Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

New figures from the World Health Organization suggest that around 13.8 million deaths were prevented during this time and reported cases declined by 77%. Good routine immunization levels and campaigns to vaccinate children are thought to be behind the figures. But the WHO says measles is still a global threat and some populations remain unprotected. The mortality estimates from the WHO show that annual measles deaths decreased from more than 562,000 in 2000 to 122,000 in 2012. Reported cases of measles worldwide declined from 853,480 to 226,722 over the same time.

No wonder, as every fool conspiracy theory finds a right-wing proponent such as intellectual luminary Michele "HPV Vaccine Causes Mental Retardation" Bachmann.

^ sad but true, my conservative fellows seem to bemoan science or even common sense. Vaccines rock! we can debate how they are created or administered, but they are effective, no doubt about that fact.
