Re: [IP] Re: D prevention

I have to disagree with the "random occurence".  If type 1 diabetes occurs in 
1 in 300 people, someone has a .33 of a percent chance of having type 1.  
However, if someone has a sibling with type 1, their odds of having it rise 
15 fold to 5%.  If it was completely random, the odds of having 3 siblings 
with type 1 diabetes would be 1 in 27 million.  Based on the increased odds 
for siblings, the odds of having 3 siblings with type 1 in a three child 
family would be 1 in 120,000.
