Wonderful dive into the Science of Immunity

Thoroughly enjoyed Immunity: The Science of Staying Well. Such a thorough overview, practical information and answered lots of questions I’ve wondered about regarding immunity. An absolute delight listening to Dr. Macciochi narrate the text, and helpful if you tend to sort of skim the more scientific language! I’ll definitely dip back into the audiobook and have made notes for reference as I listened.

could have been really interesting

Interesting subject but I struggled to listen to the monotone narration, I just couldn't absorb any of it.

Narration sent me to sleep

I've heard Jenna on a couple of different podcasts and she's very engaging, but I don't think she was the best choice to narrate the book. It sounds like it's probably really good, covering loads of information in an accessible way, but most of it went in one ear and out the other because of Jenna's voice. It's a very pleasant voice, but perhaps just too pleasant! I found it soporific and had to try hard not to just tune out.

Inaccurate information.

The narration was awful. To me, I felt like I was listening to some unenthusiastic government broadcast. The main issue was the chapter on vaccines. Important information is skipped and inaccurate information used instead. For example, she claims vaccinated can’t infect others. It’s been proven many times that they usually do. Also, vaccines are NOT rigorously tested, hence no double blind placebo studies have ever been done. Then only formaldehyde, aluminium and mercury are mentioned as “insignificant “ toxins. Not true, and she neglects to mention the other toxic chemicals such as polysorbate 80. Even before this, she mentions germ theory but doesn’t elaborate on the fact that this is all based on an outdated flawed theory. I can’t trust any more of the book based on those significant flaws and so asked for a refund.
