Diabetes Care has recently released results on a study that links second-hand smoke to the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Dr. John Forman at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, started his research by looking through questionnaires answered by 100,000 female nurses in 1982, according to Reuters. The form included several insights on second-hand smoke at the time, and surprisingly, one in 18 of these women developed the disease. The research also showed that those who smoke two or more packs of cigarettes a day had higher risks of developing diabetes.
Of course, there are some limitations to the results, and other unknown factors could be taken into consideration as well. The majority of the women in the survey, for example, are all white, and elements such as weight status, and family history were not a part of the 24-year study.
