improved air pollution exposure may increase the risk of type 2 diabetes by increasing insulin resistance directly.
-This was revealed in a study conducted by researchers at the Helmholtz Center Munich and the German Center for Diabetes Research.
– 3000 people participated in the study
-Researchers suggest that exposure to air pollution in the place of residence increases the risk to develop insulin resistance as a pre-diabetic state of type 2 diabetes
-The results also indicate that people who already have impaired glucose metabolism (prediabetic individuals) are particularly vulnerable to the effects of air pollution.
-The study was published in the journal Diabetes .
