Diabetes is on the rise and there's nothing you can do to escape a significant risk factor: pesticides. They're everywhere – in our food, air, and water. And they get trapped in fat cells.
A recent study, published in the journal Environmental Research, found that people who had higher amounts of DDE (found in DDT) are four times more likely to get type-2 diabetes than other people. If you're overweight, you're likely to be storing more pesticides. The researchers suggest this could be one reason obese people are more susceptible to diabetes.
To carry out their study, the researchers looked at 386 adults at San Cecilio hospital in Granada and Santa Ana hospital in Motril, Spain. The researchers focused on concentrations of a specific group of persistent organic pollutants (COPs) in the fat tissue of the participants.
Since fat tissue stores COPs, it makes the pollutants a useful marker of your exposure to these pollutants. COPs are chemicals that are present in pesticides, industrial waste, and building materials. They primarily get into your body through food. But you can also breathe them in or through your skin.
Adipose tissue (commonly known as "fat") acts as an energy reservoir and it can dramatically impact your metabolism. When they store pesticides, it can alter your metabolism and decrease your energy.
When this happens, the last thing you want to do is exercise. But it's what you need to do. Exercise helps you lose weight, decreasing your adipose tissue. And sweating is a natural detox.
However, that's not all you can do. You need to actively remove these trapped pesticides. There aren't many products that are effective at doing this. However, there is one. PectaSol Detox Formula contains modified citrus pectin and alginate. They bind to pesticides as well as to heavy metals to reduce your load of contaminants that contribute to diabetes and numerous other illnesses.
