Book Description

28 July 2009
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very informative but a word of warning... 7 Nov 2009
This is a very informative book for anyone trying to navigate the minefield surrounding childhood vaccinations. It is superbly referenced and it is refreshing to find some solid scientific facts about vaccination in a world full of misleading claims by government health authorities and big pharama.

I don't want to put anyone off this book because it is full opf important information but i think it is only fair that people should be aware that as you progress through the book it starts to make more and more claims about homeopathy. For me this seems at odds with the rest of the book which is well researched and referenced science. None of the homeopathy claims are referenced to scientific studies (because there is no scientific basis for homeopathy), which i guess is a good thing because if there were it would reduce the credibilty of the real facts.

All in all it is a good book and it has real important information for anyone considering vaccination who wants the real facts of the matter but if you think homeopathy is bogus you are going to have to skip a couple of chapters.

1.0 out of 5 stars A scientific review 9 Feb 2012
By Richard
This review is too long, for which I apologise in advance. This book claims to be science-based, so this review is intended to address only the scientific issues within the book. One might consider this review to contain "spoilers" as I do discuss various parts of the book in detail. If you are interested in the validity of the claim that this is a "scientifically-based" book then please read on.

The first question that anyone should ask themselves before reading a supposedly scientific book is: what are the credentials of the author? To this end, reputable publishers will often include an "about the author" section, explaining the author's qualifications and why they feel that they have the right to draw the conclusions that they do. The absence of any such section in this book suggests that the author has no relevant qualifications, and the way that the author references and discusses scientific literature certainly supports this idea.
To avoid being called a hypocrite here is my "about the author" section:
I have a degree in Chemistry and Physics and am currently writing up a PhD thesis on Nanoscience. While my scientific qualifications are not directly related to immunology, my scientific background provides me with an excellent knowledge of Biology, the ability to assess scientific materials and perhaps most importantly: access to the scientific literature so that I can assess the references and claims in this book. Nonetheless this review merely represents my opinion (albeit a scientific opinion) and is not endorsed or supported by any other body.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not an Unbiased Read 13 Nov 2009
I bought this book in the hope that it offered a sound, unbiased guide on "Raising a Vaccine-free Child". In fact what it offers is an extremely poorly written, wholly biased attack on the vaccine industry. Being anti-vaccine myself I'm disgusted that this book is the best (according to Amazon reviewers) we have to go on - it makes a mockery of our standpoint and confirms the pro-vaccine community's idea of us as single-minded, deranged, poorly-read hippies. Every chapter is filled with unhelpfully biased, unwarranted and unreferenced comments such as "Homeopaths have been treating vaccine damage ever since Edward Jenner started creating vaccine damage" - doesn't do much to instil faith in the main sway of her argument.

If you're looking for a useful read on the subject, this is NOT one to buy.

By LBatik
For a book that claims not to have anti-vaccine myths, it certainly is full of them. The "evidence" for how common vaccine injury is supposed to be is based on unexamined anecdote, the myths of anti-vaccination websites, and the misrepresentation of real research...but maybe unless you are deeply familiar with the medical field this isn't readily apparent, and it is certain that the target audience is not people deeply familiar with the medical field. It also ignores the fact that sequestering ill children does not help prevent transmission of diseases, since most of the serious contagious diseases are highly infectious for several days before any symptoms manifest at all.

Then it goes off into recommending homeopathy, which really does demonstrate that evidence is not of general concern in this book.

It is appalling that we are seeing a resurgance of what can be fatal contagious diseases based on fearmongering. This is part of the problem, not the solution.

Raising A Vaccine Free Child

I strongly urge all parents to read this book. Having witnessed vaccine damage first hand to a family member (from the whooping cough vaccine) I was deeply suspicious of the injections for my 8 week old baby. I was told that the vaccines were 'improved' and that vaccine damage "does not happen". Once I began to research the subject, I was horrified at the damage vaccines cause, which often gets denied.

This book was an absolute gem through an exremely difficult time. I decided against any kind of vaccine for my baby. As you will find from a number of books there is controversy surrounding them all. Not only does the book demonstrate (with scientific basis) the awful problems with the vaccines, which are largely ignored by the medics, but it provides invauable advice on how to effectively treat childhood illnesses if they should occur. I particularly like the chapter 'Fever is a friend' which illustrates the problems concerning fever suppressing drugs such as infant paracetamol which seems to be administered for any kind of little niggle but can prove to be extremely dangerous when certain childhood diseases are present.

I can only say from experience please buy this book, it is the best money you will ever spend.
