For many years around the world, doctors, scientists and professors of medicine have been debating as to whether ‘Shaken Baby Syndrome’ or SBS as it is known, actually exists. For a diagnoses of SBS a baby will need to display a serious acquired brain injury, which is said to be caused when a frustrated or angry adult holds an infant or toddler by the trunk or arms and shakes back and forth in a jerking, whiplash motion. Most cases occur in children under one year of age, although there are documented cases of SBS in older children.
Shaken Baby Syndrome” (SBS) is the term used to describe the collection of signs and symptoms resulting from a child being shaken violently. However,Shaken Baby Syndrome is sometimes difficult to recognize and even more difficult to prove. Which is why many parents claim they have been falsely accused. The doctors say the reason for this is, that many babies who are shaken show no outward signs of abuse, their injuries only become evident when a CT scan or MRI of the head detects subdural haematomas. Another test used in SBS to detect injuries is a simple eye exam, which can detect the presence of retinal haemorrhages. Which doctors claim is another symptom of a shaken baby.
However, common sense tells us, that if a baby was shaken this hard there were be at least some bruising. Sadly it seems that this does not convince doctors as more and more parents are being accused of SBS, which is worrying some doctors, especially as many of these cases are occurring shortly after vaccines and seem to occur particularly in the two to four month age range.
Dr Viera Scheibner in Shaken Baby Syndrome Diagnoses on Shaky Ground said:-
“An epidemic of accusations against parents and baby sitters of Shaken Baby Syndrome is sweeping the developed world. The United States and the United Kingdom are in the forefront of such questionable practise. Brain (mainly subdural, less often subarachnoid) and retinal haemorrhages, retinal detachments and rib and other bone ‘fractures’ are considered pathognomic. However, the reality of these are very different and well documented: the vast majority occur after the administration of childhood vaccines and a minority of cases are due to the documented birth injuries and pre-eclamptic and eclamptic staes of the mothers.”
So why are more parents than ever being falsely accused of shaking their babies? Is it one big cover up, to hide that many of these injuries are being caused by the vaccines?
Dr Buttram believes that all parents accused of Shaken Baby Syndrome are 100% innocent as he believes the syndrome is physiologically impossible.
In an email to me he said:-
“As far as I am concerned, parents accused of shaken baby syndrome are 100 percent innocent, as the syndrome is physiologically impossible, having been totally discredited by the scientific (Ph.D.) speciality known as bio-engineers, which has found that if such violent shaking were actually taking place, it would be fatal in virtually all cases, not from head injury but from a broken neck. The same is true for multiple fractures in infants, the vast majority of which are from metabolic bone disease,.the biggest risk factors being congenital rickets (vitamin D deficiency) and prematurity.”
Harold Buttram, MD
In a paper written by him on SBS called Shaken Baby Syndrome and Non-Accidental Injury: Are Parents and Caretakers Being Falsely Accused Dr Buttram proves his theories by using examples of experiments that have been used to dispel the theory. He shows how an experiment on monkeys used to show how babies can have bleeding inside the brain with no sign of any other injury, which has since been used to prove SBS cases, actually falls down because there is no comparison between the head and neck of an adult monkey and the head and neck of a small infant child who is barely able to hold their head up.
Quoted from his paper he says:-
“As pointed out in the Uscinski report,(1) the brain and head of an infant is nearly seven times larger and heavier than that of a monkey. In addition, adult monkeys are known to be incredibly strong, approximately four times stronger than humans. There would be no comparison, therefore, between the neck muscle strength of an adult monkey and that of an infant, barely able to hold up his or her head by age six months, so that if violent shaking were actually taking place, the incidence of neck injuries in the SBS should be exponentially greater than in monkeys. With these facts in mind consider the following:
Most SBS cases in the USA take place during the first six months of life, when there are negligible infant neck muscles. As will be shown further on, the major impact of violent shaking would fall at the junction between the base of the skull and brainstem area and upper cervical spinal cord. In most if not all nstances this would result in instant death or paraplegia from brain stem or cervical spinal cord injuries.
11 of the 19 monkeys (over 50 percent) in the Ommaya experiments had significant neck as well as brain injuries.
Although human brain injuries may occur in rear-end vehicle collisions, whiplash injuries to the neck comprise an overwhelming majority of adult injuries, in which ligaments and muscles are torn, resulting in estabilization of the cervical (neck)vertebral column. Since infants have only rudimentary neck muscles and connective tissues as cushions, the full impact of shaking would fall on the highly vulnerable cervical spinal cord at the base of the brain, which almost certainly would cause death or paraplegia.
In view of these considerations, one would expect a far greater incidence of severe cervical skeletal and spinal cord injuries in infants than took place in the monkeys, and yet this type of injury has not been documented in any SBS case to date. In view of these
facts, the Shaken Baby Syndrome theory defies both reason and common observation. As a simple statement, it is physiologically impossible.
As a final observation concerning “Non accidental Injury,” in which it is assumed that
there is a head impact in the process of shaking, there must be substantiating evidence in
the forms of head/scalp bruising and/or subgaleal (scalp) hematoma in order to justify
such an assumption.”
Dr Buttrams papers and his evidence has been used in many cases.
Over the years it has been proven that vaccines have been the cause of the death of babies and have caused symptoms seen in cases of SBS. The most famous of those being that of Alan Yurko. The Yurko Project: Triumph Over Tragedy tells the tragic story of baby Alan. Alan died aged 2 months of suspected SBS, his father was accused of his murder and given a life sentence plus 10years. Alan had always been a sickly baby. One should always question whether a baby this sick should be given multiple vaccinations all at one time.
This is from one website and is written by his mother:
“Alan and Francine Yurko’s baby boy, Alan, was born on September 16, 1997. Francine’s pregnancy was severely compromised with refractory and recurrent E. coli infection, gestational diabetes, group b Streptococcal infection, and an overall weight gain of only two pounds. Labor was induced at 35 weeks because of life-threatening oligohydramnios (loss of amniotic fluid). Baby Alan was born grayish blue with respiratory distress and hypoglycemia. He spent the first week of his life in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Special Nurseries, where his parents spent their days with him until his release. A breathing monitor was sought because Baby Alan was rasping and grunting; however, insurance would not cover it, and the doctors assured that it wasn’t necessary.
Over the next six weeks, the family went to weekly pediatrician visits. Baby Alan was seriously jaundiced during his entire neonatal period, and was still rasping and grunting with short periods of apnea. In addition, on November 2, 1997, Alan and Francine rushed the baby to the hospital late in the night because they noticed blood on a burp rag. He was examined by several doctors and nurses, and it was decided that he must have scratched the inside of his nose with his fingernails. Francine pointed out that his fingernails were very trimmed and that, as a preemie, her baby didn’t have such muscle control to have scratched himself. However, the doctors disregarded the concerns, and remarks were made about being “overprotective parents.”
On November 11, 1997, at his weekly pediatrician visit, baby Alan was still not well: He was congested, rasping and grunting, and he had abnormal bowel movements. Despite this and other concerns, such as prematurity, he was injected with six vaccines. Within 24 hours he became lethargic, feverish, fussy. His feeding and sleeping patterns were markedly reduced and changed. The doctor warned that he could be this way for a week or so, but not to worry because itÂ´s “normal” for some babies after their vaccinations. This desensitized the parents to those reactions.
Over the next ten days, baby Alan’s condition did not improve, and he then developed a high-pitched cry. Francine and Alan became concerned, but the doctor said this was normal, and they’d already been chastised for being “overprotective.” On November 23, 1997, they decided that if baby Alan did not improve, they would take him to the pediatrician the next day after Francine returned from work. They never got the chance.”
Alan his father spent over six years in prison for his murder but eventually was freed on appeal when it was found that a combination of adverse reactions to vaccines and the drug Heparin caused his death and it was not SBS.
Dr Mohammed Ali Al-Bayati PhD, DABT, DABVT had this to say:-
My review of the medical evidence in baby Alan’s case clearly shows that he died as result of adverse reactions to vaccines and medications. The tissue bleedings were caused by his treatment of heparin following his respiratory/cardiac arrest. The medical examiner and other physicians who evaluated failed to consider heparin’s ability to cause bleeding in tissue. They also overlooked the role of the adverse reactions to vaccines in the baby’s health problems. Detailed descriptions of the clinical data and other medical literature explaining the pathogenesis of the baby’s illness and supporting my conclusions are presented in this report. Analysis of Causes That Led to the Bleedings in the Subdural Spaces and Other Tissues in Baby Alan Ream YurkoÂ´s Case
In March 2010 another case very similar to the case of baby Alan Yurko goes to court. This is the case of baby T who became ill less than 48 hours after he received a selections of vaccines. His mother Emily says:-
“This story begins August 13th, the day he received his shots. He received his DTaP-IPV-HIB, second dose of Hep B, and oral rotavirus vaccines. Less than 48 hours later, on August 15th, T***** began projectile vomiting. He would not keep much of anything down. I took him in to the local ER, where they rehydrated him and sent him home. He kept vomiting. I took T***** in again on August 18th to the ER. The doctors checked him for pyloric stenosis, which was found to not be ailing him. The doctors suggested switching his formula, that perhaps he was becoming intolerant of the formula he was on. No other explanation was offered as to why he kept vomiting. I followed up with his pediatrician August 21st, and again he could not offer any explanation for his vomiting. I had been feeding him often, and with smaller amounts. He would keep the feeding down for a while, and then sometimes vomit at the next feeding. It was almost always projectile. He was progressively sleeping more and when he was awake, he seemed fussier, almost in pain.
Early morning August 24th, 2009, T***** was at home with his father, Patrick. I work 3rd shift and was at work. T******s older brother and sister were also home sleeping. Patrick called me at work, saying T*******had awoken him with a high-pitched screaming and was acting funny. He said he was pale and crying in a whining fashion. He wasn’t sure what was going on with him. He was later holding him when he stiffened up and arched his back, rolled his eyes and then became limp. 911 was called.
When T****** was admitted into the local ER, he was unresponsive. He was not breathing well on his own and was intubated. Once stabilized, he was transferred across the street to the PICU. T****** heart was not functioning properly and an echocardiogram was performed. It showed diminished heart function. A CT scan was also performed, which showed subdural bleeding in his head. T***** was transferred by helicopter to the University of ***** Hospital.
Once at the University Hospitals, T*****’s father and I were questioned by the Department of Human Services and the ********* Police as to the events which led up to his hospitalization. We hadn’t even been allowed to see him yet and had no idea what was going on with him, yet we were being questioned as to whether we had shaken him. Patrick was at home with the children at the time of his collapse, so he has been the main target of their investigations.
T****** was in very grave condition. The doctors did not expect him to live. They said there was bleeding in his subdural spaces, both acute and sub-acute, or chronic. The doctors stated that his projectile vomiting was a sign that pressure was building in his head, though during the three trips we had made to the doctor that was never discovered. T***** had also had a stroke.They said he was intentionally hurt. Non-accidental Head Trauma, or Shaken Baby Syndrome.”
Like Alan Yurko, baby T was also given Heparin and also became ill within 48 hours of vaccination. Baby T had no bruising, no fractures and no bleeding anywhere else on his body. Baby T survived his injuries and is now in foster care, the older two children were also removed and live with their father.
Emily said in an email:-
“From the first hospital and CT scan he had, they thought SBS, or non-accidental trauma. They never stepped outside of that box. Sure, they tested for bleeding disorders, but that was it. None of the 3 times I took him to the doctor after he began vomiting did they ever think vaccine reaction. I even asked. I had no idea what was going on, only that my other two children had never thrown up like this after their shots. They told me that his vaccines wouldn’t cause that. That since he hadn’t vomited within the first 24 hours, it wasn’t a reaction. I know now how ridiculous that idea is.”
Of course she is right this is ridiculous ,as vaccines were found to be the cause of Alan Yurkos death and he had his reaction the day after his vaccinations. The doctor at the hospital in his case had said “The doctor warned that he could be this way for a week or so, but not to worry because itÂ´s “normal” for some babies after their vaccinations”
I am not medically trained but common sense would tell me that vaccines followed by a combination of the huge number of medications listed for me by his mother, is more like feeding him from a witches cauldron than hospital treatments, especially considering this child was only two months old.
This young mother entrusted her beloved son to the care of hospitals who she believed would help her son. Instead they fed him a massive cocktail of drugs that combined with the lethal ingredients in the vaccines, may have contributed to yet further problems. Then when things became so bad that this small baby was fighting for his life ,they ban her from being with him and accuse her and her partner of shaking him so violently that they caused bleeding to the brain.
It really is time for parents to be believed and the medical profession to take on board that vaccines in some cases can and do cause brain damage.
