8:09 PM

Diabetes in adults may have originated, including environmental exposure.

Live in a heavily polluted area may increase a child's risk of developing insulin resistance, a precursor of type 2 diabetes, health experts warn. Previous studies have shown links between exposure to environmental pollutants affect health, including heart disease, however, have not found a link between environmental pollution and diabetes Street.

In research published in the journal Diabetologica, the scientists examined blood samples taken from 387 children 10 years old and found children living in the more exposed areas with concentrations of air pollution insulin levels significantly higher than children living in less polluted areas.

Children exposed to pollution is estimated based on the exposure to automobile emissions, population density and land use in areas where children live. The results of this study support the notion that the development of diabetes in adults may have originated, including environmental exposure.
