Diabetes – a disease for which there are many causes, ranging from genetic predisposition and genes to nutrition and environmental factors. Experts from Cambridge University have traced a clear relationship between the risk of developing diabetes and weather conditions.
It turned out, in cold climates, for example, in Iceland, the incidence of diabetes is lower than in India, where the rainy season can last for months, and the rest of the time in the country hot.
In total the study involved 16 thousand people. Experts say that the climate has an impact on the risk of disease, but never will cause its development. The vast majority of cases of diabetes mellitus of the second type develops on the background of obesity, reduced physical activity and poor eating habits.
