Alicia Silverstone Draws Criticism for New Book

Posted Saturday April 26, 2014 3:50 PM GMT

She's raised some eyebrows in the past with her different approach to parenting, but now Alicia Silverstone is drawing criticism for the advice she gives in her new book.

Joining the ranks of other celeb moms, the "Vamps" star penned "The Kind Mama: A Simple Guide to Supercharged Fertility, a Radiant Pregnancy, a Sweeter Birth, and a Healthier, More Beautiful Beginning."

Among the thing sin the book drawing ire are Silverstone's implications that vaccines are dangerous, that tampons cause infertility and that diet is the cause of post-partum depression. She also advocates getting rid of diapers.

Her detractors claim that her tips can be medically dangerous and are not practical for the average family.
