NO, not everone who removes their child from a car seat causes their death--but I have yet to hear of a child that dies shortly after a circ. And even if you can find me one--it isn't in anywhere even remotely close to the numbers of children who die while unrestrained in a moving vehicle.
As far as illness rates rising, this is what I was getting at when I said you only respond to the people who say it's fine to remove a crying child from his carseat--we already went over this, the reason for the "brainwashing" campain is that the effects of travelling with a child unrestrained are immediately visible and repeatable. Its also something that can actually be enforced.
And for your information, I was not brainwashed by any campain--I was brainwashed the day I had to put sheets over the faces of a young father and his precious baby who were in at best a "fender bender" because those parents thought that mom could hold onto that baby should something happen. I was also brainwashed the day I had to hose an 18 mos little girl named Kelly's grey matter off the pavement, I was brainwashed again when I had to send my dog to locate a child who flew through the windshield into a pile of a brush because we were so afraid one of us would step on him killing him if he wasn't dead already--he was dead, and my dog didn't eat for a week, so you see, my brainwashing comes from actually seeing the effects, if I saw the effects of children dying horrible, traumatic deaths from formula feeding (BTW-the stats you are quoting apply primarily to people who do not properly mix formula-use less formula to make it last, do not use clean water, etc) I may feel as passionately about that as I do about children in car seats--but no government brainwashed me--I saw it, up close and personal, I held and rocked my depressed dog and fest horribly guilty for putting him through that--then I felt mad because neither one of us should have had to go through it.
