‘With all of the hysteria and fear-mongering about measles that’s sweeping mainstream media headlines these days, one might assume that children everywhere are dropping dead from this chickenpox-like infection. But according to official data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), not a single person has died while being infected with measles in more than 15 years.
On the other hand, it’s an undeniable fact that at least 100 people have died as a consequence of receiving the MMR vaccine for measles, mumps, and rubella, which we’ve all been told by government health authorities, is supposed to protect against measles.
As is now obvious to everyone who’s actually paying attention, the MMR vaccine is actually far more dangerous than measles itself, which back in the 1950s and 1960s was joked about in television shows like “The Brady Bunch” for being a harmless rite of passage from childhood into adulthood.
Back in 2014, CDC Director for the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases told the Associated Press that there hasn’t been a measles-associated death since 2003. This claim was more recently confirmed by the CDC’s Division of Viral Diseases, which again reiterated in an email that there have been no measles-associated deaths in the U.S. since 2003.
It’s important to also keep in mind that even those very few deaths reported in 2003 and prior may not have actually been caused by measles, as the CDC merely tracks deaths that coincide with measles infections – much like the CDC, as well as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), do with data targeting raw milk.’
