Immunization Awareness Month: A look at Dr. Bob Sears

July 31, 2009

Science Based Medicine, a blog that provides in depth articles about the relationship between science and medicine, has a great post today by Dr. John Snyder, Chief of the Section of General Pediatrics at St. Vincent’s in NYC, looking in depth at the Dr. Bob Sears’ book, “Vaccine Book: Making the Right Decision for your Child.”  In the book, Dr. Sears – who part of the AskDrSears.com family – provides a bunch of anti-science language and sweeping generalities that seems to appeal to a lot of new parents. (The book is a best seller, and is ranked #414 on Amazon).  Dr. John walks through a number of fallacies contained in the book – and provides some excellent information for parents looking for additional research material.
