New study finds infection may play role in SIDS

From NBC12 News

A new study from the United Kindom suggests bacterial infections might be a factor in some cases of Sudden Infants Death Syndrome.

Researchers reviewed autopsies done on more than 500 infants who had died suddenly and unexpectedly.

They found high levels of staph and E. coli bacteria in otherwise unexplained cases of infant death.

Researchers say there needs to be much more study into this potential insight.
