For generations, the medical profession has told grieving parents that the sudden death of their infant was simply unexplainable and vastly unpreventable. Told there was nothing that could have been done to avoid the tragedy, new parents were left with empty hearts and empty answers.
Sadly, between 2,500 and 4,500 infants in the US fall victim each year to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). But, discoveries made decades ago may provide the clues that modern medicine, for all its advances, has chosen to ignore: Something as attainable as vitamin C could save many lives.
Dr. Archie Kalokerinos, a family physician, virtually eliminated infant mortality among patients in New South Wales, Australia, after moving his practice there in 1967. But few have heard of Dr. Kalokerinos and his discovery that ascorbic acid, commonly referred to as vitamin C, can eliminate SIDS. That’s because his findings were repeatedly rejected by medical journals.
