Heart Attacks From Diesel Fumes?

Saturday, 6. August 2011

Hi, Graham Hill here, thank you so much for visiting my blog, I hope you learn a lot and as a result end up driving a great car. In order to do so you can get all the information you need by buying my book, An Insider Guide To Car Finance or use me to finance your next car. Happy driving.

Edinburgh University has carried out a study into the effects of diesel fumes with some not so good results. They have found that after exposing volunteers to diesel fumes containing particles over a long period it led to blood clots forming in arteries that could lead to heart attacks or strokes. So whilst CO2 emissions are less with diesel the particulates increase. The report didn’t say whether the fumes that the volunteers were exposed to came from a car that was fitted with a particulate filter or not.

This of course would effect the results greatly. The team at the University said that they were investigating ways of filtering out the harmful particles. I hope they have consulted with car manufacturers as the problem may already have been solved! By Graham Hill
