Deadly Choices: How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All by Paul A. Offit M.D. Paul Offit, MD
[This review was taken down from Amazon. You can see why!]
I award this book one star as it's a propaganda classic, and Dr Offit also
gets my wolf in sheep's' clothing award, of the past decade. In fact he is so
good at this he even believes he is a sheep!
Some measure of his Pharma insanity can be gleaned from the fact his website once proclaimed:
"In fact, Dr. Offit's studies show that in theory, healthy infants could safely get up to 100,000 vaccines at once."
Other examples of his Pharma insanity (untruths) are:
"If they were willing to look at all the studies that were done with vaccines, they would find that they are, I think without question, the safest, best-tested thing we put into our bodies. I think they have a better safety record than vitamins."
In point of fact vaccines typically get under 2 weeks 'safety' testing, and always done by the makers! To show you the true nature of vaccine 'safety', everyone should know the MMR Urabe story:
This was an MMR vaccine with the Urabe mumps strain, called Pluserix & Immravax in UK, Trivirix in Canada. Canada withdrew licences for the vaccine in May 1988, yet the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation still went ahead and introduced it into the UK, in 1988! How is that for vaccine safety??!! Four years later, on September 14, 1992 it was eventually banned in the UK after it was revealed that children developed meningitis. On Sept 16, 1992 the New Zealand government withdrew Pluserix. Five years later in 1997: the Smith Kline Beecham Urabe MMR jab was used in a mass vaccination programme in Brazil!!
that is the true nature of the vaccine beast.
Dr Offit: "I think without question the smallpox vaccine has severe adverse events that occur at a rate far greater than any of the other vaccines that we use today. Which means that the smallpox vaccine, is I think, without question, our least safe vaccine. But it is absolutely safe if one defines 'safe' as benefits outweigh risks in a situation where the disease is present. When the disease isn't present, then one only is frankly aware of the risks, because there are no benefits."
Yes, in his world, safe means 'benefits outweigh risks'! He doesn't tell you there are absolutely no benefits to vaccines (more than likely he doesn't even know this), and there are huge risks.
"There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunization of children does more harm than good."---Dr. J. Anthony Morris, former Chief Vaccine Control Officer and research virologist, US FDA
Vaccination can be demolished in 4 ways, all independent of each other, but combined are devastating.
1. By Vitamin C, read "Curing the Incurable: Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases and Toxins (3rd EDITION)
where you will find Vitamin C is the cure for all infections (also Cot-death prevention), something vaccinators have been keeping secret, for over 50 years!, and, as Dr Levy says:
"Many viral infectious diseases have been cured and can continue to be cured by the proper administration of Vitamin C. Yes, the vaccinations for these treatable infectious diseases are completely unnecessary when one has the access to proper treatment with vitamin C. And, yes, all the side effects of vaccinations...are also completely unnecessary since the vaccinations do not have to be given in the first place with the availability of properly dosed vitamin C."
"Amazingly, vitamin C has actually already been documented in the medical literature to have readily and consistently cured both acute polio and acute hepatitis, two viral diseases still considered by modern medicine to be incurable." - Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD
2. By statistics. Read the proper statistical demolition by Neil Miller: Vaccine Safety Manual for Concerned Families and Health Practitioners, 2nd Edition: Guide to Immunization Risks and Protection
3. Disease theory. Read: Good-Bye Germ Theory: ending a century of medical fraud and The Sanctity of Human Blood: Vaccination Is Not Immunization, 9th edition, 9th edition (this also uses statistics)
4. True reality of vaccine damage. Only 1% of vaccine reactions get reported, and reactions are hugely suppressed, and MDs who blow the whistle, like Dr Wakefield, get burnt at the stake as a warning for any more truthers thinking about exposing the true vaccine reality. Read: Evidence of Harm: Mercury in Vaccines and the Autism Epidemic: A Medical Controversy, along with 'Silenced Witnesses Volume II: The Parents' Story' and 'Callous Disregard' by Dr. Andrew Wakefield, MD. also Vaccines, Autism and Childhood Disorders: Crucial Data That Could Save Your Child's Life
these are just some of the, at least, 50 anti-vaccine books that have been written over the alst 50 years.
when you have finished reading them you will see Dr Offit in a clear light, and it isn't pretty! Then you will know why he hates anti-vaccinators.
"I think that the biological case against Thimerosal is so dramatically overwhelming anymore that only a very foolish or a very dishonest person with the credentials to understand this research would say that Thimerosal wasn't most likely the cause of autism."---Dr. Boyd E. Haley, biochemist at the University of Kentucky, one of the world's top experts on mercury toxicity.
