Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and The Forgotten History 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.
Adverse Effects of Pertussis and Rubella Vaccines: A report published by the Institute of Medicine (1991) for the U.S. Congress under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. A review of the medical literature that documents evidence for and against a causal relationship between pertussis and rubella vaccines and brain and immune system dysfunction.
Adverse Events Associated with Childhood Vaccines: Evidence Bearing on Causality published by the Institute of Medicine (1994) for the U.S. Congress under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. A review of the medical literature that documents evidence for and against a causal relationship between tetanus, diphtheria, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, HIB and hepatitis B vaccines and brain and immune system dysfunction.
Multiple Immunizations and Immune Dysfunction published by the Institute of Medicine (2002). A review of the medical literature that discusses the potential biological mechanisms and evidence for and against a causal relationship between multiple vaccinations and immune and brain dysfunction.
The River: A Journey to the Source of HIV and AIDS by Edward Hooper. A compelling and sometimes shocking analysis of the evidence that HIV was created in man when experimental vaccines made from monkey tissues contaminated with monkey viruses such as SIV (simian immunodeficiency virus) were used in African countries. If you can't afford it, try to find it in your local library.
The Vaccine Book: Making the Right Decision for Your Child by Robert Sears, M.D. This book offers tips for parents who want to vaccinate their child with all government recommended vaccines but prefer to use an alternative schedule for vaccination. Includes suggested schedules for spacing recommended vaccines out and giving fewer vaccines on one day.
Unlocking Jake: The Story of a Rabies Vaccine, Autism & Recovery is about a little boy who regressed into autism following a series of rabies vaccines when he was three and a half. Over a period of several weeks, he stopped speaking, feeding himself, and pottying. He stared, played with the same toys for hours, and had meltdowns. He flapped his hands, walked on his toes, and was terrified of thunderstorms and train whistles. Unlocking Jake is an inspiration and a source of hope and strength for families living with autism. Perhaps more important, it shows indisputably what a vaccine did to a child and begs the question, "Are today's childhood vaccines safe?"
Vaccine A: The Covert Government Experiment That's Killing Our Soldiers--And Why GI's Are Only The First Victims by Gary Matsumoto. This book maintains that when U.S. soldiers went to fight the Gulf War in the 1990's and the Iraq War in 2003, an unknown number were secretly injected with an experimental anthrax vaccine using an unapproved oil-based adjuvant (squalene) without their informed consent. The author presents evidence that the experimental squalene adjuvant, which was supposed to stimulate the immune system and increase the anthrax vaccine's potency, left many unsuspecting soldiers with crippling autoimmune disease such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis.
