What You Need to Know About the SIDS-Vaccine Link



Who would have thought that one little card in a can of baby formula could cause so much upset?   Imagine if the media cared that much about, oh I don’t know the huge rise in chronic illness in children, or any one of a number of real issues… Imagine if the mother who found the card could have actually looked into the issue, instead of getting so mad that some one did such an outrageous thing as try to help save the lives of new babies?

The well-meaning person who left a learntherisk.org vaccine information card in a can of tin of baby formula probably wasn’t aware how much news coverage this very small action would get.   What’s great about it, is that this has bought to light an issue that has been covered up and ignored for such a long time.  It has started a conversation that needs to be had, and in the meantime maybe woken some parents up to the disturbing truth behind so-called cot deaths and those ‘red-nosed’ days.

The Facts On SIDs

SIDs or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome is the leading cause of death in the first 6 months of life.  90% of all SIDs occurs in babies under 6 months of age.  While the ‘offical’ recommendation for SIDs contain some helpful advice there is still a great deal of information that they are failing to tell new parents when it comes to what the real risk factors for SIDS are.   Most of the authority bodies will not discuss specific causes of SIDs, such as exposure to chemicals in the first few months of life.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recently updated their information about sleep recommendations. They mention skin-to-skin contact and breastfeeding as being helpful in providing added protection against SIDs ( which is great to see.) They also mention how sharing a room with a parent is beneficial and can decrease the risk of SIDs by 50%.  Surprise, surprise there is no mention of vaccines. (You always have to dig a bit deeper to get to the truth).

The Researchers Who Discovered GSK Deleted Data Showing Vaccines Caused Infant Deaths   

Two Indian researchers Dr Puliyel and Dr Sathyamala recently discovered deleted hidden data in the Periodic Safety Update Reports (PSUIs) for the Infanrix Hexa vaccine (given to Australian babies from 2 months of age).  They discovered that GSK deleted deaths which were previously included in a 2012 report.   In their journal review, Dr. Puliyel and Dr. Sathyamala show in their analysis that 83% of the deaths reported occurred in the 10 days immediately following the vaccination, and 17% occurred in the following 10 days.

Furthermore, our analysis shows that the deaths acknowledged in the PSUR 16 have been deleted from the PSUR 19. The observed deaths are spontaneously reported to GSK and are likely to be underestimated. Adding in the deaths deleted from the PSUR 16, there is a statistically significant increased risk of death in the first four days after vaccination, compared to the expected deaths. The manufacturers will need to explain why these deaths were not included in the PSUR 19. The increased risk of death was not communicated to the regulatory authorities or to the health personnel administering this vaccine.

GSK have been caught out at last, deleting data which shows their products can kill babies.  Where is the outrage at that?

Other Researchers Who Examined the Vaccine-SIDs Link

Dr Viera Scheibner is a retired research scientist who has published three books and 90 scientific papers in prestigious journals. Since the mid 80s she has done extensive research into vaccines, with her early research in the area of SIDs. Her research focused specifically on the changes in breathing monitors developed for cots. What she found was that the babies that had been recently vaccinated recorded alarms in the days following vaccinations, often in the days following. So what it showed was the high level of stress that the vaccines caused. The alarms indicated that the child’s breathing was shallow (hypopneas) or when the breathing had ceased temporarily (apneas).

Infant Mortality Rates and Vaccine Doses

study by Neil Miller and Gary Goldman published in ‘Human and Experimental Toxicology’ examined several countries with varying infant mortality rates and compared them based on the number of vaccine doses given. It looked at countries with significantly better rates than the US, which was ranked 34th. These countries included Japan, Singapore and Sweden which had the top three scores and the lowest IMRs. The researchers found the top three countries had considerably less vaccine doses in the first year of life than the others.

His study concluded that for the 34 nations with top IMRs a correlation was found between the IMR and the number of vaccine doses routinely given to babies. The findings displayed an important relationship: that nations requiring more vaccine doses tend to have higher infant mortality rates.

Proof Of Vaccine-SIDs Link From Japan

After 37 deaths from the DPT shot, the Japanese Govt declared it illegal to vaccinate a child under the age of two.  Until that time Japan had been following the America schedule starting at 2 months.  When young babies stopped being vaccinated meningitis and infantile convulsions also stopped.  What also happened is that Japan’s infant mortality rate which has been 17th, shot up to 1st place, making it the lowest infant mortality rate in the world.  SIDS rates increased once again in Japan since the government now recommends vaccinations be administered from three months.

More Evidence For Vaccines Causing SIDs

There is evidence in the literature that a subset of infants may be more susceptible to SIDs shortly after vaccination. A study by Torch found that two thirds of babies who had died from SIDs had been vaccinated against DPT. (diphtheria – pertussis – tetanus) prior to their deaths. Of these 6.5% died within 12 hours, 39% within three days, the rest within three weeks . Torch also found that vaccinated babies died most often at 2 and 4 months – the same ages the initial doses of DTP were given. Another study by Fine and Chen reported babies died at a rate nearly 8 times greater than normal within 3 days after getting a DTP vaccine.

The DTPa shot given to children from just 2 months of age lists convulsions and collapse as known side effects.

To this day many doctors downplay or simply deny a connection between vaccines and SIDs, ignoring so much evidence that shows the truth.

What’s infuriating is that the media jump on one person for trying to educate new mothers about the hidden risks of SIDs following vaccination, whilst failing to look into the issue and find the truth.  There is overwhelming amount of evidence to show that vaccines do increase the risk of SIDs.
