As if we didn’t already know, or at least expected, the Globe and Mail reports on an international body recognition that Diesel exhaust does cause cancer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer, a branch of the World Health Organization, held a meeting this week, in which they conclude that Diesel exhaust cause Cancer.
I wonder how that’s going to impact us engineers working on ships, especially those working under Worker’s Compensation / insurance boards schemes, or the likes. One more hazard to add to the list for Marine Engineering job description.
