The world’s most prestigious cancer research group yesterday classified diesel engine exhaust as carcinogenic to humans and concluded that exposure is associated with increased risk of lung cancer.  The World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer announced it's findings at an international meeting in Europe yesterday, concluding that “that diesel exhaust is a cause of lung cancer, and also noted a positive association with an increased risk of bladder cancer."  The announcement has already led for calls for the United State's Environmental Protection Agency to follow suit.
