Sunday House Call, #683, February 10, 2019: The can of worms that is measles should never have been reopened.
Topics today include:
Measles cases have tripled in Europe with 82,000 cases in 2018. BC and Washington State and Oregon now have it. Madagascar has had 50,000 new cases of measles with 300 mostly children dying because the vaccine is unavailable throughout the island.
The irony is that we have universal availability in Western countries yet enough choose not to vaccinate resulting in harm to our children and those parents in Madagascar would do anything to get their hands on it to save their children.
- Your calls about:
- Chicken Pox and Shingles
- Booster shots for Measles
- Urinary bladder prolapse therapies
- Urinary retention from an enlarged prostate
- A man rec ounts his families experiences with childhood infectious disease before vaccines were available.
