The overwhelming benefits of childhood vaccinations appear indisputable. They ve saved millions of lives and are revered as one of the greatest public health interventions of all time perhaps even the greatest success story of modern medicine. BUT IS IT TRUE? GP, and father of two, Richard Halversen has spent five years researching and writing this alarming study of vaccines: do they work, do we know enough about them, are they safe, what are the risks, are there ways of making vaccines safer? 'I am investigating what we patients and doctors alike are not being told. I am deeply disturbed by what I have found and how information about our health is increasingly held ransom to vested interests rather than freely available ... this book had to be written to inform parents, honestly, and without bias, so that they can form their own decisions.'
