Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This "comprehensive look at the rarely discussed secretive and mysterious aspects of immunization" is based on numerous papers on vaccination researched by the author, whose interests are in natural health and herbal medicine. A perusal of the bibliographical references, however, shows the vast majority dated prior to 1990. Murphy has a definite bias against vaccination, which is evident throughout the book. Taking an anti-innoculation stance similar to Randall Neustaedter's in The Immunization Decision ( LJ 6/1/90), he does not discuss the benefits of immunization. While his book provides worthwhile information on its risks and possible adverse effects, concerned parents should also consult literature that addresses the positive aspects of immunizations. Recommended for collections providing information on alternative medicine or those attempting to provide comprehensive consumer health coverage.

From Booklist

Murphy's book is important in part simply because it is one of only a few that shed light on the little-known hazards of vaccination. (Vaccination is the term sometimes used instead of immunization, since, as Murphy shows, vaccines do not guarantee immunity from childhood diseases.) Many contain toxins, and some are known to cause injurious reactions--even death. Despite, or perhaps because of, this disturbing evidence, most parents seem afraid to investigate the issue, and some are unaware of it. Then, too, there are those parents who decline to inoculate their children--a controversial but conscious decision. This book's availability in libraries is critical; Murphy's thoroughly researched and well-documented effort will, one hopes, make decisions about inoculations somewhat easier. Murphy should especially be commended for emphasizing the development of natural immunities, such as occur when babies are breast-fed. Jo Peer-Haas

Format: Paperback
The whole immunization issue is so one sided. This book finally gives the other perspective, in an easy to read format. From an educator, and parent's standpoint the book is convincing that immunizing your child is not the only way. No one can force you to immunize your child if you have a belief it's not right. Read this book and finally become educated, confident and informed!

When I was pregnant with my first baby I knew that I didn't want to immunize any of my children. Up until I read this book I had really no "proof" that my confictions were correct. Thanks to this book, I began a serious investigation into immunizations. I now have tangible info to share with pro-vaccine parents. It only takes one light in a dark world to bring truth!

This book provides very useful information for anyone trying to decide whether to vaccinate their children or not. It tells about how each vaccine is made and gives background information on different diseases. Also talks about the benefits of breastfeeding as far as vaccinations go. This was very helpful to me!

This is the best of the best book on the vaccines it discusses: unfortunately, it's over twenty years old, so it doesn't have anything about the more recent flood of vaccines or about topics undreamt of then, like vaccines causing autism or peanut oil adjuvanting the Hib and other vaccines causing peanut allergies. But its discussion of the problems surrounding the DPT, polio, and measles vaccines is unsurpassed, going into great and stunning detail about the results of animal and epidmiological studies which proved decades ago that the vaccines have always been much more dangerous than the diseases. The chapter on the four big killers of the nineteenth century, diphtheria, measles, scarlet fever, and pertussis was fascinating, giving exact statistics from 1910 and 1935 on how the mortality rate for each disease plummeted dramatically before the vaccines for three of them were introduced. I"ve turned down the corner of the pages with the most surprising, always very detailed information, but am embarrassed to say that I've turned down three-quarters of the pages in the whole book, having to turn up the bottom corner if the top corner has already been bent down on the preceding page. I was looking to see if the author had written anything more recent, I'd love to see what he has to say about the vaccine debacle of the last twenty years, but couldn't find anything.
