WHO : diesel exhausts cause lung cancer

According to the World Health Organization : ” the WHO  today classified  diesel  engine  exhaust  as carcinogenic  to  humans,  based  on  sufficient  evidence that exposure is associated with an increased risk for lung cancer.

This is a bad news for me as I recently changed for a diesel car and I am amazed at how much money I am saving. Of course, diesel is not this popular in other countries, and the latest WHO findings won’t change this.

So if you are looking for an efficient car that doesn’t cause climate change or cancer, go for an electric one, and charge it with solar PV panels.
