Worried about measles? If you are vaccinated, you should be. If you are my age, and were lucky enough to get wild measles, you needn’t worry at all.
Measles has been quite stubborn to be wiped out. In China, in one province, 99% of children are vaccinated but measles runs strong.
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure that one out. Clearly measles vaccine doesn’t work as advertised. In fact, in our own country, outbreak after outbreak has occurred in what has been called a fully vaccinated population. (See: A measles outbreak at a college with a prematriculation immunization requirement. Am J Public Health. 1991 Mar ;81(3):360-4. PMID:1994745.)
I wrote long ago that we are setting up the younger generation for a potential calamity. See, vaccines give you plastic immunity. They build up only one line of your immune system, the antibody system, and put the main immune system (cellular immunity) to sleep. You need both for fully developed immunity.
Vaccine immunity has been shown to wane with time. And sadly, current measles outbreaks are being blamed on parents who refuse to give immune damaging vaccines to their children, when Chinese and American data shows otherwise.
You won’t hear the latter in the news though, but I will tell you! If I had a school age child now, I’d rush him over to the house with measles (or chicken pox, etc.) to play games there. When my child would get measles, I’d give plenty of vitamin A and also ozone therapy. I’d run the virus out in about half the time or less (by experience with other viruses).
Measles should be feared to some extent. It is REAL hard if an original infection in adults. And, even children will rarely have a bad complication. The death rate is 1-2 in 100,000 cases. But I’d bet I could cut that by 95% with oxidation and vitamin A (in an African outbreak, where up to 80% of complications were reduced with A: Am J Clin Nutr. 1991 Nov;54(5):890-5.). Now I agree that I would not want to be in the 1 in 100,000 group that could have a lethal complication. But is the vaccination worth it with that small risk?
