After eleven years of research, Dr. Daniel Rubens may have found what he’s been looking for: An answer to what causes so many mysterious and tragic cases of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). As this article from The Seattle Times reveals, he has found that it could be linked to a simple inner-ear dysfunction and is advocating for more research which could lead to a hearing test to be performed on babies within 48 hours of birth, allowing the problem if it exists to be diagnosed and potentially saving the baby’s life.
