    Kindle songuarachando.co.uk ó On Immunity: An Inoculation MOBI ´ On Immunity: immunity: pdf, inoculation ebok, On Immunity: mobile, On Immunity: An Inoculation KindleThis book isn't what I thought I expected a historical record of the development of vaccines as well as a debate about whether or not parents should vaccinate their children and I got that for the first few chapters Then Biss launched into a serious of personal essays about the birth of her son taking him for shots and obsessing about the transfusion she had to get following

    Kindle songuarachando.co.uk ó On Immunity: An Inoculation MOBI ´ On Immunity: immunity: pdf, inoculation ebok, On Immunity: mobile, On Immunity: An Inoculation KindleThose of us who identify as what is called pro vax parents who not only vaccinate their children but who feel passionately about it are not exactly shrinking violets Frankly we can't afford to be although the vast majority of parents vaccinate their children we do it as a matter of course for the most part and do not feel a driving need to speak up about having done so any than we brag about taking our kids to the dentist However this silence has allowed a vocal and dangerous minority of no vax slow vax and anti vax parents to dominate the conversation about immunization to disastrous effects We're faced now with measles outbreaks pertussis clusters which have killed infants even mumps outbreaks in college kids this year Because we're so

    Kindle songuarachando.co.uk ó On Immunity: An Inoculation MOBI ´ On Immunity: immunity: pdf, inoculation ebok, On Immunity: mobile, On Immunity: An Inoculation KindleThis book is a collection of essays from the author's perspective as a doctor's daughter and a mother It informs the reader about immunity viruses history of some diseases clinical trials and vaccination It also explains the concept of herd immunity and the process involved in finding a vaccine for a disease I found this book very relevant to the current crisis of coronavirusThis book does not focus only on hard science It sheds light on how healthcare impacts as well as gets impacted by politics economics morality and prejudice It was interesting to read about how the metaphors we use to describe disease and immunity can influence our thought process about healthI liked how the author referenced books by professionals to back up her claims and occasionally uoted fiction or recounted her own experience when she focussed on philosophical grey area
