Diesel fumes can affect your brain

Diesel fumes can affect your brain, scientists say - Yahoo! News:

or nanoparticles, are able to travel from the nose and lodge in

demonstrated a change in brain activity..."It is conceivable that the long-term effects of exposure to traffic nanoparticles may interfere with normal brain function and information processing."...After about 30 minutes, brain wave patterns displayed a stress response, suggesting changes in information processing in the brain cortex...the result appears to be another black mark for nanoparticles found in traffic fumes, which have already been linked with increased rates of respiratory and cardiovascular disease..."
