The British Society for Ecological Medicine’s conference next week on the ‘health hazards of prevention – vaccinations and pharmacoprophylaxis’, at which Dr Andrew Wakefield will be a guest speaker, tallies well with the recent publication in the USA of The Vaccine Epidemic, a compendium of 26 chapters by a wide range of scientists, doctors, lawyers, human rights experts and those whose families have suffered vaccine damage.
Subtitled ‘How Corporate Greed, Biased Science and Coercive Government Threaten Our Human Rights, Our Health and Our Children’, there can be little doubt as to where the authors are coming from. But when faced with an ever rising number of what are effectively compulsory childhood vaccinations (refusal to allow your child to have the full course, while not against the law, can bring serious repercussions in terms of withdrawal of medical support and exclusion from certan schools and activities) parents who are concerned about the fallout from the multiple vaccination of very young children might wish to read this book.
They might also like to read the articles which the BSEM sent out from others involved in the debate around how ‘bad science’ can be, and is, misused for political ends. And… Heather Fraser’s History of the Peanut Allergy Epidemic (reviewed here) – another seriously worrying investigation into the fallout from vaccinations. Then, in a couple of weeks time, they can also read our report on the BSEM’s conference… Watch this space.
