Rising outdoor temperatures are associated with an increased risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes, according to a new study from the Netherlands.Scientists from Maastricht University Medical Centre have suggested a one degree centigrade rise in environmental temperature could result in 100,000 new incidences of type 2 diabetes in the US each year.They hypothesise this is because of brown fat, which generates heat in response to cold and burning fat in the process. As environmental temperature rises less brown fat is needed to be burned to keep warm, leading to weight gain and insulin resistance.”This emphasizes the importance of future research into the effects of environmental temperature on glucose metabolism and the onset of diabetes, especially in view of the global rise in temperatures,” said Lisanne L Blauw, a PhD student at Leiden University Medical Center.
