B.C.'s chief coroner is urging parents to use safe sleep practices in light of a spike in the number of sudden infant deaths across the province this year.

There have been 21 sudden infant deaths in B.C. so far this year, while there were 16 sudden infant deaths for all of 2010, Lisa Lapointe said Tuesday.

Lapointe said that in most of this year's deaths, risk factors included babies sleeping with an adult, on a couch or a soft bed.

Babies should be placed on their back in a crib with a fitted sheet, without a lot of puffy blankets or toys that could obscure their face, Lapointe said.

"We know there's been a spike in the first six months and we know it's related to unsafe sleep practices. Why so many of those [deaths] have come up this year, we don't know," Lapointe said.

She said the reason for the increased number of deaths is all the more mysterious because health authorities, family doctors and public health nurses have kept up efforts to educate parents.

The B.C. Coroner's Service is continuing to investigate the 21 deaths.

Hej Shadow hug.gif Yes I was thinking it's coinciding with the increase in infant deaths along the West coast this year sad2.gif Something sure as hell is causing this and I don't think Canadian parents have started using "unsafe sleeping practices" this year 13.gif

More than doubled in California sad2.gif and at this rate BC's will quadruple. That is not a coincidence. Yesterday I found one deformed strawberry just like the cherries. I'll take my camera and if I find another I'll get a pic.

Those cherries were unlike anything I've ever seen, so far so good here thank god, everything seems to still be somewhat okay in terms of what I've seen growing.

The Fall out from Fukushima is heart wrenching. We are watching the worse catastrophe of the 21st century unravel. What is being done to the Japanese people is horrendous.

Right you are P

Infant beverages have been set twice as higher as the nuclear waste limit and for children and adults between 3 to 4 times the nuclear waste limit. In food the limit has been set up to 20 times international nuclear waste limits and of course all of these levels are hundreds of times higher than legal limits allowed in food in beverages of other nations around the world.
