Again and again, throughout the book Gotzsche points out where there have been flaws in the design of trials, concealment of evidence, and conflicts of interest. His criticisms extend to some medical journals, the European Medicines Agency, the Cochrane Collaboration, and the World Health Organisation. He concludes that there is far too much we don’t know about vaccines, and that it is too easy to get them approved based on substandard trials, conducted by the manufacturers, with no proper controls. He says we know virtually nothing about how receiving multiple vaccines affects us, and what, if any, long-term effect on our immune systems current practice might have.
One chapter goes into great detail about the annual flu vaccine. ‘Influenza prevention has become an industry fuelled by poor science and propelled by conflicted decision makers,’ he quotes researcher Tom Jefferson as saying. Unsurprisingly, Gotzsche doesn’t have an annual flu jab.
In this book a great deal of thought has been put into conveying the science, but much less into making it accessible and interesting for ordinary people. The writer can ramble. Sometimes his book reads like a scientific paper. Sometimes the detail seems interminable. His opinions will almost certainly annoy some people. ‘One of the major problems in healthcare is the many busybodies who love telling others what they should do’. I don’t think he can be accused of that.
It's always clear that the decisions are up to reader who may seek appropriate medical advice.
There is some technical language, but in most cases it's explained clearly enough to allow the argument to be followed even if statistical subtleties may be hard for some to appreciate in full.
In one or two places there's a little too much focus on problems within Cochrane, but it's understandable, and those not interested in this sad story can skip a few paragraphs without much loss.
I reluctantly bought this on Kindle. I would have preferred a hard copy to put on the shelf with my other books by Gøtzsche. Glad to have read it though as the topic is more interesting and subtle than I knew.
