MYTH #7 VACCINES CAN CAUSE SUDDEN INFANT DEATH SYNDROME (SIDS)
The primary cause of SIDS is suffocation, which is why parents are warned to place their babies on their sides or backs to sleep rather than on their stomachs. Since this official recommendation was made by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the number is SIDS deaths has dropped dramatically. This is in spite of the fact that the number of babies who received the hepatitis B vaccine (the vaccine which was thought by some to cause SIDS) increased at the same time. So there really is no truth to this myth.
