Which celebrity children died today?
Posted On July 28, 2021
Celebrity kids are still the number one cause of death among young children in the United States, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.
A new study finds that the deaths of the children are the most common cause of sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS.
“Our study shows that celebrity children are a major cause of SIDS, and that the number of SIDs is one of the reasons that kids in our community are dying so rapidly,” said Dr. Michael Siegel, a pediatrician at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle.
“This study also confirms that the cause of these deaths is the most serious and most preventable of all,” Siegel said.
“It’s very important to keep this in mind when you talk about health care.”
Celebrity deaths among young kids The study also found that celebrities with SIDS are the ones who have the highest mortality rate.
Celebrities with SIDs have a 1 in 68 chance of dying from their cause, which includes suffocation, asphyxia or cardiac arrest.
“The number one celebrity death among celebrities with sudden infant mortality syndrome was a 17-year-old girl named Jennifer Lopez,” said Siegel.
“Jennifer died of SID on May 19, 2015, and the autopsy revealed that she had an extremely high risk of developing SIDS and cardiac arrest.”
According to the study, the highest number of deaths in this category were found in a group of five young children who were found dead in their cribs in a home in San Francisco on March 11, 2016.
All five children were white and had a BMI of 29.8.
They were all aged between 4 and 8 years old.
According to Siegel’s research, the number 1 cause of children’s deaths among celebrities is SIDS because it is the one that causes the most SIDS deaths among the young children.
“What is particularly interesting is that, as we know, the SIDS risk increases with age,” said Marge Lee, M.D., director of the Pediatric SIDS Center at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
“That is, younger children have lower risk of sudden death due to SIDS.”
The study was published in the American Journal of Pediatric Cardiology.
The study analyzed data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics, the Centers of Disease Control’s National Vital Statistics System and the American Heart Association’s National Pediatric Heart Survey.
the study looked at deaths of infants aged less than six months from April 1, 2016, through May 19.
The children had a median age of 3.5 years and were found at their homes in the San Francisco Bay Area, San Jose, San Diego, Los Angeles, Portland, Colorado and Phoenix.
The cause of deaths included all SIDS cases, sudden infant deaths, SIDS-like episodes, and all deaths from causes other than SIDS involving infants under 6 months old.
In addition, the study included deaths from congenital malformations of the head and neck, heart defects, respiratory problems, pneumonia, stroke, and congenital heart disease.
“These children died in their homes because they were at the extremes of what we would consider to be a safe environment for them,” said Lee.
“We want to make sure that the parents are aware that there are things you can do to make your home safer.”
The CDC does not have a full-time SIDS researcher.
The new study was funded by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders.
