|99% of these cases came from 3 outbreaks which can all be traced to unvaccinated status.
Have you ever seen the movie And The Band Played On? At the time, it was alleged to be based on fact. They found "patient zero" who supposedly got the AIDS ball rolling in the U.S. His name was Gaetan Dugas. The CDC tracked it all back to him, and they had some great flow charts in the movie showing how Dugas spread it. It was all very believable. Unfortunately, it has been completely discredited many years after the fact.
The question to ask is, "Does the CDC have any motive at all to track measles outbreaks back to unvaccinated children?" And then do they have any motive to spread that news via their media channels and doctors?
I think there is certainly a possibility that an unvaxed child spread the measles to other children because that it normal and the measles and chicken pox and mumps and rubella are all normal. I know this may sound twisted to some, but those keeping the measles around are in a sense saving the remnant. Those who are genetically modifying our world without any understanding at all of what the consequences might be are the ones to fear. The genetic code is full of unknowns.
My point is, people can say or write whatever they want. Give that person a title and all of a sudden they have instant credibility as an authority. In my experience, very few people actually have any idea at all what they are talking about, especially medical authorities. Numbers are the easiest thing in the world to manipulate.
The CDC also plays all kinds of tricks when it comes to determining vax status. They would much rather prefer to mark "unknown" status then vaxed when following an "outbreak" of measles. They don't want people to lose faith in their products. Even if a lot of this occurs on mass unconscious level within the agency.
Measles is almost completely harmless and arguably an important developmental stage. When I studied under an herbalist and learned aspects of the Eastern health model, I was told by many sources that measles is not something to fear but rather embrace because of the emotional and physical maturation that occurs as a result of the condition.
