Part III: More Measles
Its July 18th. A little over half-way into 2011. And in Ethiopia, about 18,000 people have gotten measles, with a touch over 100 dead.
There has also been an outbreak in Somali refugee camps in Kenya, with almost 500 sick and 11 dead.
Meanwhile, here in the US, we have antivaxers throwing money away on snake-oil to cure their children of autism (and the collection of non-medically recognized that seem to go along with seeing woo-treatment from autism
experts charlatans, like OCD-like dietary rituals and paranoia about ‘multiple chemical sensitivity’), fantasizing about ‘revenge’ on those evil scientists who invented/produce/test vaccines.
Think about that kind of luxury– A group of individuals fantasizing about torture and death, while another group of individuals just has to open their eyes see torture and death all around them. Parents *angry* with the government for making sure kids are vaccinated, while another group of parents can do nothing to to get their kids vaccines that will keep their children healthy and *alive*.
We have it good.
Better than some people deserve.
