About the Authors.
Posted May 1, 2001
This book will not help parents make decisions about vaccines. It contains much false information, and all of the author's conclusions implore parents to vaccinate their children. This book will insult your intelligence if you have already begun to investigate vaccines because the pediatricians who wrote it claim all vaccines are safe and effective and do not cause harmful reactions. If you are trying to make an informed decision, stay away from this book; it could be dangerous to your child.
