Book Description

Due to the growing number of vaccine safety concerns, our society has been polarized into vaccine advocates and vaccine opponents. However, in the debate over vaccine safety, we have lost sight of a bigger problem: how vaccination campaigns wipe out our herd immunity and endanger the very young. Written by an immunologist, Vaccine Illusion explains why vaccines cannot give us lasting immunity to infectious diseases and how they jeopardize our natural immunity and overall health.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for anyone interested in vaccines March 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
If you have any interest in researching vaccination and immunity, I think this is a good book to read. This book alone will not answer all your questions, but offers a very compelling and well-researched starting point, or continuing point, for the discussion of vaccines. There is a lot of good information in this book, and as a mom who has already researched vaccination extensively, I still have learned a lot from reading this.

At the start of this book, the author introduces herself and how she came to her views on immunizations. Dr. Tetyana Obukhanych has a PhD in immunology and started out excited about vaccines, but as her studies progressed, her views began to change. In the introduction, she explains her reasons for writing this book, and also gives definitions to the terms of immunity, immunology and immunization. Though she comes from a very scientific background, she has written this book in a way that it could be understood by nearly anyone, because she defines many of the scientific terms she uses.

Chapter one is about the history of vaccination, and how the process came about with the first vaccine for smallpox. Dr. Tetyana Obukhanych also explains how this process was flawed from the beginning, and it has remained so ever since. She says that "Every new generation of immunologists is initiated into this illusion and inadvertently takes immunologic research in the direction that is further and further away from understanding the true basis of immunity." Her writing style and logic are very compelling.

Chapter two covers the introduction of vaccination for diphtheria and tetanus, using blood from horses that had been gradually infected with the diseases. This led to "serum sickness" which led to the introduction of formaldehyde into the vaccine.

As the parent of newborn twins, I felt a strong duty to educate myself on what seemed like a vaccine controversy. The few times I mentioned that I questioned the validity of the current vaccine program, my "friends" jumped down my throat and acted as if I was a wild-eyed nutjob for questioning a government program. One even called me a baby-killer when I said that I was considering not vaccinating my children. Others told me that people like me were a social ill and that I would damage the "herd immunity".

All I had were some questions about vaccination - I did not have a strong opinion one way or the other. Until I read this book.

This book is a *wonderful* way to understand the science of how vaccines are intended to work and why they do NOT work that way. I learned about how the body gains natural immunity, how a mother passes immunity her infants, and how the body repairs immunity-critical cells. There are core "immunologic dogmas" like herd immunity and the best way to treat the immune system of infants and adults that the author digs into in simple sentences. Most importantly, I learned about natural immunity and why it's being damaged by vaccines. I was surprised at the amount of suppositions that vaccine science is based on.

The author is extremely knowledgeable and professional in her presenting her case on why the current vaccine program is damaging our natural immunity and causing far-reaching immunological issues. There are frequent links to supporting documents, statistics and studies. She leaves enough open-ended questions to make it a comfortable read for someone who is pro-vaccine. This is a short book; the chapters are to the point and eloquent.

I wish my doctor would read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vital reading for any thoughtful person April 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is fantastic and I am so grateful to the author for writing this that I could kiss her! The previous two reviews have done a thorough job so I don't feel I need to go into much detail, but I will say that even if you feel informed about the vaccine debate you still need to read this book. It's quite a new angle and it's very eye-opening. If you don't know much about the debate then this is an excellent place to start your research. It's science but it's easy to follow and it's fascinating. More than just vaccines, the author also discusses the science behind why reliance on Tylenol is a problem, and exactly why the American diet is undermining our immune systems. Read it, read it again, and get all your family and friends to read it. This is important information about immunity and she's the only one telling it.

Just finished this book, written by an immunologist. Every time I get into a debate with another health professional or science professional they tell me "show me the study" or "your talking about anecdotal evidence". Well guess what? Immunology's premises are NOT evidence based or conducted using double blind, randomized studies! The entire science of immunology is built upon aunproven, faulty theories, some are even illogical based on experimental inconsistencies.

Some vaccines are even leading us into a situation call "original antigenic sin", such as the flu vaccine and pertussis. We're actually more susceptible to milder forms of related diseases when we've received the vaccine.

One last thing I've learned. When they say a vaccine is "safe", what they are saying is that vaccine does not cause the disease it is preventing. They are in no means speaking about the adverse effects of the vaccine unrelated to the disease. I can only guess that as a vaccine educated health professional who did not know this, that your child's pediatrician doesn't know it, either.
