Measles cases are skyrocketing in Europe and storming back in the US — Quartz

MEASLES-1

It is impossible for one person to keep up on the sheer amount of Measles cases occurring around the world! A person could spend all of their time just talking about measles and nothing else.

Yes, in many cases, measles is just something you get over, but there are people dying, permanently injured or suffering from birth defects because of measles.

While it may be just my opinion, I think that the Anti-Vaccine people are going to suffer this year and, unfortunately, a lot of others will suffer because of their unscientific, irrational belief system – fueled in part by their unscrupulous passing on of pseudoscience and outright greed.

Below are links to articles about measle that have occurred just over the past several days.
