(NaturalNews) Parents, listen up. It was announced on February 3, 2013 that between 1985 and 2005, researchers took a registry of young patients in Philadelphia and found a staggering increase, 70 percent in fact, in children under five having Type I diabetes. This is according to the work presented in the journal Diabetes Care. This is similar to findings across the United States and in Europe.

When posing the question as to why the increase in children with this disease, lead author and professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, Terri Lipman, replied "Unfortunately, the answer is we don't know."

Type I diabetes, the type in which patients are dependent on insulin use, used to be considered a disease that begins in adolescence, but this new evidence indicates it is showing up in babies and toddlers as well.

More uncertainty of the cause in the young children, comes from Type I diabetes specialist, Carol Levy, of Mount Sinai Hospital in New York who states "this young group is a mystery."

Symptoms to watch for in young children include extreme thirst and frequent urination. Therefore, bed wetting accidents and abnormally wet diapers in babies can be tell tale signs.

Can a healthy diet help avoid chronic disease?

It has long been suggested and many say proven, that diet plays a major role in whether disease is able to manifest in the body. And as many know, mother's and to some extent father's are often the main providers of food for their children.

The recent article "Plants over meats" published on The Star Online website discusses the role of food in health and disease, pulling points from the film Forks over Knives.

"The film provides compelling evidence that a whole-food, plant-based diet is able to prevent, control or even reverse obesity, hypertension, hypercholesterolaemia, diabetes, heart disease and other chronic diseases" says Dr. Amir.

Another article, published same day, surfaced in the Lifestyle section of Canoe which discusses a centuries-old tradition of Buddhist cuisine and how it is "moving out of the temples and monasteries and into mainstream restaurant culture," which "is largely vegan in nature and incorporates an impressive variety of wild roots, herbs and vegetables."

It's purpose: to attempt to improve a situation in a country which "has growing levels of obesity and diabetes."
