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.
