What is it about?
This paper investigated the connection between early-life environment and the risk developing type 1 diabetes later in childhood. We found out that agricultural environment is potentially protective against developing type 1 diabetes while there was some indications of urban environment increasing the disease risk.
Why is it important?
This work might provide clues on how type 1 diabetes develops and how to design more health-promoting living environments in the future but more research is needed.
