    Thanks, Vaccines! Measles Vaccine May Reduce Deaths From Other Diseases

    http://www.popsci.com/measles-vaccin...tious-diseases

    The measles vaccine is generally considered to be one of public health’s great success stories; just over a century ago, in 1920, more than 7,500 Americans died from measles, but within the past 10 years, not one person has died from the disease. According to a study published today in Science, the measles vaccine has done more than protect against measles--it has made patients more resistant to a number of opportunistic diseases, such as tuberculosis, pneumonia, and sepsis.

    Let me ask a loaded question:

    How was TB treated prior to 1960?

    'We endorse the idea of voluntarism; self-responsibility: Family, friends, and churches to solve problems, rather than saying that some monolithic government is going to make you take care of yourself and be a better person. It's a preposterous notion: It never worked, it never will. The government can't make you a better person; it can't make you follow good habits.' - Ron Paul 1988

    Before antibiotics, you mean?

    From your link:
    During the pre-clinical era treatment consisted of the use of special diets, bed rest in sanatoria, and lung collapse therapy. The case fatality rate 5 years after diagnosis was 50% and treatment in a sanatorium was expensive and available only to the privileged few
    Not that it has anything to do with measles, but you asked.
