66. Why I have suspected SIDS is not real
1) because I never heard of children dying in their sleep when my kids were young. It seems like something that suddenly came up inthe 80s.

2) Because a woman who lived near me in upstate NY had supposedly lost 7 or 8 children to SIDS, was featured in medical journals for a long time, and then was proved to have killed all of them via suffocation.

3) because I think on the rare occassions when children do die in their sleep that they have some other disorder than a catch-all we call "SIDS"

4) I think that in some cases (how many I can't even guess, but a small number) someone hurt the baby (by accident or on purpose) and tried to pass it off as SIDS. Sometimes maybe a caretaker or sibling did it and the parents don't even know the truth. Human situations that happen more often than anyone thinks ...

That's what I had on my mind.
