Titanium dioxide is a very common white pigment found in items that we use on a daily basis ranging from paint, candy, medications and cosmetics. A study by researchers at The University of Texas at Austin has found crystalline particles of this pigment in pancreas specimens with type 2 diabetes, suggesting that exposure to the white pigment may be associated with the disease.
