Indian baby back from the dead

Hospital authorities in India have ordered an independent inquiry after a baby was declared dead, only to make an apparently miraculous return to life.

The baby girl – born in the city of Mumbai (Bombay) – was diagnosed as stillborn on Monday night. … He said that that the doctors believed that the baby – who was limp at birth – had no heart beat and no pulse. She was given a death certificate on Tuesday morning and two hours later her body was handed over to her parents.

But later, when the effect of medicines wore off, Dr Merchant said that the baby “showed attempts to breathe”

… she astonished her distraught family by gurgling as they took her off to the cemetery the next day. It is thought she revived after the effect of drugs – given to her mother during a complicated labour – wore off.  Hospital authorities say they are now investigating possible negligence by staff who attended the birth. – bbc

    Hi Lifestylescribe.

    Yes, here is a photo of Lakshmi Tatma the 8-limbed baby before the operation.

    The reason weird babies are popping up all over the place: 1) they have always done so, but now in the Internet age word gets around faster… 2) the world is more radioactive and polluted due to human activities. (Accidents like Chernobyl, Nuclear bomb tests, use of depleted uranium munitions, etc.)

    “Scientists believe most birth defects are caused by a complex mix that could include such factors as genetic predisposition, environmental exposure and lifestyle choices. Yet, in 60% to 70% of cases, the precise cause of the birth defect is unknown. ” – healthlink

    Unknown is different from “unknowable”. In other words, I believe perchlorate and other military pollution is a major factor, but for political reasons, this is hushed up.

    It is a vicious cycle. The pollution lowers people’s IQ, and so they are more susceptible to emotional rather than logical arguments. This makes them vote for people like GW Bush and in turn leads to more war and more military pollution.

    Twenty-nine million Americans – that’s about one in every 10 — live within 10 miles of a toxic military site. That is, a site that’s already been labeled under the Superfund Program as being a top priority for toxic-waste cleanup. There are many, many, more sites that haven’t yet been certified. – publicintegrity

    As far as India… once again, pollution, but mostly industrial I think.

    Industrialization and urbanization have resulted in a profound deterioration of India’s air quality. Of the 3 million premature deaths in the world that occur each year due to outdoor and indoor air pollution, the highest number are assessed to occur in India. According to the World Health Organization, the capital city of New Delhi is one of the top ten most polluted cities in the world. – cd
