Do any of you know the author Roald Dahl? He wrote James and the Giant Peach and the BFG. Here is an article where he talks about how his daughter died in a matter of hours from measles. It is very sad. He is begging parents to get vaccinations.

I will pass it onto you. The rise in the numbers are directly related to the dropped numbers in vaccinations. The sanitation issues have been ongoing. But deny all you want that there is a valid reason as to the rise in measles related to vaccinations.

That is because we all got the measles when we were kids.


So you had the measles when you were a kid? I did not not and know hardly anyone growing up that had the measles. Makes you kind of wonder where this writer is getting his info. His info is totally inaccurate - measles is not almost nonexistant. As I posted it is rampid in other countries and the way to avoid that from happening here is to keep vaccinating. Like I said you keep living in a fantasy world that these diseases are not around but the info in other countries is telling us no. As they have decreased vaccines the numbers have DIRECTLY risen. Address that fact.

As the rates in those being vaccinated have dropped, the measles rate has increased there. Measeles is a viral disease so when you get it you cannot take an antibiotic which most of you would not take anyways because you probably don't believe in poisoning the body with that stuff either. You can have complications like pneumonia, encephalitis and blindness in wose cases. It spreads rapidly because it is airborn.

That measles is non existant. Look at the measles rates in other countries. In NIgeria, 1 in five children die from it and it is not the living conditions. they have problems with it in switzerland and the living conditions are fine there. It all goes back to the vaccine whether you want to believe it or not. What is the deal that you cannot admit that some of what you are posting is inaccurate. DO some research and then come back and say that I am liable.
