superb eye opener, despite it being such an old bk

He delivers clear and useful advice that is beyond his time. He is a brutally honest doctor who does not mince the hard truths. He truly deserves a salute for daring to go against the mainstream brainwash.

A must for any parent or caregiver

I have been recommended this book by many for a long time now, and it did not disappoint. Although the studies and statistics are now outdated, the core material is extremely important for everyone to know and realise. Maybe now more than ever with the increase in childhood mental and autoimmune diseases becoming epidemic. Much of the information provided can easily be applied to adult ailments also. Highly recommended!

One of the most important books in your life...

Dr Mendelsohn was a very good person. Requires to have courage to go against a whole professional life to speak in behalf the truth. 60 % of Modern medicine is not true, 80 % is against the principle of "do not harm" and 90 % is more for profit than to protect your health. Listening or reading this book should be a requirement for every parent or adult person in the world. Please Amazon, put this in your Kindle library. It is need it.

a must for all parents

A great and educational book on how to put your mind at ease and raise your children without pumping them full of drugs and relaxing to let their body do what it's supposed to do.
