"Shaken Baby"? Maybe Not

Interesting article here.

Of specific interest is this:

“there is no consensus among medical professionals as to whether the symptoms that have traditionally been attributed to SBS are necessarily indicative of intentional shaking.”

Seems that some SBS symptoms occur in newborns just released from the hospital, and CAN occur through accidental dropping at only one to four feet.
