Book Reviews:

'Katia Bailetti brilliantly tackles the complex and controversial topic of childhood vaccinations by emphasizing first   and foremost the value of informed choice. Her unique and well balanced resource does not lean for or against childhood vaccinations but instead assists the reader to explore the essential questions about all the risks and benefits. By sharing her detailed and revealing research, she equips the reader with critical   information to assist in their decision-making process. As a naturopathic doctor   she also offers a holistic view on the topic including naturopathic support to minimize the side effects of vaccinations. Her perspective both as a   conscientious medical practitioner and a thoughtful parent make this a complete and must-have resource.'

~ Dr. Christine Matheson, mother and Naturopathic Doctor in Toronto, Ontario

'Dr. Bailetti has produced a thought-provoking, well-researched and essential book for parents considering their children's  health choices. This book is a must-have...so that Canadian families can  continue to inform themselves of vaccination benefits, risks and alternatives.'

~ Kelly Dobbin, mother and Midwife in Toronto, Ontario
