This book provides parents with a comprehensive, scientifically based guide to the facts, myths, problems and solutions associated with raising a vaccine free child. It helps them protect their children both from the wiles of the vaccine industry and from harmful germs. It explains the difference between childhood diseases and the other infectious diseases, which is the key to understanding immunisation. The book provides an insight into the workings of the vaccine industry, and into the role of the media in perpetuating myths about vaccination and infectious diseases. There is a detailed chapter on "herd immunity" which empowers parents to withstand the accusation that their vaccine free children pose a threat to others. It also helps parents cope with aggression from individuals and with intimidation from the medical authorities. A look at the history of vaccination reveals that it is an unscientific procedure that is based on falsehood, cruelty and supposition.
