The total number of cases in the European Region for the first 6 months of 2018 far exceeds the 12-month totals reported for every year this decade.

There is NO current multi-state outbreak in US. Some recent media reports misinterpreted CDC data. Number of US-reported cases in 2018 is similar to recent years & in expected range. Measles is still common in many parts of the world. Protect your family w/ vaccine.

CDC monitoring in 21 states. A mentor & brilliant scientist, Bill Bellini , told me that is so infectious that it will find an unvaccinated person across the globe. He was right. Get your kids before somebody dies.

Really disturbed to read that the is a particular problem this year. I was very young when I had it but can still remember how ill I felt. The doctor told my mum I was lucky to get away without lasting damage. Really sorry for anyone not so lucky.

Oh man we need some kind of easy to administer cure for , perhaps one we can give to small children and build herd immunity with. Shame those vaccines are all satanic lies, according to people with no medical knowledge

is one of the most infectious diseases of man. It is the first disease to appear when community immunity falls; typically due to break downs in public health systems. US outbreaks are the outcome of a lack of trust between the public, doctors, and health officials.

is one of the most contagious diseases ever known. When people do not get 2 doses of the vaccine against measles, the disease spreads quickly. When enough people get immunized, everyone in the community is protected. Yes, !

80% of young people who contracted last year were unvaccinated. College or uni is a great place to catch measles, if you missed your as a child before starting college or uni in the next few weeks

Watch how the pharma mafia will try to plug its dangerous vaccines that supposedly prevent but in reality undermine the immune system and lead to more complicated cases of the disease at a later age. These killers posing as medicine men will fry in hell.
