This dvd reviews each of the vaccines and relevancy to today. Good information for parents and those who may choose to or not to vaccinate their children. New insight for me.

This is very good information for those who may question the necessity of all of the vaccines that our children get (up to 69 by the age of 6 in the US!!). Dr. Gordon goes through each "vaccine-preventable" disease and speaks of the real risks of catching them (for example, there have been no naturally occuring cases of polio in the USA/Canada in over 35 years -- every case since then was actually caused by the live oral polio vaccine, which is no longer in use in Canada and the USA). However, he also minimizes the actual risks of vaccines... most likely for political reasons. A good follow-up documentary to this one would be "The Greater Good" (deals with the science and politics of vaccines) and "Shots in the Dark" (focussed primarily on the science of vaccines).
