About the Author

Please note that the following description is provided by the publisher/author of this title and presents the subjective opinions of the publisher/author, which may not be substantiated. The description does not express the views of Amazon.

The author/publisher writes: “Melanie's Marvelous Measles was written to educate children on the benefits of having measles and how you can heal from them naturally and successfully. Often today, we are being bombarded with messages from vested interests to fear all diseases in order for someone to sell some potion or vaccine, when, in fact, history shows that in industrialized countries, these diseases are quite benign and, according to natural health sources, beneficial to the body. Having raised three children vaccine-free and childhood disease-free, I have experienced many times when my children's vaccinated peers succumb to the childhood diseases they were vaccinated against. Surprisingly, there were times when my unvaccinated children were blamed for their peers' sickness. Something which is just not possible when they didn't have the diseases at all. Stephanie Messenger lives in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, and devotes her life to educating people about vaccine dangers and supporting families in their natural health choices. She has the support of many natural therapists and natural-minded doctors.”

There are children with compromised immune systems (either naturally or via treatments for diseases such as leukemia) that cannot be vaccinated.

Perhaps the author is thinking that which does not kill you makes you stronger.

Format: Paperback
I can only presume that the author was born after the successful vaccination programme made people complacent about the dangers of measles. I was not so lucky. In the epidemic of my childhood I was nearly blinded, and still have scars on my eyeballs. I was the lucky member of the family; my sister died from complications. Measles kills children. This book is irresponsible and misleading at best. At worst it could lead to the death of a child.
Edit to add in the light of the current UK measles epidemic.
It is so sad to see that the loss in herd immunity due to opinions like this have lead to the return of a disease we thought to be nearly eradicated. Since last November, 1 in 5 infants who have caught the disease as they were too young to be vaccinated, have had to be hospitalised. This is not a benign disease that we should be encouraging children to catch.

Isn't Melanie lucky that she didn't get pneumonia from her measles like 1 in 15 children (7%) do? I had measles when I was a toddler in the 1950s before there was a measles vaccine available. I was in hospital in an oxygen tent for over a week with bilateral pneumonia when I had measles. That is a much more frightening experience for a toddler than an injection. To find out the true story about immunisation go to:

Format: Paperback
The entire anti-vaccination movement originally arose out of a medical study linking vaccines with autism--a study which has not only been proven false, but was actually part of a moneymaking scheme by a con artist. And yet, it has grown to have a life of its own. Ironic, in that it has caused so many deaths.

If any parent is so irresponsible as to refuse to vaccinate their child, they need to be prepared for the true consequences, the potential death of their child, or of another person who comes into contact with their child. My child is immune compromissed. If she were ever to contract a deadly disease from an unvaccinated individual, you can be sure I would pursue criminal charges against the guilty parties. And yes, I would consider the author of this book to be on that list.

This book is based on the dangerous, ill-informed and just plain wrong idea that getting measles is somehow more beneficial than getting the measles vaccine. If you hate children so much that you want them to suffer from potentially fatal disease, by all means enjoy this book.

Want proof some people are just begging for a Darwin Award?

Or willing to kill children through their google educated ignorance?

Then read this book!

In my hospital I have recently seen 3 young people, all from a non vaccinating family (no surprise there) all come into the emergency department VERY sick with complications from measles.

Don't be a fool and don't harm your children. Vaccinate them to protect them from the 'Melanies' of this world.

I'm looking forward to the follow up books. Peter's Perfect Polio, Samantha's Super Smallpox and Carrie's Crazy Cholera!
Seriously though, World Health Organisation estimates world wide measles deaths in year 2000 to be 709 thousand falling to (a still massive) 164 thousand largely as a result of vaccination efforts. There is nothing marvellous about measles. Nothing.

This book is nothing more than anti vaccination propaganda, and it's incredibly irresponsible for anyone to give a child such a book. What's next? Edwards excellent encephalitis? Billys brilliant Brain Damage? Davids delightful Death?

This book is ludicrous. Its existence is a slap in the face of all the families whose children died of complication from measles.
