Measles has been in the news a great deal over the past few days. One of the big debates is whether vaccines for the measles should be mandated by the government. In this episode, you'll learn:
--The number of cases in 1960 compared to the number of cases last year. And how most of our measles cases are coming from overseas.
--The time between exposure to the measles--when you become contagious without being aware--and the onset of symptoms.
--How to become immune to the measles, and why the vaccine does NOT make you immune for life.
--Why breastfeeding helped transfer the immune system needed to fight off the measles.
--The blood test that can determine if you are immune to the measles. And how you can still get the measles even if you've had the vaccine.
--How the Autism rate went from 1-in-10,000 in 1980 to 1-in-50 today. And the connection between vaccines and childhood asthma, which causes 5,000 deaths per year.
--Why Dr. Prather recommends the Vitamin A in Cod Liver Oil when children get sick, including the measles. And how Homeopathics can stimulate the immune system.
--Why Dr. Prather says the debate is not really about the measles, but really about whether people should be allowed to opt out of vaccinations.
--Those who should definitely NOT receive the Measles Vaccination due to potential complications, such as pregnant women, those with compromised immune systems, and those with egg allergies.
--The protocol Dr. Prather recommends to minimize reactions for those who do choose to vaccinate.
