Read it as if your child has the Measles and you didn’t find out in time what it was, because doctors of our time don’t know the symptoms to look for in real life since the great majority don’t know what they’d actually be looking at. They would be thinking it’s just a spotty rash, maybe sun spots from overheating. Your child would be at risk for blindness and other serious complications.
Yes, Measles is serious. It’s not a “mild childhood disease.” This is a misguided belief, and needs to be reconsidered. Measles isn’t mild. Measles is more than just uncomfortable. Measles kills children. It causes severe complications in pregnancies that can cause serious lasting problems for the babies.
/But I can show you what I’m talking about.What I wonder is that in spite of knowing the very real dangers of the disease, which are far, far greater than the false belief that it causes or contributes to Autism Spectrum Disorder, is why people still insist that it’s “mild” in its symptoms. People who let their children go to “measles parties” (and for that matter chicken pox parties) have children that didn’t and don’t appreciate contracting the disease their parent forced upon them. Before the chicken pox vaccine, for instance, I have a relative who contracted it (naturally) and ended up with a pock on her eye. She has a small hole in her eye because of it. As I recall when she had the chicken pox, it was beyond terrible. I remember having the chicken pox. I felt like I was dying. I had pocks in my throat, and I have scarring all over me including my face.
I’ve spoken with people who had the measles. It was more than uncomfortable, and it wasn’t “mild” but nearly every instance had each of their parents making urgent calls to the pediatricians and trips to the ER. Anecdotal evidence, I know, meaning nothing to those who wish to make a point that they “must” be an exception, but research backs it up. Science, even. Right now I’m talking children. It’s no picnic for adults either.
But I can show you what I’m talking about.
From the World Health Organization:
Who is at risk?
People die of complications from Measles. Those most susceptible aren’t just children 5 and under, but people OVER 20 years old. Yes, healthy adults die from the Measles and complications from the Measles. Many of the complications themselves don’t have treatments. And what people don’t realize is that Measles can lead to babies and young children and elders having to suffer with multiple diseases in addition to the Measles, at the same time as the Measles, with long lasting consequences due to negligence. Complications include:
- Acute Encephalitis
- Subacute Sclerosing Pan Encephalitis (SSPE)
- Viral Pneumonia (Hecht’s GC) or Bronchial Pneumonia
- Severe Diarrhea
- Premature birth
- Severe Conjunctivitis/Eye Infection that can result in Blindness – indicated by pus draining from the eyes
- Mouth ulcers
- High Fever
- Scarring rashes
- Severe Ear Infections that can result in Deafness
- Croup aka Pertussis aka Whooping Cough which is a full on killer… and should have its own vaccine: this can cause its own complications, such as lifelong asthma and other lung problems; vomiting, choking, breathing problems, damage to vocal cords would be immediate complications that could have lasting effects

From the World Health Organization:
Measles is one of the leading causes of death among young children even though a safe and cost-effective vaccine is available.
In 2012, there were 122,000 measles deaths globally – about 330 deaths every day or 14 deaths every hour.
Measles vaccination resulted in a 78% drop in measles deaths between 2000 and 2012 worldwide.
In 2012, about 84% of the world’s children received one dose of measles vaccine by their first birthday through routine health services – up from 72% in 2000.
Since 2000, more than 1 billion children in high risk countries were vaccinated against the disease through mass vaccination campaigns ― about 145 million of them in 2012.
Here’s the kicker. There is no specific treatment that exists for the measles virus. Antibiotics do nothing. Antivirals do nothing. That means you can’t just go to your doctor to get an antiviral or antibiotic for it once you contract it, period full stop. Once your child gets it, they have it and have to suffer through it and you have to be responsible for the fact that you didn’t get your previously healthy child the vaccine that could have helped prevent it or at least reduced the severity of it. And you’ve risked other children and people who are immune-compromised that are unable to get vaccinated for legitimate medical reasons, or because they’re too young to get it. Please remember I’m not talking about babies, children, and adult that are not medically able to be vaccinated because they’re too young or they have an allergy to the ingredients (like egg whites) or some other medical reason. I’m talking about people that are able to get the vaccine and choose not to because of paranoia and the lingering thought of “What if Wakefield was right? That poor man, people thinking he hoaxed the world, he was on to something!” No, no he wasn’t. He was scum. I’ve written about him too.
The best thing you can do for the most communicable diseases that can actually kill your children at worst and cause severe complications like blindness and preventable disabilities, such as Measles, Chicken Pox, Mumps, Rubella, Polio, at best is prevention. Vaccination.
You can not prevent measles or other communicable diseases with diet, products from self-proclaimed health product companies, vitamin supplements, exercise, prayer, or wishful thinking.
The “poisons” you think that make up vaccines? Trace amounts. Look it up. I’ve even explained what it means before. Do you know what trace amount means? It means so minute, so minuscule, such tiny, tiny, tiny amounts that it can’t even be measured and that even if you took that trace amount and multiplied it by a million you still couldn’t measure it and it wouldn’t be toxic.
Here’s a thought.
We avoid arsenic because it’s a poison, right? Remember the arsenic-in-apple-juice scare a couple of years back that’s coming around again? Well… arsenic is present in the apple itself. That’s just nature. You could eat a hundred apples in a week (I wouldn’t recommend it for your intestines sake) and it wouldn’t give you enough arsenic to kill you because it’s trace amounts.
Potatoes. We all love potatoes, tomatoes, hot peppers, eggplants, paprika, and cayenne peppers. We put those in many, many recipes around the globe, don’t we. But we wouldn’t dream of eating Belladonna, or Nightshade. Belladonna is a deadly poison. And yet potatoes, tomatoes, hot peppers, eggplants, paprika, and cayenne peppers all have alkaloids in them, the same substance that affects nerve and joint function. They don’t affect us because they don’t have nearly the amount of the toxin in them as Belladonna does, and we would have to eat large amounts at one time in order to have an adverse reaction unless we have a sensitivity or allergy in particular to the fruit or vegetable or to nightshades in general.
I’d like to introduce you to Dihydrogen Monoxide:
- is also known as hydroxyl acid, and is the major component of acid rain.
- contributes to the “greenhouse effect“.
- may cause severe burns.
- contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape.
- accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals.
- may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
- has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.
Despite the danger, dihydrogen monoxide is often used:
*as an industrial solvent and coolant.
*in nuclear power plants.
*in the production of Styrofoam.
*as a fire retardant.
*in many forms of cruel animal research.
*in the distribution of pesticides. Even after washing, produce remains contaminated by this chemical.
*as an additive in certain “junk-foods” and other food products.
It’s water, people. Simple water.
Some chemicals are actually good for you. Aloe from aloe plants. Lemon juice. Orange juice. We hear the word chemical and we panic. It must mean that scientists mixed some naturally derived ingredients and made a chemical or that scientists figured out how to synthesize ingredients to create a medicine… a chemical. And we all know that scientists and BIG PHARMA have it out for us. They’re just OUT FOR THE MONEY. They want to PUMP US FULL OF CHEMICALS FOR THE MONEY. They couldn’t possibly want to, you know, keep children from dying from terrible diseases or cure people from stuff.
We’ve been trained to think that chemicals are bad by what I like to call the Big “Natural” Movement. “Chemicals” must be evil. This is when I like to remind people that blood is a chemical. Beer. Wine. Marijuana grown in your backyard. Tears. Those are all chemicals. Bile is a poison. Poop is a poison. All natural, yet. Words are not always what they seem when there’s an agenda and talking points and rhetoric is involved. So the fear based thinking regarding vaccines because of the CHEMICALS is thanks to the “All Natural” and “Clean Living” movements. They’re manipulations in order to get you to buy what they want you to buy… but in order to do that they have to also demonize what they want you think of as the opposite of what they’re selling.
We’re told to get our vitamins, and certain compounds, to help make sure our health is at its peak. Certain vitamins and minerals are illness fighters, cancer busters, immunity boosters. The best way to get those healthful vitamins and minerals is through our natural diets in fruits, veggies, grains, and for those who eat meat, eggs, milk, for us to get out in the sunshine, etc. However, so-called health companies have their agenda. Money. “Let’s sell you products that our very own scientists have figured out have The Very Best Combination of The Very Best Nutrients Ever and if you buy these products regardless of their cost you might get sick less often so that your disorder or disease no longer even exists AND you won’t even have to take medication any more”.
Even though the claims can never be backed by the FDA because these products are not medicinal health products. They very well may help you, but they’re not health products. Not even vitamins can make claims other than what strict FDA regulations say they can. And what they never tell you is that they (vitamins AND self-proclaimed health food and health product companies) can still interact with necessary meds, the ones you don’t get to stop taking. They mislead people into thinking they don’t need something vital and can end up killing someone. It’s not because doctors aren’t involved… it’s because people are lazy and don’t open up communications. They would rather take something that can’t ever be proven with facts and statistics scientifically for certain from a company that calls itself a health company than trust their own doctors. People don’t even trust Registered Dietitians to help them because they’re part of the medical field. They’d rather trust nutritionists and people without certification or backgrounds in scientific training.
Jarred vitamins are great as supplements, but no matter what the label tells you it’s not “natural” if it’s in pill form. They’re a modern miracle, sure. Difficult to really absorb, as they’re not very soluble. Again though… people don’t think to tell their doctors what they’re taking or why they think they’re taking it. People think that they’re their own doctors, that they have to be, due to paranoia. And the Big Natural Movement is fostering that feeling, that belief, that fear of doctors, in order to cash in.
The only way real way to get the best nutrition you can is with a diet full of fresh foods that can spoil, not sitting on your shelf in a wrapper. Something wrapped or bottled and slapped with a label that says “diet” or “natural” or “all natural” is actually not health food. It’s not prevention or medicine to take supplements or have a great diet. Because again: You can not prevent measles or other communicable diseases with diet, products from self-proclaimed health product companies, vitamin supplements, exercise, prayer, or wishful thinking.
We survive longer and are healthier than a century ago, than 75 years ago, because we have medicines. Because we have vaccines. Babies, children, adults are living longer because of the vaccines. Booster shots are available for those who ask for them. There are ways to get them inexpensively.
We survive longer because we have vitamin supplements and better variety of fresh foods available for everyone. We survive longer because we have better knowledge of germs and cleanliness, sewer systems, food preparation safety. We have more doctors, who have better medical equipment and more knowledge at their disposal than ever before. We live longer because of all of these things put together. We have the power to eradicate terrible diseases like Measles, Chicken Pox (varicella), Polio, Rubella.
So that said. Let’s move on. I spent enough time on that thought.
People think that every ingredient that’s in vaccines is poison because it’s a “chemical” at this point, including the vaccine itself ie. the dead virus or germ that is being vaccinated against. People don’t understand how vaccines actually work, how the body works. How things weren’t perfect with our health 50 years ago, 75 years ago, 100+ years ago… thousands of years ago. People stopped eating bark off of trees for a reason.
People died from urinary tract infections, for crying out loud. People still die from pneumonia. And children ARE dying from Measles. And people afraid to get the vaccines but then are afraid to let even other family members who have been vaccinated around their children for fear of their child contracting these terrible diseases? That’s your better sense taking over. Listen to it.
This is on a good-to-know-basis for those still worried about that dangerous, dangerous Thimerosal that isn’t actually Mercury but people think is pure Mercury (I’ve blogged about this before too in more detail): Thimerosal is no longer used in childrens’ shots except in some types of flu shots. You can ask for a flu shot that doesn’t have thimerosal in it. Let the doctors know ahead of time so that they can order it for you.
If you care for my opinion on Autism outside of this particular post, just put Autism in my search bar or check recent posts.
I’ve exhausted myself with this post. I’m sure I’ve offended some people. It’s ok. Facts sometimes do that.
