Great values in San Diego about measles, you would like no dangerous measles. I think it is more affecting the thousands. It is so neurologic to put in these chronic care hospitals. We are making this suffer causing encephalitis and measles may be imbedded in a discarded cheese. This is not such a benign disease, is it? We tend to underestimate how severe these diseases can be because in this sane age, we do not see those because the disease happen infrequently but when we turn back the clock, thirty or forty years when measles was endemic year after year. Before vaccinations, we saw children getting encephalitis and having permanent brain damage as a result of measles, as a result of chicken pox, as a result of a number of infections that we no longer see very commonly. That seems proof then that children from developing nation’s factions and they are the most important public health development in the last hundred years to improve the safety and health of our children’s lives. Believe me if we could find a study consider that we are one, there is a risk your father, our father, our grandfather I will do certain will go in pediatrics to do anything bad. The conclusion is that something good is certain. Absolutely, we are all in this for the same reason, to have our children be healthy, grown up to have normal lives and be successful without hurt. The health of these children transcends their health as adults and everything we do focuses on our success in life.
