Publisher's Summary

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 information, 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.

mind blowing and life changing

I have never seen a more comprehensive and complete account of the history of vaccination. the gathered evidence and data contained in this book covers two centuries of manipulation and corruption from the medical industry. it is a lot to absorb and I will be reading it again, but it has absolutely opened my eyes to the hidden truth and the disastrous path we are currently on because of an unsupported and fabricated belief system parading as science.

A must read

I wish I had access to this information before I ever brought my two children to the pediatrician. Amazing how myths take hold despite lack of evidence. Time to embrace critical thinking!

(Should Be) Mandatory Reading for All Humans

Well researched and well and bravely written, with smooth and flawless narration despite a plethora of medical terms, this book is a must-listen. Though nearly a decade old, the story and supporting data are highly relevant for our time - for obvious reasons. We, the parents, we, the children, we, the people need to wake up.

Excellent Audiobook

I truly appreciate the authors for writing this excellent book! The evidence they present is well worth the time of anyone interested in the unattractive (and scarier) elements of vaccines; the history of which is quite disconcerting. Are vaccines today presented to us in a scary light? Of course the answer is no, but the authors of this book give us a clear view of what potentially lurks in the background.

Well researched

This was a very dense read, but made so because of the research given with citation to follow up on and the many layers, medical, immunological, social, socioeconomic, etc. that were presented in such a thought provoking way. I am compelled to read it again because of the nuanced information and implications that could/should be reviewed.

The Definitive Book on Vaccines!!

“Resolving Illusions” by Susan Humphries lives up to its title. Having a scientific background and many years of vaccine research, I found this book to be lonesome dove of vaccine truth. It should be required reading for anyone who seeks truth not only on vaccines but the Medical Field in general - well done Dr. Humphries .... May God Bless your Soul!

Everything you wish was not true about vaccines.

A fascinating history of vaccines. Medicine is looking as much a quasi-science as psychology, economics and climate studies.

If true- very disconcerting

Very eye opening, and also quite logical. The author seeks not to convince as much as to inform. And leaves the reader to make up their own mind.

A must read for anyone seeking the truth about the history of vaccines

As a mother to a young family my intuition was to investigate vaccines and vaccine safety to educate myself for true informed consent. With the truth so hard to find #googleiscensored I was thrilled to see audible had released an audio version of the book I had been wanting to read but simply didn’t have the time. I now plan to buy this book for family and friends. In the age of Covid we all need to understand this mistruths of vaccines historically so to prevent history repeating itself.

Wow what a thoroughly interesting book

loved thus book! Well researched and informative. Definitely a must listen for all parents who are thinking of vaccination by needle upon their children. Some of the information in this audible book, I found quite chilling, but that's because the truth can have that effect when we have been deceived by the medical industrial complex
