I see the statistical significance in that article so I am inclined to believe it.

I could not find the article on 007b.com re: SIDS but found other published articles that had stats to support their findings.

Sorry about the crickets, there is another family of them on the what are you reading thread.

Oh, you can believe the one stat; it's not causation though. If you cite me the articles I'd be curious. I might post a couple of new ones myself, for the crickets.
