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.

I am also a fellow immunologist that studied vaccines, and a mother of two, and I was eager to read this book because I was hoping that a scientist will provide an honest balanced narration of the history, efficacy and future challenges of vaccine programs, and raise some real questions that is worthy of thoughts. However this book can make Fox News and MSNBC News seem fair and balanced.
I intend to write a full length review approximately the same length as the book itself, with proper references to the statements I make. But it will take time, and I don't want more readers mislead by the lack of negative reviews, so here is a shorter version.
Here are the major problems I have with this book:
1) Lack of reference. The author make various statements which are critical for her stance against vaccination that is not reference at all. For example, she claimed that Jenner's smallpox vaccine was only effective for an undefined "a few years", and yet, all my searches yielded rather long effectiveness of vaccinia vaccine ([...]). The author seems to choose references that would suit her argument but ignore those that contradict hers.
2) Totally biased. I guess I can't really blame her for writing a book titled "Vaccine Illusions" and only criticize the efficacy of vaccines, but what I have a problem with is her disguising this book as a scientific book that can be used to educate parents who are trying to make vaccine choices. No, this book is for those who have already made up their mind to not vaccinate their children and are looking for validation for such a decision from somebody that can be perceived as "credible".

Very Clear. Well laid out. To the point. Taking a systems overview approach rather than a silo/reductionist view. Highly recommend to anyone seeking clarity on this issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for anyone interested in vaccines March 21, 2012

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.

I would like to personally thank this author for stepping up to the plate and giving us all a real look at the inner workings of vaccination and the complications that arise from its overuse in today's world.
Being a paramedic for over ten years, I saw first hand many of the vaccine related injuries spoken of in this book (and some that were not), & I am sick of second & third year medical students in an ER telling families that "your child must have had some kind of response to a virus", when there is an absence of any other explanation for the child's condition on presentation at the ER except for it being post vaccination.
Doctors continue to see themselves as a high authority, yet to continue be taught only what pharmaceutical companies want them taught. For the sake of our kids and future generations, I hope this stops one day soon. Credible books like this one will help that cause.
So, thank you to the author, please continue to spread the word & I will continue to promote your great work!

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.
