The highly contageous measles virus is back and it’s epicenter appears to have been Disneyland.  More than 75 cases spanning six states have emerged in recent weeks with the commonality between all of them being recent visits to the “Happiest Place on Earth”.

 

Measles was thought to have been virtually wiped out in the U.S. nearly 15 years ago, ow the virus has returned and is targeting those that have not been immunized.  Measles is especially difficult to detect initially because it has a 21-day incubation period, so it is conceivable that anyone visiting Disneyland within the last month or so could have been exposed.

 

The most common symptoms are fever, rash/inflamation and coughing.  While highly contageous, the virus isn’t life-threatening to most—nevertheless, the very young, the elderly and those with compromised immune symptoms run the greatest risk of becoming very ill or even dying from the virus.

 

 

Pope Francis Says, ‘Just Use the Rhythm Method’.

Earlier this week Pope Francis noted that it is irresponsible for people to have so many children.  Still, his holiness wasn’t about to tell Catholics everywhere to start using contraception, instead he’s opting to dispense the tried-and-true “birth control” of the rhythm method.  Pope Francis says that women should be in tune with their cycles and have sex following their ovulation.  This was a significant step for the Catholic church who previous advocated simply “pulling out”.
