'If I wanted to fill this book with a lot of nonsense, it would have been easy. But, the message had to be made above all. So, this book gets to The Point in a way that may wake some parents up or even shock them into reality,' said Callahan. 'When it comes to the future of our children, which equates to the future of our world, we cannot rely on unproven theories or experiments.' Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book will be available upon its release through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or Gary Callahan has spent most of his life as a 'nose-to-the-grindstone' type of person who has worked in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry for over 40 years.
