Electropollution

While everyone is familiar with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, many would be surprised to find that some are taunting to possibly be a third type of diabetes. The cause of this new strain of the disease is being blamed on electricity.

The third type of diabetes, affectionately known as type 3 diabetes, is said to be due to individuals exposed to the emittance of “dirty electricity” from electrical devices. These devices can include everything from TVs, to cordless and cellular phones, to even compact fluorescent light bulbs.

It is theorized that prolonged exposure to these devices causes the individual's heart rate to increase, as well as spikes in their blood sugar levels. Some of this theory is based on studies that compare blood sugar levels for individuals who walk on a treadmill, versus individuals who walk outside. These studies claim that blood sugar levels are higher for treadmill walkers simply because of the “dirty electricity”.

The problem lies in the fact that electrical devices are all around us. Even if we are not using microwaves in the home, these types of signals are still bouncing through the air from transmission tower to tower.. Wi-Fi signals are everywhere from restaurants, to coffee shops. Cell towers generate radio waves constantly. You can easily drive through neighborhoods with a laptop and pick up internet signals from private residences everywhere.

While there have been studies that show how electricity can alter different aspects of the body, such as heart rate, there will have to be additional studies to confirm that electricity also has the ability to affect blood sugar levels.
