Years ago, one of my daughters was given a DPT shot. With misgivings, I had acquiesced because I was informed that there wasn't any way that the state of California would allow her to attend school unless the pharmaceutical companies and their medical stooges were given the chance to pump her full of dangerous potions.

She had such a severe reaction that I worried that it would inflict lasting harm to her or even threaten her life. Obviously, she didn't have the "booster" that was required, and I got an MD friend to write a letter stating that it would be too dangerous.

What annoyed me most was that I had to go to someone else to get "permission" to be released from possibly killing my little girl. So blind is the government and under the financial thumb of organized medicine and the drug companies that we have become one of the most health enslaved countries in the world. As far as health is concerned, we are definitely not the land of the free.

While each part of the DPT may be dangerous, the pertussis is probably most widely accepted as being potentially harmful. In fact, so many adverse reactions and deaths have been reported over the last 50 years, with all the resulting litigation, that it's my understanding that only one company dares to continue to make it. You might say they've "cornered the market."

Fortunately with all its faults, we live in an age of communication and enlightenment. No longer does everyone docilely pull the ears of the medical man of war.

No greater example of this enlightenment can be found than in the writings and lectures of the late Robert S. Mendelsohn, M.D. Disgusted by what he perceived as an abuse of faith between the patient and his profession, Dr. Mendelsohn spent the last years of his life attempting to expurgate the deception and sophistry that has permeated medicine.

For years Mendelsohn authored a newsletter called "The People's Doctor." During this time the public was informed, in Dr. Mendelsohn's rather direct style, not only of the alarming negatives of allopathic medicine, but also the value of alternative therapeutics.

Good news! Someone has taken those newsletters that were concerned with immunization and produced a compendium of information. The format of the letters was that of questions and answers, so you might say that it could be everything you wanted to know but weren't afraid to ask.

This is a fighting book. It's filled with frightening information to present to the MD or government agency who wants to jeopardize your health, or that of your family. It's not something to be taken lightly. It's a health war out there and you have the duty to get out there and do battle.

In fact, I believe that it's important to get a lot of these volumes to give to selected patients. Since the word "doctor" means "teacher," so the dissemination of this information is necessary and expected.

One of the wonderful things about the written word is that it can be as imperishable as the truths it presents. Robert Mendelsohn is no longer alive in the physical sense, but he still lives through the wisdom he was willing to share with the public and other professionals.

"But doctor, about that shot ..." is a disturbing classic that cannot be read without provoking consternation and anger so it's advised not to read it after a meal. The important thing is to get it -- read it -- and give it to others. Only in this way can things be changed.
