- Additional information
This book provides parents with a comprehensive, evidence-based guide to the facts, myths, problems, and solutions associated with raising a vaccine free child. It helps parents protect their children both from the wiles of the vaccine industry and from harmful germs. It explains the difference between childhood diseases and the other infectious diseases, which is the key to understanding immunisation. Modern medicine fails to recognise that childhood diseases are self-resolving, and prescribes interventions that increase the risk of complications. Raising a Vaccine Free Child explains why self-resolving diseases, like measles and mumps, do not need intervention, but do need proper care to prevent complications from developing. It also advises parents on how to bring children safely through childhood diseases, and discusses the prevention and treatment of the infectious diseases that do need intervention, such as polio and tetanus. The book provides information about the toxic ingredients and biological contaminants in vaccines, and the relationship between vaccination and the global epidemic of chronic disease. There is a detailed chapter on “herd immunity,” which empowers parents to withstand the accusation that vaccine free children pose a threat to others. Raising a Vaccine Free Child provides an insight into the workings of the vaccine industry, and into the role of the media in perpetuating myths about vaccination and infectious diseases. It shows that the long-term adverse effects of vaccination have not been properly assessed at any time in any country. Readers will learn that vaccination is not the reason for the absence of some infectious diseases, and that insidious, long-term adverse effects of vaccination are common. A look at the history of vaccination reveals that it is an unscientific procedure that is based on falsehood, cruelty, and supposition.
