort of miners showed
a strong and consistent relation between quantitative exposure to diesel exhaust and increased risk of dying of lung cancer. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a statistically significant exposure–response relationship for diesel exposure and lung cancer based on quantitative estimates of historical diesel exposure with adjustment for smoking and other potential confounders.

Ok, this is very scary. Think about all of the people who are exposed to diesel exhaust on a daily basis. If you drive at all, you are exposed to diesel exhaust… I feel bad for those who are on the road all day and night. It is no wonder we have so many with lung cancer in America.
