(NaturalNews) You may have been in this type of situation before. Someone objects to your opposition against vaccines by claiming that, if they were never invented, people would still be suffering from polio, smallpox and other mostly eradicated infectious diseases. Or that the average lifespan would be significantly lower if it were not for the advent of pharmaceutical drugs. But do such claims have scientific and historical merit?

In her new book, Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History, Dr. Suzanne Humphries, M.D., tackles these and other popular myths about modern medicine and its alleged role in improving human health. The fruit of a thorough investigation that included poring through old medical journals, newspapers, books and other materials, Dr. Humphries' book tells a story that few have heard, but that many need to know took place.

"Dissolving Illusions paints a historic portrait ... to reveal a startling history that has been disregarded," explains a description about the book. "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."

Much of Dr. Humphries' account focuses on the darker days in Western civilization's history when infectious disease was rampant, and famine, poverty and filth ruled the day. This is the scenario most often alluded to when people talk about how vaccines and drugs allegedly swooped in to save the day and rescue humanity from disease and death. But the simultaneous decline in the cohort of factors that largely contributed to the conditions in which people were much more prone to illness, and lifespans severely constricted, is often ignored.

Improved living conditions, quality of life primarily responsible for infectious disease decline

As it turns out, improvements in sanitation and living conditions, as well as an improved understanding of how to safely handle and transport things like food and water, were much more influential in eradicating infectious disease than vaccines ever were. The historical record shows that infectious disease was already disappearing long before vaccines ever even hit the medicine scene.

"Today, we are told that medical interventions increased our lifespan and single-handedly prevented masses of deaths," adds the book's description. "[But] 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."

A formidable challenge to what so many people blindly accept without question, Dissolving Illusions is a book that needs to be read by medical professionals and laymen alike. It presses its readers to rethink what they know about medicine and lays out more than enough evidence to show that much of what we have been told about vaccines and pharmaceutical drugs is nothing more than an elaborate illusion.

"It is the hygienic advances of the last 200 years and better nutrition and food distribution that have helped us to be healthier, not the doctors' visits," writes one reviewer of the book. "Read the book and decide for yourself if vaccines are really the savior of our health or if they are the cause of many chronically ill children."
