THE exposure to “eternal chemicals”known to be industrial poisons, may increase the likelihood of developing diabetes in middle-aged women. The analysis is based on the results of a U.S. study by the University of Michigan.

Perpetual chemicals are part of a class of numerous compounds called perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS). According to the study products may disrupt the regulatory behavior of certain protein moleculeswhich may lead to a higher risk of developing diabetes in this group.

Such eternal chemicals have molecular structures very similar to those of natural fatty acids. This component also has chemical properties and similarly interferes with industrial toxins in the human body.

“The interactions of the PFAS mixtures were greater than those of the individual PFASs, suggesting a potential additive or synergistic effect of multiple PFASs on the risk of diabetes,” the study authors noted. According to the International Diabetes Association, the number of people with the disease increased by 74 million in 2021.
