Over the past 50 years, rates of autoimmunity and chronic disease have exploded. In this provocative book, Dr. Thomas Cowan argues for a direct causal relationship to a corresponding increase in the number of vaccines American children typically receive. The goal of these vaccines is precisely what we’re now seeing in such abundance among our chronically ill children: the provocation of immune response. Cowan looks at emerging evidence that certain childhood illnesses are actually protective of disease later in life.

Revolutionary book that simplistically turns the Modern Western Medical Model on its head! A must read for anyone slightly interested in wellness, especially of children. Incredibly insightful and spared from hyperbole; Dr. Cowan brilliantly and concisely depicts a paradigm shift in both cellular biology and the human immune system.
