It appears the United States is beginning the slow process of righting a horrible wrong. For five decades, any baby with multiple fractures and blood behind the retina in the eye or the dura matter in the brain was proof positive the parents were monsters. Out from behind the crowd comes a courageous forensic medical specialist, Dr. Steven Gabaeff, to say: hold on here; we have, and we are, convicting innocent people.
I have written about this before, see the following:
My background in zoology always made me ponder that beating a tiny infant is something only violent sociopaths, strung out drug addicts, and pathologically jealous barbarians are likely to do. Beating a tiny helpless infant is simply too much the opposite of the long-ago instilled human instinct to protect such tiny infants.
I have also wondered how such beatings could lead to painless and bloodless fractures. Does that make any sense, that the fractures caused from the alleged beatings are painless and without bruising?
Dr. Gabaeff points to evidence that such fractures, as well as the bleeding in the eye and the brain, may well be the result of vitamin D deficiency. He also points out that violent shaking of the head of experimental monkeys always leads to significant neck injuries, something that is curiously absent in the tens of thousands of cases of “shaken baby syndrome,” syndromes that have destroyed tens of thousands of innocent families.
It will be interesting to compare how long it takes the judicial system to correct a wrong compared to how long it takes the medical system to correct the pandemic of vitamin D deficiency. I predict the legal system will move quickly, as the judges will quickly see that they have been misled by child abuse fanatics, while the medical system must come face to face with a pandemic of autism, asthma and autoimmune disorders that they themselves caused.
