No, scientists have not discovered the cause of SIDS. Here’s what they found.

Last week, a new Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) study went viral after news headlines and social media posts proclaimed that scientists had discovered the root cause of the disease. And one Press release describing the research claimed that, thanks to the “breakthrough” discovery, SIDS “could soon be a thing of the past”.

However, the study in question, published on May 6 in the journal eBioMedicinehasn’t uncovered the root cause of SIDS and is unlikely to contribute to a risk assessment or a way to prevent the syndrome anytime soon, an expert told Live Science.
