Crib Death Gene

Researchers Link Mutant Gene to Crib Deaths in Blacks - Los Angeles Times

Having experinced the agony of crib death as a teenager, when my baby foster sister died, I have been terrified as a parent it could happen to my children. I would wake up late in the morning, (8 or so) and if my child was not awake, I would panic and go and check. Often I would shake them awake at night if I thought they were too still. Death of an infant marks a person.

I hope that this development leads to an understanding and treatment for crib death that will alleviate some of the pain and suffering involved with this silent killer.
