Exposure to diesel exhaust can lead to serious health conditions like asthma and respiratory illnesses and can worsen existing heart and lung disease, especially in children and the elderly. These conditions can result in increased numbers of emergency room visits, hospital admissions, absences from work and school, and premature deaths. Emissions from diesel engines contribute to the production of ground-level ozone which damages crops, trees and other vegetation. Also produced is acid rain which affects soil, lakes and streams and enters the human food chain via water, produce, meat and fish. The negative impact is heavy.
We should go with cleaner energy approach and create healthy environment.
