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’.
