New Book Reframes The Vaccine Controversy


If the vaccine controversy has reached full boil, allow Bernice Hausman to at least reduce the heat.  Hausman works at the Penn State College of Medicine, as the humanities chair.  So she views medical issues from beyond the confines of medical science and practice. 

And in the Vax/Anti-Vax debate, she finds a lot of fingerpointing and minimizing of concerns.  Hausman's new book is called Anti-Vax: Reframing the Vaccination Controversy

The book traces the roots of the skepticism and seeks common ground between sides that are throwing gauntlets and accusations.  The author visits with an overview.
