Diabetes From the Air?

A few weeks ago, we posted an interview with author-researcher Donna Jackson Nakazawa that touched on the connection between toxins and diabetes. While much of the interview focused on Type 1 diabetes and autoimmune disorders, it also noted that a growing body of evidence links toxins with Type 2 diabetes.

Yesterday, another link to Type 2 diabetes was announced. A study published on the Web site of the journal Circulation found that among mice who were obese from a fast-food diet, those exposed to polluted air had greater insulin resistance and body-fat inflammation than those who were given only clean air to breathe.
