Book Description

Review 'This is the best book ever written on this subject. I cannot imagine how many hours were spent researching the information. The chapter on the HPV vaccine is one of the most incisive, data-packed and well-argued pieces of scientific journalism I have ever seen. This book will go a long way toward helping people make critical vaccine decisions.''Neil Miller's Vaccine Safety Manual is a comprehensive, scientifically-documented MUST READ for every parent, healthcare professional and policymaker who faces the dilemma of compulsory vaccination.' Read more From the Publisher The author spent nearly three years researching vaccine studies from around the world and summarizing them in this monumental work. Each chapter in this Vaccine Safety Manual begins with a definition of the particular disease for which a vaccine has been developed, including data on who is most at risk, disease prevalence and severity. The vaccine for each disease is then analyzed according to its safety and efficacy profile. The safety sections include studies documenting vaccine-associated morbidity and mortality, as well as several personal stories from vaccine victims attesting to the real toll on human lives. Some chapters also include case histories from the U.S. government's own national database of vaccine damage -- VAERS. The efficacy sections analyze data from multiple sources to reveal the prophylactic potential of each vaccine: how likely it is to protect against the disease and reduce its incidence throughout society. Excerpts from congressional hearings, and vaccine debacles of historical significance, are included in this book as well. Charts, graphs, tables and other illustrations supplement the text for added comprehension. Read more See all Editorial Reviews
