Shaken Baby Syndrome & Vaccine Damage

May 23, 2009

I have just become aware of a case in Philadelphia where a family may be charged with Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) that resulted in the death of their infant son, Cameron.

We have all heard of SBS – and quietly damn the fathers and mothers who could so violently shake their infants that their brains are damaged and their fragile necks and spines are broken.

However, it has been brought to my attention that some families are being wrongly accused of SBS when there are no broken bones – only traumatic head injury.

Most SBS cases occur between infancy up to 2 yrs. old -some cases up to 5 yrs. old.  Interesting to note that this is when the majority of childhood vaccines are administered.

The heavy metals found in “dirty” vaccines are able to cross the blood brain barrier and causing neurological damage. What if a percentage of SBS cases are falsely accused and are actually the result of pre-exisiting neurological problems (as in the Philadelphia case), compounded with doctor prescribed medications and vaccinations.

I decided to do some research on this topic and came across a web site called

After reading through the site – I became even more convinced that SBS may not always be the family’s fault.

Read through Neuro-Anatomy 101 – and you will begin to understand why.

Other processes can focally or diffusely injure the brain. The brain requires moment-to-moment uninterrupted supplies of oxygen, glucose, and blood. Interruption of any of these supplies can result in global damage to the brain which may be irreversible dependent upon the severity and length of time of the interruption.

“All forms of brain injury produce swelling/edema of the brain which can lead to its own secondary damage to the brain locally or as a whole.

“There are four main equilibria that operate in the brain, that are interlinked and the disruption of which can have profound effects on the brain. These are: cerebral circulation and vascular autoregulation; production and absorption of cerebrospinal fluid; the blood-brain barrier systems; and the pressure/volume equilibrium. Brain trauma and brain hypoxia/ischemia that invariably accompany brain trauma at any age have profound effects on all of these systems and govern the clinical symptomology, clinical presentation, treatment options, and prognosis in any case of head/brain injury.

“When one or more of these equilibria are disturbed, the brain may swell, increasing in volume, and may herniate.”

Is this another aspect of vaccine injuries that we have yet to admit?  How many families have been falsely accused?  Accoding to the SBS Defense site 1,500 families have been accused of SBS – but they do not cite the year or time-span.

I have interviewed many experts on the vaccination issue on my radio show
on KRFC FM.  Many have discussed how toxins (heavy metals in vaccines) can cause cross the blood brain barrier and cause neurological damage.

Guess I have to do more research.

Something else to think about – including another aspect of vaccine injuries.
