Why do we believe something? Is it because everyone else believes it? Is it because our family and community believe it? Is it because we were told to believe it by someone in a position of power and respect? Were we taught to believe it in school? Do we believe it because the idea has existed for a long time?
What if what we believed was nothing more than an illusion?
It wasn’t long ago when infections plagued the Western world. Smallpox, scarlet fever, measles, typhoid, diphtheria, whooping cough, and other diseases were once considered a tragic part of life. Starting in the mid-1800s, there was a steady drop in the deaths from all these infectious diseases, decreasing by the mid-1900s to very low levels. The elimination of these diseases is one of the most amazing, yet unsung, public health revolutions in history.
That journey from disease cesspool to our modern world is a tale of plagues and famine, crushing poverty and filth, lost cures, individual freedoms versus state might, protests and arrests, and much more. Dissolving Illusions paints a historic portrait with quotes from the pages of long overlooked medical journals, books, newspapers, and other sources to reveal a startling history that has been disregarded. With this historic information and originally researched data in the form of myth-shattering graphs, Dissolving Illusions shines new light onto issues that are assumed to be clear-cut and settled long ago.
Many thanks to Dr. Suzanne Humphries for her kind permission to reproduce these myth-shattering graphs from Dissolving Illusions on the VINE website. It is highly recommended to also buy the book Dissolving Illusions in order to acquaint oneself with the historical background these astonishing graphs – most of them based on official government statistics – have originated from.
Many of the graphs concerning infectious disease mortality rates show that by far the greatest part of the remarkable decline in the number of deaths caused by infectious diseases over the past century occurred BEFORE vaccinations against these diseases were introduced, and that their introduction did not contribute in any way to the decline, which simply continued as if nothing had happened. So, where is the evidence let alone the proof that vaccines have saved millions of lives? There doesn’t seem to be any such proof. It is also interesting to note that deaths caused by scarlet fever declined like those caused by so-called “vaccine-preventable” diseases, even though no vaccine was used against scarlet fever.
