Inactivity Linked to Risk for Type 2 Diabetes

I wish I could comprehend some items with the ability of Tom Ross. He has a sense of humor and skepticism that make reading him blog very enjoyable for me. He can rant and vent with the best of them and you will not even know it by the way he writes. That is another reason to read his blog.

Since his blog is not one that you can link to for a specific post, I will just tell you that you need to read his post from Thursday, August 25, 2011. I like the way he boiled done the relationship between obesity and diabetes and then took us to the study which is the topic of this blog – inactivity. You will need to scroll down the page to find the blog, and I think you will enjoy his presentation. He packs a lot of good sense into his discussion and at the same time makes excellent points.

Quote I doubt very much that we are ever going to narrow this down to a simple cause-and-effect relationship between a single issue and diabetes; it is far more likely to be a tangled interaction between multiple factors.

But one factor which could be as important as obesity tends to be mentioned far less often than obesity is, as a possible cause of diabetes: physical inactivity. Unquote.

That is one of the best ways to describe much of the discussion from many articles about diabetes and obesity.

So rather that cover the topic again, it is well worth your time to read Tom's blog and then read two articles covering the topic – here from Science Daily and Medical News Today here.
