Due to the fact that I have limited time to read I would like to know before I go any further (I just read the introduction). He already states (in the intro) that vaccines have saved lives (millions) so now: Do I just read over that piece of misinformation and is the rest of the book interesting?

I am also reading MT's book and the graphs there clearly show a decline before vaccines were introduced...

So, did you like the book? Yes, no, maybe?

Thanks for your comments.

I think the book is fantastic. I would definetly recommend it. It will give you a ton of insight into how the system works, how studies are altered, how the CDC is corrupt and there are no "independent studies," how much work the mercury moms put towards bringing this issue to light, etc.

to me it was invaluable in really comprehending the massive cover up that went on surrounding thimerosol. even though its been largely removed from vaxes, it does not change the corrupt system that allowed that to happen (and be removed) without a huge scandal.... lord knows what else is in vaxes that is just as harmful that they will never cop to or admit.

i would definetly read it. it also gives you a good perspective on how "studies" can be altered to say what they want them to say. i think its an EXCELLENT book.

Awesome book. Cracked my denial that the government would keep info from us. That statement and others that Kirby has made about the good of vaccines only lends him credit IMO.

I really like this book more from a political/economic standpoint of vax rather then purely a medical standpoint. I think it is a great read!

Go Green I don't vax either, why mess with perfect?

great book. I even got to see him speak in person. Fabulous resource to have at your disposal.

That blurb at the beginning (about vaxes saving lives) convinced a few provaxers I know to go ahead and read the book.

I thought it was good too. I was a bit put off by the provax stuff in the intro but there isn't a whole lot of that throughout the book. I almost got the feeling that it might have been put in there just to avoid turning away readers who would be too quick to write the book off as having an anti-vax agenda and not read the rest. It is an excellent account of why we cannot count on the federal government to be looking out for our best interests.

I came across a neat site by Participant Production who released Syriana & North Country. The purpose is to use the media as a way to inform the public, thereby helping make social change.

They are in the works of developing the Evidence of Harm Movie. I think this is very good just because a lot of people would rather see a movie than read the book. Here is the link:

Here is the link to the website re: the book:
