Diseases Cured Or Almost Eradicated Thanks To Vaccines

Addicting Info ? All The Diseases That Have Been Cured And Almost Been Eradicated Thanks To Vaccines (Images)

If you have been vaccinated, thank you for helping to rid the world of some of the most horrible diseases.

If you have not been vaccinated or you have not vaccinated your kids for any reason, I hope you enjoy being the .01% of people who still get things like diphtheria and measles. I hope you enjoy being among the .25% of people suffering from the mumps. Still not enough? I hope you enjoy being among .75% of people who still get pertussis.

Thanks to the Daily Kos for providing us with three important graphs which show how wonderful vaccines have been to our country and how many lives they have saved:



According to the CDC:

Before the middle of the last century, diseases like whooping cough, polio, measles, Haemophilus influenzae, and rubella struck hundreds of thousands of infants, children and adults in the U.S.. Thousands died every year from them. As vaccines were developed and became widely used, rates of these diseases declined until today most of them are nearly gone from our country.

Nearly everyone in the U.S. got measles before there was a vaccine, and hundreds died from it each year. Today, most doctors have never seen a case of measles.

More than 15,000 Americans died from diphtheria in 1921, before there was a vaccine. Only one case of diphtheria has been reported to CDC since 2004.

An epidemic of rubella (German measles) in 1964-65 infected 12½ million Americans, killed 2,000 babies, and caused 11,000 miscarriages. In 2012, 9 cases of rubella were reported to CDC.


Wow. We go from hundreds of dying every year from measles to most doctors never seeing a case. We went from 15,000 Americans dying a year from diphtheria to only 1 person suffering from it in the last 10 years. We went from 12 million infected individuals, 2,000 dead babies and 11,000 miscarriages from rubella to only 9 cases.

How about this:



How Stuff Works Health reported:

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average life expectancy at the beginning of the 20th century was 47.3 years. A century later, that number had increased to 77.85 years, due largely to the development of vaccinations and other treatments for deadly diseases.

Of course, vaccines and treatments only work if they’re given, which is why many of these diseases still persist in poorer, developing countries. Despite the success of vaccines, only one of these diseases — smallpox — has been erased from the globe.

Because of vaccines, 12 deadly diseases can be cured including the chicken pox, diphtheria, Invasive H. flu, Malaria, Pneumococcal disease, polio, tetanus, typhoid fever, Yellow fever and smallpox.

And finally, the icing on top of the cake, courtesy of the National Health Service of England:

Due to vaccinations, we no longer see smallpox, and polio has almost been eradicated. No wonder vaccination is considered a modern miracle.

Vaccination is one of the greatest breakthroughs in modern medicine. No other medical intervention has done more to save lives and improve quality of life.



If you have vaccinated your kids and yourself, congratulations on helping the world to rid itself some of the most disastrous diseases. It feels pretty good being in overwhelming majority of people who won’t get these diseases because they made the right decision.

The thing I've noticed this week is how this issue has created strange bed fellows between the fringe left and the fringe right. California Liberals who don't think their shit stinks, and Fly over Libertarians pandering to the anti government base.

Not really.. Conservatives are common sense people, there are those that are on a fringe here or there just like the leftist have their fringe..

It is Leftist like Obama (as noted in the budget he sent to congress) that want to cut 50 Million out of the vaccination program in healthcare...

I have been vaccinated for Meningitis, Strep Pneumo, VZ, HBV, in the last 10 years


I think there are concerns with vaccinations, but which is the greatest danger.

CIA lied about WMDs

Obama Lied about Obamacare, Benghazi, IRS Gate etc

They are lying about MMGW (Not global warming just the MM part)

The USS Maine

Gulf of Tonkin

Cancer risks of abortion

Suicide risk post abortion

So, people have conditioned to not trust the government so much.

More States Are Letting Parents Refuse to Vaccinate Their Kids | Mother Jones

Quote:
In 2000, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared that measles had been eliminated in the United States. Now it's making a comeback, in large part due to parents who refuse to vaccinate their children.

This year's outbreak—more than 100 cases reported across 14 states—follows a dramatic rise in measles cases in 2014: 644 cases across 27 states. In light of the the potentially deadly disease's return, public health officials are expressing concern about rising vaccine exemption rates. Citing the risks of not vaccinating, Anne Schuchat, an assistant surgeon general and the director of the CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, stressed that measles could get "a foothold in the United States and [become] endemic again."



Every state requires children to get the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine before they enter kindergarten. (The vaccine is usually administered in two doses after a child's first birthday.) All states offer medical exemptions for kids with allergies, cancer, or compromised immune systems. Most offer religious exemptions as well. And now a growing number of states—20 as of this year—permit personal belief exemptions (PBEs) that allow parents to not to vaccinate for reasons of philosophy or conscience.

Nonmedical vaccine exemptions—the rules that allow parents to opt their kids out of required vaccines based on beliefs—are on the rise. Over the past four school years, there's been a 37 percent increase in exemptions filed. Between the the 2010-11 and 2011-12 school years, the rate of exemptions for incoming kindergartners jumped 30 percent. The CDC reports that 85 percent of people who go unvaccinated do so for personal or religious beliefs.

According to a 2012 study led by Saad Omer, a professor of global health and epidemiology at Emory University, allowing PBEs leads to fewer kids getting vaccinated. Opt-out rates in states with PBEs are more than double those in states with religious exemptions alone. These vaccination gaps result in higher rates of diseases like measles and whooping cough, especially in states where PBEs are easily obtained.

"We do know that states that have philosophical exemptions tend to have not only high rates of exemption but also high rates of disease," Omer says. But some states grant exemptions more readily than others. In states such as Colorado, a parent's signature is all that is required. But in states like Arkansas, parents must first establish why they are seeking an exemption or receive counseling from a health care provider. "We have found that the more difficult the requirements are, the lower the rate of exemption and the lower the rate of disease," Omer says.

Looking at data from 1991 to 2005, Omer's team found that states with easy exemption procedures had whooping cough rates up to 90 percent higher than states that made it more difficult to get exemptions.

So, it's not the immigrants as the bigoted, racist right wingers declare. It's the bigoted, racist right wingers.

There's a Rotary Club near you...

Yes because Mexico, Central American, Pacific rim, indonesian nations DO NOT HAVE Vaccine programs.

So when they come to our country ILLEGALLY they come here UNVACCINATED.

now if the come here LEGALLY they must have the required vaccines for diseases found in their nation of origin.

But then again, LW, you just proved yourself to be felony stupid once again.

Because I buy very old books, I know pasteurizing milk has saved thousands of lives. Before pasteurizing milk, especially babies would die because of disease transmitted in milk.

Quote:
Pasteurization is a process that kills harmful bacteria by heating milk to a specific temperature for a set period of time. First developed by Louis Pasteur in 1864, pasteurization kills harmful organisms responsible for such diseases as listeriosis, typhoid fever, tuberculosis, diphtheria, and brucellosis.Nov 15, 2017
Consumers > The Dangers of Raw Milk: Unpasteurized Milk Can Pose ...
https://www.fda.gov/Food/ResourcesFo.../ucm079516.htm
It was awareness of all the lives saved by pasteurizing milk, and universal education, that gave so much hope to people at the turn of the century, from 1800 to 1900. I loved reading the enthusiastic explanation of lives saved in one of my old books.
