Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 20, 2008
A two-hour educational DVD, "Vaccinations? Assessing the Risks and Benefits," has recently been re-released with updated features. The DVD informs parents with straight talk about vaccinations, and includes advice on how to boost your child's immunity from disease, naturally.
The volatile debate on childhood vaccinations continues. A barrage of news stories and outbreak scares give mixed messages: Reports of two New York children dying from the flu led to calls for parents to vaccinate against influenza.
Congressional hearings have been held to investigate the safety of vaccinations. Researchers claim no link between the MMR vaccine and autism, but parents of children with severe developmental problems remain unconvinced. Some parents who have chosen not to vaccinate have been accused of being irresponsible, and have suffered legal repercussions.
In the DVD, "Vaccinations? Assessing the Risks and Benefits," nationally recognized pediatrician, Dr. Jay Gordon, presents a frank and thorough overview of immunizations that will empower parents to make the best possible choices for their child-- with a thoughtful assessment of the facts and consideration for the needs of the individual child and family.
In this two-hour seminar, Dr. Gordon addresses the science and the medical solutions to one of the most difficult decisions every parent will face. Beholden to no special interests--neither the medical community, the pharmaceutical industry, nor the "anti-vaccine" camp--Dr. Gordon advocates the individual freedom of each parent to decide if and when vaccinations are appropriate for their child.
"It's not that I'm "anti-vaccination," says Dr. Gordon, "the problem is the way we vaccinate."
Also in the program, parents learn:
- The risk and benefits of vaccinations
- Vaccine additives and preservatives
- The appropriate times to vaccinate
- School immunization requirements
- Is it safe not to vaccinate?
- Ways to boost your child's immune system, naturally
Retail price for "Vaccinations? Assessing the Risks and Benefits," is $24.95 and is available for purchase at http://vaccinationsdvd.com.
