diabetes and pollution

While obesity is commonly held as a cause of diabetes, an
emerging understanding of environmental pollutants is challenging this theory.

A remarkable report published in the journal Diabetes Care in July 2006 bought to
light the suggestion that low-level exposure to common environmental pollutants may
be a risk factor for diabetes.
These pollutants are most commonly found in foods so switching to organic foods may be a wise move to prevent diabetes.
Pollutants and toxins tend to accumulate in fatty tissue so losing weight may still also be a good idea for overweight individuals.
