Trevor Gunn - Vaccination
Vaccination: The Evidence and Alternative Ways of Looking at Health
This is a presentation on the current and historical evidence surrounding the controversial issue of vaccination. By examining the detail as well as the overview, we shall reveal how vaccines affect the physical body, as well as their impact on our mental and emotional faculties.
Trevor explores the wider context of disease and immunity, illustrating how current models of thinking have developed with regard to immunisation, immunity and infectious illness. This enables us to see that the scientific evidence does, in fact, point to a more holistic view of disease.
This presentation provides insight into the alternative ways of looking at health and disease outside of fear and risk analysis, and a way out of the dilemmas faced by many in their vaccine decisions. Yet, far more significant than exposing severe side-effects or an ineffective intervention, is the impact of conventional medicine on our perception of illness, and ultimately our preconceptions as to what we are capable of as human beings.
By investigating not only which ideas and approaches have dominated modern health care, but also why, we shall investigate the psychological, philosophical and commercial pressures that have helped to shape modern medicine and continue to shape us as human beings.
