Deaths from drug overdosing is higher than gun deaths apparently, it would seem the American dream is fast becoming a nightmare.........will we follow?

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!

I obviously can't argue that diesel particulates contribute to the deaths of many people. But many aspects of modern life also contribute to just as many if not more deaths. Are we banging the drum and levying vast fines on these manufacturers? Modern life benefits are killing us all. Even aerosols, mould, petrol, methane, etc. etc.
Where do all these fines end up and are they helping to clean up the planet?

Etc. etc.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

It all has little to do with particulates, it is to do with where they are prolific, which is town centres, just ban them there and most of the problems will disappear. You don't see them banning shipping or trucks do you.
