Smoking increases risk of Type 2 Diabetes

A new study by scientists in the United States has established a link between smoking and type 2 diabetes .
The study carried out by the University of Lausanne came to its conclusion after looking at data of over 1 million patients.
Researchers found that smokers were 44 per likely to develop type 2 diabetes. This percentage increases depending on the number of cigarettes smoked on a daily basis. However researchers said it was difficult to blame smoking.
It wouldn’t be unusual for smokers to have an unhealthy lifestyle . In conclusion the study said, “…that the relevant question should no longer be whether this association exists, but rather whether this established connection is causal.”
