I certainly don't fear measles.
The risk of death is due to a complication secondary to measles, usually in children under age 15 months. Children are not given an initial MMR until age 12-15 months anyway. It doesn't work earlier, incompletely immunizes, therefore multiple doses given.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, "Death, predominantly resulting from respiratory and neurologic complications, occurs in 1 to 3 of every 1000 cases reported in the United States."
According to the CDC, "during 2001--2008, a median of 56 (range: 37--140) measles cases were reported to CDC annually."
With fewer than 100 cases in the US population, most over the age of 15 months, the risk of death is infinitesimal.
The possibility that anyone in the US could even acquire measles is basically, 1 CASE per 3 million people!
In the US, there are approximately 5 million children, age 15 months and younger. The risk for a child under age 15 months to acquire measles is 1.5 CASES in 5 million children.
Of those 1.5 CASES in children under age 15 months, 0.1% would die each year (1 to 3 of every 1000 cases).
(to check the numbers: there are approximately 300,000,000 people in the US, 1.66% of them are under age 15 months.)
Back when we were evaluating vaccination, we did these calculations for each disease and vaccination.
You can check the CDC site. But, here are the hard numbers for 2006. This is for the last week of the year..... this is the total number of cases reported to the CDC for 2006.....(copied from another source)
Total reported cases to the CDC:
Disease Cases:
Diptheria 0
Measles 51
Mumps 6,439
Rubella 8
Congenital rubella 1
Tetanus 32
Hib (under 5)
Sero b-9
Non sero b-94
Unknown b-230
Out of a population of 295 million people in the United States!!
Check how likely it is that you'll ever get any of these diseases, for any year you prefer to examine.
Educate before you vaccinate.
Trust your body.
There is an increased risk of complications for most childhood disease if susceptible as an adult.
However, with measles it is very clear that supplementation with Vit A will help your body deal with a measles infection. If there is measles near me - I'd get a bottle of Cod liver Oil, preferably without synthetic vit A (palmitate), and start taking a dose each day - and definitely continue if I did happen to catch measles.
Here is US National Library of Medicine research showing Vit A as beneficial to avoid complications of measles.
Here are a few links about the potential complications of measles and the likelihood of each:
(BUT, you have to actually ACQUIRE measles to have risks of
complications. ) Basically, much less likely than getting hit by
lightening, I'd extrapolate.
Additionally, there are many holistic alternatives to address measles.
And Vit A, as a alternative, is easily available to many more people. It
Measles has historically been an ubiquitous childhood disease. The huge MAJORITY had no problems with measles, even years ago, when health care interventions were more primitive, less available.
Not to mention the vaccine is a LIVE virus.
"FIVE vaccines (measles, mumps, rubella, polio, and varicella) are LIVE virus vaccines. Live virus vaccines can sometimes infect the recipient and can even sometimes infect those in close contact with the recipient.
These vaccines are given to young children, and vaccine immunity
sometimes wears off for adults. This can put a pregnant mother or
immunocompromised adult at risk by being around a recently vaccinated child with live virus vaccines."
Again, I encourage everyone to USE THE CDC'S WEBSITE AND STATISTICS.
Educate before you vaccinate.
Question everything. Make an informed choice. I was shocked too!

Vitamin A - There are two basic forms of vitamin A (retinoids and carotenoids) and both forms provide unique health benefits. Retinoids forms of vitamin A are provided by animal foods, including: goat's milk, cow's milk, shrimp, eggs, salmon, halibut, cheese, yogurt, scallops, sardines, tuna, cod, and chicken.

Carotenoid forms of vitamin A are provided by most fruits and vegetables. Many people, especially those with thyroid issues, are not able to effectively convert carotenoids into retinoids.

processed and whole foods vitamin A content: http://nutritiondata.self.com/foods-000098000000000000000...

BUT, it is important to consume fat soluble vitamins IN BALANCE with other fat soluble vitamins and minerals to avoid toxicity.
Whole foods with natural co-nutrients are safer (and more effective) than supplementing isolated commercial "nutrients".
