Warning to Escape Babylon’s Judgment4 Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “‘Come out of her, my people,’so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues;

Previously eradicated diseases reemerge in US - World Socialist Web Site
The rise of diseases long thought to be largely eradicated in the US should give the working class cause for concern. The resurgence of measles, mumps and pertussis demonstrates that the for-profit health care system is incompatible with health needs. The recent outbreaks of tuberculosis and cholera also indicate that a national approach is inadequate in fighting such diseases.We Thought We Already Eradicated Measles -- But Thanks To Ongoing Anti-Vaccine Beliefs, It's Back | ThinkProgress
With further cuts to federal, state and local public health services on the agenda, there is little doubt that it is just a matter of time before another water- or food-borne illness creates a new health crisis.
Federal health officials are warning that measles — a highly-contagious respiratory infection that the U.S. virtually eradicated back in 2000 — is making a serious comeback. This year is on track to have the highest number of measles cases in the past 17 years, and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) researchers say that’s likely because of pervasive anti-vaccine beliefs that have allowed the disease to spread.
The CDC investigated a decades’ worth of measles cases, including new data from as recently as last month, and concluded that the number of infections have been steadily creeping up in recent years. There used to be about 60 annual cases of measles in the U.S. But so far this year, 159 cases of measles have been reported.
