WHO & UNICEF recommend vitamin A be administered to children with measles

“Several recent investigations have indicated that vitamin A treatment of children with measles in developing countries has been associated with reductions in morbidity and mortality. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) issued a joint statement recommending that vitamin A be administered to all children diagnosed with measles in communities where vitamin A deficiency (serum vitamin A <10 µg/dL) is a recognized problem and where mortality related to measles is ≥1%. The recommended regimen is 100 000 IU by mouth at the time of diagnosis for infants younger than 12 months of age, and 200 000 IU for older children.”


Vitamin A Treatment of Measles

Let’s move on to vitamin A in the treatment of measles and the prevention of severe cases of measles. Lets start as well with some background on the lack of major media attention to this actually important issue of vitamin A in the treatment of measles. In fact vitamin A is much more important than the dangerous MMR vaccination. Vitamin C is also anti-viral. If you combined vitamin A with highly absorbable liposomic encapsulated vitamin C you could likely avoid any chance of getting severe measles and with any resulting complications. Then you as well will have immune system beneficial life time immunity. No vaccine can do that. See as well the vitamin C pages here on this site.

    1. Hi TracyJane. I found that meme in the article on the same day on Vitamin A … or maybe you were referring to that? I posted it also at FB. I have just purchased her book “just a little prick’ will take a look in there & see if can find anything. Somebody just sent me this link too from the Gisborne Herald with a comment from Hilary that may interest you …. http://gisborneherald.co.nz/opinion/4306259-135/measles-vaccination-is-not-protecting-against?fbclid=IwAR0E0wlkp0H9RkaQ5w_7RtgGlBtbqtNkQOokejXKf-mNjp80Jk_cSaerfUk
