    Not worth the money

    I wish I hadn't wasted my money on this as a gift for an expectant mom. I returned it and bought Dr. Sears Vaccine Book instead which seems far more balanced about the dangers of vaccines vs. the benefits.

    Very bad book. She says her own daughter reacted to the DTaP at two months by starting to scream a strange, high-pitched scream starting four hours after the injection, which continued for less than an hour, badly frightening her, as she knew that that scream was characteristic of encephalitis. But, since the child recovered and was fine, she says that it was a reaction to the vaccine, but just goes to show you how harmless vaccine reactions are. My daughter reacted to the hep-B vax at birth with four days and nights of endless screaming, vaccine-induced encephalitis, and was later diagnosed with autism. This book is just pharma propaganda, pure and simple. All vaccines are safe, all the vaccine-preventable diseases are extremely dangerous (?!), and you absolutely have to get all of them for your child. All the studies on vaccine damage are worthless in her book, and, like her mentors Dr. Proffit, Seth Mnookin, and Orac, the only important thing is to pay for every last one of the vaccines and do every last thing your doctor tells you to do. And never ever look at the evil sources of information she devotes a chapter to, the resources begun by vaccine-damaged families like mine. As she does her best to rip into pieces her critics, and silence those whose experience wtih vaccine damage was not as rosy as her own. Do not buy this book. Try Aviva Jill Romm's book instead.
