95% of deaths and cases occur in 3rd world countries, where children are so malnourished they die from complications from the measles such as dehydration (from the fever or diarrhea). In a healthy child with access to clean water and food, its next to impossible to die from any complications since our bodies were designed to fight diseases like this, and in return create anti-bodies for our future children transmitted through the placenta and breastmilk. The 5% of deaths that occur in developed countries are usually in the elderly with weak immune systems (who werent already exposed as children), ADULTS (which actually have the highest complication rate since this disease was meant to be caught in childhood to strengthen our immune systems as adults), and in rare cases, children with comprised immune systems such as those with HIV or AIDS.
the 200,000 figure is a scare tactic commonly used by the CDC, big pharma and pediatricians. While yes its true, like i mentioned above, 95% of that 200,000 is happening in impovershed countries were children are dying of the common cold, and very simple things that we dont even bat an eye at here in the US and other developed countries (like dehydration, starvation, etc).
I also find it funny that every one is running around like chickens without their heads over these outbreaks, but yet, when you do ever hear of a measles death? They are so quick to say how dangerous and deadly this disease is, but seriously, when do you ever hear about a death in these cases in the US? I also find it funny how these cases pop up out of nowhere and they are so quick to blame unvaccinated children and children from other countries, did they ever stop to think that maybe it was one of their own vaccinated children spreading it? afterall, it is a LIVE virus in the vaccine which we all know can be contagious. The CDC admits children vaccinated against pertussis are suseptical of spreading the disease around, so why is this any different?
p.s. i would love to get my children exposed but we live nowhere near those states unfortunatly. People assume i dont vax because i dont think my kids will ever come in contact with the virus when the opposite is true. I WANT my kids exposed, to strengthen their immune systems, create natural lifelong immunity, and to create protection for my daughters future unborn babies. If only....
