Rohan Wray and Chana Al-Alas; "Shaken baby syndrome." Irish paper points out physicians' ignorance of Vitamin D deficiency causing Rickets.

STORY: "Quarter of Toddlers lack Vitamin D - study," published in the Irish Examiner on January 24, 2012."
GIST: "Last month a young couple walked free from court after being cleared of killing their four-month-old son after it was found he had been suffering from rickets. Rohan Wray and Chana Al-Alas of Islington, north London, fell under suspicion when baby Jayden died suddenly two years ago. But, following a six-week trial at the Old Bailey, charges of murder and causing or allowing his death were dropped. A quarter of all toddlers are lacking Vitamin D, according to research in the UK."

PUBLISHER'S NOTE: The Toronto Star, my previous employer for more than twenty incredible years, has put considerable effort into exposing the harm caused by Dr. Charles Smith and his protectors - and into pushing for reform of Ontario's forensic pediatric pathology system. The Star has a "topic" section which focuses on recent stories related to Dr. Charles Smith. It can be found at:
