Measles outbreaks are the fault of anti-vaxxers, says World Health Organization

Number of people with measles tripled in Europe in 2018, WHO says

According to the Washington Department of Health, almost one in four Clark County kindergarten students during the 2017-18 school year did not get all their immunizations; at three different elementary schools, over 40% of kindergarteners did not get vaccinated before they started kindergarten.

But his mother, Jill Wheeler, described the move as insulting and a "slap in the face", according to Undark. She went on to comment, "It was like him spitting on me, saying, 'You don't know anything, I don't trust you with anything". You don't know what you're talking about.

"U.S. -based anti-vaccine energy has gained ground in the last decade, increasing vulnerability of more and more young people - especially in older children and adults who were not vaccinated as infants", Marrazzo says.

Washington state has been facing a measles outbreak with more than 50 cases.

Growing up, Ethan said his parents would tell him about the negative effects of getting vaccinated - including that they could cause brain damage and autism. And so through that, I got some good answers, ' Lindenberger said.

But it wasn't until speaking with friends that he realized he was the only one out of his peer group to not have had the life-saving vaccinations. On Friday, almost 700 people in Olympia protested a proposed bill that would make it more hard for parents to opt out of vaccinating their kids.

Mexican drug cartel leader El Chapo found guilty, faces life in prison
Federal court marshals whisked Guzman out of the courtroom immediately after the judge read the guilty verdict. In 2015, he pulled off another jail break, escaping a maximum-security prison through a 10-metre deep tunnel .


Mounting distrust has led some parents to not immunize their children, in turn leading to outbreaks of diseases not seen in years, such as measles, whooping cough and mumps. People who have never received a measles vaccine are susceptible to the disease, which can be deadly.

This elicited a flood of unvaccinated children and teens to take to the internet asking how they could circumnavigate their parents' wishes and have themselves vaccinated, for fear of their own health. When we don't see the devastation caused by vaccine-preventable diseases on a daily basis, some people discount the vital need to keep their families safe by vaccinating them'.

Almost everyone who has been diagnosed with measles so far has not received either shots.

Ethan Lindenberger, frustrated by years of arguments about his mother's anti-vaccination stance, staged a quiet defection via Reddit.

'I was just blown away that you know, the largest health organization in the entire world would be written off with a kind of conspiracy theory-like statement like that'.

Ethan Lindenberger from OH is used to having arguments with his mother, like all teenagers are.

Julian Edelman Speaks Out About PED Suspension
The show aired on Friday. "Getting the MVP is kind of a win for me and my other team, and that's my family. She of course brought up his beard and how long he planned to keep it.


Lindenberger suggested that to empower teenagers and get more people immunized, states should lower the age of consent required for vaccinations instead of pushing for stricter immunization laws and dropping exemptions.

"When I looked into the evidence I thought my mom made a poor decision in choosing not to vaccinate me or my siblings", said Lindenberger.

The post, My parents are kind of stupid and don't believe in vaccines.

Since Ethan is now legally an adult his parents can not stop him from getting vaccinations.

A way for vaccines to work effectively is "herd immunization" -- meaning if enough of a population is immune, those who aren't will be more protected.
