Secondhand smoke causes diabetes? According to a new study recently published in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology, the latest research on smoking reveals that individuals who are routinely exposed to secondhand smoke are more at risk of developing type 2 diabetes than people who have never smoked.

Study co-author Frank Hu stated: “Cigarette smoking should be considered as a key modifiable risk factor for diabetes. Public health efforts to reduce smoking will have a substantial impact on the global burden of type 2 diabetes.”

Co- study author and professor of epidemiology with the Harvard University School of Public Health An Pan said: “Despite the global efforts to combat the tobacco epidemic, cigarette use remains the leading cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide.”

Pan adds: “This study underscores the importance of implementing and enforcing the provisions of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. The smoke-free policies can provide protections for non-smokers and may lead to increased successful cessation in smokers.”

The data also indicates that the risk of contracting type 2 diabetes can gradually drop over a period of time providing the individual in question can avoid the secondhand smoke just as a smoker can reduce his/her odds of getting diabetes by quitting smoking.

Hu reports: “Public health efforts to reduce smoking will have a substantial impact on the global burden of type 2 diabetes.”

The research team writes that the move to ban smoking in public places needs to be given a higher priority. Additionally, the investigative group notes that governments around the world should make more of an effort to put smoking laws into place in order to protect and preserve the public health.

Hu concludes: “So the strong advice is that if you smoke, whether or not you have diabetes, giving up is the single most important thing you can do for your future health.”
