Publisher's Summary

Dr. Jerry Kartzinel and Jenny McCarthy have put together the first book that will give parents all the necessary information about the Defeat Autism Now (DAN) school of treating autism. Beginning with diagnosis, Dr. Kartzinel will show parents how to make simple changes to their child's environment and diet that are safe and easy for parents to try at home and that can result in marked improvements for autistic children. He will also explain some of the more advanced therapies that DAN doctors use and the way that parents, alongside a qualified medical professional, can determine whether or not such treatments would benefit their child.

This book is dangerous if you listen

Jenny McCarthy has been on a crusade to eliminate vaccinations, despite their success reducing or eliminating dozens of nasty infections (some of which still plague the underdeveloped world) and despite the fact that dozens of studies have disproven any connection with autism. I would argue the modern vaccination system is the greatest achievement of modern medicine and has done more to eliminate death and sickness than any other treatment. Why does Jenny want to eliminate it, despite the benefits and the lack of downside risks? Presumably to sell books. She also advocates vitamins which have no demonstrated affect on autism (or anything else for that matter), and encourages heavy metal chelation, despite its limited benefits and heavy risks. This is a therapy that should only be discussed by medical practitioners in severe cases, and never by pop-healers who confuse gullible parents who are struggling with raising their children in a complex world. Avoid this book at all costs.
