Many parents have been charged with murder for allegedly shaking their babies to death, but medical evidence suggests that vaccinations are to blame in a large number of these cases.

Shaken Baby Syndrome The diagnosis “shaken baby syndrome” (SBS) has been widely accepted for over 30 years, but recent evidence from biomechanical and clinical observational studies questions the validity of the syndrome.

link In the comments section Biomechanic Dr Chris Van Ee, of Wayne State University in Detroit, said: “Shaken baby syndrome - as described as an adult shaking a child holding him by the torso with the head flopping resulting in bleeding of the brain and retinal haemorrhage - is fundamentally flawed from a biomechanics perspective. It's not valid. There's nothing to support it.”

Dr Pat Lantz, a pathologist in North Carolina, looked at the eyes of 1,500 corpses for more than two years from 2004, and said a sixth of cases had bleeding in the back of the eye.

If bleeding is more common than once thought, a pillar of the shaken baby syndrome case is weakened.

So flimsy is the evidence to support shaken baby syndrome that the diagnosis has been disallowed in two states in America, and in Canada there are calls for 142 SBS cases to be reviewed.

In 2001, Geddes showed that most of these babies do not have traumatic tearing of the nerve fibres in their brains; rather, they are starved of oxygen. Lantz, in 2006, showed that bleeding behind the eyes also occurs in babies with other, natural diseases.

Challenging an Assumption A pathologist questions shaken baby syndrome.

link "It doesn't exist," contends Dr. John Plunkett, a Minnesota pathologist who began openly questioning shaken-baby following the 1997 involuntary manslaughter conviction of British nanny Louise Woodward, the case that put SBS on the map. "You can't cause the injuries said to be caused by shaking, by shaking. ... That's just nonsense."

The Shaken Baby Syndrome by Ronald Uscinski, M.D.
Conclusions: Clinical observation and scientific experimentation and verification should complement one another. More than 30 years after the original hypothesis of shaken baby syndrome, this does not appear to have happened.

With regard to treatment of cranio-cerebral trauma, the differentiation between accidental and inflicted injury is of limited practical importance: injuries are injuries. For social purposes, however, the distinction is critical.

While the desire to protect children is laudable, it must be balanced against the effects of seriously harming those who are accused of child abuse solely on the basis of what is, at best, unsettled science.

ABSTRACT Shaken baby syndrome (SBS), characterized by the triad of subdural haemorrhage, retinal haemorrhage, and encephalopathy, was initially based on the hypothesis that shaking causes tearing of bridging veins and bilateral subdural bleeding. It remains controversial. New evidence since SBS was first defined three decades ago needs to be reviewed. Neuropathology shows that most cases do not have traumatic axonal injury, but hypoxic–ischaemic injury and brain swelling. This may allow a lucid interval, which traumatic axonal injury will not. Further, the thin subdural haemorrhages in SBS are unlike the thick unilateral space-occupying clots of trauma. They may not originate from traumatic rupture of bridging veins but from vessels injured by hypoxia and haemodynamic disturbances, as originally proposed by Cushing in 1905. Biomechanical studies have repeatedly failed to show that shaking alone can generate the triad in the absence of significant neck injury. Impact is needed and, indeed, seems to be the cause of the majority of cases of so-called SBS. Birth-related subdural bleeds are much more frequent than previously thought and their potential to cause chronic subdural collections and mimic SBS remains to be established.

link In the UK, a review of nearly 300 cases in which parents were convicted of killing their young children has identified 28 where there was "sufficient cause for concern to warrant further consideration", the Attorney General, Lord Goldsmith, has told Parliament. A further 89 cases of "shaken baby syndrome" will be reconsidered in the light of a judgment from the Court of Appeal expected in 2005, Lord Goldsmith promised. Three pending prosecutions have already been abandoned "on the grounds that it was not safe to proceed".

Alan Yurko, falsely accused of shaking his baby to death - challenge and offer

Jury: Father didn't shake his son
Published in The Courier-News 9/2/1998
Staff Writer
A jury on Tuesday cleared a Warren County man who was accused of inflicting brain damage on his son by shaking the then 5-month-old baby. William Carey was charged in March 1996 with second-degree aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child a week after his son suffered seizures and was rushed to the hospital. Doctors at Robert Wood Johnson University Medical Center detected hemorrhages behind the 5-month-old boy`s eyes and determined the cause was shaken-baby syndrome. The baby had received an immunization earlier that morning, which defense attorneys argued was the cause of the seizures and the bleeding behind the boy`s eyes.

"I think the weight of the world was lifted from the Carey`s shoulders," defense attorney Joe Krakora said outside the courthouse in Flemington on Tuesday after the 12-day trial. "They`re extremely relieved and tremendously grateful." Carey, a former Union County police officer who used to live in Readington, now resides in Washington Township in Warren County. The son, who is nearly 3, is developmentally disabled. It took the Superior Court jury nearly two full days to reach a decision. Jurors returned to the Judge Marilyn Rhine Herr`s courtroom three times to watch videotaped testimony from witnesses from both the prosecution and the defense. Assistant Prosecutor Marcia Crowe could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

The baby was born in October 1995, and was first brought to the hospital on Dec. 11, 1995. He was treated for vomiting and irritability, and his pediatrician determined that the boy had a nonspecific viral condition and an allergy to milk. He was brought back to the hospital on March 22, 1996, by paramedics after he suffered a seizure. The boy had received an inoculation a few hours earlier, which witnesses for both sides agreed could trigger a seizure in babies who had suffered head trauma. Vomiting, lethargy, increasing head circumference, seizures, apnea and coma are all symptoms of shaken-baby syndrome. According to medical records, the boy was demonstrating some of those symptoms during his December 1995 visit to the hospital. But Krakora argued that these symptoms also could have been a sign that the boy had some other neurological problem that wasn`t picked up by doctors.
