He had asthma, he was vaccinated for measles--but when? Did he recently receive an MMR? Or another vaccine that might have made his immune system malfunction? Was he on drugs?
There are so many holes here, it's ridiculous.
he had issues - He had underlying health problems but his mother, Angela Colfer, is angry that he was not diagnosed with measles until after his death despite him being seen by doctors hours before he died.
according to - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-22274206
and now they are giving some single shots too
interesting - (I was told by an "older" Dr. this was due to lack of training/exposure in younger Dr.s/MD, etc)
It added that it can be difficult to diagnose measles because many of the symptoms are similar to other viral illnesses particularly in the early stages.
The other issue is measles tends to be way over diagnosed.
Measles Over Diagnosed – Up to 7400%
A. Laboratory confirmed cases of measles, mumps, and rubella, England and Wales: October to December 2004
Notified: 474, Tested: 589†, Confirmed cases: 8
RATE OF OVERDIAGNOSIS:- 589/8 = proportionately 7400% or 74 times overdiagnosed
SOURCE: CDR Weekly, Volume 15 Number 12 Published: 24 March 2005
[Note from Source: "†Some oral fluid specimens were submitted early from suspected cases and may not have been subsequently notified, thus the proportion tested is artificially high for this quarter."]
B. Total confirmed cases of measles and oral fluid IgM antibody tests in cases notified to ONS*: weeks 40-52/2005
Notified: 408, Tested: 343, Confirmed cases: 22
RATE OF OVERDIAGNOSIS:- 343/22 = proportionately 1560 % or 15.6 times overdiagnosed

Tylenol depletes glutathione. I assume it was given to this man because he had a fever, although that wasn't mentioned. Why else would it be given? It's really common knowledge that treating a fever, especially one that is due to an infectious disease, can cause more harm than good and can be quite dangerous.
I'm well aware of what Tylenol is - isn't everybody? I assume the Tylenol was given for fever as fever and measles usually go hand in hand, although I"m sure this isn't always the case. I'm also making an assumption because it's fairly commonplace for medical people to throw Tylenol at people - even when there is no good reason to do it. (ie feeling generally unwell)
I'm also well aware of it's dangers - just because something is in common use, doesn't make it without its problems/risks/dangers. I will never use Tylenol either for myself or my children - not with effective and much safer alternatives available.
