ABSTRACT
The article highlights a study about impact of increased roadway pollution produced by diesel fuel in vehicles to health, conducted by Andrew Lucking and colleagues. Presented at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2007, researchers reveal that the pollution could lead to a cascade of conditions that could result in heart attack or stroke. The study shows that when a person is exposed to relatively high levels of diesel for a short time, the blood is more likely to clot.
