Type 2 Diabetes is most often contributed to obesity, bad diet, lack of exercises or genetic causes.
Researchers from the University of Bristol and University College London published an article in a recent edition of the Canadian Medical Association Journal that proved completely different cause.
One that we actually can manage but also need to be managed by society as whole.
And it’s no small cause, it increases your risk of Type 2 Diabetes whooping 12%.
Researches analyzed data from 19 studies previously conducted on 140,825 subjects across the United States, Europe, and Australia. None of them had diabetes when their respective studies began.
At the beginning they were asked whether they were concerned about the possibility of losing their jobs, or whether they were feeling job secure. They were then followed for an average of 9.4 years so the researchers could compare the health consequences for those who felt job insecure with those who did not.
19 percent more of those with poor job security developed diabetes in subsequent years than their job secure peers did.
When the scientists excluded the studies that did not properly eliminate socioeconomic status, age, sex, weight, physical activity levels, alcohol use, and smoking as possible contributing factors, they still found that those who worried about losing their jobs were 12 percent more likely to develop diabetes than those who had no such concerns.
This shows how stress directly contributes to our health. It’s been long proven to cause high blood pressure, insomnia and many other diseases, now Type 2 Diabetes can be added to the batch.
