Has anyone seen Dr. Sherri J. Tenpenny's DVD titled "Vaccines: the Risks, the Benefits, the Choices"? Has anyone read her books? Which do you recommend more? Dr. Donald ****** Jr (a minimal/anti vax doc) has recommended her video and I want to see what you thoughtful people had to say.<br><br>
Thanks,<br>

I really liked her DVD. She only uses the CDC and medical journal articles to back up her claims. I actually held a viewing party for her DVD last night! My next purchase is going to be her DVD Vaccines: What CDC Documents Reveal. Apparently there is only a 15 minute overlap between the two DVDs, so it should be pretty much all different infof!

Where can you get her dvds? I think they'd be a good addition to my doula library.

I went to sebarnes's DVD party, and I really liked the DVD. I thought the information on it was well thought out and convincing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> Unfortunately, there's no way Dr. Tenpenny can cram all her information into 3 hours, so there are many unanswered questions that the DVD raises. I want to have my dh watch the DVD, but I know he will concentrate on the unanswered questions, grr. And he likely won't take the time to read books or do research to find out more.

I have Dr. Tenpenny's DVD (Vaccines: What CDC Documents and Science reveal) but haven't watched it yet. I did order her book (Vaccines: The Risks, the Benefits, the Choices, a Resource Guide for Parents) and I was extremely disappointed. The book was not only not edited, it can't possibly have even been proofread. I'm not trying to be nitpicky, but a source like that simply lacks credibility. She also fails to cite her source for many of the claims she makes, and it's written so argumentatively that it would turn off any semi-objective reader. Based on her book alone, she just isn't a credible source in my opinion. There are far better resources for the same information. I'm still willing to give the DVD a try, though.

Really? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> That's disappointing. I was hoping that the book would be very well sourced and include thorough information. I agree that if there are even tiny errors, credibility is affected. The same thing happened in the DVD. Sometimes she would say something like "7" but "17" would show up on the screen. You are pretty sure that she just mis-spoke, but you can't know for certain. Other concerns I had were when she gave only one quote from a study (it's very easy to craft a quote that contradicts the data), or she would give a statistic about the rate of something in a vaccinated population, but not give the rate for the un-vaccinated. I was hoping that the book(s) would go more into depth on those sorts of things.

Klg, it was really bad. I've read What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's Vaccinations; Neustaedter's The Vaccine Guide; Vaccinations: A Thoughtful Parent's Guide; and Mendelsohn's How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor, and Tenpenny's book was not one I'd ever recommend to anyone. It was really disappointing. I sent it back.
