Robert S. Mendelsohn also published a book called "How to Raise a Healthy Child... In Spite of Your Doctor," I bought a copy off Amazon. It´s from 1984 so a lot of stuff is outdated, particularly when he talks about vax, (old schedule and diff vaxes) but the overall theme is about how to avoid unnecessary drugs/procedures.
Some of the major topics:
"Drs. Aren´t Taught the Importance of Nutrition" "Drs. Rarely Investigate the Drugs They Use" "Why Weight Charts are Misleading" "Childbirth Should be a Natural Process" "Don´t Start Solid Foods Too Early" "Children Cry Because they Have Problems"
And then he goes into what the parents should do for whatever ailment your kid has, before you call the pedi.
On vax he wrote:
He does have some references listed in the back of the book, but does not cite specifics in the chapters.
He then discusses what to do if your child should have a vpd...
It´s a pretty interesting book, (although some things outdated), especially to hear his perspective as a dr. who practiced for many decades, many decades ago. His attitude towards measles is fairly non-chalant (I know sometimes people bring up the brady bunch episode about measles and it being a normal childhood disease back then), he additioanlly wrote: " I would consider the risks of associated with the measles vaccination unacceptable even if there were convincing evidence that the vaccine works. There isn´t."
I guess it was a good thing he wrote this at the end of his career/life!!
too bad now everyone here will associate his name with a hate website...
