Alert! New study reveals air pollution is causing diabetes

02 Julio, 2018, 10:56 | Author: Earnest Bishop
  • Air pollution causes nearly 15,000 cases of type 2 diabetes in UK each year, study suggests

Poorer countries with few resources to create and maintain clean-air policies, such as India, Afghanistan, Papua New Guinea and Guyana, faced a higher diabetes-pollution risk.

"And while taking steps to meet air quality standards will have a substantial impact on our collective health, there are still ways to reduce your risk of Type 2 diabetes today through a healthy diet and getting active".

While obesity, lack of exercise and genetic risk are major drivers for diabetes, studies have shown a link between the disease and pollution.

In General, the poisoning of the air, according to doctors, every year increases the number of diabetics on 3.2 million, or approximately 14% of the total number of such diagnoses.

Pollution is believed to reduce insulin production and trigger inflammation. Ahead of alcohol abuse and blood pressure, air pollution was found to be the leading cause of death, according to the study. Ziyad Al-Aly, the study's senior author, said the research found an increased risk even with levels of air pollution now considered safe by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the WHO.

Diabetes affects more than 420 million people worldwide including 30 million Americans, and is growing at one of the fastest rates of any disease.

A new study reveals that the diabetes is not a health issue but it also gives you an imbalance in mental health.proper care should be taken by a diabetic patient.

The study's senior author, Ziyad Al-Aly said, "Our research shows a significant link between air pollution and diabetes globally". They also estimated that 8.2 million years of healthy life were lost worldwide in 2016 due to pollution-linked diabetes.

The study was published June 29 in The Lancet Planetary Health. "We found an increased risk, even at low levels of air pollution now considered safe by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the World Health Organization (WHO)". Lastly, they analyzed data from the annual Global Burden of Disease study, which helped estimate the yearly cases of diabetes and healthy years of life lost due to pollution. "We wanted to thread together the pieces for a broader, more solid understanding", said Dr Al-Aly.

In this study, researchers from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis gathered data on 1.7 million U.S. veterans with no history of diabetes who had been followed for a median of 8½ years.

Recently, Chinese doctors made a decision to evaluate both the prevalence of diabetes affects the life expectancy of the Chinese, and came to the conclusion that the acquisition of this disease shortens a typical life span of nine years, and their American colleagues found that diabetes is associated with approximately 12% of deaths in the United States. Researchers continued that their findings are troubling due to many areas in the United Kingdom having excessive air pollution levels that defy safety limits. For example, people living in the pollution of 10 micrograms per cubic meter, 21% more likely to suffer from diabetes than the inhabitants of more prosperous regions. When that exposure increases to 11.9 to 13.6 micrograms per cubic meter of air, about 24 percent of the group developed diabetes. A 3 percent difference appears small, but it represents an increase of 5,000 to 6,000 new diabetes cases per 100,000 people in a given year.

In October 2017, The Lancet Commission on pollution and health published a report outlining knowledge gaps on pollution's harmful health effects.

"Ten or 15 years ago, we thought that air pollution caused pneumonia, asthma and bronchitis and not much more than that", said Dr. Philip Landrigan, dean for global health at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in NY, who was not involved in the study.
