Dr. Peterson writes, “The childhood immunization schedule when my daughters were born was far different from that in place today.  In the 1970s and early 1980s children were routinely given ten doses of vaccine prior to school entry, which protected them from seven different diseases.  Today’s children are expected to take 36 vaccine doses covering 14 different diseases by their sixth birthday!”

“Concerns exist today that were not present prior to 1980.  Over the past three decades there has been a twenty-fold increase in the incidence of autistic disorders.  Children following the recommended vaccines are injected with an enormous amount of aluminum, a toxic metal.  Early vaccination has been linked to an increased risk of childhood diabetes and asthma,” continued Peterson.

Dr. Peterson goes on to give several recommendations for concerned parents.
