A ground-breaking study conducted by a group of researchers from the University of Granada in Spain and published in the journal of Environmental Research found that people with higher concentrations of DDE (from the pesticide DDT), are four times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes - a result that could explain the significant increase in the health condition in the last few years. Additionally, exposure to a chemical found in the common pesticide Lindano also increases the risk of developing diabetes. Researchers have suggested that these pesticides might cause an immunological response in tissues associated with the metabolism of sugars, hence increasing your risks significantly.
Internationally, diabetes rates have risen over the past few decades and the estimates are that by 2030, approximately 4.4 percent of the global population is expected to develop diabetes.
