Parents' anxiety about their children contracting vicious germs and untreatable diseases is understandable. The news is filled with stories of resistant "superbugs", contaminated hamburger and spinach, bird flu, "flesh-eating" germs, and the West Nile Virus. In a world seemingly full of microscopic danger, where can concerned parents turn to protect their kids? Here, a respected pediatrician and infectious diseases expert brings common sense and real science to answer parents' most pressing questions about the warfare that germs are waging on their children. This book offers an accessible, comprehensive handbook for parents and physicians. By combining the latest scientific findings on disease prevention and treatment with Grandma's ages-old wisdom, Dr. Rotbart demystifies childhood infections.--From publisher description.

Was very interested in the topic, but could not get into this book. Very educational in terms of the science behind different virus/bacteria transmission and affects (I think), but after trying to read it on several different occasions, I started to think that maybe I'll just read a couple more parts and maybe just dealing with the stomach flu is better than going through this book start to finish.
