I’m sorry, I do think you are crazy – dangerously so. And as the old saying goes, I cannot reason you out of a position you did not reason yourself into. But I will try. To answer your question of how many people died in the US from measles last year, the answer is none. HOWEVER, almost 1300 were sickened by this disease, with 128 requiring hospitalization – 61 reporting complications (link below). The point you are missing is that ALL of those illnesses were preventable. And to paraphrase you, “if one person does research and saves their kid from a preventable illness, posting on here will have been worth it.” As for research, you keep referencing it, but you have yet to produce any. Once again, I’m talking true peer-reviewed research, not conspiracy theory pseudo-science. Lastly, it should be noted that before widespread use of the measles vaccine, an estimated 3 to 4 million people got measles each year in the US, along with an estimated 400 to 500 deaths and 48,000 hospitalizations. https://www.cdc.gov/measles/cases-outbreaks.html
PS – your dismissal of the subject matter expertise of the CDC is also frightening. Do they hold patents and intellectual property? Yes. The CDC does a boatload of research on infectious disease. Eventually, they invent something, maybe finding the exact antigen on a virus that induces an immune response, and patent attorneys at the CDC file a patent on that “invention.” It protects the CDC from corporations or individuals who would rely upon CDC inventions, then patent it for themselves to profit on the CDC research. So, the CDC (or any federal science agency, like the NIH, and US Geological Survey, etc), has a portfolio of patents it can license. Is the US Geological Survey also part of this big pharma cabal?
PLEASE vaccinate your kids. Wash your hands. Don’t pick you nose.
