Advances & More News / Broadcasting from France: Total Nitrite Consumption Tied to Higher Type 2 Diabetes Risk

Total nitrites and additive-originated nitrites are linked to higher diabetes risk, according to a study published online Jan. 17 in PLOS Medicine. Bernard Srour, Ph.D., M.P.H., from Sorbonne Paris Nord University, and colleagues examined the association between nitrites/nitrates and type 2 diabetes (T2D), distinguishing foods and water-originated nitrites/nitrates from those from food additives. The analysis included self-reported exposures from 104,168 adults followed for a median 7.3 years. Source: Advances and More licensed by HealthDay
