From the Paper:

"A recent experiment was conducted on air pollution and its effects on children in regards to contracting diabetes, with some startling results. The study had as its hypothesis that; "over the past decade, there has been a worldwide largely unexplained increase in the incidence of type 1 diabetes in young children" (Hathout 81). The study explored the quantitative role of exposure to air pollutants and how those specific air pollutants affected the development of type 1 diabetes in children. The results of the study showed that "odds ratio (OR) was significantly high for cumulative exposure to ambient ozone (O3) and sulfate (SO 4) in cases compared to controls" (Hathout 81)."
