July 16, 2011 - PRLog -- The deadly effects of smoking are always on the mind of smokers but still they continue to smoke. It seems that the addiction to nicotine and the satisfaction of the nicotine cravings are more important to smokers than their health.

"Now studies have concluded that smoking leads to type 2 diabetes as well."

"Smoking which causes heart stroke and attack, mouth and lung cancer and other vascular diseases also leads to diabetes."

"A number of studies have examined the association between smoking and incidence of glucose abnormalities. The findings of the study reveal that smoking could be
independently associated with glucose intolerance, impaired fasting glucose and type 2 diabetes. Hence, smoking can lead to the development of type 2 diabetes."
