For many years governments and medical professionals around the world have been fully aware that babies can and do die from adverse reactions to vaccination. Many government and medical websites however, forcefully repeat that there is no clear factual evidence of the causal link with vaccines and sudden infant death syndrome or SIDS. This is totally incorrect and misleading. The numbers of such vaccines deaths have never been truthfully reported, despite freely available published information. Valdes-Dapena (1967. Sudden and unexpected deaths in infancy: a review of the world literature 1954-1966) wrote:
“Sudden and unexpected death in infancy, in the United States alone, accounts for the loss of 15,000 to 25,000 human lives annually”.
Baraff LJ et al (1983) Possible temporal association between diphtheria-tetanus toxoid-pertussis vaccination and sudden infant death syndrome Pediatr Infect Dis. 1983 Jan-Feb;2(1):7-11. PMID: 6835859; UI: 83169234. 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 SIDS deaths occurred within 24 hours and 17 occurred within 1 week of DTP immunization.”
In the magazine Here’s Health, March 1980 in an article called The Whooping Cough Vaccination Professor Gordon T Stewart wrote:
“There is no doubt in my mind that in the UK alone some hundreds, if not thousands, of well infants have suffered irreparable brain damage needlessly and that their lives and those of their parents have been wrecked in consequence.
There are also, to my certain knowledge, a number of deaths after vaccination in the UK and the USA which await explanation. I see no use or justification for this kind of medical policy, and I think that the use of pertussis vaccine should be discontinued until, by better research or a better vaccine, these doubts are resolved.”
Harris L. Coutler SIDS and Seizures 1996 wrote:
“Crib death” was so infrequent in the pre-vaccination era that it was not even mentioned in the statistics, but it started to climb in the 1950s with the spread of mass vaccination against diseases of childhood. It became a matter of public and professional concern and even acquired a new name, “sudden infant death of unknown origin,.” or, for short, SIDS” Kalokerinos”
The list of articles, papers and studies go on and on.
Generally accepted statistics show that the majority of SIDS (cot death) infants die at the age of two to four months of age. Very few of these babies are below the age of two months. The government document SIDS Facts states:
“SIDS is the unexplained death of a baby under 1 year of age. Most SIDS deaths happen between 2 and 4 months of age. The number of babies dying of SIDS dramatically drops after 6 months of age.”
In fact, statistics show that 80% of all SIDS die between 2 and 4 months. Amazingly 90% of all SIDS die under the age of 6 months.
