Don't t bite my head off. lol I think it's hard to gather any info, correct or incorrect when the resources are so dang limited. And a misdiagnosis in Africa isn't the same as one in the US. Not to sound like a meanie or anything, but i am trying to make a decision in my part of the world, with the resources here.
As for diagnosis in the US, I don't know how often they do bloodwork but I would be surprised if the insurance companies pay for regular blood work after a measles diagnosis in cases without complications. Does anyone know?
One reason I think this is important, is that I think the efficacy of the measles vaccine may be overstated. We tend to take for granted that, whatever the downsides, this vaccine is very effective. However, it isn't clear exactly how any of the vaccines that appear to work really "work," aside from generating positive titres, which we know isn't the whole game.
So, I really think that we need to seriously tender the possibility that a lot of kids do get some kind of exposure, which they successfully defend against. Granted, nutrition is not what it could be, even in the developed world, but a lot of folks clearly still happen upon a sufficient minimum of nutrients, because we don't see rafts of serious disease and illness from common diseases among "healthy" folks. Some people do get really sick, and I think that is usually a pretty good litmus test of where their deficiencies may lie, but you already know what you need to keep up with for better health.
Whenever allopaths claim to have developed an effective surgical strike, I always think Andromeda Strain...
