Air Travelers are also killing thousands of people per year (at least) by pollution.

Most citizens of the USA have had their measles shots. When we were kids, they didn't have the vaccination but I did get the measles and followed by the German measles. As long as your have been vaccinated or have had the disease, you will not be prone to getting it again.

I had to have a measles shot in the 80's because I probably didn't get one as a kid. Not good for grown up to get them because of major side affects. My two friends just got on a plane sick. I will not fly again. I see no reason to fly. Skype. Drive and see the USA. Pollution. Being locked in an airtight container with measles, flu, colds and who knows what else is creepy. Pollution is the creepiest. Stop Flying.

But no one should get vaccinated ever! The fake study said so. Unless or until people start understanding that that study was faked and vaccinating again, this is not only going to happen again but more and more children are going to get sick and as they grow older, teens and adults are going to get sicker, and sicker.

There hasn't been any mercury in vaccines for years. So that's a moot argument.

Mary M. Like you I had all those very un-fun diseases. It seems now that we both need booster shots. Immunity wears off.

The other problem with most people is really doing whatever it takes to not "spread" any communicable diseases while in public. I work for an airline and it's crazy to think that people will sneeze/cough in their hand, right in front of you, and then hand you their documents/boarding passes/tickets with the same hand.
There have been many times that I've gone to use the restroom and see guys that I just saw in there, that didn't wash their hands, hand me their documents.

To me this is VERy worrying! we have had a world that is so free of all the terrible diseases like measles, for so long, because of vaccinating children... I am afraid that all the media myths and fears put around about the vaccinations is SOOOO dangerous... we are going to soon have a world where the same killer diseases are going to be here again, if we have a world full of children who have not been vaccinated. .... of course, many of our Care 2 mums are too young to know what it is like to have an epidemic of those awful diseases. the So many little children die and end up with life-time disabities from those diseases... measles is absolutely HORRIBLE.. It is a killer and it can blind and brain damage children. Polio claimed I think it was 85.000 lives at the beginning of the century and even when I was a child, hunderds of children were dying and becoming paralyzed and were left with permanent paralyses... I thanked GOD that there were vaccines for MY children, so that I knew they were not going to be killed by these chldhood diseases. Whooping cough is claiming the lives of children again and God only knows WHAT will happend if smallpox comes back again!!!! T B is another.... The list is awful!! With world travel being so common place now, it is naive to think that we will not get these diseases back again They will strike in any area where children are not vaccinated. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY MEDIA MYTHS THAT ARE NOT FOUNDED ON TRUE SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE!! Your little ones life may depend on these vaccines!

If people don't start using vaccines again, this will get worse and many people will die....including unvaccinated children.
This fear of vaccines is sending us back in time. Autism is probably from chemical overload in the food and ALL products like baby blankets, clothing, furniture. It's ALL treated with chemicals, and even if you wash everything,..,.you're washing it with CHEMICALS!
Be afraid of the real menace....cut down on chemical exposure!

I've seen the kids who survived polio and wore leg braces...and I've seen people die of TB. It's so stupid to let that happen again!

It's only measles. Funny the way people overreact today.
