    According to Mayo Clinic, many in the medical community suspected this phenomenon could be caused by a defect in the part of the brain that controls arousal from sleep and breathing. The theory was that if the infant stopped breathing during sleep, the defect would keep the child from startling or waking up.

    Insane, the baby quite literally doesn't "remember" it needs to breathe during sleep

  • Really awesome news 馃檹

    Incredible findings by an incredibly determined doctor

    though it seems like this may only cover a portion of SIDS cases. It is such a widely diagnosed cause of death that it may have been ascribed to incidents in which this protein malfunction wasn鈥檛 the culprit. Still some work to be done i鈥檓 sure

    A great story overall

    鈥淲hile safe sleep practices are still important for protecting infants, many children whose parents took every precaution still died from SIDS. These parents were left with immense guilt, wondering if they could have prevented their baby鈥檚 death.

    Dr. Carmel Harrington, the lead researcher for the study, was one of these parents. Her son unexpectedly and suddenly died as an infant 29 years ago. In an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), Harrington explained what she was told about the cause of her child鈥檚 death.

    鈥楴obody could tell me. They just said it's a tragedy. But it was a tragedy that didn't sit well with my scientific brain.鈥欌
