Gives a great understanding of all options.

This book was recommended by my girlfriend who at one point was anti-vax and I was pro-vax. We had a heated debate about our views on this topic, and then realized that we both wanted the same thing in the end.

We are about to have a child together and this book gave us a lot of help when it comes to reaching a solution for vaccination concerns. I'm grateful for Dr. Sears and his ability to listen to parents and understand our concerns.

Vax sending kids off to the slaughter house!!!

I urge you mommas out there. Read this book. The autism rate in US is 29.5 students per 1,000. Why has autism rates been on the rise and a public crisis since 2000? Read this book and you will know more about what’s in vax then your pediatrician. Mercury, formeldahyde, aluminum, monkey kidney tissue, embryo tissue from aborted fetuses. These are all ingredients in our child’s vax. Children and esp baby cannot process heavy metals. The vax research is unbiased funded by big pharmaceutical the manufacturers of vax. The pharma is is bed with the fda and cdc bc they fund political campaigns to keep their drugs passing fda approval. It’s the biggest lie and they are using our children as pawns. Don’t let your child be a victim. The pharma has already paid out $4 billion dollars yes $4 billion dollars and has $2 billion left in the fund to pay for children harmed by vax. Which makes each family sign non disclosure forms saying big pharma are not responsible for the damage and can’t even wiff the a word for autism was the damage. We don’t hear about this in the left wing media do we? What about a 20/20 NYT, Washington’s Post on that one? The journalists don’t have the spine. We have herd immunity. The herd is vax and don’t get the disease and so you won’t get the disease. I’m 41 did you know vax aren’t lifetime. You have to continue to get boosters. So having been out of school for nearly 20 years I have managed not to get any of the life treating diseases listed in this book. They want to scare you parents and pressure you and guilt you into vaxing. I won’t with my son. My intuition was right now I know the reasons why. Read this book. Watch the documentary on amazon prime called “ for the greater good”. Don’t let your child be another victim.

The perfect book for those about to have kids

I’m a black male and with all the negatives I have seen about getting my son to be vaccinated were negative but I didn’t know to truth or have the real research to back it up. Even though he is pro vaccines he is very transparent and helped a lot. I clearly won’t get my son all the vaccines but some I feel are needed. So it’s great now to have the confidence when I tell the doctor why I do it fo not want each one.

Very good attempt

Good book, however, I feel he will amend after undeniable new research on the effects of MMR and autism, formaldehyde and many other ingredients that we have not even known the effects of.
