In the 1940s, there were about 9,000 child deaths a YEAR from pertussis. Now we have a vaccine... but parents have started refusing. That worries me. A lot. Their children have NO voice in this.
At present, the American population is roughly DOUBLE what it was in the 1940s. And we now have 10-20 deaths a year from pertussis. If the anti-vaccine half wits get their way, we'll lose our herd immunity and that can be VERY bad.
This is a dangerous book by a person who does not believe in REAL science and is hurting people. I wish I could give it half a star.
I would have awarded it 5 stars except for its insistence that the patient not be immunised against measles to begin with. In my experience, homeopathic remedies are most effective when the subject is free of illness. Given the highly contagious nature of measles, vaccination is essential, particularly when you consider the life-threatening dangers that the disease presents when left untreated.
That quibble apart, I must confess a sneaking admiration for an honours arts graduate with such a profound knowledge of epidemiology. I'm put in mind of others such as Lord Monckton who are so authoritative on subjects outside their field of practice.
The best thing is to prevent measles with a vaccine.
Edit to add: There is large outbreak of measles in Wales. And this article "Neal's Yard promotes homeopathy for measles. This could kill real children" in the Telegraph [...], explains why this fashionable nonsense is dangerous.
Some better reads:

Do yourself a favour - go and see your GP instead. Leave the mumbo-jumbo of homeopathy well alone. You never know - following this book could kill a child, and it'll almost certainly harm at least one.
