Texas lawmaker says he’s not worried about measles outbreak because of ‘antibiotics’

Again people with no understanding of the medical science passing laws that undermine public safety and harming people.   I live in Florida.  The state legislature has made it nearly impossible for me to get the medications I need.  My doctors have to jump through so many unnecessary hurdles imposed by lawmakers trying to look tough on the opioid crisis.  However the lawmakers lumped non-opioid drugs in with whole categories of drugs that doctors that specialize in treating long term intense pain can not prescribe the needed medications.   The law makes no sense as my primary care doctor can prescribe the medication that works best for me yet has no training in long term pain care, and the ones specially trained in it are forbidden to prescribe it.   So to get me the relief I need my pain specialist doctor just had to put me on a medication that doesn’t work as well and makes you very ill for weeks until your body adjusts to it.    Thanks Florida republican lawmakers.    Hugs

There is no treatment for measles, a highly contagious virus that can be fatal. Antibiotics treat bacterial infections and can’t kill viruses.

Right now, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is tracking six measles outbreaks across the nation, including one in Texas.

Before the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine was available in America, about 450 to 500 people died from measles each year. The CDC reports there has been at least one case of a measles death within the past five years. National and world health officials worry that an anti-vaccination movement could increase that number.

Some parents opt not to vaccinate because of the discredited belief that vaccines are linked to autism. The CDC has said that there is no link and that there are no ingredients in vaccines that could cause autism.

Another child has died due to denying medical science

“This case underscores the serious health and safety risks of taking medical advice from someone who lacks a license and the proper training that goes with it,” said Feuer. “These convictions send a strong message that my office will continue to hold accountable those whose actions place lives in danger.”

In August, 2014, Morrow came to the family’s Harbor Gateway home to treat the 13-year-old victim after he became extremely ill due to complications from his Type-1 diabetes. Shortly before the victim died, Morrow told the victim’s parents not to give him insulin but instead to administer the herbs that he was selling. The victim suffered a cardiac arrest and died the next day as a result of complications from his diabetes. The medical examiner determined the victim would have lived had he received proper medical treatment.
