Burden of lung cancer attributable to occupational diesel engine exhaust exposure in Canada
Objective: To estimate the population attributable fraction (PAF) and number of incident and fatal lung cancers in Canada from occupational exposure to diesel engine exhaust (DEE). Methods: DEE exposure prevalence and level estimates were used with Canadian Census and Labour Force Survey data to model the exposed population across the risk exposure period (REP, 1961–2001). Relative risks of lung cancer were calculated based on a meta-regression selected from the literature. PAFs were calculated using Levin's equation and applied to the 2011 lung cancer statistics obtained from the Canadian...
Diesel Emissions and Lung Cancer
An Evaluation of Recent Epidemiological Evidence for Quantitative Risk Assessment This report contains the intensive review and analysis of the newest studies of mine and truck workers exposed to older diesel engine exhaust conducted by an Expert Panel appointed by the HEI Board of Directors. In its report, HEI's Diesel Epidemiology Panel concluded that the studies are well prepared and are useful for applying the data to calculate the cancer risk due to exposure to diesel exhaust. The Panel noted, however, that efforts to apply these studies to estimate human risk at today's ambient levels...
Exposure to diesel exhaust linked to lung cancer death in miners
In a study of non-metal miners in the United States, federal government scientists reported that heavy exposure to diesel exhaust increased risk of death from lung cancer. The study was carried out by researchers from the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health, and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, both parts of HHS.

Work exposure to diesel fumes tied to lung cancer
The study has a number of key limitations, one being a lack of data on the subjects' actual exposure to diesel exhaust. Moreover, case-control studies can offer only limited evidence of an association between two variables (in this case, diesel-exhaust exposure and lung cancer risk). And they cannot establish the extent to which diesel exhaust might affect any one worker's absolute risk of developing lung cancer. Studies that follow a population of initially healthy people over time offer stronger evidence of whether a particular exposure is related to a disease risk. Straif noted that...
