I read both of those and agree. The first gives a herbalist and nurse's perspective, and the second (written by a physician) seemed to give a good balanced perspective (ie. there are risks either way...just balance them in making the decision that's right for your situation). Both contained references to all statements made.
In Canada, the Canadian Pediatric Society published "Your Child's Best Shot" and it's the standard recommended reading by the medical establishment. So...to be fair I read it. While it presented some good information on the diseases, I was amazed that there was NOT ONE reference to any information they presented. And it was completely biased towards vaccinating and obviously targeted towards those who fear mercury; Each vaccine had a section where they listed ingredients... Get this: All they said after the heading "ingredients" was that "this vaccine does not contain mercury". Like we're stupid enough to think there's nothing else. And to top it all off, it is disclosed on the second or third page that the principal author is also a PAID consultant to three pharmaceutical companies that manufacture vaccines. Canada is definitely not immune to incestuous ties between public health policy-makers/influencers and pharma-companies! So any fellow crazy canucks out there - don't waste your time on this one!
In Canada, I also referenced the BC Centre for Disease Control website that has reports on disease outbreaks. This really helped. For example, the most recent report indicated there had not been one case of acute Hepatitis B in anyone under the age of 18! Surpise surprise...all those needle sharing babies in daycares (ha). However, meningitis and pertussis were more frequent than I thought.
