The Shaken Baby Syndrome Myth
renamed "Abusive Head Trauma" or "Non-Accidental Injury"



* SBS began as an unproven theory and medical opinions, now discredited by biomechanical engineering studies
* No DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS done to eliminate other causes, abuse assumed without evidence
* Shaken Baby diagnostic symptoms not caused by shaking
* Child protective agencies snatch children, destroy families based on medical accusations without proof of wrong-doing
*Poor or deceptive police investigations, falsified reports, perjured testimony threaten legal rights, due process
* Prosecutors seek "victory", over justice; defense attorneys guilty of ineffective counsel, ignorance, lack of effort
* Care-takers threatened, manipulated, in order to force plea bargains, false confessions
* A fractured criminal justice system--a big piece for the rich, a small piece for the poor, and none for alleged SBS cases.

SUBJECT: SBS=Barlow's Disease Variant (Accelerated Infantile Scurvy-Endotoxemia)

World-Renowned Vitamin C expert, Dr. C.A.B. Clemetson Says: SBS=Barlow's Disease Variant (Accelerated Infantile Scurvy-Endotoxemia)
Infection or vaccine-accelerated Vitamin C deficiency-endotoxemia: Barlow's disease variant presents with symptoms misdiagnosed as Shaken Baby Syndrome

C. Alan B. Clemetson MD, F.R.C.O.G., F.R.C.S.(C), F.A.C.O.G. (31 October 1923 – 30 August 2006) was a medical doctor, scientist and researcher. Throughout his life, he made numerous important scientific and medical discoveries and contributions, including publishing over 48 medical papers and a three-volume monograph on Vitamin C.

Dr. Clemetson was born in Canterbury, England, attending schools in England and graduating from Oxford University in 1948 with a Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery (B.M., B.Ch) degree. After graduation, he became a Royal Air Force medical officer for two years, and then returned to Oxford University in 1950 for a MA degree. In 1950, as a research assistant in Obstetrics, he started to pursue research into preeclamptic toxaemia and started to publish medical papers in 1953. In 1951-1952, he was named a Nichols Research Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine. From 1952 through 1956, he served at various hospitals in England as the House Surgeon of either Obstetrics or Gynecology, and, in 1956, became a lecturer in Obstetrics and Gynecology at London University.

Dr. Clemetson immigrated to Saskatoon, Canada (1958 -1961), becoming an assistant professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Saskatoon. Then, in 1961, he moved to California and assumed a position as an assistant professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of California Medical Center in San Francisco, and a lecturer in the Department of Maternal and Child Health with the University of California, Berkeley.

In 1967, he assumed a teaching position (1967–1972) as an assistant professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology with the State University of New York, Brooklyn. He also became the Director of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department (1967-1981) at the Methodist Hospital of Brooklyn, New York. In addition (1972-1981), he served as a professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Downstate Medical Center of the State University of New York, Brooklyn, New York.

Dr. Clemetson in 1981 moved to New Orleans, Louisiana, and became a professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Tulane University School of Medicine, and the Director of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Huey P. Long Memorial Hospital, Pineville, Louisiana. He also became a consultant in Gynecology for the Department of Surgery, Veterans Administration Hospital, Pineville, Louisiana.

Upon his retirement in 1991, as a Professor Emeritus, Tulane University School of Medicine, Dr. Clemetson, with his experience and knowledge of vitamin C and histamine, devoted his remaining years to writing and publishing medical papers concerning the “Shaken-Baby Syndrome.”

Medical hypotheses

In 1964, Dr. Clemetson conducted and published the first studies[1] concerning ascorbic acid (vitamin C) metabolism and depletion in preeclampsia. Additional studies concerning the oxidative stress in the pathogenesis of preeclampsia have also been published, noting that ascorbate concentrations were 50% lower in preeclampsia relative to normal pregnancy plasma.[2] Preeclampsia is a toxic disorder producing high blood pressure, bloating, weight gain, vision changes, nausea or vomiting, and protein in the urine that typically occurs only during pregnancy and the postpartum period; and affecting the mother and the unborn baby. Preeclampsia and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are a leading global cause of maternal and infant illness and death. Preeclampsia usually occurs after 20 weeks' gestation during the middle or late stages of pregnancy. Preeclampsia, Pregnancy Induced Hypertension (PIH), and toxemia are closely related conditions. HELLP Syndrome and eclampsia, which cause seizures, are other manifestations of the same syndrome. [3]

After Dr. Clemetson’s retirement from teaching in 1991, he conceived and published four medical hypotheses. In 1999, he published “The Key Role of Histamine in the Development of Atherosclerosis and Coronary Heart Disease;”[4] in 2002, he published “Barlow's Disease;”[5] and in 2004, he published "Capillary Fragility as a Cause of Substantial Hemorrhage in Infants," [6] and also published Elevated Blood Histamine Caused by Vaccinations and Vitamin C Deficiency May Mimic the Shaken Baby Syndrome.[7]

In 1980, [8] he became the first person to conduct human studies on the relationship of histamine and vitamin C. This study demonstrated an inverse relationship of blood histamine levels with the levels of ascorbic acid in the human body. Two additional human studies in 1992 [9] and 1996 [10] not only confirmed Clemetson’s findings, but also determined that the consumption of 2,000 mg/day of vitamin C for two weeks was needed to significantly reduce the histamine level about 40% below the base line value. However, 500 mg of vitamin C daily, a level 4 to 7 times the most recent adult RDA[11][12] and still attainable in a carefully planned diet, does not alter blood histamine levels in healthy adults.

Clemetson in 1989 wrote and published a monograph consisting of three volumes entitled Vitamin C, including thirteen chapters involving histamine. [13] With the publication of his three-volume set on Vitamin C, many considered him an authority and expert on vitamin C. A study based on Clemetson’s 1999 hypothesis,[4] concerning histamine in the development of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease, was published in 2002. [14] In conclusion, we found evidence that high total blood histamine is associated with confirmed CAD (coronary artery disease) and subsequent acute cardiac events and may prove to be a single excellent marker for atherosclerosis and coronary events.

The second hypothesis, published in 2002, concerned the “shaken-baby syndrome” as a variant of Barlow’s Disease, [5] or infantile scurvy -- with bruises, broken bones, and sores that will not heal. Barlow’s disease was a well-recognized condition in the first 75 years of the 20th century. Sir Thomas Barlow, MD, in 1883,[15][16] established the true nature of infantile scurvy. By postmortem studies (after death), Barlow established that subperiosteal hemorrhage (hemorrhage under the skin of the bone) was the anatomic basis for limb affliction in infantile scurvy.[17] To this day, Barlow's clinical description of infantile scurvy, with the appropriate pathologic correlation, remains a classic. Barlow stated that the extreme pain and tenderness seen in cases of infantile scurvy reflected bone pathology. Clemetson published additional papers concerning infantile scurvy, or a "variant of Barlow’s Disease", caused by toxic levels of histamine, and producing a weakness of the retinal vessels and the bridging veins and venules between the brain and the dura mater in infants, [18][6] and also published “Elevated Blood Histamine Caused by Vaccinations and Vitamin C Deficiency May Mimic the Shaken Baby Syndrome.” Clemetson points out that in early papers describing shaken baby syndrome, reference is made to the possibility of infantile scurvy. We now know that capillary fragility, so characteristic of scurvy, is the result of elevated blood histamine levels, which occur with even mild ascorbate depletion, as shown both in guinea pigs [19] and in human subjects. [13] The probability of Barlow’s disease can be increased by maternal malnutrition, by hyperemesis gravidarum (excessive vomiting in pregnancy), and by bacterial or viral infections in the mother or the infant. The retinal hemorrhages of severe hyperemesis gravidarum are a manifestation of vitamin C deficiency and are similar to petechial hemorrhages seen elsewhere.

Early electron microscope studies in 1961 by Majno and Palade [20][21] and by Gore in 1965 [22] demonstrated that toxic levels of histamine in the blood cause openings in the tight junctions between the vascular endothelial cells (lining of blood vessels), leading to extravasation (the forcing of liquid from a vessel out into surrounding tissue) of blood. The leakage of rat blood vessels occurred within minutes after the intravenous injection of histamine. Leakage of blood into the tissue slowly leads to local hemolysis, and also leads to local ascorbate depletion.

In 2004, Clemetson published two hypotheses. After reviewing Fung et al., [23] concerning the case review of nine infants, he states that Fung and her colleagues found no history of shaking or physical abuse of the patient, or in the infant's family, of the subdural hematomas reviewed. Clemetson questioned the causes of the cerebral hemorrhages, lesions, and delayed development, and published "Capillary Fragility as a Cause of Substantial Hemorrhage in Infants." [6] Based on his prior medical experience of 50 years in Obstetrics and Gynecology and his previous work with capillary strength, he states subdural hemorrhages can sometimes be detected by ultrasound examination before birth and even before labor. Never assume that bruises and broken ribs, or other broken bones, must always indicate trauma, because variants of infantile scurvy (or Barlow's disease) still occur today. No blood coagulation defect was found in any of the infants, so one has to consider capillary fragility as a possible cause.

The second hypothesis published in 2004 concerned "Elevated Blood Histamine Caused by Vaccinations and Vitamin C Deficiency May Mimic the Shaken Baby Syndrome." [7] A combination of ascorbate depletion and the injection of foreign proteins can cause a very high blood histamine level, leading to capillary fragility and venular bleeding. In 2006, he published another paper, [24] reviewing Caffey’s 1946 paper, [25] and found in addition to the long-bone fractures and subdural hematomas, other clinical signs consistent with infantile scurvy were evident in most of Caffey’s six cases. Another review of the early "shaken baby" literature was also conducted and published, finding that the bone pathology and subdural hematomas associated with Caffey's theory of the "shaken baby syndrome" are in fact typical scurvy fractures and bleedings.[26] Dr. Clemetson cautions the use of radiographs to determine scurvy: Although osteopenia and contrasting white lines of healing are said to be characteristic radiological features of classical scurvy, absence of these findings on radiographs does not rule out a scorbutic state. The precise time course of increased susceptibility to fractures and the development of osteopenia and white lines of healing seen on radiographs is not known. Bones may be vulnerable to fracture because of proline and lysine hydroxylase deficiencies (dependent upon vitamin C) affecting chondroblasts and osteoblasts before these classic radiological signs appear, especially if scurvy develops rapidly at an early age.[24]

Dr. Clemetson also based his vitamin C / histamine hypotheses concerning “the shaken baby syndrome” on bioengineering studies that have demonstrated since 1943[27] inflicted brain injury by manual shaking could not occur, before the appearance of cervical spine and neck injuries. A recent bioengineering study was published in 2005, [28] finding that forceful shaking can severely injure or kill an infant; this is because the cervical spine would be severely injured and not because subdural hematomas would be caused by high head rotational accelerations. Furthermore, shaking cervical spine injury can occur at much lower levels of head velocity and acceleration than those reported for the SBS. These findings are consistent with the physical laws of injury biomechanics as well as our collective understanding of the fragile infant cervical spine from (1) clinical obstetric experience, (2) automotive medicine and crash safety experience, and (3) common parental experience. We have determined that an infant head subjected to the levels of rotational velocity and acceleration called for in the SBS literature, would experience forces on the infant neck far exceeding the limits for structural failure of the cervical spine.

Although a Barlow’s disease variant may be the most common disease, other diagnoses such as fragile bone disease, hemorrhagic disease of the newborn (vitamin K deficiency), and glutaric aciduria type 1 must also be considered. Dr. Clemetson continues: No one should ever be accused of inflicting shaken-baby syndrome unless analyses for ascorbic acid and blood histamine have been performed and can be placed in evidence. To reduce the risk of Barlow's disease, we should consider the following: (1) Postponing inoculations for infants who are premature or ailing in any way, even with an upper respiratory infection; (2) reconsidering the wisdom of giving as many as six inoculants, all at once, to infants at eight weeks of age; (3) administering 500 mg of vitamin C powder or crystals, in fruit juice, to infants before inoculation; and (4) giving additional ascorbic acid by injection to any infant showing a severe reaction such as convulsions or a high-pitched cry.[6][29]

Dr. Clemetson had a long and distinguished academic career as a medical doctor, scientist and researcher. During his forty year professional career, he implemented numerous scientific studies and was instrumental in furthering scientific knowledge. The following listed achievements are highlights of his life’s work that are contained in his extensive Curriculum Vitae.

Dr. Clemetson's most notable medico-legal achievement was as the father of the “Motherhood Bill”, which requires that all medical insurance carriers in the State of New York include coverage for pregnancy and complications of pregnancy. This so-called Donovan Bill rapidly spread to all 50 states.
