SIDS blamed on vaccines. “It is more likely than not that the vaccines played a substantial causal role in the death of J.B. without the effect of which he would not have died. ” This important case decision validates that vaccines can contribute to and cause SIDS deaths in infants. There are no words to describe the importance of this decision. The Courts, FDA and independent science have all confirmed that vaccines contribute to the deaths of infants. And yet, public campaigns blame sleeping positions and co-sleeping as the primary culprits in the deaths of our most vulnerable.
Courts Confirm Vaccine Contribution to SIDS deaths
THE ROLE OF INFLAMMATORY CYTOKINES AS NEURO-MODULATORS IN THE INFANT MEDULLA HAS BEEN WELL DESCRIBED AND IS LIKELY THE REASON FOR A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF SIDS DEATHS OCCURRING IN CONJUNCTION WITH MILD INFECTION.

“In this case, I have concluded, after review of the evidence, that it is more likely than not that the vaccines played a substantial causal role in the death of J.B. without the effect of which he would not have died. The role of inflammatory cytokines as neuro-modulators in the infant medulla has been well described and is likely the reason for a significant number of SIDS deaths occurring in conjunction with mild infection. I have concluded that it is more likely than not that the vaccine-stimulated cytokines had the same effect in this vulnerable infant during sleep.”

VACCINATIONS: PART I – MEDICAL RESEARCH ON SIDS AND EPIDEMICS
by Scheibner, Viera, Ph.D.
Viera Scheibner is a retired principal research scientist with a doctorate in natural sciences. During her distinguished career, she has published three books and 90 scientific papers in prestigious scientific journals. Since the mid-80’s, she has done extensive research into vaccines and vaccinations. Her first research was in the area of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). She wasn’t even studying vaccinations, but she stumbled onto a relationship between SIDS and vaccinations that lead to a very deep study into vaccination literature in medical journals. In 1983, she published her book on the results of her research Vaccination: The Medical Assault on the Immune System. She often provides expert reports for court cases involving immunizations and vaccine-damaged individuals throughout the world.
SUDDEN INFANT DEATH SYNDROME (SIDS)
In 1985, I was introduced into the world of vaccinations through a breathing monitor invented by my husband, Leif Karlsson, who was a bio-medical engineer specializing in patient monitoring systems. Leif developed a computerized breathing monitor for babies which we called “Cotwatch”, short for ‘watching the cot’. Our monitor gives computer print-outs, and you can monitor for weeks on end, because Cotwatch is a non-touch medical technology. The sensor pad goes under the mattress; nothing is attached to the baby and the baby can roll all over the cot while the breathing is monitored. In 1986, pediatric researchers studying Crib Death Syndrome or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) believed babies were dying because of an inborn fault in the breathing control center in the brain. So they concentrated their studies on breathing. Many parents opted for monitoring their newborn babies’ breathing at home, and we collected feedback from all parents who used our monitor in this research.
OUR FIRST CASE HISTORY
This baby was put on our monitor before he was vaccinated, and for more than three weeks, there were hardly any alarms at all. Then suddenly, the mother recorded a whole series of alarms. We thought there was a defect in the monitor, and I sent a different unit, but the alarms continued. After one night when they had six alarms in 24 hours their pediatrician advised them to stop monitoring. But if you have alarms on certain days and no alarms on other days, it is not the equipment malfunctioning; there is good reason for alarms like that. I transferred the baby’s forms onto a graph, but did not understand it at the time. Five years later, I telephoned the mother and asked her when the child was vaccinated. The first injection was given one day before these alarms started. The child hadn’t even recovered before the second injection was given. So there was a high level of stress caused by vaccines even when the child was not dying. There were no alarms before vaccination, and then a series of alarms. The alarms sound to tell you that your child is under stress when their breathing is shallow (hypopneas) or when their breathing ceases temporily (apneas).
We then informed the pediatric and SIDS researchers that the babies were having alarms after vaccinations. We were not critical of vaccines and we didn’t even know about the raging controversy surrounding vaccinations. At this point, the Crib Death Management Center pediatricians stopped sending parents to get our monitor. They didn’t want parents to know that vaccines were stressing their children. Until that time, I was actually pro-vaccination.
SIDS RESEARCH IGNORES THE STRESS ALARMS
SIDS researchers call all the alarms which occur when the child is breathing very shallowly, but not dying, ‘false alarms’. Their notion of ‘false alarms’ actually prevents them from having any results. Instead of throwing these alarms into the garbage bin as false alarms we studied them, and did our own research using the computerized breathing monitor, recording the babies’ breathing longitudinally over weeks on end. Overnight six to eight hour studies are often used in SIDS research, but they are very misleading.
COT RESEARCH RESULTS
Our computer printouts of babies’ breathing showed non-stop hour by hour recording of the babies’ breathing whenever the child was in the cot. Again, the events are called apneas (pauses in breathing) and hypopneas (a stress-induced shallow, low volume breathing pattern). The graphs all showed increased stress patterns after vaccinations. For instance, after a baby was given his third triple antigen (DPT – diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus) the record of breathing changed and produced peaks in the graph, which indicated increased stress levels.
PATTERN OF FLARE-UPS
The graphs showed day by day summaries of events in breathing and the higher the vertical column (or the peak), the higher the stress levels in breathing. There are individual differences, and some children react more than others, but the pattern of flare-ups of stressed breathing follow the same pattern of critical days. The graphs show a number of days where there is no stress level in breathing; then comes day zero when the vaccine was administered. We see the effect of the vaccine within one hour, and the child’s stress level begins to go up and down. In all cases there was a 48 hour reaction after vaccination with a flare-up. Then the stress level went down through the following days until around days five to seven when they had an increased stress level. One child had a reaction on day 7; one on day 5 and 6, so there are individual differences, but the general pattern of these reactions is the same. The stress level again went down; then there was another flare-up at day 16. Of course, we continued to record the babies’ breathing after the sixteenth day. The stress level went down, and there was only a slight increase in the stress level towards the 24th day. These are the critical days. Even the onset of reactions like convulsions occur on these critical days. Even babies whose mothers recorded no fever or crying, had slightly increased stress level, on the same critical days as those babies who had stronger reactions. Two out of ten randomly picked babies had to be admitted to the hospital with serious breathing problems on these critical days.
Our next step was to explain the up and down dynamics of the flare-ups. A Canadian medical doctor, Dr Hans Selye studied the stress response in mammals to any noxious substance or injury of any kind. Selye established that when the animal is exposed to any stressor, it will first elicit an alarm reaction within 48 hours when the body is mobilizing its strength to deal with the insult. Then the body seemingly stops reacting, which he called ‘the stage of resistance’. And then there was another alarm-like reaction, which he called the stage of exhaustion. And I think that you will agree with me, that that is exactly what we see in the breathing of babies after vaccinations. You have the alarm reaction within one to two days, which may be biphasic, then you have the stage of resistance around day 5 to 7, and then you have the stage of exhaustion around day 16.
You can justly say, “Where are your controls?” In our research every child is its own control, because the stress level in breathing is measured before vaccination and after vaccination in each child.
LITERATURE SEARCH ON SIDS
Then I asked myself, are we the only people who stumbled over the dangers of vaccines? Does the medical profession know about all this? Is there anything published in the medical literature? I began to do research in medical libraries, and to my absolute astonishment, there is no end to it. For my book, Vaccination, I studied more than 30,000 pages of data published in medical journals about Crib Deaths after vaccinations. In one study, there were 41 babies who died within 21 days of their first Triple Antigen injection, and there was a clustering of these deaths along those critical days we recorded in the babies’ breathing after vaccination. This is the ultimate evidence of the causal link between the administration of those vaccines and these deaths. In the so-called “Tennessee Deaths”, hundreds of babies died there, after their DPT injections. We soon established that the vaccines are killing babies, and Crib Deaths (SIDS) are 95% vaccine deaths.
And yet the public still remains in the dark about the vaccine and SIDS connection.
