Dr Oz: Measles Outbreak + Why Get Vaccinated
Dr Oz said a lot of people have been asking him about the measles outbreak and he wanted to address the concerns and encourage parents to get re-vaccinated and vaccinate their kids. He explained that measles is one of the most contagious viruses know and in an unvaccinated population, it only takes one person with the measles to infect up to 18 people. Just one dose of the measles vaccine gives up to 93% prevention of the virus.

Dr Oz: Who’s At Risk For Measles
Dr Oz then explained that if you’re born before 1957, you’re considered immune because more than likely you were exposed to the measles back then. If you were born in 1957 or later and you’re not vaccinated, it wore off, or you’re at high risk, you should talk to your doctor about getting the measles vaccine.
Dr Oz shared that there’s a group of people who at high risk for measles, and those people include students who at 18 or older, healthcare workers, international travelers, or those who come into contact with babies. Everyone else is considered low risk and you shouldn’t have to worry about it as much.

Dr Oz: Moisturizer + Eye Cream With Antioxidants
Cindy shared that when she was 40 she met a woman from the Philippines who said as soon as you step out of the shower, pat your skin, and then massage moisturizer into your skin all over your body from the shoulders down.
