Crib Death Dropping: A Silver Lining to the Lockdown

First a little background on crib death

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) or crib death (cot death in the UK and Australia) is the sudden, unexplained death of an infant under one year old. It is the leading cause of death for babies between one and 12 months old, according to the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.

Perhaps the best evidence of the infant death and vaccination linkage occurred in Japan.

Crib death in Japan

In Japan, between 1970 and 1974, 37 infants died after DPT vaccinations. Alarmed MDs in one prefecture boycotted the vaccine. The boycott spread to the entire country. The Japanese government decreed that the minimum age for vaccination was to be changed from the American vaccination schedule (2, 4, 6 and 12 months) to two years. In other words, it was illegal to vaccinate a child under the age of two. (1-2)

What happened?

When vaccination under the age of two was banned, the journal Pediatrics described an unusual side effect:

The category “sudden death” … disappeared … when immunization was delayed until a child was 24 months of age…. It is clear that delaying the initial vaccination until a child is 24 months, regardless of the type of vaccine, reduces most of the temporally associated severe adverse events. (3)

Crib death disappeared!

Japan had been 17th in infant mortality when vaccination followed the American schedule. After the ban on vaccinations under age two infant mortality shot up to number 1: the lowest in the world!!

Australian researcher Viera Scheibner, PhD writes:

Vaccination is undoubtedly the single biggest and most preventable cause of cot-death…. The timing of 80% of the cot [crib] deaths occurring between the second and sixth months is due to the cumulative effect of infections, timing of immunisations and some inherent specifics in the baby’s early development. (4-6)

Medical historian Harris L. Coulter, PhD said that SIDS/crib death is a euphemism for vaccination death. (7)

What does this have to do with the coronavirus lockdown?

A few days ago, researchers Mark F. Blaxill and Amy Becker discovered some shocking news with powerful implications. That is: infant deaths have dropped from 700/week to under 500/week from April and throughout May in the US.

That means that over 200 babies per week that were expected to die did not. What saved their lives? Was it a protective effect of school closures? No, because school-age children or adolescents showed no such benefit.

It was simply this—fewer babies were brought to pediatricians for childhood vaccines (given at birth, 2, 4, 6, 12, 18 months, etc.). That resulted in fewer babies dying from crib death or SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). From the paper:

SIDS deaths are one of the two largest causes of death among infants aged 1 month to 1 year. (8)

U.S. mortality rates have declined among young people during the lockdown, especially among infants. These trends have gone largely unnoticed and remain unexplained. 

[Coincidentally] public health officials are bemoaning the sharp decline in infant vaccinations as parents are not taking their infants into pediatric offices for their regular well-baby checks.

… the reduction in expected deaths is highest in infants … the lives of over 200 infants per week were saved during the month of May. Combining the number of lives saved in infants and children aged 1-4, demonstrates a smaller but comparably large and beneficial effect: roughly 145,000 life-years saved among children under 5… (9-10)

Re: crib death, do the benefits outweigh the risks?

We are told that “vaccines save lives.” It’s something repeated so many times most people believe it even though the reverse is true—vaccines kill. But there’s more.

For every child killed by vaccination, there are hundreds or thousands who are injured. This is a biological fact. You cannot inject poisonous toxins into millions of people and either get death or perfect health. When you introduce a stress (physical, emotional or poison) to a biological population you get a bell curve distribution of responses.

At one end of the curve are death and extreme injury such as brain damage. At the other extreme are infants who are apparently unaffected. The vast majority will fall between both extremes; the vast majority will be injured to a greater or lesser degree.

So, how many children are really hurt?

The US government has paid over $4 billion to the parents of vaccine-injured or killed children—so far.

That, however, is a tiny fraction of how many are damaged since most parents don’t know they can seek compensation from the government. And, most parents don’t realize the physical challenges and brain/emotional problems their child has are related to the vaccines they were given. Also, most government courts refuse to even acknowledge the plethora of vaccine injuries that occur.

Let’s look at deaths—and to be conservative, put the number of children killed by vaccination every week at 250. That equals 13,000 deaths a year that could have been saved by not vaccinating babies.

crib death cash payment

They’ll pay you $250,000 if your baby dies and you can prove it’s from the shot. If your child needs constant medical care for the rest of his or her life you’ll get more. Other conditions that have been related to vaccination such as allergies, asthma, autism, dyslexia, learning disorders, processing disorders, obesity, sexual, seizures, low IQ and more are usually not recognized by the vaccine “court.”

How can we address the above question relative to crib death?

Let’s assume vaccines “work” and protect children from “killer” diseases. In the US how many children die from measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, chicken pox, flu, hepatitis B, Hib and all the others put together? A lot less than 13,000, or 5,000 or 1,000 or even 100. Do the benefits outweigh the risks? Yes, the benefits of not vaccinating outweigh the risks of vaccinating.

And remember we are not including the risks (and costs) of allergies, asthma, autism, ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, etc. The US government hasn’t decided they (and so many others) are linked to vaccination—so don’t bother to even ask.

Perhaps this information will fall into the right hands to influence decision-makers to end forced or mandatory vaccination in the US. Or at least one family will stop vaccinating their children and lives will continue to be saved even after the lockdown.

Postscript about crib death: A Tale of Two Countries

The US has the highest infant mortality rate and highest vaccination rate of all industrialized countries. More American children die at birth and in their first year than in any other comparable nation—and more than half of those who survive develop at least one chronic illness. By contrast, Japan (with no vaccine mandates) has the healthiest children and the highest “healthy life expectancy” in the world—and the least vaccinated children of any developed country. (11)

    Thanks Tedd! The info you state in this article is why I didn’t vaccinate my kids in the early ’90’s!

    So what’s the answer already!?

    • Tedd Koren, D.C. Tedd Koren, D.C. on June 30, 2020 at 3:01 pm

      The answer to eliminating nearly all SIDS is to stop vaccinating babies and children (autism too will drop dramatically)

    Great article as always Tedd! You’ve had this thing pegged from the beginning. Apparently the SIDS cases went away in Italy as well. It’s mentioned in the PS of this chilling letter to Robert F Kennedy Jr posted on his Children’s Health Defense website newsletter.

    A letter to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. by Dr. Antonietta M. Gatti

    Dear Robert,

    I don’t know if you are completely aware of the Italian situation. Summarizing everything in a few words, Italy was sold to Big Pharma and has become a huge laboratory where experiments are carried out on the population: adults, children, old, healthy, sick people … it makes no difference, we are all guinea pigs. Now the business, and not just an economic one, is to force 60 million Italians to get vaccinated against COVID, so much so that tens of millions of doses of a product have already been purchased, a product that, in fact, is unknown both in terms of effectiveness and, above all, in terms of side effects. In the meantime, while waiting to receive the goods, a law is being passed according to which everyone, including children, must be vaccinated against the flu (why?), and this in addition to the 10 vaccines that are already mandatory.

    As if that were not enough, many personal freedoms, although guaranteed by the Constitution, have been brutally canceled.

    As you know, for years we have been analyzing vaccines, finding them always dangerously polluted and we are contacted daily by families of children damaged by vaccines.

    Now, in our parliament there is no longer any difference between majority and opposition and, if the situation remains that of today, we will have no escape.

    For some months, a group of highly educated people has formed a political party called MOVIMENTO 3 V (Movement We Want the Truth about Vaccines). Neither Stefano nor I are members of the party but we have been asked to help them from a scientific point of view, and this is what we are doing.

    We would all be very grateful if you could inform your people of what is happening in Italy and if you could write an appeal to encourage the Italians to support the party which, at the present time, is the only possibility of making a voice heard that is different from that of the regime.

    Thank you very much and best regards,


    P.S. During the lockdown we had no “sudden infant death Syndromes”. After the lockdown, baby vaccination started again and we had a dead baby in Turin and another child in two twins died and the girl survived but she is an emergency therapy.

    Thanks Ted
    Unfortunately I live in Canada and will lose my licence to practice if I tell another truth about the dangers of vaccination. I have been fined already. Most of your material I cannot use because it doesn’t fit the restrictive guidelines here. The people on the chiropractic boards here are under the delusion that if the cower to big pharma they will be liked and left alone. I served on our licencing body for 12 years and we are in big trouble. The Chiropractic profession as we know it will be relegated to a minor role by our health authority and our profession doesn’t much care. They are pleading like an animal to not be mistreated and will give up everything. Thanks for standing up for what is left of our great profession.

    LOVE all the blogs!!!! But I have trouble communicating to so many people about the truth behind vaccines – despite the evidence presented. So many patients are just robots and believe blindly what they are told no matter what I say or the information/facts presened. It is quite frustrating!! Along with me trying to explain that a healthy person wearing these masks will do more damage to themselves than any prevention you think you are doing….and then I get called selfish….

    • Tedd Koren, D.C. Tedd Koren, D.C. on July 6, 2020 at 9:01 am

      It takes a lot to undo the fear. I remind people that nearly every parent who is anti-vaccine was once pro-vaccine. Now they have a vaccine-injured child. That’s unfortunately what it takes sometimes.
      The other day I met a woman whose husband told her that they’d never vaccinate their children. He is an attorney who worked as a clerk in vaccine court. He heard the stories.
