Excellent book giving the science in detail, but well written in a style which can be understood by the lay person.
Note that the science has NOT been shown to be wrong. The science has NOT been disproved. Andrew Wakefield discovered something genuinely new and ground breaking which connects a particular condition with a vaccine which is intended to be protective of health, and mostly is. Occasionally however, the system fails and as a civilised society, we need to care compassonately for those who have been betrayed by these intentions.
Read about the political machinations involved in helping the drug companies to help themselves to tax payers cash while the poor patient is last in the pecking order of concerns. Shame on the politicians involved in this charade.
The drugs industry needs to be reined in and better controlled because their concern is profits, not patient health. Beware the next Hep C vaccine, intended to be given to newborns. Beware also of the new health economics, where the UK economy is to be based on scientific and medical research, which need to be tested on us, the public.
There have been many wonderful advances in medical science. But make yourself aware about issues such as ethics, patient rights and patient consent. Don't let yourself or your children be the subject of a tragedy such as this book describes.
