No, scientists didn’t discover the cause of SIDS. Here’s what they did find.

Last week, a new study about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) went viral after news headlines and social media posts proclaimed that scientists had discovered the root cause of the condition. And a press release describing the research asserted that, thanks to the “breakthrough” finding, SIDS “may soon be a thing of the past.”

However, the study in question, published May 6 in the journal eBioMedicine, did not uncover the root cause of SIDS and likely won’t contribute to a risk assessment or a way to prevent the syndrome anytime soon, an expert told Live Science.
