This review is from: Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective? (Paperback)I urge all parents and grandparents to read this book. The information it contains will give you the confidence to make an informed decision regarding the vaccination of small children.
With news of plans to vaccinate all children and young people between the ages of 2 and 17 with a nasal flu vaccine by 2014, as well as plans for vaccinations for shingles, we all need more information than we are offered by health professionals.
Please read this important book. Now in a new 2012 edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BE BULLIED BY "HEALTH PROFESSIONALS" INTO VACCINATING YOUR BABY.,
This review is from: Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective? (Paperback)Thank goodness for books like this!
It is such a difficult decision when the time for "immunisation" for a new baby is looming.
As a new parent you read the standard NHS booklets given out by the Health Visitor and are led to believe that if these injections are NOT GIVEN then all these diseases are just out there waiting.
These booklets are often read not long after giving birth when the Mother is feeling vulnerable.
What you are not told is that if these injecions ARE GIVEN that there is a real chance of VACCINE DAMAGE.
This book provides excellent facts and figures regarding vaccinations. The book has a scientific basis and is easy to understand.
Neil Miller cites cases where vaccines have damaged babies and the results are horrific.
Parents need to read books like this to fully understand the possible consequences of these injections for which all babies are a target. A member of my family is vaccine damaged from the whooping cough vaccine (pertussis vaccine) and will never lead a normal life. This, from an injection for a disease which is so rarely seen he may never have caught it (or if he had would probably have made a full recovery).
It has now been suggested that the vaccine for Chickenpox (varicella) may be added to the schedule for the UK. It has been used in America since 1995 and the side-effects are shocking. This excellent book illustrates the severe problems with the vaccine used for a disease which is rarely dangerous. It also shows that as with most vaccines THE DISEASE STILL OCCURS IN THE VACCINATED POPULATIONS.
It would seem that these vaccines are a complete waste of money. The justification for vaccines keeping diseases at bay is being used to coerce parents into accepting these injections. When you look at research it is evident that these diseases were sharply on the decline before vaccines were introduced.
There is a financial gain for Doctors to administer these injections, they are PAID BONUSES for a high percentage of babies and children who are given the vaccines.
Remember it won't be the Doctor who is left with a VACCINE DAMAGED BABY.
It is YOUR decision as a parent whether or not to accept these injections not that of the DOCTOR.

4.0 out of 5 stars A different perpsective on vaccines,
This review is from: Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective? (Paperback)A concise and informative review of the most common vaccines highlighting the possible side effects of taking them. Fully referenced but may be biased toward avoidance but may be not.
Having a masters (MRes) in marine biology i have some knowledge of biological effect and am left thinking that vaccines are not the panacia that i was lead to believe. I will certainly think twice before using them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent research and wonderful charts,
This review is from: Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective? (Paperback)This book is easy to read and contains numerous understandable charts that are footnoted to credible sources. I buy this book 10 copies at a time and keep them in my car so I can give it to women I meet that are expecting. I normally say "Have you heard about the vaccine debate?" If they're at all open to the subject, this book saves a very detailed discussion of vaccine pros and cons.
He has a whole chapter on the following vaccine disesases, polio, tetanus, measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, pertussis, hepatitis B, chickenpox, haemophilus influenzae type B (that the hib vaccine is given for), pnuemococcus, meningitis C, hepatitis A, RSV, flu, anthrax, and smallpox.
He says that several studies have shown that injections increase susceptibility to polio. He has an awesome chart that shows the increase in polio following the introduction of diphtheria and pertussis vaccines. He also has charts demonstrating that the polio death rate was already significantly decreasing before the vaccine was introduced. Then there's another chart that shows how reported cases of polio actually increased following mass vaccination.
In the pertussis chapter, he has a great chart that again demonstrates how significantly the death rate had decrease prior to the introduction of the vaccine. About 1 in 200 children that received the full DPT series suffered a serious reaction. It really scared me that babies die at a rate 7 time greater than normal within three days of a pertussis shot!
He quotes surveys in medical journals that say that 87% of doctors do not think the hepatitis B vaccine is needed by their newborn patients. The groups at highest risk of contracting hepatitis B are IV drug users, prostitutes, and sexually active gay men. It is given at birth, 1 month, and 6 months.
He explains that Hib-vaccinated children are up to 6 times more likely to contract Hib during the week following their vaccination versus non-vaccinated children. Research shows that antibody levels actually decline immediately following vaccination. A landmark study of 200,000 children was done in Finland and published in the British Medical Journal. The group that received 4 doses of the Hib vaccine had 26% more cases of diabetes than the non-vaccinated group. The study concluded that the "increased risk of diabetes in the vaccinated group exceeds the expected decreases risk of complications of Hib meningitis"
He has another pie chart that graphically shows that 70% of doctors and nurses do not get flu shots.
One of the most shocking chart was the one that shows that in a survey 82% of doctors admitted they don't report a serious vaccine reaction! That's how many doctors admit it. How many don't admit it?
This is a wonderfully easy to understand book. While it is based on solid research, it was written by a lay person, which may account for how easy it is to read. I recommend it to anyone who is considering vaccinating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Vaccine Book,
This review is from: Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective? (Paperback)Excellent work by Mr. Miller. This is a well footnoted book, that gets to the point quickly. There is hardly a wasted sentence. Almost every sentence has one or two footnotes to back up his points.
Mr. Miller summarizes research he found in medical journals and other well researched vaccine books. His conclusion, vaccines don't work, and there are no long term studies to prove their saftey.
The only thing that bothers me is that he wants to seem to remain neutral on the subject by stating it is the parents choice to vaccinate. I don't think vaccine poison should be available to parents or doctors to give to innocent children. I'd also like to see the vaccine pushing criminals pay for their crimes. We're talking about thousands of debilitated and murdered children.
Still, you cannot go wrong with Mr. Millers book. It's very accurate and a quick read.
