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 parents protect their children both from the wiles of the vaccine industry and from harmful germs. There are no trendy anti-vaccination myths, the information is fully referenced and factually based.
The book explains the difference between the self-resolving childhood diseases, like measles, chicken pox and mumps, which do not need intervention, and the non-self-resolving infectious diseases, like polio, tuberculosis and tetanus, which do need holistic intervention to make them go away. The beneficial childhood diseases cannot be prevented by nutrition or hygiene, while the bad infectious diseases are preventable and treatable by holistic means.
Doctors and nurses are trained to treat the childhood diseases in ways that increase the risk of complications, and they are not taught about the many scientific studies that prove that the childhood diseases reduce the risk of chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease in later life.
In a detailed chapter on the myth of "herd immunity”, Raising a Vaccine Free Child reveals how the myth was concocted, and empowers parents to withstand the accusation that their vaccine free children are a threat to others. There are also chapters about the toxic ingredients and accidental contaminants in vaccines.
The book demonstrates that the long-term consequences of vaccination have not been properly assessed at any time in any country, despite the vaccine industry having had over two centuries in which to collect such data. It demonstrates that even today vaccines are not scientifically tested for safety before being licenced for use on the public.
A look at the history of vaccination reveals that it is an unscientific procedure that is based on falsehood, cruelty, and supposition.
Edda West, founder of Vaccine Choice Canada:The book is really a dual purpose book. Wendy meticulously deconstructs the myths of vaccination, and she also empowers parents with information about infectious diseases that helps to dispel fear.
I read Wendy's book Raising a Vaccine Free Child when the first edition was published, and I immediately recognised it as an essential piece to fill a huge gap in the vaccine awareness literature. Wendy's meticulously researched book addresses the many worries we experience when our children get sick, and she offers concrete, practical advice about the ways we can help our kids get through.
