Roman Bystrianyk co-authored Dissolving Illusions with Suzanne Humphries.
It challenges the conventional narrative about the role of vaccines in public health, arguing that they have not been responsible for the decline in infectious diseases, and that they might actually have contributed to illness.
The book begins by examining the living conditions in the 19th century (mostly in the USA and the UK), which were often very poor. People lived in crowded, unsanitary conditions, and they often drank contaminated water. These factors were the primary cause of the high rates of sickness at the time.
It then goes on to discuss the history of vaccines, showing that vaccines were not widely used until the 20th century, and that they did not have an impact on the decline in infectious diseases.
In fact, the data shows that vaccines might have actually made everything worse.
For example, the Cutter Incident (1955) is a well known tragedy in which at least 200,000 children and adults were given a polio vaccine. The shots were given after they were officially approved and caused 40,000 cases of polio, killed 10 and paralysed over 200.
The Measles vaccine was introduced in the 1960s when Measles had mostly vanished, meaning that other factors, such as improved sanitation and nutrition, were more important in reducing the incidence of Measles.
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, and that the doctor-patient relationship is one of trust and authority.
Germ Theory, on which the current medical establishment is based, is not supported by the evidence.
In short, Germ Theory is the idea that many diseases are caused by germs such as bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms. Accordingly, germs invade our bodies and make us sick, spreading spread from person to person through coughing or sneezing or physical contact or by touching contaminated surfaces.
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.
