From the Publisher
Are vaccines really safe and effective? A few years ago, a concerned father asked this very question. No one provided him with convincing evidence so he researched the scientific literature on his own and wrote a vaccine book that went on to become a bestseller (more than 150,000 copies sold). Today, this profound and compelling immunization handbook, "Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective?," has been completely updated and revised (2008). It contains 30 graphs and more than 900 references. This essential immunization resource is the best introductory vaccine book in the world! (The author's new, 560 page Vaccine Safety Manual, has replaced it as the world's most complete guide to immunization risks and protection.)
"Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective?" includes the latest information on ALL recommended childhood shots plus smallpox, shingles, HPV and flu. In addition, this remarkable vaccine guide...Evaluates each vaccine for safety, efficacy, and long-term effects; Includes the most recent studies and provides numerous case histories; Pinpoints for parents exact conditions that may put their own child at high risk; Documents correlations between vaccines and several new diseases; Outlines current vaccine laws and offers parental options to "mandatory" shots; Helps all concerned people to make wise and responsible decisions.
When New Atlantean Press first published "Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective?" some people opposed our efforts to educate parents and health practitioners. Of course, many others were deeply grateful. Today, this book has been translated into several languages. In addition, chiropractic colleges stock it in their bookstores and midwives recommend it to their clients. Many pediatricians and other doctors purchase this book as well. Often, they are surprised by the number of valid studies documenting vaccine hazards. This information was not taught in medical school.
This book will continue to arouse strong emotions. It is well written and well documented. Furthermore, this latest edition of "Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective?" is much more extensive than the earlier edition. For example, the previous book had 300 notes and references; this new book has more than 900 notes and references -- a threefold increase in researched data! The previous book had 12 illustrations; this new book has 30 charts and graphs. The previous book was just 78 pages; this new book has 128 pages -- nearly twice as much new information!
This latest edition also answers many more questions than the earlier edition. For example, how are the vaccines made? Do they still contain thimerosal, a mercury derivative? Are the chickenpox and MMR vaccines manufactured in human fetal tissue? Do credible studies show correlations between the current autism epidemic and vaccines? These questions and many, many more are answered in this book.
