Researchers Can Learn From Antimony and Cot Death Controversy
Professor Fell will be detailing his latest research, due to be published this month in The Analyst, in which he made a careful analysis of a number of toxic metals, such as lead, cadmium and antimony, in newborns and infants. He compared the levels of the metals in those that had died from cot death (or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, SIDS) to those that had died of known causes, and found no...
