Back in 1996, we reported on diesel "feeling the wrath of the environmental and health lobbies". So, how far have things progressed? Modern civilisation revolves around crude oil. Cars are one of the most visible uses for it, and therein lies the story of two brothers: petrol and diesel. They’re born of the same origin and differentiated by little other than the lengths of their carbon atom chains, yet diesel has a far dirtier (literally) image. After all, it’s estimated that despite being more fuel efficient and producing less CO2, diesels cough out as much as 10 times more polluting soot particles than equivalent petrol-engined cars. On 2 October 1996, Autocar’s Tony Lewin wrote about the uncertain future of the controversial fuel. Health issuesDiesel is set to become the environmental battle of the next decade,” we began. “Just as more car makers are turning to diesel power in order to meet stringent consumption targets, environmentalists and medical experts have come up with new warnings liking diesel particulate (PM) emissions with increased risk of respiratory diseases and cancer.

The makers of Hotpoint and Indesit tumble dryers are NOW telling owners of machines with a known fault to UNPLUG them because of a serious fire risk. An Indesit dryer was responsible for a fire which tore through a block of flats in Shepherd's Bush last August.

(credit: AbbVie ) In decades of research, scientists have found only one medical condition that’s clearly and effectively treated with testosterone supplements: pathological hypogonadism—that’s low testosterone levels due to disease of the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, or testes. But that hasnt stopped drug makers and the supplement industry from convincing men that jacking their testosterone will stave off the effects of aging. Getting old naturally lowers testosterone in the body. In efforts to combatLow T,” testosterone sales sprung 10-fold in the US between 2000 and 2011.

The activist film-makers behind Our Power and The Bentley Effect struggled for funding but hope to unite communities It looks like something out of a Hollywood disaster movie. A blanket of smouldering fire stretches out across hundreds of hectares, the landscape burning red and blood orange, showering acrid ash and smoke on to surrounding towns. This is what happens when a bushfire combines with a coalmine. It is not an exaggeration to say the Hazelwood open-cut mine resembled something out of Dante’s Inferno . In early 2014 the fire burned in Victoria’s Latrobe Valley for 45 days. This event is unpacked in unsettling detail – including the horrible health repercussions inflicted on the populace – in a new documentary, Our Power, from the Melbourne film-maker Peter Yacono.
