Description

One doctor’s surprising answer to the epidemic of autoimmunity and chronic disease. 

Over the past 50 years, rates of autoimmunity and chronic disease have exploded: Currently, one in two-and-a-half American children has an allergy; one in 11 has asthma; one in 13 has severe food allergies; and one in 36 has autism. While some attribute this rise to increased awareness and diagnosis, Thomas Cowan, MD, argues for a direct causal relationship to a corresponding increase in the number of vaccines American children typically receive - approximately 70 vaccine doses by age 18. The goal of these vaccines is precisely what we’re now seeing in such abundance among our chronically ill children: the provocation of immune response. 

Dr. Cowan looks at emerging evidence that certain childhood illnesses are actually protective of disease later in life; examines the role of fever, the gut, and cellular fluid in immune health; argues that vaccination is an ineffective (and harmful) attempt to shortcut a complex immune response; and asserts that the medical establishment has engaged in an authoritarian argument that robs parents of informed consent. His ultimate question, from the point of view of a doctor who has decades of experience treating countless children, is what we are really doing to children when we vaccinate them.

A must read for any family.

this information needs to be the jump off point for any body working with an autoimmune condition or starting a family. Tom Cowan lays the information out simply and eloquently and forces you to start looking at these topics from a different perspective.

Wow

I thought Dr. Cowan was brave to write his book on cancer, but this one goes to the heart of the current medical and political establishments far more so. Congratulations must also be given to Chelsea Green for publishing a book like this, and for publishing Dr. Cowan’s other work. This is not something to be taken lightly. In the age of Google censoring natural health information online, a return to books might be our only source of information in the future.

A wonderful book, full of eye-opening perspectives on health and history. Well documented.

Excellent book on how immunity really works

Dr Cowan did an excellent job of communicating how the immune system truly develops and results in healthy immunity against infectious disease. This process does not require or need to include vaccinations. And it is not uncommon for vaccinations to interfere with this process and result in chronic disease.

Fresh insight into vaccination debate.

Fresh insight into vaccination debate. I never stop learning and being amazed about non flexibility and stiffness of official medicine.

Hear both sides

Over the past few years I have become more and more disillusioned about the reality of vaccines and their role in man-made diseases. I spent a great deal of time reading the peer reviewed research on both sides but wanted more discussion from the scientists and doctors themselves. So I downloaded to books to listen to: “Vaccines Did Not Cause Rachel's Autism” by Dr Peter Hotez, and this book “Vaccines, Autoimmunity, and the Changing Nature of Childhood Illness” by Dr Thomas Cowan. Both are recognized pedestrians and both are on opposing sides of the vaccine debate. Dr Hotez, who by all definitions is an expert in vaccines and how they work, provides little to no explanation of how they work with the immune system and engages his readers/listeners as though they are too uneducated, and even too stupid, to comprehend the intricate process by which the body and vaccines work. In contrast, Dr Cowan not explains in detail how these processes work, but also explains what led to the misconceptions that are now pervasive in western medicine. Dr Cowan seeks to empower his audience with knowledge and support, whereas Dr Hotez chose to insult his listeners and spend nearly his entire time ridiculing parents and professors who are exposing the truth about vaccines and the injuries they cause. I challenge anyone to listen to both of these books and come to your own conclusions.

Loved

Loved this book which I felt was less an assault on vaccines per se and more a recommendation on how to view and live life. Narration was a bit too quick.

Profound!!!

Revolutionary book that simplistically turns the Modern Western Medical Model on its head! A must read for anyone slightly interested in wellness, especially of children. Incredibly insightful and spared from hyperbole; Dr. Cowan brilliantly and concisely depicts a paradigm shift in both cellular biology and the human immune system.

Very informative

I learned a lot more than I expected to. Every parent should read this book not only for their children,but also for themselves.

Needed Understanding!

This has been the best book so far for me to understand this recent class of illnes, why the US is plagued with them, and what can be done to change things.

Great writing style!

Contradicts self

I was impressed by his book about the heart, but
In this one... the contradictions are ver difficult to swallow. He states that infections are good to train your immune system but that is exactly what immunizations do. He states there is no elevation of immunoglobulin in asthma, but immunoglobulin E can be elevated in asthma and allergies.
He mentioned Coley's toxins were good, but diphtheria vaccine does the same thing.
Sorry, I can not recommend this book
