Book Description

Jan. 15 2008
This bestselling immunization handbook (new, updated 2012 edition) evaluates each vaccine for safety, efficacy, and long-term effects. It contains the most comprehensive, up-to-date, uncensored data available -- information that many doctors don't even know. It includes the most recent studies, several case histories detailing vaccine-induced damage to children, and pinpoints for parents exact conditions that may put their own child at high risk. In addition, health alternatives are offered, along with legal options to mandatory shots. It contains 30 graphs and diagrams plus more than 900 footnotes and scientific references so that all of the information may be confirmed. Parents, educators, health professionals, and other concerned individuals have very few sources of information permitting them to make informed choices. But concerned parents are pleading for answers to their many questions. Doctors only tell them one side of the story; there is another side. Helps concerned people make wise and responsible decisions. Includes information on ALL childhood shots, plus current data on HPV (cervical cancer), shingles, smallpox, and flu vaccines. Over 150,000 copies sold!

Product Description

From the Publisher

Are vaccines really safe and effective? Ten years ago, a concerned father asked this very question. No one provided him with convincing evidence so he researched the scientific literature on his own and wrote a vaccine book that went on to become a bestseller (more than 100,000 copies sold). Today, this profound and compelling immunization handbook, "Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective?," has been completely updated and revised. It contains 30 graphs and more than 900 references. This essential immunization resource is the most well-documented vaccine book in the world!

"Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective?" includes the latest information on ALL recommended childhood shots plus anthrax, smallpox, and flu. In addition, this remarkable vaccine guide...Evaluates each vaccine for safety, efficacy, and long-term effects; Includes the most recent studies and provides numerous case histories; Pinpoints for parents exact conditions that may put their own child at high risk; Documents correlations between vaccines and several new diseases; Outlines current vaccine laws and offers parental options to "mandatory" shots; Helps all concerned people to make wise and responsible decisions.

When New Atlantean Press first published "Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective?" some people opposed our efforts to educate parents and health practitioners. Of course, many others were deeply grateful. Today, this book has been translated into several languages. In addition, chiropractic colleges stock it in their bookstores and midwives recommend it to their clients. Many pediatricians and other doctors purchase this book as well. Often, they are surprised by the number of valid studies documenting vaccine hazards. This information was not taught in medical school.

This book will continue to arouse strong emotions. It is well-written and well-documented. Furthermore, this latest edition of "Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective?" is much more extensive than the earlier edition. For example, the previous book had 300 notes and references; this new book has more than 900 notes and references -- a threefold increase in researched data! The previous book had 12 illustrations; this new book has 30 charts and graphs. The previous book was just 78 pages; this new book has 128 pages -- nearly twice as much new information!

This latest edition also answers many more questions than the earlier edition. For example, how are the vaccines made? Do they really contain thimerosal, a mercury derivative? Are the chickenpox and MMR vaccines manufactured in human fetal tissue? Do credible studies show correlations between the current autism epidemic and vaccines? These questions and many, many more are answered in this book.

From the Author

I wrote "Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective?" so that parents and health practitioners may make more informed decisions regarding vaccines. I do not advocate them, nor do I presume to know what is best for other families. I merely try to present the facts in a clear and straightforward manner.

After reading my book, parents often contact me to express their gratitude. They appreciate the simple format complemented by extensive research. Every statement in my book is referenced to a valid scientific study or other reputable source of data. Information that would have otherwise remained hidden is revealed so that you can make informed decisions.

Some critics argue that I don’t believe vaccines reduced the incidence of disease. My "beliefs" are irrelevant. In some cases, no credible evidence supports this contention. In other cases, convincing arguments can be made for and against this basic claim. More importantly, several vaccines have been linked to new diseases. I thoroughly document these correlations. Thus, even if a vaccine is instrumental in reducing case numbers of a single disease, what overall benefit have we gained if it simultaneously causes two or three new ailments? For example, the polio vaccine has been scientifically linked to increased cancer rates, the Hib vaccine to rising diabetes rates, and the hepatitis B vaccine to serious neurological disorders. The studies are summarized in my book.

Parents, you are responsible for the welfare of your children. Research this topic thoroughly until you are comfortable with your decisions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great info on vaccines-but not much new Feb. 17 2003
This book contains alot of good information on vaccines. But if you have read alot of books like it, you won't find a whole lot that is new. But it was still worth the purchase to me. If you havn't read much on this subject, get it! It's great! Though I would like to see more information on vaccinated crowds vs. Unvaccinated crowds in all different agles- rate of disease along with the severety of disease, typical health, living habits, diet habits etc. I am not for vaccines but I would like to see some real non-biased info come out some time soon.

By Sue K.
The latest edition of this book is fantastic! I read both the earlier edition and this latest edition and must say that the improvements are phenomenal. I was looking for scientific studies to confirm both vaccine benefits and risks. This book summarizes hundreds of studies from peer-reviewed medical journals such as the British Medical Journal, the American Journal of the Medical Association, The Lancet, the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, Pediatrics, the New England Journal of Medicine, Pediatric Nursing, Clinical Infectious Diseases, Archives of Neurology, the American Journal of Epidemiology, the National Academy of Sciences, the CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Reports, Journal of the National Cancer Institute, data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and many, many others. Studies from dozens of foreign journals published in Japanese, German, and other languages are reviewed in this book as well.

When I read the earlier edition of this book, the documentation was good, but substantial studies linking vaccines to new diseases was sparse. A lot of effort was devoted to vaccine failures and studies showing efficacy problems. However, in this new updated book, the latest safety and efficacy studies are included plus there is a greater focus on the newest research showing that vaccines appear to be causing an exchange of diseases. For example, the section on polio dramatically illustrates this point. The author lists numerous peer-reviewed studies published in lesser known yet quite prestigious medical journals -- Virology, Oncogene, Cancer Research, Neoplasma, Cancer Genetics and Cytogenics - linking the polio vaccine to brain cancers, bone cancers, and tumors. These studies are not discussed in the media, and I have not seen them summarized in other vaccine books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great resource! Dec 10 2003
This book, while decidedly antivaxing, is a fantastic resource. Miller cites every piece of information he uses in his argument that vaccines may not be as helpful as the medical community leads us to believe.
Choosing to vaccinate your child can be a difficult decision, and I appreciated the information presented to me here.

The author has done extensive research into the effects of immunizations and presents much data that would be lead a person to believe that vaccinations do much harm and provide no benefit.
In the forward by George R. Schwartz, MD, he states that "a voice is seeking dialogue and requiring counterpoint" (page 8). Dr. Schwartz does not provide this counterpoint but only states that he "advocates the standard vaccinations" (page 7). But this is critical for the average reader to make an informed decision. Both sides of the issue should be presented in this book in order to help the reader make the best decision possible. Perhaps a format where the author presents his findings with an opposing view of from the medical establishment and rebuttals would serve the reader best.
The book presents some very convincing statistics, however I was very disappointed in the misleading manner some of the numbers were reported.
Many times the author points out that infection rates were falling before the vaccine was introduced and implies that the continued rate of decline was not due to the vaccine. Although the prior decline is relevant it doesn't prove that the vaccine is not effective. The infection rate might have stabilized at a higher rate without the vaccine. Even if the vaccine were effective this argument could be used to show that it wasn't. The data that needs to be compared to resolve this are infection rates for comparable populations of those vaccinated versus those not vaccinated.
Another example is on page 29 where it states that "In 1989, 89% of all school-aged children in the U.S. who contracted measles were adequately vaccinated". This is a misleading way to present the numbers. It makes it impossible to evaluate the effectiveness of the vaccine.
