The Truth About Vaccines: Making the Right Decision for Your Child
As we lurch from scare to scare about vaccines, we no longer fully trust what we are being told by doctors. In a series of investigations over seven years into all the new and commonly-prescribed vaccines (including HPV), autism, immune diseases and allergies, Dr Richard Halvorsen spoke to health officials, researchers, fellow doctors and parents.
He discovered that vaccines are being given to children without knowing enough about them. Parents are regularly being misguided about vaccine effectiveness and their safety. Doctors are not being provided with the right information. They even live in fear of being seen to challenge perceived wisdom. Medical researchers often find that impartial vaccine research is impossible - those who dare speak-out, risk being discredited.
By presenting all the original medical research in an easy, readable form, Dr Halvorsen allows parents to distinguish fact from fiction and make an informed decision about the right choice for their child. This new edition was expanded with two new chapters on autism and new medical and pharmaceutical research, and contains an alternative vaccination schedule for both NHS and private patients.
Dr Richard Halvorsen has been deeply involved in vaccination issues since 2000. He is one of the few family doctors in Britain to offer the three MMR vaccines separately, and was instrumental in raising awareness of the dangers of mercury. A GP in the NHS for over 25 years, he contributes regularly on health-related subjects to the national and medical media. He also runs the successful BabyJabs clinic in London (www.babyjabs.co.uk).
Dr Richard Halvorsen is an NHS GP, who has been deeply involved in childhood vaccination issues both in his clinical practice in Holborn, and publicly in the media. Dr Halvorsen's is medical commentator to ITV lunch-time news and has appeared on BBC Breakfast and Channel 4 News; his comment is frequently sought by the Telegraph, Times, Daily Mail and Express and Mail on Sunday.
