Sudden Death of Your Child After Vaccination May Be Written Off by Researchers

By WENDY LYDALLl | VACTRUTH | MARCH 28, 2013

Around the world, medical authorities tell parents that vaccination has been proven not to cause SIDS, and sometimes they are even told that vaccination prevents SIDS. However, the studies that are used to justify these claims use research methods that do not adequately investigate the possibility that vaccination may actually increase the risk of SIDS in susceptible babies.

The Case-Control Method

A favourite method used by researchers who are looking at the relationship between vaccination and SIDS is the case-control method. Case-control studies compare babies who died with babies who did not die.

The researchers select a group of babies who died of SIDS within a particular geographical area, and these babies are called the cases. Each case is matched with two or three live babies who are called the controls. The vaccination history of the baby who has died is then compared with the vaccination histories of the two or three babies who have not died. Babies who have not received any vaccinations are excluded from the study.

In the case-control studies that have been published, researchers have found that when the live babies were at the age at which the case baby died, they had received more vaccine doses than those who had died. This leads the authors to conclude that vaccination does not cause SIDS, which is a happy conclusion for those who want to promote vaccination, but far from scientifically sound.

One problem with the case-control method is that it could be comparing fragile babies who are susceptible to dying from an immunological onslaught with tougher babies who can survive being injected with animal tissue, human tissue, peanut oil, attenuated germs, toxic metals, toxic chemicals, and genetically engineered yeast. Case-control studies can be useful for investigating something that is static at the time of death; for example, whether the baby was sucking a pacifier, or lying face down.

However, the effects of vaccination are not static; they are ongoing, and they are unknown. Case-control studies can also be useful if you take all the confounding factors into account, but in the case of vaccine susceptibility, no one yet knows what the confounding factors are. Controlling for factors that are known to increase the risk of SIDS does not mean that you are controlling for factors that increase the risk of SIDS from vaccination.

An Important Discovery

In the most recent case-control study, which was done in Germany, researchers found that the babies who died had had fewer vaccinations than the ones who were still alive, and that their vaccinations had been done later. [1]

The latter finding may be significant. Parents can be reluctant to turn up on time for vaccinations when they feel that their baby is unusually fragile, or when they know that vaccine reactions run in the family. Some parents who are not keen on vaccination eventually comply because of the extreme pressure that is put on them, but they do it later than at the prescribed time.

Interestingly, the researchers did find a statistically significantly higher rate of developmental problems, hospital admissions and special investigations, like x-rays or electrocardiograms, in the SIDS babies compared to the live babies. [2] This discovery might mean that the babies with these problems, who were only 22 percent of the SIDS babies, were more susceptible to dying unexpectedly, and that vaccination played no role in their deaths.

Alternatively, it might mean that these babies were susceptible to an unknown effect of vaccination, and that vaccination killed them. A different study design would need to be used to ascertain whether vaccination played a part in the deaths of this 22 percent. The fact that these babies had had fewer doses of vaccine than the live babies with whom they were compared does not mean that they were not pushed over the edge by the vaccines that entered their bodies.

Metabolic Disorders

There has been some consideration of the role that metabolic disorders might play in making children susceptible to adverse reactions from vaccination, but while the possible relationship to SIDS has been considered by one group of doctors, there has not been an actual study. There are many types of metabolic disorders, but each one occurs in only a few children.

In 2010, a group of doctors published an article in which they considered the possibility that some children who were born with metabolic disorders may have died from the whole-cell whooping cough vaccine. The doctors paid special attention to a metabolic disorder called medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency.

After considering the biological pathways in children with medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency, the doctors concluded that one third of the babies who were born with this disorder, and who were also injected with the whole-cell whooping cough vaccine, could have died from resultant low blood sugar. [3]  Because medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency is very rare, this amounted to only 39 babies per year in the USA.

The consideration of medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency was only done seven decades after the whole-cell whooping cough vaccine was introduced. There are more than four hundred metabolic disorders that need to be considered and studied. There may be other types of vulnerability apart from metabolic disorders that make babies susceptible to dying quietly from vaccination. Case-control studies are unable to detect deaths that occur because of individual susceptibility.

Long ago, I mentioned to a pediatrician who publishes articles about SIDS that I considered case-control studies to be an inadequate way of testing whether vaccination increases the risk of SIDS. He replied, “That’s the way it has always been done.”

Valentina A. Soldatenkova is a mathematician and physicist who has also expressed the opinion that case-control studies are inadequate for assessing the relationship between vaccination and SIDS. In her published critique of the existing case-control studies, she criticises the study designs employed and statistical methods used by researchers to conclude that there is no relationship between vaccination and SIDS. [4]

The Institute of Medicine in the USA has the job of publishing complicated whitewashes about vaccine side effects, and they, of course, have done exactly that in regard to the question of whether vaccination may cause some cases of SIDS. Their lengthy report on the existing studies concludes that “the evidence does not support a causal link” between vaccination and SIDS.

Soldatenkova says that their report should have stated that “the evidence is inadequate to accept or reject a causal relation between SIDS and vaccines.” [4]

Temporal Studies

Another type of study that is often quoted as proving that vaccination does not cause SIDS is the temporal study. Central to these studies is the assumption that if vaccination were to cause a sudden unexplained death, it would do so within 12 hours, or 24 hours, or 48 hours, or 7 days, or 14 days. [5,6,7,8] No one knows what vaccines do once they get inside the body, so no one knows what the time frame is for a negative effect. Implying that they do know is bordering on fraudulent.

Antibodies only start appearing two weeks after vaccination, and the production of antibodies continues for a few more weeks. The researchers, who are sometimes being paid to do the study by a vaccine manufacturer, have no basis for assuming that any negative effects of the ingredients in vaccines would take less time to develop than it takes for antibodies to develop.

The Possible Link Between Vaccination, Blood Sugar, and SIDS

It is possible that some SIDS deaths may be caused by low blood sugar. Dr. C. Horvarth reported that during a three-year period in New Zealand, the blood sugar level of 84 babies who had died inexplicably was measured at autopsy, and in 81 of them, the level was found to be below the normal range. [9]

Other studies have shown that low blood sugar is strongly associated with SIDS. [10,11,12,13] When the whole-cell whooping cough vaccine causes the level of blood sugar to drop, the drop starts at about 8 days after injection, reaches its lowest point at about 12 days after injection, and becomes normal at about 24 days after injection. [14]

Promising New Protocols

Many countries have passed legislation that an autopsy must be done after every SIDS death, and they have introduced protocols that have to be followed. This is a great step forward. Previously autopsies were only done if someone felt like doing one, and they could decide what to investigate and what to ignore.

One of the benefits of the introduction of autopsy protocols is that explanations are found for some of the otherwise mysterious deaths. In Germany, for example, a non-SIDS explanation for 11.2% of the SIDS deaths was found because of the autopsies. [15]

In the future, the protocols will help to identify ways to reduce the incidence of SIDS.  In the mean time, they help detect to infant abuse, and they help to prevent parents from being falsely accused of abuse. The protocols also mean that doctors can no longer write off blatantly obvious reactions to vaccination as SIDS.

The usefulness of the autopsies would be enhanced if they were to include an assessment of the blood sugar level at the time of death, which can be done even though blood glucose continues to be broken down for a short while after death. [10, 16]

Conclusion

SIDS has been occurring since long before vaccination was invented. [17]  As records of its incidence were not kept until relatively recently, it is not possible to know whether the rate of SIDS in modern times is different to what it was in the distant past. To gain more insight into the distressing phenomenon of SIDS, blood sugar levels at the time of death should be assessed in every SIDS autopsy, and every vaccine that is recommended for infants should be tested to find out whether it causes blood sugar levels to drop at any time after vaccination.

Baby Girl Dies Hours After Getting 5 Vaccinations

By CHRISTINA ENGLAND | VACTRUTH | MARCH 19, 2013

On February 21, 2013, a one month-old baby girl died after receiving her first vaccinations. Baby Ayushi Gupta died at the Maltibai Hospital, Thane, West Mumbai in India just hours after receiving her vaccinations for Hepatitis B, DPT (diptheria, pertussis and tetanus) and oral pulse polio drops.

Her parents blame her death on the vaccinations and have filed a complaint with the Thane Nagar police station against the hospital for negligence.

Just before her vaccinations, Ayushi’s parents, Amit and Lata Gupta, informed the hospital that their baby was unwell and had a cough. After examining the baby, doctors told her parents that the cough was caused by a change in the weather and continued with the vaccinations.

FIVE VACCINES LATER, THEIR DAUGHTER IS GONE

According to reports, Ayushi began to cry immediately after receiving the vaccinations. However, doctors informed her anxious parents that it was possible that she would cry the entire day, as this was a common side effect of the vaccinations! They advised her parents to take her home and feed her two hours later.

The Mumbai Mirror, reporting on the story, issued a statement from her parents, who said:

“We brought her home and fed her milk around two hours later. Around 7 pm, her eyes were shut and we assumed that she had fallen asleep,” Amit said. “When my wife tried to wake her up, she did not move.” [1]

On finding their baby ill, they immediately rushed the sick infant to the Maltbai Hospital. Sadly, it was too late and Ayushi was pronounced dead on arrival.

According to The Mumbai Mirror, Senior Inspector P. Thorat from Thane Nagar Police Station told reporters that they had recorded statements from the all the staff responsible for administering vaccinations and they had checked the vaccine batches.

Experts reported that adverse reactions after vaccinations were rare and that 22 other children received the vaccines and were said to be fine.

A TRAGIC PROCEDURE

I would like to ask those experts two important questions:

1. As Ayushi was sick on the day of her vaccinations, was it appropriate for her to receive her vaccinations in the first place?

2. Seeing that Ayushi was so distressed upon receiving her vaccinations, why wasn’t she monitored by the hospital for 24 hours, just in case?

In the Western World, it is unusual for a child this young to receive so many vaccinations at one time, but according to the Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) vaccination schedule, this procedure is normal. [2] In fact, as soon as a child is born in India, they are given the BCG, OPV O (oral polio) and the Hep B vaccination. This vaccination schedule is especially frightening when you consider that, according to the mainstream media, polio has been almost been completely eradicated in India. [3)]

THE REAL DANGER IS NOT POLIO

If polio has been almost completely eradicated, then why is it necessary to vaccinate newborn babies with the polio vaccination at birth and continually for the first five years of their life? According to the Indian vaccination schedules, children in India receive the polio vaccine at  the following ages:

  • Birth
  • 6 weeks
  • 10 weeks
  • 14 weeks
  • 6 months
  • 9 months
  • 16 –18 months
  • 4-5 years

In fact, children in India receive four shots of the IPV (inactivated polio vaccine) and four doses of the OPV (oral polio vaccine) before they are five years old. Eight polio vaccinations seems like an awful lot of vaccines for an illness that has almost been eradicated, doesn’t it? Is it any wonder that babies are dying?

“>The vaccination schedule according to the Indian Academy of Pediatrics.

The Indian vaccination schedule recommended by the Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP).

I felt physically sick when I read just how many vaccines these small, fragile babies and children are receiving. Alarmingly, they can receive fifty or more vaccinations by the time that they are five years old! Admittedly, some of these vaccinations are triple vaccines such as the MMR and DTP.

Even when you take this fact into account, this is an incredibly high number of vaccinations to give a young child, especially when you consider that many of the children receiving these vaccines are sick, malnourished and may live in appalling conditions with no access to clean drinking water.

Children who are considered “high risk” are administered an additional seven vaccinations. Their immune systems are already under stress as they battle conditions such as HIV infection, chronic cardiac and pulmonary disorders, asthma, liver disease, renal issues, diabetes, hematologic concerns. Children who are receiving long-term steroid therapy, salicylates, immunosuppressive treatment, or radiation therapy are also administered the additional vaccines. How can their already compromised immune systems handle over fifty vaccines containing multiple toxic ingredients?

One important point that the mainstream media conveniently forgets to mention is this: a recently published paper suggested that increased administration of OPV doses among children in India has been associated with increases in acute flaccid paralysis (AFP), which is as crippling and deadly as wild type polio paralysis! This is what you could call pulling the wool over the public’s eyes.

Dr. Mercola reported in August 2012:

“A paper published earlier this year in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics should have made headlines around the globe, as it estimated there were 47,500 cases of a polio-like condition linked to children in India receiving repeated doses of oral polio vaccine in 2011 alone. The incidence of non-polio Accute Flaccid Paralysis (AFP) in India is now 12 times higher than expected and coincides with huge increases in OPV doses being given to children in the quest to “eradicate” wild type polio infection and paralysis.” [4]

So, in a bid to stop the spread of polio, a disease which according to Bill Gates has already been almost completely eradicated, he, along with many of the organizations he works with, have legitimized paralyzing children with the polio vaccinations supposedly administered to protect them. I say this because if Bill Gates and “humanitarian” organizations were truly concerned about the welfare of these children, they would have stopped using the OPV vaccinations completely after the above report was published.

Instead, this type of legitimate genocide is what Bill gates and his army of helpers call God’s work, while the government, big pharma and the medical profession call it health care!

CONCLUSION

Interestingly, the OPV vaccinations were discontinued in the USA in 2000 because they were causing vaccine-associated paralytic polio. Rather than destroy these life-threatening vaccinations, these vaccines, along with many other discontinued and dangerous vaccines, were shipped over to the developing world to be used there. [5]

Sickening, isn’t it? Not according to Bill Gates, who says that in six years polio will be wiped off the planet. He said:

“We are on the verge of doing something we’ve never been able to do before—reaching the vast majority of children in the remotest places in the world.” [6]

What he did not mention, of course, was the fact that these vaccinations are causing many of the children to become paralyzed with AFP instead or even dying, as in baby Ayushi’s case. How many other children have died after receiving these vaccines without their death being reported? I would like to ask Mr. Gates why he feels it necessary to give children in India four doses of a vaccine that was banned from his own country, and whether he would be prepared to vaccinate his own children with the same vaccine?
