    Dated and a little too frantic

    Like most parents we were concerned about vaccine scares, especially in light of the concerns for autism, so we read as widely as we could. This book, from 1991, didn't have anything new and we felt like other books on the topic had more complete information. That and it's tone is a little too... screeching. It's true, you can't be too careful as a parent, but we felt like we couldn't live in fear of everything either. This book (to us) did a lot of fear-provoking without good science to back it up.

    good info in book

    My wife and I are having our first baby and i just started to research this topic. I have several friends who did not immunize. This book along with other info and really brought out the truth with the vaccine crazy society we live in. WHO knew that 80% of the vaccines given to children do not even take? another drug company money making sceme.

    What we really need to know about DPT

    This book is hard core it gives the reader some hard known and published facts about this vaccination with in the medical field. These facts have not been given the publicity that they should have, the medical field and the state don't want us to know these facts. Not for someone who really doesn't want to know the true facts. Please Please follow your gut when you feel that your baby is sick after the shot. We as mothers tend to not follow that gut reaction we get. Because we feel like we are whinnying and we shouldn't. But please do.That is our GOD given right as mothers to do.. Dianne
