Pesticides and pollution linked to diabetes - Telegraph
"Exposure to pesticides and industrial pollutants could trigger type 2 diabetes, scientists say.
While obesity is believed to be the major cause, researchers found people with higher levels of some toxic man-made chemical compounds were at greater risk of developing insulin resistance."
Since the main cause of type 2 diabetes is obesity, and since obesity is caused by fluid retention, which in turn is caused by sensitivity to salt or sodium retention, the best possible precautions you can take against developing type 2 diabetes are to eat as little salt and salty food as you can manage, so that the sodium retention is kept to a minimum, and try as far as possible to avoid taking prescribed and over the counter drugs, as the side-effects of these often include sodium retention. - Be especially wary of taking prescribed steroids and HRT in high dose. Doctors rarely monitor properly patients taking these drugs and seldom if ever warn them that they must not eat salt while taking them.
Lose weight by eating less salt! Go on! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
