  1. Yes! This man is incredibly well educated, and a great advocate for those who are being wrongly accused. He is certainly one of the best doctors in regards to rickets and autism. He fights for what he knows is true, and doesn't jump on the child abuse bandwagon.

  2. I have some provocative information on the damage of vaccines to our companion animal pets from the aluminum (graded a 3 out of 4 carcinogen by WHO in the IARC in 1999) and from mercury. This information will help him even more in his talks. I have spent the last quarter of a century witnessing vaccine damage in animals and have documented the results. Exposure of this information is relevant to anyone who is concerned about vaccine safety. Please let me know how I can send in PDF files of the material. The poor pets are being jabbed annually and even those practice moving to every three years are showing vaccine damage that pretty much is the entire list of Internal Medicine cases we see.
    Please let me know how to contact Dr. Ayrub to relay these files.
