Two studies, one in the US and one in Germany shows that there is evidence to support that air pollution and diabetes have a correlation with each other. The study shows that diabetes rates climb with increasing air pollution in the form of of tiny airborne particles. The study also show that the probability that someone would be diagnosed with diabetes solely due air pollution was 1 in 10,000. http://www.sciencenews.org/view/generic/id/63971/title/Air_pollution_appears_to_foster_diabetes

That may not sound like much but it's alarming. That means hundreds of people may contract diabetes in heavily populated cities! I recently did research on an article for lung cancer and pollution contributes to that, too.

What this study tell me is that people who have a family history of diabetes they should factor in the air quality of where they want to live. I can see how air pollution could contribute to lung cancer.
