Type 2 Diabetes and Pesticides, What You Should Know
This study addressed pesticides that have been banned but still linger in the environment. Therefore, it can be difficult if not impossible to avoid at least some exposure to these toxins.
However, additional research may show other pesticides to have similar effects. After all, pesticides have already been associated or suggested to have a role in ADHD, Parkinson’s disease, and a variety of other diseases and conditions.
It is always a good idea to avoid exposure to toxins. However, this new study suggests one more good reason to be more conscious of pesticide use, the purity of your food and water and the air you breathe, and the risk of type 2 diabetes.
