The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared measles eliminated in 2000. But now, there have been over 100 reported cases across 14 states. The rise in cases has lead Prof. Rebecca Weintraub to ask, why are we arguing about measles vaccines in 2015 and what are the implications? http://hvrd.me/Jl49E

1. Some of the population distrust the government
2. Some don't trust science
3. Some don't understand the ingredients, nor understand biochemistry.
4. Some are hung up on the "all natural" lifestyle, as if veggies fight disease.

It comes down to basic fear, paranoia, and lack of education.
