Sounds about right. It doesn't say smoking was the sole cause, but does provide enough evidence to justify including it as an attribute of the mother.

Could have been SIDS caused by recent vaccines

Even if vaccination played a part, there were so many negative factors listed in the story that it is probably appropriate to blame a gestalt.

The thing is that these stupid smokers will claim that smoking does not cause SIDS when there is a strong positive relationship between a mother's prenatal smoking and SIDS, between a mother's postnatal smoking and SIDS, a child's exposure to SHS and SIDS. In essence, it is hard not to see SHS as a causal agent in SIDS. Any mother who reads this and continues to smoke has no one but herself to blame when the baby dies. After seeing this, a mother who continues to smoke becomes nothing but a baby killer. I feel sorry for the mother. She was taken in by Big Tobacco and by people like Linda saying that she smoked in the hospital with a baby in her arms and by other posters who claim that smoking leads to longevity. Plain and simple mothers, if you continue to smoke- you are a baby killer.

These results tell us that most SIDS deaths are due to factors like sleeping on their stomachs, cigarette smoke exposure, and mild respiratory infections.

In other words, CDC is telling us that SHS is a causal agent in SIDS. Mothers who continue to smoke after this are baby killers.

I'm just sorry YOUR mother didn't smoke when you were a baby.

I wasn't the least surprised that your mom smoked meth and itinerant sailors when she was carrying you.

Or at least you can't see that it is in the darkness there. Whatever. At least tie in some substance for your flamewarfare.

A conspiracy theory website? Really? You got any relatives in AZ?

We certainly repeat our mistakes by ignoring those who try to warn us. Anyone who tinks vaccines don't cause all kinds of harm are simpltons who can't think objectively.
