Studies can reveal Nail polish are a risk factor for Diabetes in women
A new study has found the link between the concentration of pthalates to the diabetes risk in women. According to the study, an increased concentration of pthalates in the body can increase the chances of diabetes in women.
Pthalates have the capacity to disrupt the endocrine system in the body which are commonly used in many of the cosmetics and personal care products. The most common products include nail polishes, moisturisers, soaps, hair sprays and perfumes. Apart from personal care products we can also be exposed to pthalates from daily used products like electronics, toys, adhesives and many other products.
Tamarra James-Todd, PhD, researcher in the Division of Women's Health at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH), along with her co researchers has performed analyses of urinary concentrations of pthalates in about 2350 women. And according to the results of the researches, she has found out that the women with more pthalate concentration in the urine were more susceptiblee to diabetes.
Among these American women were people equally distributed socio-demographically, behaviorally and dietwise. James Todd has said that this was indeed an important step in identifying the link between pthalates and diabetes. She added that more research would have to go into this issue to understand the relation clearly and avoid it.
