Item description for The Vaccination Dilemma by Christine Murphy...
In their first five years of life, children are expected to undergo 37 doses of eleven different vaccines, yet relatively few parents are aware of the risks of chronic disease, injury, or death that some vaccines can present. A growing body of research has linked immunization with autism, seizures, asthma, arthritis, Crohn's disease, and even hyperactivity and learning disabilities; yet we continue to use vaccination as "insurance" even against diseases that no longer pose a significant threat.
Christine Murphy has compiled a book that presents the vaccination dilemma from multiple perspectives. It clearly describes the immune system and its workings---and what science does and does not know about them. It offers suggestions and resources for parents whose children are sick, whether from a common childhood illness or from a vaccination reaction. And it makes a case for an alternate view of disease---as a teacher that allows us to develop physically and spiritually, and as a necessary test of strength that we have chosen out of our destiny.
This book will help educate parents about the vaccination dilemma and prepare them to make, in consultation with one or more health professionals, educated vaccination decisions for their children.

About The Author: "Traveling throughout the United States and locations throughout the world, I finally found the perfect place to call home. Looking out my back lanai, there is a small pond where the wild-life will gather and the flowers bloom in exotic pinks and purples. This is my place of peace and freedom that I have searched for and where my husband and crazy African Gray Parrot, Raider, hang out with me. It's the place where my creativity runs wild as I spin tales of adventure and passion. I have been writing in my head since I was a teenager and I finally realized I needed to capture these unique characters, civilizations, conflict, passion, and love in writing. To capture the strong, spirited, and powerfully attracted characters and all of their adventures and share it with others who are searching for that very thing to make their lives more exciting. If I accomplish nothing else in life, I hope to share the romantically magical worlds and the lovers that I see with all of the passionate readers out there.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Vaccination Dilemma?
helpful in relation to childhood illnesses Sep 26, 2008
One thing which supports the current vaccination program is parental fear of childhood illnesses--this book does a good job of exploring the role of certain sicknesses in the normal development of children.
Not a great book if you need detailed information on vaccines--I'd recommend the Romm book if that is what you need.

The vaccination dilemma doesn't discuss vaccines. The book is scattered & disorganized. It gives little to no info on vaccines and none of it is backed up with data. The author then jumps off onto a chapter on Treating Childhood Illnesses and preaching the gospel of Anthroposohic medicine??? What does any that have to do with vaccines??? The only potentially descent chapter was on Treating the Effects of Vaccinations. However, she gave no information so it too was a miss. This is a terrible book, avoid it. There are so many other better ones that describe the vaccines, their pros & cons, how to avoid & legally exempt your child, how to administer them safety, and how to treat potential side effects. My favorite is the vaccination book by Dr. Stephanie Cave.
