Health Effects of Exposure to Diesel gton, DC: The National Academies Press. doi: Although most attention regarding diesel exhaust has focused on cancer, emerging data on acute effects are of potential concern. These include enhanced allergic responses, exacerbation of asthma, and childhood illness. Additional studies are needed to understand mechanism, dosere- sponse relationships, and sensitivity.

Monitoring Diesel Exhaust in the Workplace 1 Introduction a. Health effects Over a million U.S. workers (e.g., trucking, mining, railroad, construction, agriculture) are occupationally exposed to diesel exhaust [NIOSH ]. The widespread use of diesel-powered equipment is a recognized health concern. Exposure to diesel exhaust isFile Size: KB. Workers exposed to diesel exhaust face the risk of health effects ranging from irritation of the eyes and nose, headaches and nausea, to respiratory disease and lung cancer. Diesel exhaust can cause health problems and can most likely increase the risk of lung cancer (and possibly other cancers). Since most people’s exposure is from exhaust near highways and other roads, government regulations may be as important as personal choices in limiting exposure to potentially harmful chemicals in diesel exhaust.   The exhaust fumes from automobiles, boats and gas or diesel powered generators and tools contain a dangerous gas called carbon monoxide. Since prolonged exposure to this gas can result in serious illness or even death, it is important to be able to .

Diesel Exhaust Diesel exhaust has been linked to adverse health effects, including exacerbation of asthma symptoms and lung cancer. Increasingly more stringent emissions standards are reducing the concentrations of particulate matter and nitrogen oxides in diesel engine exhaust.   BACKGROUND: Short-term controlled exposure to diesel exhaust (DE) in chamber studies have shown mixed results on lung and systemic effects. There is a paucity of studies on well-characterized real-life DE exposure in humans. In the present study, 29 healthy volunteers were exposed to DE while sitting as passengers inCited by: 2.
