Autism

The SIDS, Seratonin and Vaccination Connection

Italian researchers recently discovered that mice who were genetically engineered to overproduce seratonin, died at an early age with symptoms similar to human babies who died from SIDS. The mice died after being able to regulate their body temperature and heart rate, which are symptoms of abnormal seratonin levels. Researchers are hoping to be able to pinpoint infants who are more susceptible to SIDS, which kills approximately 2,700 healthy infants a year and previous studies in SIDS victims have also identified a SIDS/seratonin connection.

Interestingly, there has been ongoing controversy in the anti-vaccine community about the connection between vaccines and increased seratonin levels in children. This controversy has primarily centered around the vaccine/autism connection because autistic children also have high levels of seratonin just like SIDS victims. SomeStudies have shown vaccines to cause a spike in seratonin levels within 12 hours after receiving certain vaccines.

This information should be enough for reasonable doubt as to the safety of infant vaccines and is an excellent argument for simply delaying vaccines until a child is between 2-5 years old or foregoing them altogether as many parents are beginning to do. If you do choose to vaccinate your children, then by all means breastfeed, don’t allow cigarette smoke anywhere near your child and don’t let your child sleep face down or on a non-organic crib mattress for 3 weeks following any vaccine.

  1. “If you do choose to vaccinate your children, then by all means breastfeed, don’t allow cigarette smoke anywhere near your child and don’t let your child sleep face down or on a non-organic crib mattress for 3 weeks following any vaccine.”

    This is actually a big problem that we encounter on a daily basis. It’s hard to convince the young moms to give up smoking and start living a healthy life… at least for the sake of the baby.

    Where is the world coming to.

  2. Is this correct???

    “The mice died after being able to regulate their body temperature and heart rate, which are symptoms of abnormal seratonin levels. ”

    So regulating body temperature and heart rate is a symptom of abnormal seratonin?

    Try proof reading and fact checking!

    The statements made in this article are incorrect! LOW seratonin is the culprit, not high levels.

    Check your facts!

    From Feb 2010: http://www.webmd.com/parenting/baby/news/20100202/low-serotonin-levels-may-be-key-to-sids

    As well, the link between vaccines and autism has been retracted. They do *not* cause autism. http://children.webmd.com/vaccines/news/20100202/study-linking-autism-to-vaccine-retracted

  3. I do not understand this utter obsession with tobacco smoke. Highly dilute smoke, whether from cooking, heating or tobacco, was typical in all households. Smoke is essentially smoke. SIDS spiked long after smoke (in any of its forms) was a typical feature of households. Please explain?

  4. I’m afraid John is correct. Not only on webMD but several other sites say suggest low seratonin would be the cause. Still it is very interesting stuff ad I loved your post regardless… and I love mice!
