Rapid Response:

The Cot Death Cover Up

While babies do die face up or face down on many types of bedding,
they tend NOT to die when that bedding has been decontaminated from molds
that potentiate certain chemicals into fearsome neurotoxic gasses.

Dr Sprotts demonstration of the manner in which SIDS is reduced by
utilization of an impermeable "BabeSafe" plastic membrane to cover old
mattresses to protect infants from volatolized neurotoxic mycotoxins is
the critical clue in the pathogenesis of SIDS that is being covered up by
a "Wall of Intransigence".

Medial denial of Barry Marshalls identification of the association
between H Pylori and ulcers was a demonstration of the shocking failure of
researchers to respond to evidence and relevant clues of etiology.
The similar failure to recognize the efficacy and value of Dr Sprotts
spectacular demonstration of the LACK of Cot Death under controlled
circumstances constitutes criminal medical malfeasance.
Have the proponents of "Evidence Based Medicine" completely lost the
capacity to respond to evidence?
