Product Description


As a mother of a boy who regressed into autism immediately following hisMMR vaccination, I welcome this book unreservedly . . . Whatever yourthoughts on the issue, if you read nothing else at all on thevaccine-autism debate, this has to be the most crucial book you read. --Polly Tommey, editor of The Autism File

after seeing that " The Nature of Things " would be doing an episode on "Autism the Enigma " , I was very interested in watching , but I would be working the night it was to air , I don't watch much t.v. , but this was something that I was very interested in watching , I had asked several people to record it for me ( just in case ) , and , though they all tried , the night it aired , it was wiped out , completely , across Canada , I searched for it on the internet , and managed to get a written breakdown of what the episode was to expose , but the makers of the program were saying that they didn't know what actually happened , and that it had been wiped off of the hard drive , so for days I tried to find a link or something regarding the program , however , a couple weeks later , I finally found it , but it had nothing to do with the original written breakdown I had seen ,which suggested that gut flora , especially effected after the MMR vaccine , had been proven to be linked with autism , this only fueled my desire to know what was being purposely hidden from the public , which led me to purchase this very insightful book by Dr. Andrew Wakefield .
He put his career in jeopardy to reveal his findings , and although , I'm sure , many times over , he must have believed himself beaten by the financial "powers that be" ,he held true , forfeiting his career and home for something he believed to be right , not something that many would have the stamina to do.
What makes his whole belief ring true for me , is the fact that he did indeed vaccinate his first two children , when he had no reason to doubt that good intentions were the sole purpose of vaccination , but did not vaccinate his last two children , this act alone speaks volumes to me .

I have followed the scapegoating of Andrew Wakefield for months and I have been ashamed of the General Medical Council in UK. The antics of Brian Deer are beyond belief and I wonder who has been paying him. Lost in all the fracas is the tragedy of our children. This account by an honorable physician puts the whole sorry story in perspective. Wakefield compares the recalls by Toyota of faults in their product with the lack of recall of dangerous vaccines; indeed governments go to great lengths to deny responsibility for the destruction of children's health by vaccines. Wakefield describes his "trial" by the GMC. The main point I gleaned was that he conducted a case series, not to be confused with experiments, and yet he is accused of experimenting on children without ethical approval, which he had anyway. He was really put on trial because he had the temerity to challenge the safety of a vaccine.
Mercifully for us all he is fighting back. Way to go, Andrew, may a fair wind be at your back.
Jennifer Craig, author of Jabs, Jenner and Juggernauts: a Look at Vaccination

Please treat yourself to the other side of the story. Even if you have not been affected by autism will find this book interesting and disturbing. When held in contrast to the 30 sec sound byte media truthiness we are constantly fed you gain a deeper appreciation for how much more there is to the story. The sad part is that Dr. Wakefield acted on behalf of his patients and was selectively held to a standard, that If applied to the current pharma junk (ghost) science would negate most big pharma articles; too bad. Learn more about vaccine safety.

Excellant book. The truth comes out at the expense of little children. Dr. Wakefields research is finally being brought out. See article of Sept 3, 2013 where courts have now confirmed that MMR vaccine causes autism ..... "in fact, everything that Dr. Wakefield found back in the late 1990's concerning the MMR vaccine .... findings that cost him career and reputation, by the way .... are proving to be undeniably true." .... A must read for every parent
