Darla Shine, the wife of Bill Sheen's White House Communications Director, seems to be writing about childhood illnesses, claiming that diseases like measles, mumps and chickenpox "keep you healthy and fight with cancer. Health experts warn that the statement is not true and contributes to misinformation that can cause harm.
Darla Sheen, who is known to publish stories with anti-vaccination claims, wrote: "The whole baby boom alive today has
# measles as children."

Her account is not confirmed by Twitter, but notes that she is Bill Sheen's wife, Lieutenant Lieberman, a temporary medical director of the American Cancer Society, told The Washington Post on Thursday, that there is no evidence that measles infection makes a person healthier later in life or helps prevent cancer.
Besides, Lichtenfeld – It's easy to forget the severity of the disease that came with measles when we were young.
"This is a real disease with real consequences," he said. "Fortunately, for most people, these consequences were not serious, but it is an infection and can cause life-threatening events. It can cause pneumonia and cause meningitis. Fortunately, these complications are rare, but they happen – and the children die as a result of a measles infection.
"I think that over time it becomes part of our past and it becomes less relevant and less important as we move in time, and we forget how serious the problem is for those who have grown up in this generation, "Liechtenfeld said.
Researchers are increasingly concerned about a potentially lethal neurological disease that can develop as a delayed complication of measles after the virus has been dormant in human bodies for many years.
Measles is highly contagious.
Before the measles vaccine was introduced in 1963, most children had a disease – about 3 million to 4 million patients each year. United States, according to data from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Of these, 48,000 were hospitalized, 400 to 500 died and 1,000 suffered from a serious complication known as e
. In 2000, almost four decades after the parents started vaccinating their children, measles were declared to be eliminated in the United States.
The CDC data show that between 2000 and 2018 there were an average of 140 measles cases per year in the United States. There were also three reported deaths during that time – one in 2002, one in 2003 and one in 2015
But in recent years there have been numerous outbreaks against the backdrop of an anti-vaccination movement, which is maintained partly by fraudulent studies from 1998 that allegedly show a link between a preservative used in vaccines and autism. In the outbreak of measles in the Northwest Pacific, where anti-vaccine groups have long been active, nearly 60 cases have been reported in Washington and Oregon.
Many studies have provided convincing evidence that vaccinations do not cause autism. is still a problem. The World Health Organization recently called "vacillational hesitation" as one of the "Ten Threats to Global Health in 2019":
The reasons why people choose not to vaccinate are complex; The WHO vaccine advisory group identifies complacency, inconvenience in accessing vaccines and lack of trust are key reasons for hesitation. Healthcare workers, especially those in the community, remain the most trusted counselor and influencing vaccination decisions and should be supported to provide reliable and reliable information on vaccines.
Shine shared a CNN article on how doctors from the Mayo clinic gave the patient a cancer of a measles-like measles virus similar to a measles vaccine, "and then the patient went into remission.
Liechtenfeld, with the American Cancer Society, said the measles virus was not used to treat cancer, but rather a version that was manipulated to specifically attack certain cancer cells.
"It is very different in any way, form or form from giving patients disease to try to cure cancer," he said. "It's just not what we're doing."
"Measles do not protect us from cancer. The epidemic does not protect us from cancer, "Liechtenfeld added. "These are diseases that kill. These are diseases that affect millions and millions of people and it is very easy to forget the lost lives or lives that have been greatly affected by the epidemic of measles because we are prone to forget. We did not experience or remember it, or we were not aware of it. Let me assure you that this is a very serious illness and we do not have to see it. "
