A study out today says more than a quarter of a million people in central Ohio are exposed to higher concentrations of diesel pollution and threat can result in health problems. The study by the Ohio environmental council urges the use of cleaner-burning diesel fuel, installation of pollution-control devices on older vehicles and alternative power sources for buses, trucks and construction equipment. One Columbus official says it will be tough to do what the group wants because of the higher costs of upgraded fuel and equipment. Exhaust from diesel engines has been linked to several health problems, including cancer, heart and lung disease along with asthma attacks.
