Shaken Baby Syndrome
Shaken Baby Syndrome often just a cover story for
children who are brain damaged by vaccines
Thursday, February 14, 2013 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
(NaturalNews) Child abuse comes in many forms, and can result in serious and
permanent health conditions such as Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS), a type of brain
damage that typically afflicts children younger than one-year-old. But the cause
of such abuse is not always physical trauma as many experts claim --
pediatricians, doctors, and government officials routinely abuse children by
injecting them with toxic vaccines, which are often the real cause of SBS and
other brain damage-related conditions inappropriately blamed on physical abuse
allegedly caused by parents and guardians.
It is not something the mainstream media likes to talk about, or that mainstream
health authorities will likely ever admit to, but vaccine-induced brain damage
is prevalent in today's society, especially as an increasing number of vaccines
are added to the childhood vaccination schedule. And based on the available
evidence, as well as many years' worth of lengthy investigation into the matter
by prominent truth-seekers, SBS in particular appears quite often to be nothing
more than a cover condition for brain damage caused by vaccine injections.
SBS, a convenient cover for vaccine-induced
The concept of SBS as a legitimate, trauma-induced form of brain damage was
first popularized back in the 1970s when it was hypothesized that babies with
serious brain injuries that could not be directly linked to external signs of
cranial trauma must have been shaken violently by another person. Physical
child abuse was essentially
declared to be the sole cause of SBS, and eventually became the go-to diagnosis
when dealing with inexplicable types of brain damage observed in children.
As time went on; however, those paying attention to the situation began to
observe a curious pattern with SBS and its relation to
vaccine injections. Many
children who had been developing normally and growing at a healthy rate prior to
receiving routine childhood vaccines, for instance, suddenly stopped progressing
and their health actually began to deteriorate. And typically after the second
and third round of injections, some children began to develop symptoms similar
to those commonly associated with SBS.
directly linked to causing SBS
In a report published in a 1998 issue of Nexus Magazine, Dr. Viera
Scheibner, Ph.D., wrote extensively about the connection between SBS and
vaccines. Through her research, Dr. Scheibner found that multivalent vaccines in
particular, which contain antigens for two or more diseases as opposed to just
one antigen for a single disease, were closely associated with causing
encephalitis and other forms of
brain damage. Such vaccines included DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, and
tetanus) and the five-in-one pentavalent vaccine for diphtheria, tetanus,
acellular pertussis, hepatitis B, and inactivated polio.
Since many of the symptoms associated with vaccine-induced brain damage directly
mirror those of SBS, Dr. Scheibner and others became convinced that not all
cases of SBS were caused by physically-induced child abuse. They also began to
call out the medical community for its reckless blanketing of all SBS cases as
having been definitively caused by physical abuse, especially when solid
evidence was emerging to suggest otherwise.
"[V]accines like the pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine are actually used to
induce encephalo-myelitis (experimental allergic encephalomyelitis) in
laboratory animals," writes Dr. Scheibner in her paper, referencing a study
published in the American Journal of Pathology back in 1980. "This
(condition) is characterized by brain swelling and hemorrhaging of an extent
similar to that caused by mechanical injuries," she adds, referencing another
study published in the Japanese Journal of Medical Science & Biology
several years later in 1985.
Many parents of vaccine-injured
children falsely accused of child abuse
What this suggests, of course, is that the steady rise in SBS cases over the
past several decades is not necessarily due solely to a corresponding increase
in child abuse by parents and caretakers, but also to an increase in vaccine
reactions. But the medical establishment continues to ignore this evidence,
which has resulted in countless parents being falsely accused by the state of
abusing their children
following rounds of vaccines that left them injured with SBS-type symptoms.
"Many infants who suffer the so-called 'shaken baby syndrome' may be victims of
undiagnosed vaccine damage," adds Dr. Scheibner. "Ever since mass vaccination of
infants began, reports of serious brain, cardiovascular, metabolic and other
injuries started filling pages of medical journals."
This is not to say that all abuse-related cases of SBS are false, but rather
that at least some of them are being misdiagnosed when vaccines are the real
culprit. In fact, package inserts for many vaccines, including the hepatitis B
and pertussis vaccines, very clearly explain that neurological conditions such
as paraesthesia and paralysis, including the infamous Guillain-Barre syndrome
and multiple sclerosis, can all arise in response to vaccine injections.
But rather than properly investigate the safety of vaccines, the American
justice system, which is heavily influenced by the pharmaceutical and vaccine
industries, often blames the parents of vaccine-injured children for harming
their children. These same parents may be incarcerated for supposedly inflicting
damage on their children, and may even have their children taken away from them
by Child Protective Services (CPS).
This is precisely what happened to a family from South Dakota whose
prematurely-born son died just a few weeks after birth as a result of vaccine
damage. According to reports, the child, whose name was Cameron, received
several rounds of vaccine injections just after birth in accordance with
recommendations from the family's doctor, but quickly developed serious
complications. Not long after receiving the three-in-one Pentacel vaccine (DTaP,
IPV, and Hib), and just one day after receiving the hepatitis B vaccine, Cameron
Not only did Cameron's parents have to deal with the grief and pain of losing
their son, but they also had to deal with false accusations that they were
somehow responsible for their child's death. The system tried to claim that
Cameron's parents shook him to death, which caused his brain to hemorrhage, and
subsequently proceeded to kidnap Cameron's twin brother Dalton and hand him over
to CPS. And no acknowledgment was ever made during this process that vaccines
could have had anything to do with Cameron's death.
Several years later, medical experts finally confirmed that vaccines, and not
physical abuse, were the most likely cause of Cameron's death, and Dalton was
eventually taken out of the hands of the state and returned to his family. But
it took many years of fighting the system for the family to achieve some kind of
justice in the matter, and many other families have since had to endure similar
abuse by a government that refuses to recognize the dangers of childhood
SBS scam continues due to lack
of legitimate, long-term vaccine safety studies
Unfortunately, the SBS scam, which protects the vaccine industry from liability
for vaccine-induced health damage and death, is unlikely to go anywhere anytime
soon. This is due in large part to the fact that long-term safety studies for
vaccines are virtually non-existent, making it extremely difficult for parents
of vaccine-injured children to defend themselves against child abuse claims.
"Few published studies on vaccine effects include before-and-after studies of
immune parameters or brain function studies such as electroencephalograms, or
long-term safety monitoring," says Dr. Harold E. Buttram, M.D., about the lack
of proper scientific inquiry into the harmful side effects of vaccines.
"Inadequate consideration has been given to the additive or synergistic adverse
effects of multiple simultaneous vaccines."
