Adverse housing conditions contribute to diabetes risk
...Atlanta, we believe it is likely that the findings would
be comparable in those cities as well. The researchers say that additional studies are needed to determine what specifically increased the risk of diabetes as a result of poor housing conditions, but many factors have already been ruled out. The c...

be that diabetes risk was associated with housing but not neighborhoods," he says. "We would
