Weight Gain From Inhaling Polluted Air?

 
This new study, conducted by Duke University and Chinese researchers, indicates that inhaling polluted air could raise the risks of:
  • gaining weight,
  • high cholesterol, and
  • insulin resistance (which can lead to type 2 diabetes).
This is consistent with other studies showing that air pollution induces:
  • oxidative stress,
  • inflammation in the organs and circulatory system, and
  • altered fat tissue.
