SIDS Cause Uncovered: Dr. Greene Reports

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome leads all other kinds of death in wrenching infants from their parents. What constitutes a SIDS cause is still not very well understood. One study uncovered the cause in about 2% of SIDS deaths.

SIDS Cause Uncovered

According to the study results,  some children lack an enzyme necessary to use stored food energy – they lapse into a coma and die if they go too many hours without eating.

Scientists are working on a test for this disorder.

In the meantime, infants with a family history of SIDS should be fed at least every 4 hours. Each time a cause of SIDS is discovered, we come a little closer to preventing this horrible event.
