What is Shaken Baby Syndrome?

Shaken baby syndrome is a type of inflicted traumatic brain injury that happens when a baby is violently shaken.  A baby has weak neck muscles and a large, heavy head.  Shaking makes the fragile brain bounce back and forth inside the skull and causes bruising, swelling, and bleeding, which can lead to permanent, severe brain damage or death.  The characteristic injuries of shaken baby syndrome are subdural hemorrhages (bleeding in the brain), retinal hemorrhages (bleeding in the retina), damage to the spinal cord and neck, and fractures of the ribs and bones.  These injuries may not be immediately noticeable.  Symptoms of shaken baby syndrome include extreme irritability, lethargy, poor feeding, breathing problems, convulsions, vomiting, and pale or bluish skin.  Shaken baby injuries usually occur in children younger than 2 years old, but may be seen in children up to the age of 5.

Greenpeace is doing a new study on mercury contamination. The results of this study won't be hidden or covered up; they will become public knowledge so that our lawmakers will be forced to address the issue of mercury contamination. This study is aimed to show scientifically what a lot of people already know through personal experience: whether in vaccinations or the fish we eat, mercury pollution is in our environment, entering our bodies and causing harm. This is the largest study of its kind and will be groundbreaking by showing once and for all the need to control mercury pollution. But they need 10,000 people to participate so that they get a good, unbiased sample that can't be discredited by companies who don't want government regulation to cut into their profit margins for the sake of public health.
