In the second edition of this popular book, Dr. White takes readers on a tour of the human immune system, explores the nature of immune disorders from cancer to HIV and presents evidence that immune messengers called transfer factors can help the body beat a wide variety of diseases for which effective treatments are lacking. In language that is easy to follow, Dr. White explains how transfer factors help the body fight viruses (herpes, hepatitis C, HPV, HIV), mycobacteria (tuberculosis), cell-wall deficient bacteria (Lyme), cancers, autoimmune diseases and other conditions. Like vaccines but safer, transfer factors can be used to immunize the public against diseases before they spread. This book is an enjoyable read about a fascinating topic. As in the first edition, Dr. White blends science, history, medicine and politics with compelling story telling and wit. Whether you are a patient, doctor, health enthusiast or just a fan of good science writing, this is one to keep on your book shelf. Bound to be classic in the alternative medicine literature.

About the Author:

Aaron White is a neuroscientist with an interest in how the brain and immune system interact and how to improve the health of both. He has a PhD in biological psychology from Miami University (in Ohio) and currently is an Assistant Professor in Psychiatry at Duke University Medical Center. He stumbled across the topic of transfer factors while reading about emerging treatments for immune disorders and diseases. Amazed by the wealth of research behind this little known but already proven means of treating and immunizing people against diseases he wrote this book about them. The book contains a summary of what we know about transfer factors and the roles they could play in 21st century medicine and public health. And the news is even better the second time around!

Review:

In this second edition of his book, White continues to raise awareness of the important role transfer factors play in responding to potential threats to the health of the human body. Transfer factors, found in white blood cells, carry information that helps coordinate the immune system's response to these threats. Transfer factors from one person (or animal) can be introduced into the immune system of another person, potentially transferring an improved ability to combat threats to the recipient's health. The author presents sufficient evidence that transfer factors are effective weapons against disease and should be more widely used. White encourages physicians to consult the abstracts of published studies he has included in this book. With so many medical mysteries still unsolved, it doesn't make sense to ignore treatment possibilities. A convincing plea to consider an untapped resource in the fight against disease. --Kirkus Discoveries
