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 book is beyond wonderful! I would like to give a copy of this book to every person that I know. It is well balanced and doesn't scream, "anti vaccine crazy." It is well written and goes deep into the facts that parents deserve to know. If you are questioning vaccines and want to know the truth, invest in this book. It is well referenced and everything is backed up by credible documentation, GET THIS BOOK! you will be so glad that you did. I know that I am.
