Increase in Vaccines Causes Cot Death

end S

On May 4th 2011 a new study by Neil Z Miller and Gary S Goldman was published online by SAGE, entitled Infant mortality rates regressed against number of vaccine doses routinely given: Is there a biochemical or synergistic toxicity? This study, is another in a long line of studies revealing evidence showing the more vaccines a baby receives the more chance they have of dying from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

Miller and Goldman look for a possible correlation between vaccines and Infant Mortality Rates.(IMR). Looking at 34 countries, they research the number of infants dying of SIDS per 1000 babies and the number of doses of vaccine that each country is giving to babies under 1yr. Miller and Goldman then look for a correlation between the number of deaths and the number of doses of vaccines given. The hypothesis they were looking to prove was that the greater the number of vaccine doses given to infants before the age of 1yr, the higher the IMR would be. Their hypothesis was proven conclusively as the countries giving fewer doses of vaccines were the countries with the lowest Infant Mortality Rate.

The authors grouped the countries by vaccine dosage. 12–14, 15–17, 18–20, 21–23, and 24–26. When studied, the group in the 12 – 14 dose range, Sweden, Japan, Iceland, Norway, Denmark and Finland were the countries which had the lowest IMR per 1000 live births.

Sweden had a total of 12 vaccine doses given and showed a 2.75 IMR compared with the USA who had a total of 26 vaccine doses given and an IMR of 6.22. The USA came out as having the highest IMR rate as well as the highest number of vaccine doses. Miller and Goldman wrote:

“In 2009, there were approximately 4.5 million live births and 28,000 infant deaths in the United States, resulting in an infant mortality rate of 6.22/1000”.

Vaccine doses do not indicate the number of vaccines given but the total vaccine doses overall, as many vaccines include more than 1 vaccine dose e.g. DPaT is a 3 dose vaccine.

Of course as with all studies variables existed and these were discussed and taken into consideration.

This is not the first study showing similar results. Professionals have been noticing a correlation between vaccines and SIDS for many years. The authors mention many of these in their excellent paper.

A study not mentioned in Miller and Goldman’s paper was the Cotwatch Study written by Dr Viera Scheibner. I feel that this study is one of the most important studies ever produced. The reason for this is because Dr Viera Scheibner was not looking for any correlation between vaccines and SIDS at the time.

In 1985-1986 Dr Scheibner and her late husband Leif Karlsson (a Swedish electronics engineer specializing in patient monitoring systems) developed a pioneering true breathing monitor which they called Cotwatch, A ‘true breathing monitor’ is different from standard breathing monitors because it’s electronics separates the babies heart beat and breathing and only the breathing delays the alarm. This is unlike other monitors which take any movement as breathing. On studying the results Scheibner and Karlsson found that the charts produced by their monitor revealed that whenever the babies had had a vaccination flareups of stress induced breathing patterns occurred. The patterns seemed to appear on specific times and days following the vaccination which they named ‘critical hours and days’.

This proved conclusively that it was the vaccines that were causing the babies to have periods of stress-induced breathing. In some cases this led ultimately to the babies death.

Another study pre-dating this study and also proving that vaccines were causing infants to die was by Baraff LJ et al (1983) Pediatr Infect Dis. 1983 Jan-Feb;2(1):7-11. PMID: 6835859; UI: 83169234 Possible temporal association between diphtheria-tetanus toxoid-pertussis vaccination and sudden infant death syndrome. He wrote:

“Because diphtheria and tetanus toxoids pertussis (DTP) vaccine is routinely given during the period of highest incidence of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), this study was undertaken to determine if there is a temporal association between DTP immunization and SIDS. Parents of 145 SIDS victims who died in Los Angeles County between January 1, 1979, and August 23, 1980, were contacted and interviewed regarding their child’s recent immunization history. Fifty-three had received a DTP immunization. Of these 53, 27 had received a DTP immunization within 28 days of death. Six SI Ddeaths occurred within 24 hours and 17 occurred within 1 week of DTP immunization.”

In recent years SIDS deaths have been called a number of different things including SUID or Sudden Unexplained Infant Deaths and suffocation. Many of the babies dying have been found to have a triad of bleeds in the brain. These bleeds are being put down to the parents or care givers abusing their children often under the guise of

Shaken Baby Syndrome,Shaken Impact Syndrome,Abusive Head Trauma,Pediatric Traumatic Brain Injury,Shaken Brain Trauma,Whiplash Shaken Infant Syndrome,Non Accidental Head Injury.

Many professionals believe that this is in a bid to cover up the true extent of the problem and hide the fact that vaccines are harming our children.

These professionals include

Dr Michael Innis MBBS, DTM&H, FRCPA and FRCPath
Professor Gordon Stewart, M.D Emeritus professor of Public Health
Dr Edward Yazbak M.D. F.A.A.P
Dr Archie Kalokerinos M.D MBBS PhD FAPM
Charles Pragnell Independent social care management consultant, a Child/Family Advocate, and an Expert Defence Witness – Child Protection
Lisa Blakemore-Brown – Psychologist, Autism specialist, Expert Witness and Author
Dr Viera Scheibner (PhD.) Principle Retired Scientist
William C Torch, a retired pediatric neurologist
Dr John Plunkett – Anatomic Pathology & Clinical Pathology, Forensic Pathology
Dr Horace. Gardner – Ophthalmologist,
Dr Harold Buttram – MD, FAACP.
Dr Zachary Bravos – Legal Counsel,
Neil Z Miller Medical research journalist
Dr Kenneth Stoller M.D

The list is endless. If there was not a substantial provable link then why would all these highly qualified professionals and many many more be writing papers claiming that they have evidence proving that vaccines are causing the death of many children?

Neil Millers paper is as conclusive as it can be that vaccines can and do kill very young babies. When is the world going to wake up to this? Vaccines need to be considered as a differential diagnosis to SIDS and SBS and professionals have been saying this for years. On 20th July 2007 Lisa Blakemore-Brown made this comment Times Online

“Professor Sir Roy Meadow also works in the area of vaccine research in which
cot death is one of the adverse reactions.

On 6th July 1988 in Room 1611/12 Market Towers, he sat with others including Professor Elizabeth Miller, epidemiologist for the vaccine programmer and Dr David Salisbury, with a similar remit at the Department of Health in the Joint Sub Committee on Adverse Reactions to vaccines and immunization.

During these meetings held over many years, deaths of babies were
routinely discussed.

Leading medics have written to other medics about three and four children dying in one family within one area where the rate of cot death was much higher than in other parts of the country. At least two families reported how the deaths followed vaccines.

So why is a vaccine reaction, clearly well known to the inner medical circle, NEVER mentioned as part of the differential diagnosis?

Even now Hey and Bacon fail to even mention it.

Its time the public knew about all this Lisa Blakemore-Brown, London, UK”

How right she is, I wrote on VacTruth only a couple of week ago how Prof David Southall who is involved in aid work, sending vaccines to the third world, has known for nearly twenty years that children can die from breathing problems after a vaccine. How can parents ever trust that vaccines are safe, when evidence proves that giving multiple vaccines to young babies can be very dangerous? A full investigation needs to take place immediately investigating all vaccines. Unless governments around the world can disprove what these professionals are saying the take up for vaccines will continue on a downwards spiral.

Could lack of vitamin D be behind Sids cases?
