"The role of vaccines, particularly the whole-cell pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine can be understood when it is realised that this vaccine contains a variable and uncontrollable amount of endotoxin that is injected and absorbed, unaltered, into the blood. It does not even go first to the liver where attempts to detoxify it could be made. If an infant happens to be particularly sensitive to endotoxin when the vaccine is injected, brain damage or death can result....It should be now apparent that any infant with gastrointestinal problems - abnormal organisms, intestinal parasites, loose bowel motions resulting from the use of antibiotics, and malabsorption of food (including lactose intolerance) - is liable, when further stressed, to produce endotoxin and this can end in a SIDS....If the Vitamin C status of an infant is borderline, the administration of a vaccine, particularly (but not only) pertussis vaccine, can result in endotoxaemia. This results in a severe reaction to the vaccine, a tremendous increase in the need for Vitamin C, and the precipitation of some of the signs and/or symptoms of acute scurvy. The onset of this may be so rapid that the classical signs of scurvy may be absent. Sudden death, sudden unconsciousness, sudden shock or sudden spontaneous bruising and haemorrhage (including brain and retinal haemorrhages) may occur. Haemorrhage and bruising in such cases can be wrongly attributed to the battered baby syndrome."---Dr Kalokerinos MD (Medical Pioneer of the 20th century p186
"A cold, a viral infection, or anything that disturbs immune responses can result in subtle changes in the gram negative bacterial flora of the the gut, stimulating them to produce endotoxin. This is absorbed into the blood stream, not adequately detoxified, and results in inflammatory responses in the mucous membrane linings of the middle ear............ that endotoxin is the initial cause of the inflammatory response in acute otitis media............ Dr Robert Reisinger in America had first alerted me to this group of substances and their relationship to SIDS......The reason why proper breast-feeding provides a known and large amount of protection against otitis media becomes obvious. Breast-feeding tends to prevent the overgrowth of abnormal forms of intestinal organisms that tend, under certain conditions, to produce endotoxin........Finally, there are two substances that are known to be effective as rapid detoxifiers of endotoxin - Vitamin C and erythromycin -they are both in Archies triple injection. The relationship between SIDS, sudden unexplained shock, sudden unexplained unconsciousness, and otitis media is worthy of consideration. If endotoxin is the cause of otitis and also the cause of SIDS, sudden unexplained unconsciousness and unexplained shock as I now know (at least there is a association), then otitis media should be found in a significant number of SIDS cases. That this is so is clearly demonstrated in a number of reported studies. "---Dr Kalokerinos MD (p311 Medical Pioneer)
20 years ago, the research was quite conclusive about
breast-fed babies. They didn't usually die of SIDS. There are records of some
"breastfed" babies dying, but if you look at them, those babies also received
supplementary formula bottles. Anyone who has read my paper will know that one
formula bottle will create an alkaline environment, and also raises the babies
basal temperature by over 1 degree for nearly two weeks. One bottle of formula
wreaks such intestinal havoc that it puts these babies bacterial flora into a
completely different catagory to totally breastfed babies.
A breastfed baby has an acid ph in the gut, and its basal temperature is lower and the bacterial flora is totally different Bottlefed baby have alkaline guts, 1,000 ties more E.Coli and different bacterial balance, no breastmilk immune system and a higher body temperature. Bottle fed babies also sleep much longer, and are typically "zonked" after a bottle. Put this together with sleeping on the stomach. Stomach sleeping babies get much hotter than back-sleeping babies because there is less skin area exposed for heat exchange.
The one thing in babies, which can and does respond dramatically to heat, is E.Coli. The outer coating is toxic, but normally trapped by the liver and dealt with. Humans are exquisitely sensitive to this endotoxin, and the group of babies that have the highest numbers (one thousand times more actually) are bottle-fed babies. E.Coli replicates in heat and alkaline conditions. It is a heat-loving putrefactive bacteria which thrives on formula and in heat - the hotter, the better......breast-milk not only keeps e.coli at bay, and has compounds which fight it, breast milk switches on and educates the immune system of the gut, which is the key barrier between the environment and the body. A bottle-fed baby is not only way behind the 8-ball, it is hotter, has one thousand times the number of E.Coli than breast-fed babies, and is 'deprived of the maternally supplied defences against E.Coli. And even so, most of these babies do not die of cot death. Hilary Butler
"Capps R.B.et al (1955) stated DPT caused temporary liver dysfunction in infants similar to that caused by viral hepatitis. Anser S and Habig W (1990) showed DPT vaccine endotoxin significantly disrupts P-450, and other microsomal and cytosolic enzyme activities (which detoxify endotoxin) in mice. Since gastrointestinal E.coli is detoxified by the liver, any suppression of the RE (Reticulo endothelial) system by vaccines places a baby at risk of death by endotoxin effect. Rook, G.A.W (1997) details other ways vaccines disrupt the immune system."---Hilary Butler
