Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Organized somewhat radically around a grim Ursula K. Le Guin short story about a child tortured for the good of a community, this book's three sections provide anecdotal accounts of physical disabilities following vaccination, discrimination faced by physicians who challenge the status quo, and the legal and ethical issues raised by vaccination. Holland, Habakus, and their contributors address the onset of autism in early childhood; Gulf War syndrome, now thought to be connected to the anthrax vaccinations; an adult's muscle deterioration thought to have been caused by a flu vaccination; a teenager permanently invalided after receiving a HPV vaccination; the role of the medical industry in shaping media coverage; constitutional issues about the government's right to mandate health care; and many other related issues. There are 23 contributions in all, and supporting documents and an appendix prepared by the Center for Personal Rights, a non-partisan advocacy group focused on vaccination choice with which Holland and Habakus are associated (though a disclaimer absolves the Center from the views expressed within). Though the editors come to the issue with an obvious agenda, their effort should still prove useful to anyone suspicious of present policies.

When I started the book last week, I was not expecting it to be one that I could not put down. But I carried it with me, and read it whenever I had a moment.
This is a MUST READ! I am a pediatric nurse, and I was really blown away about the FACTS in this book. Vaccines are not adequately studied for safety, and they can clearly cause a great deal of injury. I knew that this idea that it was a 1 in a million chance of getting an injury was false, because I have cared for several vaccine injured children, who were left severely brain damaged from seizures, only hours after receiving their vaccines.
No doctor I have EVER been in contact with goes over the risks of vaccines, the side effects (other than soreness at the site, mild fever) and I have never seen a consent form for a vaccine. Not to mention, no doctor ever reviews the ingredients. I guess if you tell a parent that you are about to inject their day old baby with Aluminum Hydroxyphosphate Sulfate, Amino Acids, Dextrose, Formaldehyde or Formalin, Mineral Salts, Potassium Aluminum Sulfate, Soy Peptone, and Yeast Protein, they will snatch their child and run for their lives!!!
I have now changed my wording in my nursing assessments. When I ask about vaccines, as required by the medical paperwork, I now ask if the family has CHOSEN to vaccinate their child. Because parents need to know that vaccinations are a choice.
And if you are being bullied about vaccines by your child's doctor, you need to FIRE THEM!
The Supreme Court Ruling today just made me even more convinced that vaccines are a huge danger to people, especially since you have NO LEGAL recourse when you get injured.
I'm going to pass this book around, and I am going to see if my book club will want to discuss it!
Great job!

...but the fact is, we don't.

Vaccination, touted by their manufacturers and apostles in the medical profession, as "The Greatest Miracle of Modern Medicine," is also a serious technological intervention. Vaccination, even more so than all other medical interventions, since it is performed on healthy individuals, should only be accepted with fully, informed consent.

The editors of this book had thriving careers when they ran face-first into the wall of an unanticipated reality. The lessons, learned the hard way, of that awakening prompted this comprehensive look at issues and factors related to vaccination that are never disclosed in those little forms warning of "extremely rare redness or soreness at the site of injection" that we are asked to sign before submitting our children and ourselves to these inoculations. Neither are these issues reported in an open and unbiased way in the mainstream press, due to concerns about alienating pharmaceutical advertisers and EXTREME pressure by members of the medical community and high-level government officials, who fear that "too much information" (i.e. fully informed consent) will (rightly) cause people to have reservations about the vaccine program, as it is currently constituted.

As the editors and contributors of Vaccine Epidemic have so comprehensively and solidly demonstrated, backed by supporting documentation, true informed consent would include an understanding of facts that go far beyond mere vaccine ingredients and all the disclosures on manufacturers' package inserts. It is truly unfortunate that we no longer live in the days of Marcus Welby, M.D.

As the parents of a child that sustained vaccine damage, we would like to thank you for writing this book. We wish it would have been available to us seventeen years ago when in one day we, as parents thinking they were doing the best for their child, allowed our son to be given four vaccinations in one sitting. One of those was the MMR, so in reality he actually was exposed to seven.

The next three days our son was projectile vomiting, lethargic, lost eye contact, would scream if touched, and feverish. Upon calling his pediatrician, we were advised to use Tylenol and keep him hydrated. Repeated calls...same advice and he said it was a natural reaction. A trip to the ER. Nothing more, sent home.

Our son, who was surpassing his developmental milestone up to that point, was lost to us. No more talking, no laughing, no play, no eye contact, and he became self-abusive and aggressive to us. He was subsequently diagnosed with PDD-NOS and then ASD. We've spent the last seventeen years trying to repair that damage, remediate the injury, and advising others to become informed on vaccines and seek a safe schedule to use them.

Today our son is doing much better, however hopefully this book will be looked upon for what it is. The authors look at this from a view and perspective where they have no personal investment in this, they are not making money off of the drug industry, nor do they want to show there is a clear cut answer. They do however want to show there should be more done and people need to do a 360 when writing off something that is obvious. Everyone also should look at this is the perspective for what it actually is. A Vaccine Epidemic.

With much appreciation,
Andrew and Carolyn Gammicchia
