Posted on 03/22/2017 1:59:58 PM PDT by Zakeet
The media is touting a new study claiming global warming could be, at least in part, to blame for the "diabetes epidemic" sweeping the globe.
"When it gets warmer, there is higher incidence of diabetes," Lisanne Blauw, a Ph.D. candidate at the Netherlands-based Einthoven Laboratory and the study's lead author, told The Huffington Post Tuesday.
"It's important to realize global warming has further effects on our health, not only on the climate," Blauw said.

... and you Freepers laughed at Al Gore ...
I lost my first wife to diabetes.She was a beautiful redhead.
And she was 43.
Oh goody more Fake Science from the left
Well, duh— don’t we all drink more sweet tea in hot weather?
That is completely asinine and non-science.
Witness all the fools who will tell you that daylight savings is better for you because there’s more sunlight (and warmer) so you can stay active.
By the same “logic” these fools would say that global cooling increases diverse because people ACCRUE brown adipose fat during cooler months and are far less active because it’s colder out.
it couldn’t be all that high fructose drinks that beaple are drinking.
Idiots. TSTL. Too stupid to live.
it couldnt be all that high fructose drinks that peaple are drinking.
Everything is blamed on global warming. Its not just weather and climate. As we see, chronic diseases and medical conditions can be blamed on global warming.
I heard somebody say that terrorism is caused by global warming. Wars in general are caused by global warming. Future wars will happen as battles over natural resources, which will be caused by global warming, per the liberals.
All the stupids on the left will believe this. The rest of us are laughing out loud.
I haven’t really looked into this in detail, but perhaps others have noted this or know something about it — in recent times, is it not true that people are labelling obesity as diabetes and shyness as autism?
It’s too bad there isn’t a similar move to label progressive politics as mental illness. The leap is no larger.
Well, unrestricted population growth, if it doesn’t prove self-limiting, will eventually cause problems.
It’s a morally difficult topic to talk about, but 20th/21st century medicine has enabled some areas of the world to outstrip the population growth that would have been normal given their cultural and physical circumstances. And they want to move to a better neighborhood.
What idiots. The media is the cause of diabetes and global warming.
Just once I would love to see a global warming story that doesn’t have the word “could” in the fist sentence. To me “could” tells me the story is fiction and I am wasting time reading anything further.
I have a better causative agent for diabetes-the star Algol whose light dims and brightens.
Well, warming temperatures mean that its easier to grow food, which results in people eating more and getting fat . . . . .
It’s the sugar-rum-slave trade triangle.
Those warm, sugar growing climates enabled dispersion of sugar, and when you add in ‘slaves’, the whole thing goes nuclear!
Whoopee!! I can be cured or at least in remission if I move to northern Canada and live in an igloo. I do have diabetes type 2 and can control it by diet, absolutely no sugar, cookies, chocolate cake, brownies, jelly beans, etc., etc. I live on protein drink, popcorn, and V-8 juice. Lucky me.
This crap is truly becoming comical.
