National polls show that Americans are increasingly concerned about vaccine safety and the right to make individual, informed choices together with their healthcare practitioners. Vaccine Epidemic focuses on the searing debate surrounding individual and parental vaccination choice in the United States. Featuring more than twenty experts from the fields of ethics, law, science, medicine, business, and history, Vaccine Epidemic urgently calls for reform. It is the essential handbook for the vaccination choice movement and required reading for all people contemplating vaccination for themselves and their children. Louise Kuo Habakus and Mary Holland edit and introduce a diverse array of interrelated topics concerning the explosive vaccine controversy, including the human right to vaccination choice, the ethics and constitutionality of vaccination mandates, personal narratives of parents, children, and soldiers who have suffered vaccine injury, vaccine safety science and evidence-based medicine, corrupting conflicts of interest in the national vaccine program, what should parents do? A review of eight advice books on vaccines that span the gamut.

This is a most interesting book. No one in politics should have the last word on this subject, only valid studies should, but we've seen the largest criminal penalties levied over the previous decade against GlaxoSmithKline, Eli Lilly, HCA and others. Untrustworthy. Recently on the Democracy Now! show, Ms. Holland appeared and made an excellent case for pro-choice on vaccinations, while the man who followed her and refused to appear together with her, Dr. Offit, attacked her repeatedly and scurrilously, without her ability to respond because he was afraid to appear with her?!?!?!? He's a scientist???? Or is it the large sums of money he receives from Merck?????? Offit has stated that a very young child 2-3 years can accept 100,000 vaccines? Oh really. . . .
