A new study published in Current Medicine and Chemistry titled, "Sudden infant death following hexavalent vaccination: a neuropathologic study," lends support for the long theorized link between an ever-expanding number of infant vaccines and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
The fact that the peak age for SIDS is 2–4 months, which coincides with the introduction of 11 shots containing 16 vaccines (within the US immunization schedule), is so obvious a cause for concern, that even the CDC has been compelled to address the seeming 'coincidence' directly:
"From 2 to 4 months old, babies begin their primary course of vaccinations. This is also the peak age for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). The timing of these two events has led some people to believe they might be related...With babies receiving multiple doses of vaccines during their first year of life and SIDS being the leading cause of death in babies between one month and one year of age, CDC has led research studies to look for possible linkage."
Unsurprisingly, the CDC, whose pro-vaccine agenda is glaringly oblivious to the 100+ documented serious, unintended adverse effects of vaccines as evidenced in the biomedical literature, claims extensive research they commissioned has found vaccines do not cause SIDS. Despite the CDC's dismissal, infant mortality rates are highest among countries that administer the most vaccines within the most vulnerable developmental window of infanthood. A 2011 study published in Human & Experimental Toxicology, for instance, observed that "The US childhood immunization schedule specifies 26 vaccine doses for infants aged less than 1 year—the most in the world—yet 33 nations have lower IMRs [infant mortality rates]." They found that across the 34 nations analyzed "a high statistically significant correlation between increasing number of vaccine doses and increasing infant mortality rates, with r = 0.992 (p = 0.0009)."
Also, a recent study published in Vaccine titled, "Co-administration of live measles and yellow fever vaccines and inactivated pentavalent vaccines is associated with increased mortality compared with measles and yellow fever vaccines only" found multiple infant vaccines dramatically increased the risk of mortality in a trial conducted in the West African country of Guinea-Bissau.
While the 6-antigen hexavalent vaccine most recently linked to SIDS is presently only licensed in Europe, there are a number of 'mandatory' multi-dose vaccines in the US immunization schedule -- including (DTaP, MMR), and which brings up the question: are the risks for adverse reactions – including lethal ones -- amplified in multi-dose vaccines in comparison to single dose forms?
There are also a wide range of vaccines in development or already on the market, which are being included or will be included eventually on top of an ever-expanding immunization schedule:
a) Pentacel (DTaP, ActHIB & IPV),
b) Comvax (Hep B & PedvaxHIB),
c) Pediarix (DTaP, IPV, & Hep B),
d) ProQuad (MMR-Varicella),
e) ActHIB - HIB & Tetanus Toxoid, or HIB & DaPT,
f) Hiberix (HIB & Tetanus Toxoid),
g) PedvaxHIB (HIB & meningococcal serotype B antigen),
h) Menhibrix (meningococcal grps C & Y, HIB & Tetanus Toxoid)
i) Menactra (meningococcal grps A, C, Y, W-135 & Diphtheria Toxoid)
j) Prevnar-13 (13 strains of streptococcus pneumonia & Diphteria Protein)
Dr. Larry Palevsky, MD, has pointed out that
"Even if vaccines only purportedly contain 1 bacterial or viral antigen (as in Varicella & Hepatitis A), there are multiple antigens inside of them making them multivalent in and of themselves. And, they are most often given at the same time as other vaccines, making these single antigen vaccines into multivalent injections.
They can consist of bacterial, viral or even yeast antigens, as well as known environmental toxins, proteins, & other contaminant bacteria, viruses, and yeast. By definition, all vaccines, in and of themselves, are multivalent.
Despite the fact that the Varicella vaccine contains only 1 reported viral antigen, the injection of this vaccine is still an injection into the body of multiple antigens, i.e., sucrose, hydrolyzed gelatin, sodium chloride, monosodium glutamate (MSG), sodium phosphate dibasic, potassium phosphate monobasic, potassium chloride, and residual components of the MRC-5 cells on which the varicella virus was isolated, including DNA, protein, and trace quantities of monobasic, EDTA, neomycin, and fetal bovine serum. http://www.merck.com/product/usa/pi_circulars/v/varivax/varivax_pi.pdf.
The injection of the Hepatitis A vaccine, despite only containing 1 reported viral antigen, also contains multiple antigens, i.e., aluminum hydroxide, amino acids, disodium phosphate, mono potassium phosphate, neomycin sulphate, polysorbate-20, potassium chloride, sodium chloride, and water. http://www.gsk.ca/english/docs-pdf/product-monographs/Havrix.pdf.
Here are the known pathogenic ingredients in the vaccine schedule:
DaPT - 3 bacteria
HIB - 1 bacterium
Prevnar -13 - 13 bacteria
Menactra - 4 bacteria
Hepatitis B - 1 virus
Hepatitis A - 1 virus
Polio - 3 viruses
Influenza - 3 viruses
MMR - 3 viruses
Varicella - 1 virus
Rotavirus - 5 viruses
Gardisil - 4 viruses
The Pentacel combination vaccine (DTaP, Polio, HIB), given to children at 2, 4, 6, & 15-18 months contains the ActHIB vaccine (HIB & tetanus), along with a multitude of other bacterial (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus) & viral (3 polio) antigens. The Comvax combination vaccine (Hep B + HIB), given to infants 3 times within their first year of life, contains the Hepatitis B viral antigen & Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast antigen, along with the Pedvax HIB vaccine (HIB bacterium + Neisseria meningococcal serotype B bacterial antigen).
The human immune system does not play favorites with injected antigens. In other words, a non-bacterial or non-viral vaccine antigen is responded to equally by the immune system, as any of the bacterial and viral antigens."
Given the number of 'antigenic' exposures in vaccines, singularly, and in multi-dose form, the number of possible immunological reactions in newborns is simply mind-blowing – especially considering just how little we know about the immune system, the developing brain and infant physiology.
Hexavalent Vaccine and SIDS: Looking at the Studies
Given the weight of evidence linking infant vaccines to higher mortality, this new paper's findings should not be of great surprise.
