Disease, Vaccines, and The Forgotten History
Suzanne Humphries MD
Every single GP, medical professional and parent thinking about vaccinating their child desperately needs to read this. It provides thoroughly researched, scientifically accurate and interesting background information, dispelling convincingly and authoritatively, the official account of the role and safety of vaccines. Without the information in this book it is really not... tbc
Not too long ago, lethal infections were feared in the Western world. Since that time, many countries have undergone a transformation from disease cesspools to much safer, healthier habitats. Starting in the mid-1800s, there was a steady drop in deaths from all infectious diseases, decreasing to relatively minor levels by the early 1900s. The history of that transformation involves famine, poverty, filth, lost cures, eugenicist doctrine, individual freedoms versus state might, protests and arrests over vaccine refusal, and much more.Today, we are told that medical interventions increased our lifespan and single-handedly prevented masses of deaths. But is this really true?Dissolving Illusions details facts and figures from long-overlooked medical journals, books, newspapers, and other sources. Using myth-shattering graphs, this book shows that vaccines, antibiotics, and other medical interventions are not responsible for the increase in lifespan and the decline in mortality from infectious diseases. If the medical profession could systematically misinterpret and ignore key historical information, the question must be asked, “What else is ignored and misinterpreted today?”Perhaps the best reason to know our history is so that the worst parts are never repeated.
Now in my 70s I have believed in the value of the prevailing medical culture as espoused by the NHS, doctors and Government. But not any more. It was after having a rabies vaccination that made me so ill for a month that I nearly had to cancel my holiday to Sri Lanka that prompted me to research vaccinations. This book is a fantastic contribution to my knowledge. Exquisitely researched the references are conveniently at the bottom of each page on which they are mentioned. The conclusion the reader is led to is that vaccinations are to be avoided. The pharmaceutical industry have squeezed out natural remedies for infections that herbalists etc have used effectively for centuries. The global human damage caused by vaccinations is a crime against humanity, no less and this book expertly makes its case. I couldn't put the book down.
