WHO (World Health Org.) says measles making 'rapid comeback'

I just read this on
"The disease's resurgence follows a sharp drop in immunization rates in the late 1990s sparked by the publication of a flawed paper linking autism to the combined measles, mumps and rubella vaccine.
It is feared a "return to over 500,000 measles deaths a year by 2012, wiping out gains made over the past 18 years."

So It is time to re-think your Anti-Vaccine approach if you have one. Time may be running out. Be very careful.

  • We had a scare here locally. A Woman took her baby on vacation to Israel. He had not been vaccinated. He contracted Measels there. She returned home and he was diagnosed and the news gave a list of places that she had brought him to upon returning from her trip to alert the public. Daycare, The mall, Hair Salon, Grocery Stores. Thank God we are vaccinated but I worried about all the children whose Moms have not.

  • I think every parent should vaccinate their children. I did all seven & never regretted it. I don't believe Autism is related to vaccines!

  • First off, never trust WHO, their first point is to make money.
    Second off, I don't vaccinate, and I have absolutely no fear about my children getting measles, I would much rather they do and are treated, than they were injected by useless and potentially deadly or severely harmful chemicals and bio-materials...

    EVERY illness which we vaccinate against, is 100% treatable and curable. And it is ALWAYS healthier for the immune system to get sick and be treated than it is to be vaccinated against it. Vaccines stunt the immune system from natural growth and maturation, which not only causes future health concerns but creates a weakness against every day illnesses, allergies and other things...

    And as a side note - zoolady - no one I know in the Anti-vaccine world, thinks Autism is the major risk of Vaccines. Although there is more than enough scientific and medical proof that there is a link between chemicals & Autism...
