Air pollution linked to insulin resistance in kids

(May 10, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Germany - Air pollution may raise risk of insulin resistance in children, according to a report published in Diabetologia. Researchers collected fasting blood samples from nearly 400 10 year old children who had been followed since birth. They then analyzed each child's pollution exposure by reviewing data on road traffic in each neighbourhood. After adjusting for risk factors, researchers found that insulin resistance increased a significant amount with every increase in ambient nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter exposure.
