Collecting all the "infant death" syndrome (mysterious infant deaths) and weeding out infant births between natural (lack of medicine) deaths versus genetic issues due to strange family connections.
There are some families who lose children at an early infant age. Some families seem to not have one gender, but the other (i.e. all daughters and no sons or all sons and no daughters). This is a study to see if this may be the cause of some inbreeding.
Age range: zero (0) to five (5).
Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is the unexplained death, usually during sleep, of a seemingly healthy baby less than a year old. SIDS is sometimes known as crib death because the infants often die in their cribs.
Although the cause is unknown, it appears that SIDS may be associated with abnormalities in the portion of an infant's brain that controls breathing and arousal from sleep.
Researchers have discovered some factors that may put babies at extra risk. They've also identified some measures you can take to help protect your child from SIDS. Perhaps the most important measure is placing your baby on his or her back to sleep.

Surely God knows how we are made, And recalls that we are dust! Our human life is a reed, A flower that blooms in the meadow. It is gone when the wind blows over it; Its place recalls it no more, But the grace of the Lord is eternal, Resting forever on those fear God. God’s justice belongs to their offspring, To all who keep the covenant; Who remember to do what God commands.
- Psalm 103:15-18
