ABSTRACT
The article comments on the factors that trigger the increase of childhood type 1 diabetes. The incidence began to rise around the middle of the twentieth century, and an increase has been documented since then in many populations around the world . The factors that have played a role in the rise of the childhood type 1 diabetes does not exclude the role of the environment. The intuitive inference is that children have recently become exposed to new environmental agents that are causing the condition to develop.
