For All Points-Of-The-View.

By Beverleigh H Piepers  | Air pollution, especially NO2 or nitrogen dioxide pollution, has been linked with Type 2 diabetes. In January of 2015 workers at King Saud University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia reported on a significantly increased risk of Type 2 diabetes in individuals exposed to air pollutants. Their work was published in the European Reviews of Medicine and Pharmacological Science.

In 2014 the journal Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice reported on a study from Brussels Free University in Belgium and several other research facilities in the United States, Australia, and South Africa. Ten earlier studies were combined and analyzed as if they were one large study. Both NO2 and particulate matter polluting the air were found to raise the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

In November of 2014, the European Journal of Endocrinology reported on a study from Qingdao University in China. Ten studies were analyzed as one larger study. The investigators found a significantly high risk of Type 2 diabetes in the participants inhaling NO2 and particulate matter pollutants.

Could the inhalation of NO2 and particulate matter pollutant be related to Gestational (pregnancy-related) diabetes as well? Both Type 2 and Gestational diabetes are caused by insulin resistance, so could the same environmental pollution work similarly to create both conditions? That is what scientists at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark and various other research centers in the United States and Iceland investigated. Their research, reported in September of 2017 in the journal Environment International, compared 72,745 pregnancies...

  • a total of 775 women were diagnosed with Gestational diabetes.
  • high levels of NO2 exposure during the first three months of pregnancy were associated with a 24 percent increased risk for Gestational diabetes.
  • significant links were also found for the second and third three months and the overall pregnancy.
The researchers urge caution when interpreting their results.

In October of 2017, the journal Environmental Research reported on another study covering air pollution and Gestational diabetes. Scientists at the National Taiwan University and several research facilities in Taiwan compared 21,248 pregnant women...

  • a total of 378 were diagnosed with Gestational diabetes.
  • pregnant women who lived in areas with high amounts of nitrous dioxide were more likely to develop diabetes during their pregnancy than those breathing cleaner air.
From these results, the investigators concluded air pollution was linked to Gestational diabetes.

Cleaning up the atmosphere is of vital importance to the planet and all its species. Gestational diabetes is one very important reason to develop air pollution-free air.

Although managing your disease can be very challenging, Type 2 diabetes is not a condition you must just live with. You can make simple changes to your daily routine and lower both your weight and your blood sugar levels. Hang in there, the longer you do it, the easier it gets.

For nearly 25 years, Beverleigh Piepers has searched for and found a number of secrets to help you build a healthy body. Go to to learn about some of those secrets.

The answer isn't in the endless volumes of available information but in yourself.
