Diabetes Risk: Not only bad lifestyle, polluted air also increases the risk of diabetes!


Apart from bad lifestyle and unhealthy food, now polluted air can also increase the risk of diabetes. This has come to light in a new study.


Diabetes is becoming a common disease nowadays. A bad lifestyle, unhealthy food, and lack of exercise are often blamed for diabetes. But do you know that polluted air can also increase the risk of diabetes?

Recently, Indian scientists have found in a study that air pollution can increase the risk of diabetes by 25%. The study, which has been published in the 'Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism', was conducted on more than 50,000 people in 10 cities in India. The study found that people who lived in polluted air for a long time had a 25% higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes than those who lived in areas with clean air.

Scientists believe that harmful particles present in air pollution can damage the pancreas, which produces insulin. Insulin is a hormone that helps the body control blood sugar levels. Researchers say that our study shows that air pollution can be an important factor in the risk of diabetes. This is a serious concern for public health, especially in countries like India where air pollution levels are very high.

The researchers further said that the results of this study will help us make policies to reduce air pollution and reduce the risk of diabetes. This study can help raise awareness about the dangers of diabetes and motivate people to take measures to protect themselves from air pollution to protect their health.

Here are some tips that can help you avoid air pollution:

  • Stay indoors: When air pollution levels are high, try to stay indoors as much as possible.
  • Use an air purifier: If you have to go out of the house, wear an N95 mask or use an air purifier.
  • Use public transportation: Use public transportation instead of driving a private vehicle.
  • Plant trees: Trees help in purifying the air, so plant trees in your home and surrounding areas.
