Diesel fumes account for an alarming proportion of lung cancers, and the American Cancer Society has determined that diesel fumes are a known carcinogen to humans. Diesel exhaust and vapors are found in many areas, and everyone is exposed to them to a certain extent. But if railroad and diesel industry leaders do not follow the regulations regarding exhaust exposure, they may be liable for damages.
