I Just Found This Online...

I just came across this book, "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's Vaccinations", available online for free! Has anybody read it yet? I haven't, so if anybody has a review, please let us know. Thanks!

Yeah, I have that book and I read it. Dr. Cave is pro-vaccines. She gives vaccines out in her office and she lists her own recommended vaccine schedule in the book. Its impossible for a book to be totally unbiased, and I would call this a "pro-vaccine" book, but I'll give the benefit of the doubt that Dr. Cave is trying really hard to be "un-biased" and the book does document a lot of the horrific, damaging things about vaccines, so I like the book for that overall because the book exposes a lot of the unknown truths about vaccines, even if its a pro-vaccine book. I'd recommend the book for people to read, but certainly not as their one and only source because people should read anti-vaccine sources too, so that they see the full picture rather than only reading pro-vaccine sources. This book is way more "un-biased" than Dr. Sears' The Vaccine Book and I've seen how so many people are calling his book "un-biased" when its really a pro-vaccine book because Dr. Sears thinks that vaccines eradicated diseases and that they really work, and Dr. Cave thinks the same things too.

totally agree with above....

there are better books out there that are more "neutral" on the subject

Thanks! I would rather read something more neutral, or even anti-vax. You saved me valuable time, to research someplace else. Lord knows there is enough pro-vax literature out there!

I really liked Cave's book. She presents each disease, it's risks, the risks of vaccine, who should not get it...I think it is quite balanced.

I like Cave's book as an introduction to the potential risks of vaccine damage. For someone just learning about vaccines, especially if they start out believing that vaccine injury is rare, it can be a useful resource. But there are definitely better vaccine books out there IMO, particularly if you want to know more about letting your children be vaccine-free.

I agree with ASusan. I think the book is far more balanced, but more than being pro- and anti-vax, it's pro-research. She explains the diseases, the vaccines, how vaccines are tested (not enough), and why some vaccines were created (money).

I recommend it!

I read it. It was the first book I read on vaccines and part of what made me pursue more info and other books, articles, etc. When I got to the end of the book and saw the vax schedule, it sort of threw me for a few minutes. Trying to think of some other books off hand. Anyone want to share the books they liked the best for op?

It was the first book I read on the subject. It sparked my interest and I've been obsessively researching ever since. If I was to read it again though right now, I would see it as pro-vax probably because of my stance.
