The Message of Measles in The New Yorker Magazine

There is no scarcity  of information on the internet regarding measles, the current outbreak and the anti-vaccine movement.

However, if you seek a high quality publication on the public health impact of both the anti-vaccine movement and the recent measles outbreak in the United States then I refer you to this article recently published in the The New Yorker magazine.

We are witnessing a larger  public war against science based reality, suspicion of authority and rejection of expertise, one in which the consequences of misinformation are nearly as bad as the potential complications of measles.
