DID YOU KNOW SCIENCE SHOWS MEASLES IS ACTUALLY GOOD FOR YOU?
Did you know contracting measles naturally REDUCES your risk of cancer, Parkinson’s disease, heart disease and more, according to the latest science?
Pharmaceutical companies and the medical system love to vilify measles because they have a vaccine to sell. But is it really as bad as they play it out to be?
Not according to science. Researchers are discovering there are many benefits to contracting the measles virus naturally (not through the vaccine), including lower cancer and heart disease risk later in life.
Humans have lived symbiotically with viruses and infections for thousands of years and the typical childhood infections, like measles and chickenpox, are generational as parents who contract the infection then pass immunity on to their children. Then a new childhood infection becomes the norm for children. In the 1960s and 1970s, measles was one of the most common childhood illnesses. Then in the 1980s and 1990s, chicken pox was the popular childhood illness. Nowadays, most children will get Hand, Foot, Mouth infections as well as RSV.
Science is now figuring out that there’s a reason for contracting these infections during childhood — it primes your immune system to better handle bigger health issues later in life, like cancers, heart disease and Parkinson’s.
Yes, you read that right: measles can PROTECT you from disease later in life. But again, this has only been proven when you contract natural measles, not when you receive the vaccine.
Check out the studies below.
Still scared of the measles? That’s probably because of the media propaganda lately. But don’t fall for it!

THE BENEFITS OF MEASLES:
These studies indicate that catching measles can benefit your health later in life…
Febrile infectious childhood diseases in the history of cancer patients and matched controls. Medical Hypotheses, 1998
Albonico found that adults are significantly protected against non-breast cancers — genital, prostate, gastrointestinal, skin, lung, ear-nose-throat, and others — if they contracted measles (odds ratio, OR = 0.45), rubella (OR = 0.38) or chickenpox (OR = 0.62) earlier in life. [Med Hypotheses 1998; 51(4): 315-20].

Transient remission of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis after measles. Acta Paediatrica Scandindanavica, 1981
A 4-year-old Japanese girl with systemic juvenile rheumatoid arthritis had an attack of measles. On the day following the first signs of measles, she became afebrile and free of joint pain even though aspirin therapy was discontinued. The remission lasted for 10 days. It appears that the measles virus infection may have been responsible for the brief remission in this patient.

Significantly lower parasitic prevalences and mean densities of malaria parasites were found in children up to nine years of age who had measles or influenza than in asymptomatic control children.
