My daughter had her MMR vaccine, and never had measles. So why did she have chicken pox, chronic strep, norovirus, and FLU?
Because the vaccine was for MMR, not "chicken pox, chronic strep, norovirus, and FLU?".

This "research" and its attendant mainstream media hype is for scaring the younger parents who don't know any better because they didn't see what previous generations experienced.





Surely just a big coincidence! /s



My generation was relatively healthy back in the 70s. We were teenagers when the MMR formula was changed to the one made with aborted fetal cell line WI-38. I remember getting the occasional winter cold but summer colds were very rare. I didn't know anyone who had severe life-threatening allergies, eczema, asthma, severe autism, etc. Those were the days!
All of this is balderdash! Parents were concerned about measles and did take their kids to the doctor "back then". Mine did. 48,000 were hospitalized every years and at least 400-500 DIED every year per CDC. 1000 had encephalitis (brain infection). Parents tend to have different concerns than their kids.
