Book Review: 'VACCINE SCIENCE REVISITED: Are Childhood Immunizations As Safe As Claimed?' by James Morcan and Lance Morcan (Foreword by Elisabet Norris)
‘Much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may be simply untrue’ - Lancet
New Zealand novelist and screenwriter Lance Morcan is a former journalist and newspaper editor with twenty published books to his credit. He regularly writes in collaboration with his son James Morcan, an actor, writer, podcast host and producer who resides in Sydney, Australia. Together they have published eight novels as a team.
In many of their books the authors discuss contemporary topics such MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX, ANTIGRAVITY PROPULSION, UNDERGRAOUND BASES, GENIUS INTELLIGENCE as well as history-based novels and fiction. In this new book VACCINE SCIENCE REVISITED they once again take on controversial subject matter and offer bold questions about the universal use (or misuse) of immunizations through vaccinations. Their roles become those of investigative journalists. After a solid and affirming Foreword introduction by Medical Laboratory Scientist Elísabet Norris the authors open their investigation with a warmly familiar reminiscence: ‘ Remember those infamous pox parties where parents deliberately exposed children to diseases such as the flu virus, measles and chickenpox? They were especially popular in the United States and in Britain at one stage – the idea being that children build immunity after being exposed to an infectious disease like chickenpox, which is more dangerous to adults than children. That was back in the day, before vaccinations were available, although it seems such activities persist to the present day in some quarters if mainstream media reports are accurate.’
The vaccines that are studied and discussed are DPT, Polio, Hepatitis A and B, H. influenza, Meningococcal and Pneumococcal, MMR, Varicella, Rotavirus, and the roles of DNA, genetics, epigenetics, and a fine explanation of our immune systems.
Under the banner of ‘It’s definitely time for society to revisit the subject of vaccines and vaccine safety, especially where our children are concerned, and open up the scientific debate once more’ – Lance and James Morcan present one of the most sensitively and honestly researched platforms for the discussion regarding the validity or misuse of the vaccination concept and practice. Yes, there will be many who disagree with their premise initially, but read carefully and follow the logic and find a different way of viewing the entire concept if immunology. Highly Recommended – especially for physicians and other medical personnel.
