Roman Bystrianyk co-authored Dissolving Illusions with Suzanne Humphries.

It challenges everything we’re told about vaccines, arguing that they have not been responsible for the decline in infectious diseases, and that they might actually have worsened things.

There is increasing concern that vaccination may be contributing to the rise in chronic diseases such as asthma, autism, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases.

Book overview

The book begins by looking at the living conditions in the 19th century (mostly in the USA and the UK), which were often subpar.

People lived in crowded, unsanitary conditions, and they often drank crappy water. These factors were the primary cause of the high rates of sickness at the time.

Which not only makes sense, but is also supported by the data.

It then goes on to discuss the history of vaccines, showing that they were not widely used until the 20th century, and that they had pretty much no impact on the decline in infectious diseases.

In fact, the data shows that vaccines might have actually made things worse.

Vaccination is not the same thing as immunization. Many people are vaccinated but are not, in fact, immune.

The Cutter Incident

For example, the Cutter Incident (1955) was deadly.

About 200,000 children and adults were given a polio vaccine manufactured by Cutter Laboratories.

The introduction of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis and oral polio vaccine among young infants in an urban African community was associated with a doubling of the mortality rate.

Peter Aaby, epidemiologist

The shots were given after they were officially approved and caused 40,000 cases of polio, killed 10, and paralysed over 200.

They trusted the experts.

Polio vaccine drive, circa late 1950s


The measles vaccine was introduced in the 1960s when measles had mostly disappeared.

So, what caused the massive reduction?

Possibly others factors, such as:

  • improved sanitation,
  • cleaner water, and
  • better nutrition.
What happened to measles before 1968?

There is absolutely no reason to believe the nonsensical claim that a vaccine eradicated measles.

False assumptions

The medical system is based on a number of false assumptions, including the belief that most diseases are caused by germs, as well as the belief that drugs and surgery are the only effective treatments.

We are constantly told not to do our own research, in spite of information being readily available.

We are constantly told to trust the experts™, in spite of them having no idea what they’re talking about.

The Covid era has taught me not to trust anybody in a self-appointed position of authority.

Germ theory

Germ theory, on which the entire medical establishment is based, is not supported by historical and scientific evidence.

It really isn’t.

In short, it is the idea that most diseases are caused by germs such as bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms. Accordingly, germs invade our bodies and make us sick, spreading from person to person through coughing or sneezing or physical contact, or by touching contaminated surfaces.

Or, you know, by simply living (of which Malthusians don’t approve)

However, there is a growing body of evidence suggesting that many (if not all) diseases are actually caused by lifestyle factors such as diet, stress, environment and lack of exercise (hence the non-pharmaceutical eradication of measles).

I asked ChatGPT to search the entire internet for a randomised controlled trial in which human-to-human transmission was shown to exist.

Sure, it’s just a bot, but it’s still fun using its own ‘intelligence’ against itself.

Adding to that, pharmaceuticals also cause sickness.

Here’s my conversation with Roman.

There is sufficient evidence in my mind to suggest that the risk of vaccines, in particular combinations of vaccines, may outweigh the benefits.
