There is a measles epidemic moving from the west coast to the east. Have you and your loved ones been vaccinated? When I was young, before the measles vaccine and in the early days of antibiotic development, measles were very common. I had measles and almost died from double pneumonia, sometimes a complication of measles. The vaccine stopped measles. Then someone came up with the idea that vaccines were causing all kinds of problems. Young mothers jumped on the band wagon of not having their children vaccinated. Let me tell you from experience measles is way more dangerous than the vaccination. Polio was also epidemic when I was in school. A vaccine got rid of polio as well. Polio crippled many children. When the number of children not vaccinated grows large enough, epidemics get started as the measles outbreak occurring now.
