Measles Outbreak Spreads To 15 States, Largest In 10 Years
At least 127 people in 15 states have come down with the measles, the biggest outbreak in the United States in more than 10 years, Reuters reported.
Cases started springing up in May, when more than 70 people in a dozen states became ill. According to federal health officials, most of the victims were not vaccinated against the highly contagious virus.
In a statement, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the outbreak has been traced to travelers who became sick overseas, returned to the United States and infected others.
The news comes on the heels of public health officials' stressing the importance of immunizing children.
"What concerns me is the trend of more and more people not vaccinating their children because of fears that vaccines cause autism — although no studies have proven this to be true," Dr. Joseph Rahimian, an infectious disease specialist at St. Vincent's Hospital in Manhattan, told FOXNews.com in May.
-- FOX News, covering the (totally unnecessary and totally expected) results of the latest NewAge and "alternative" medicine-lover's (totally wrong-headed) push against "Big Pharma" - measles are back - which, I'm sure, will have, absolutely, no effect on the outlook of cultish NewAge zombies anywhere. Not even the ones who are suffering with this. They'll blame anything but the belief system that keeps driving them, over and over, to produce the same disastrous results.
Ladies and Gentlemen, one more time:
NewAge belief is a cult - a cult that must be labeled a public menace.
