Understanding the Dangers of Greenhouse Gases Beyond Global Warming
Because the heads of federal governments, state representatives and environmental protection agencies around the globe refuse to make emissions reducing devices —like the Rentar Fuel Catalyst — mandatory, the world is already facing much bigger issues than the eventual catastrophic consequences of global warming.
So great is the international concern with regard to the inevitable effects of global warming from the millions of tons of greenhouse gases pumped into the air by power plants, factories, commuters’ vehicles, commercial vehicles, heavy equipment, and the hundreds of other sources of fossil fuel emissions, that the more immediate dangers of toxifying the atmosphere with gasoline, oil, natural gas, and diesel combustion emissions is almost wholly ignored — at least in relation to the attention global warming is given.
Evidence shows that the emissions entering the atmosphere are creating health problems at an unprecedented rate for people around the world.
Even the Green Fuel — Diesel — is Affecting the World’s Health Rates
Keep in mind, diesel fuel emissions are by far the least toxic, least prevalent, and of the least concern of all the fossil fuel emissions. With respect to fossil fuel combustion emissions, diesel engines are the greenest of all combustion engines.
But, even diesel engine combustion creates toxins that are worrisome for health-related reasons, including cancer.
With respect to cancer, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are the biggest concern. “The gas portion of diesel exhaust is mostly carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur oxides, and hydrocarbons, including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs),” explains the American Cancer Society, “The soot portion of diesel exhaust is made up of particles such as carbon, organic materials (including PAHs), and traces of metallic compounds.”
Studies by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC); The National Toxicology Program (NTP); The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) show that diesel fuel emissions — the least toxic of any fossil fuel emission — causes changes in DNA.
Most Dangerous Emissions — Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) — from Diesel Fuel Combustion
While no carcinogen can be categorized as anything but dangerous to human life, there are eight carcinogens in diesel fuel emissions that can generate the gravest illnesses.
- Benzene – According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), benzene can cause acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
- Toluene – Can cause permanent toxicity to the brain which leads to reductions in thinking, memory, and muscular abilities, as well as some losses in hearing and color vision.
- Xylenes – Exposure can cause changes in the liver and harmful effects on the kidneys, lungs, heart, and nervous system.
- Ethylbenzene – Can cause leukemia, a potentially fatal cancer of the blood-forming organs.
- Acetone – Not proven to cause skin cancer, acetone can dissolve fingernail polish, two-part epoxies, and superglue.
- Acetaldehydes – Can cause irreparable damage to DNA in cells with limited exposure.
- Ethy-methly Benzene – Has been shown to cause cancer of the kidney, testes, lung, and liver in animals.
- 1, 2, 3, Tri-Methyl Benzene – Known to the State of California to cause cancer.
The Rentar Fuel Catalyst Reduces Emissions
The Rentar Fuel Catalyst reduces the following cancer-causing diesel fuel emissions:
•Benzene – 35.4%
•Toluene – 36.1%
•Xylenes – 46.2%
•Ethylbenzene – 48.4%
•Acetone – 16.7%
•Acetaldehydes – 36%
•Ethy-methly Benzene – 48.9%
•1, 2, 3, Tri-Methyl Benzene – 58.7%
Global warming is terrifying, and so are spikes in worldwide cancer rates.
