Defined, “CAN Syndrome is a cluster of cardio-respiratory and neurological signs and symptoms associated with unique physical features that occur secondary to tight cord-round-the-neck.” Peesay points out there are cord abnormalities seen in 1/3 of all live births. He cites the definite connection through scientific research linking quadriplegic cerebral palsy with CAN Syndrome as he queries the correlation between CAN Syndrome, autism and ADHD, as well.
This paragraph is researcher heavy so please read slowly!!! Peesay states it is proven scientifically Intermittent Cord Occlusion causes low venous return in the umbilical vein which causes low H2O, low PH and increased CO2 which causes altered brain protein synthesis and degradation. WHEW!!! So, the amazing discovery is CAN Syndrome has the same brain abnormalities as Intermittent Cord Occlusion!!!
A Harvard study in 2007 identified Umbilical Cord Accidents (UCA) causing placental abnormalities as being responsible for 16% of stillbirth deaths in this study. In this study, concluded 44% of the stillbirths had unknown causes and 40% had other causes. However, a retrospective review of this study informs us, the 44% of stillbirths due to unknown causes were determined to be UCA causing placental abnormalities. Therefore, actually 42% of the original study was found to be the consequence of UCA causing placental abnormalities. WHAT!!!
Peesay explains, when there is umbilical vein compression, fetal thrombotic (FTV) vasculopathy gives the baby one of two outcomes: neurological problems or DEATH (stillbirth). Peesay queries if children living today with cerebral palsy of any degree, autism, or any neurological disorders including ADHD are the “victims” of missed umbilical cord compromises / injuries which did not result in stillbirth???This diabolical medical uncertainty, claiming 30,000 our “littlest victims” yearly in the USA alone, remains unchanged. Quite frankly, it demands to be researched by the experts; it begs to be answered by the families…
