In Vaccine-nation, Dr. Moritz’s central thesis is that vaccines can precipitate toxic overloads, inflammation and other unintended side effects which can be more dangerous than the disease to be prevented. Vaccines are said to contain dangerous ingredients like formaldehyde, anti-freeze agents and antibodies. In addition, vaccines can cause genetic switches to go on or off, according to the author.

These findings beg for the need to consider replacing vaccine additives which are inorganically based with ones that derive from natural substances which are organically based. The author doesn’t provide too many details on this aspect and he should. 

Dr. Moritz points out that vaccinated children have more asthma,allergies, ear infections, apnea, tonsillitis and hyperactivity. Interestingly, aboriginals cut their skin and expose it to dirt to acquire a natural immunity against dangerous toxins. 

And so, what does a parent do if a child isn’t vaccinated? The author doesn’t make this clear. In my own experience, check with a practitioner of Alternative or Complementary Medicine. There is a National Center for Complementary or Alternative Medicine of the National Institutes of Health. Due to the plethora of non-conventional medicinal protocols, the NIH has created a National Center for Complementary or Alternative Medicine to advise patients.

In this reviewer’s experience, there are important health tonics which benefit children like acidophilus which promotes good bacteria, Vitamin C, Quercitin
and other antioxidants. These are potential alternatives to vaccination if parents listen to the author and don’t vaccinate their children due to the inorganic additives. 

The author provides advice on what to take after utilizing antibiotic drugs. “If you do choose to employ antibiotic drugs, bear in mind that they interfere with
normal digestion by killing off beneficial colon bacteria. These are the very bacteria that make vitamin K, the B-vitamins cobalamin and biotin, help us digest many plant and dairy foods, strengthen the immune system, and repress the overgrowth of pathogenic microorganisms.

After antibiotic therapy, all persons should take yogurt and an acidophillus supplement for a month or two to help restore a normal, healthy bowel environment. I have found shamefully few doctors who tell this to their patients,” said the author. (1)

A child born with virtually no immune system receives vaccines loaded with toxins and the result can trigger disease processes that are far worse than the illness to be prevented by the vaccine, according to the author.

The author points out that there are lower infection rates due to improved sanitation, nutrition and living conditions- not vaccinations per se.

Another problem, according to the author, is that vaccine potency can be increased via adjuvants. These adjuvants increase potency tremendously so that a much smaller amount of the vaccine can have the same or similar effect.

“Once this toxic sludge is injected directly into the blood, it will inevitably make its way into the brain, spleen, kidneys, liver, joint fluids, blood vessel walls,
lymph vessels and connective tissues of intestines, lungs, breasts and other parts “, according to the author.

The author explains how large scale vaccinations in poorer countries have had the unintended effect of increased infertility. On the other hand, snake venom has been known to induce immunity against future rattlesnake bites. The immunity is caused by the body generating anti-serum to neutralize the toxic effects of the snake venum. The achieved cellular immunity protects the body against future exposure to the same toxin.

This is true unless the degree of exposure greatly exceeds the bodily detoxification and compensation ability. So, a carefully constructed vaccine can have a beneficial outcome as demonstrated by the snake venum application provided by the author. The reader should understand that vaccine protocols aren’t universally bad.

Overall, the book mentions important implications for current and future vaccination programs. There is a need to search for alternatives to vaccines loaded with toxins and inorganic chemical combinations which could confound natural bodily processes. The author doesn’t provide too much detail on viable vaccination alternatives for parents.

The author also suggests a possible alteration of DNA switching sequences. The presentation raises enough questions to revisit the scientific control group design which proves or disproves the efficacy of individual vaccination programs devoid of harmful side effects or unintended health consequences.

Patients should discuss the efficacy of individual vaccines and alternatives with their personal physicians or health practitioner(s) in the experience of the reviewer. Always ask the health practitioner for a list of ingredients or additives for the vaccine you are considering. This information should be readily available to all patients. Discuss practical alternatives and contraindications for any vaccine considered by you.

Dr. Andreas Moritz (born January 27, 1954) is an author,
lecturer and a practitioner of Ayurvedic Medicine. Ayurvedic medicine (also called Ayurveda) is one of the world’s oldest medical systems. It originated in India and has evolved there over thousands of years. In the United States, Ayurvedic medicine is considered a CAM whole medical system.

This complete system of theory and practice has evolved over time in different cultures and apart from conventional medicine. Examples of whole medical
systems include traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, homeopathy, and naturopathy. Many therapies used in Ayurvedic medicine are also used on their own as CAM-for example, herbs, massage, and specialized diets. (2)

The book has a very extensive resource and reference section including citations from the following: 
o pediatrics applications
o National Institutes of Health
o Dr. Jonas Salk Hearings
o Natural News
o Soil and Health.org and many others

About Dr Joseph S Maresca

I've taught approx. 34 sections of collegiate courses including computer applications, college algebra, collegiate statistics, law, accounting, finance and economics. The experience includes service as a Board Director on the CPA Journal and Editor of the CPA Candidates Inc. Newsletter. In college, I worked as a statistics lab assistant. Manhattan College awarded a BS in an allied area of operations research. The program included courses in calculus, ordinary differential equations, probability, statistical inference, linear algebra , the more advanced operations research, price analysis and econometrics. Membership in the Delta Mu Delta National Honor Society was granted together with the degree. My experience includes both private account and industry. In addition, I've worked extensively in the Examinations Division of the AICPA from time to time. Recently, I passed the Engineering in Training Exam which consisted of 9 hours of examination in chemistry, physics, calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, probability/ statistics, fluids, electronics, materials science/structure of matter, mechanics, statics, thermodynamics, computer science, dynamics and a host of minor subject areas like engineering economics. A very small percentage of engineers actually take and pass the EIT exam. The number has hovered at circa 5%. Several decades ago, I passed the CPA examination and obtained another license in Computer Information Systems Auditing. A CISA must have knowledge in the areas of data center review, systems applications, the operating system of the computer, disaster recovery, contingency planning, developmental systems, the standards which govern facility reviews and a host of other areas. An MBA in Accounting with an Advanced Professional Certificate in Computer Applications/ Information Systems , an Advanced Professional Certificate in Finance and an Advanced Professional Certificate in Organizational Design were earned at New York University-Graduate School of Business (Stern ). In December of 2005, an earned PhD in Accounting was granted by the Ross College. The program entrance requires a previous Masters Degree for admittance together with a host of other criteria. The REGISTRAR of Ross College contact is: Tel . US 202-318-4454 FAX [records for Dr. Joseph S. Maresca Box 646 Bronxville NY 10708-3602] The clinical experience included the teaching of approximately 34 sections of college accounting, economics, statistics, college algebra, law, thesis project coursework and the professional grading of approx. 50,000 CPA examination essays with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Additionally, membership is held in the Sigma Beta Delta International Honor Society chartered in 1994. Significant writings include over 10 copyrights in the name of the author (Joseph S. Maresca) and a patent in the earthquake sciences.
