Cigarette Smoking "Major" Risk Factor For NIDDM
Men who smoke 16-25 cigarettes per day, or
more, have a "...3.27 times higher risk of developing non-insulin-dependent
diabetes..." than men who have never smoked. The finding, described in the
January 15 issue of the American Journal of Epidemiology, is from an 8-year
study of more than 2,300 Japanese men.
Age at initiation of smoking also appears to be linked to risk of developing
NIDDM, Dr. Norito Kawakami of Gifu, Japan, says. The lead investigator notes
that "...[b]eing a past smoker at baseline [is] associated with a nonsignificant but
slightly lower risk of NIDDM...[which] is consistent with a trend of decreasing
NIDDM risk with years since quitting smoking."
