Diesel Fumes Cause Cancer - World Health Organisation


The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is part of the World Health Organization (WHO), has classified diesel engine exhaust as carcinogenic to humans (Group 1), based on sufficient evidence that exposure is associated with an increased risk for lung cancer.
So when walking, cycling, playing, engaging in sport, avoid proximity to busy roads or other sources of diesel emissions.
