Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 20, 2008
With the recent public controversy over Amanda Peet's comments about vaccinating children which appeared in the current issue of Cookie Magazine, it's important for parents and caregivers to not let media hysteria determine the best health options for their child.
Noted pediatrician and lecturer, Dr. Jay Gordon, who was also interviewed for the magazine, responded to Peet's recent comments, saying, "There is an honest case to be presented for giving vaccines to children and an honest set of facts for delaying vaccines, setting alternative schedules and even giving no vaccines at all to healthy children."
Dr. Gordon is the host of a newly released DVD called "Vaccinations? Assessing the Risks and Benefits," which presents a frank and thorough overview of immunizations that will empower parents to make the best possible choices for their child.
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."
"Vaccinations? Assessing the Risks and Benefits," gives parents important information on the appropriate times to vaccinate, school immunization requirements, ways to boost your child's immune system naturally and more.
"Despite all the recent controversy, we hope at least it prompts people on both sides of the issue to engage in an open and constructive dialogue on this important subject," commented Erik Gudris, Marketing Director, of Choices, Inc.
Retail price for "Vaccinations? Assessing the Risks and Benefits," is $24.95 and is available for purchase at http://www.vaccinationsdvd.com.
