DEAR DR. ROACH: My mother had the measles. She also had mumps and German measles. She stayed home for a few days, used up a box of tissues and went back to school a week later. But some doctors quickly learned that if they didn't pretend that these viruses were deadly, they wouldn't make any money. Anyone fearful of these viruses is a product of brainwashing. How many people in this country have died of measles this year? ZERO. But many had measles. So what did we learn? Measles is not deadly. -- M.F.D.
