[IP] Type I risk study in Diabetes Care

There is a study reported in Diabetes Care 
(http://internalmedicine.medscape.com/13736.rhtml) about perinatal risk 
factors for Type I diabetes before age 15, commenting on increased incidence 
and speculating on increased environmental rather than genetic reasons.  
Strongest associations were for fetal exposure to rubella and enteroviruses, 
and for blood group incompatibility.  Other weaker risks were older than 
average maternal age, preeclampsia, and neonatal respiratory disease; 
protective effects were found for being a first born, low birth weight, and 
short birth length.
