It is increasingly common for parents of children with one or more of the triad of symptoms associated with so-called “Shaken Baby Syndrome” (SBS) to be automatically accused of committing child abuse. But often missing from this causal equation is any investigation into the vaccinations that children diagnosed with SBS received prior to developing this very serious condition, a condition that copious scientific research has shown can, indeed, be caused by vaccines.
Writing for VacTruth.com, investigative journalist Christina England explores this issue in a recent piece, looking at an array of both former and recently published studies involving children who developed cerebral edemas, a type of swelling or inflammation inside the brain, following routine vaccinations. England looks at a 2010 review published by Dr. Lucija Tomljenovic, for instance, which contains hundreds of cases dating back to the early 1980s in which children developed encephalitis or meningitis following vaccination.
As we covered back in January, Dr. Tomljenovic’s extensive research into the subject of vaccine-induced brain damage has unveiled a vast conspiracy, of sorts, in which governments have been exposed for deliberately covering up data linking vaccines to the types of symptoms commonly attributed with SBS. These links, of course, have also been observed by many other researchers, including a handful of doctors and researchers in India who published a paper in 2012 exposing the DTP (diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus) vaccine as a cause of encephalopathy.
But the rabbit hole goes deeper, as papers published back in the 1990s and even earlier have identified vaccines as a probable cause of SBS. In a 1998 paper entitled “Shaken Baby Syndrome: The Vaccination Link,” for instance, Dr. Viera Scheibner addresses a problem that at the time was only just beginning to explode into the epidemic it is today — parents being falsely accused of abusing their children when vaccines are what actually caused their SBS.
“Some time ago I started getting requests from lawyers or the accused parents themselves for expert reports,” writes Dr. Scheibner about how falsely-accused parents sought her out for expert analysis into the real cause of their children’s SBS diagnoses. “A close study of the history of these cases revealed something distinctly sinister: in every single case, the symptoms appeared shortly after the baby’s vaccinations.”
How many parents are being falsely accused of abusing their vaccine-damaged children?
Since that time, many others in the field have also come to the same conclusions as Dr. Scheibner, as it is now clear that many cases of SBS lack any evidence of physically-induced trauma, which clearly points to another culprit. A more recent study published in the journal Clinical Medicine Research, for example, found that many of the symptoms attributed to SBS are actually caused by a vaccine-induced autoimmune reaction in certain genetically susceptible children.
“In his paper, Dr. Innis outlines that the response to antigenic stimulation damaged the beta cells in the pancreas (of the children) causing hypoinsulinaemia (unusually low levels of insulin in the blood), which inhibited the cellular uptake of vitamin C, resulting in liver dysfunction, failure of carboxylation of the vitamin K dependent proteins, resulting in hemorrhages and fractures associated with the triad,” writes England about the study.

Thus, it is wholly irresponsible for the conventional medical profession to simply blame all cases of SBS on child abuse when it is clear, based on observation and thorough analysis, that in many cases, some other factor is the real cause.
