She's wrong about the vaccinations, yes. However, I do not take any issue with inappropriate language. This is her life, her story, her situation and her challenge. She not only has the right to be irreverent and out there in her wording, but it's probably better that way.

Medical fraud and quackery

EuSei Jan 12, 2013

Anyone considering seriously reading this book should at least read the data in this article from Arthur Allen from "Slate": http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/medical_examiner/2009/05/say_it_aint_so_o.html. I agree with Allen that "she is spreading dangerous misinformation—and that could bring some once-controlled diseases back into play." And we already have too much misinformation in the world as it is!
