Global Warming May Result In 100,000 More Diabetes Cases In The Us Yearly, Analysis Suggests

Aren Kaplan writing in the Los Angeles Times reported that global warming causing a 1°C rise in environmental temperature could result in 100,000 additional cases of diabetes in American adults. Relying on recent studies linking insulin sensitivity to temperature, Dutch scientists and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gathered “data on the prevalence of diabetes in all 50 states” and their average temperatures “for each year between 1996 and 2013.” They “found that the higher the average temperature in a particular time and place, the higher the age-adjusted incidence of diabetes.”

Comment: Surprising and disturbing.
