The wife of Bill Shine, head of the White House Communications, was ridiculed on social media because he claimed that childhood diseases like measles keep you healthy and fight cancer. & # 39;
Darla Shine caused a furore after she had sung a series of bizarre remarks about child vaccinations during a measles outbreak that is currently populating the country.
Shine, whose husband joined the Trump board last year, claimed that her children & # 39; alas & # 39; have received the MMR vaccine so that they do not have the lifelong natural immunity & # 39; she has because she did not receive the injection.
Darla Shine, seen here with husband Bill, caused a furore after she had tweeted that teething problems & # 39; keep you healthy and fight cancer & # 39;
& # 39; I had the #Measles # Mumps #ChickenPox as a kid and so did every boy I knew – Unfortunately my children had #MMR so they never have the lifelong natural immunity that I have before they to add: & # 39; Come on to breathe! . & # 39;
She called CNN to & # 39; fake news & # 39; to report on the current outbreak of measles in certain parts of the country, even though they quoted figures from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and quoted advice from public health officials.
Shine later tweeted: & # 39; Here we go LOL #measlesoutbreak on #CNN #fake #hysteria. The entire population of baby-tree vultures living today had the #Measles as children. Bring back our #ChildhoodDiseases, they keep you healthy and fight cancer.
Darla Shine continued to defend her posture during the day while criticizing social media.
& # 39; I had the measles, that was the whole point of my tweet. I have natural immunity for the entire life span, "she tweeted.
The CDC reports that almost all children in the decade had measles before 1963 by the time they were 15 years old and about three to four million people were infected every year.
Her tweets generated hundreds of reactions throughout the day, with most social media users disbelieving about her claim to promote childhood diseases that can be fatal without vaccines.
Shine, who writes a blog page named & # 39; Darla Shine & # 39; s Happy Housewives Club & # 39 ;, got a response to her comments to vaxxer and claimed she had immunity because she had measles, mumps, and chickenpox
She responded to reports of the current outbreak of measles in the pockets of the country
A user named Roman Baird answered: Well, you were lucky. Fortunately, you are not deaf. Fortunately, you have not contracted encephalitis. (Oh you can still do it) I also had mumps. I am sterile. Because mumps.
• Rows of peer-reviewed scientific data or hair-on-fire conspiracy theories? I will rely on fact-based evidence, thank you. & # 39;
Many call reputable public health statistics that show a large drop in infant mortality due to the MMR vaccine.

Another user, Phil Zopinion, claimed: "Immunization has had a major impact on reducing the number of deaths from measles. In the period 2000-2013 vaccination against measles has resulted in an estimated 15.6 million deaths. & # 39;
Federal health officials have identified more cases of measles, bringing the total national number to 101, the latest figures show.
So far, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that there have been confirmed cases since 1 January in 10 US states.
Cases have been confirmed in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas and Washington.
Of those states, four – Colorado, Oregon, Texas and Washington – allow exceptions for philosophical and / or personal beliefs.
Her attitude led to hundreds of reactions throughout the day, with the majority of social media users disbelieving about her claim to promote childhood diseases.
Especially Washington and New York struggled to control the disease that was considered eliminated 20 years ago.
Last month, Washington declared a public health disaster after an outbreak of measles that hit 53 people in Clark County.
Shine argued at a given moment that & # 39; lots & # 39; of the people who took the disease in Washington had received the MMR vaccine.
& # 39; People sms & # 39; and I spread lies about #vaccines. I retweet doctors, scientific research and wonder why #Media serves #MeaslesOutbreak unilaterally. Many of the children with #Measles in #Washington WERE #Vaccinated Go asked their #Governor. & # 39;
Measles is a highly contagious infection that is now rare due to the MMR vaccine (measles, mumps, rubella). Symptoms include fever, cough, runny nose and skin rash throughout the body
While people who get measles have a lifelong immunity, almost all people who receive the MMR vaccine have immunity.
The CDC recommends that children receive two doses of the MMR vaccine: one in 12-15 months of age and one in 4 to 6 years of age. After one dose, the vaccine is 93% effective; after two doses it is 97% effective – for the duration of a person's life.
The vaccine is about 97 percent effective. But those who are not vaccinated have a 90 percent chance of catching measles when they breathe the virus, says the CDC.
Before the measles vaccine was available, more than 500,000 cases were diagnosed each year in the US, with approximately 500 annual deaths.
Darla has a blog page and claims that she helps housewives build their own business from their kitchen & # 39;
In 2018, 372 cases of measles were confirmed in 26 states and the District of Columbia, reported the CDC.
Her husband joined the Trump administration earlier this year after resigning from Fox in the midst of questions about his treatment of allegations of sexual harassment and discrimination that led to the departure of CEO Roger Ailes and Fox News-personality Bill O & # 39 Reilly.
