According to the book's description on Amazon, author Stephanie Messenger "has devoted her life to educating people about vaccines and natural health choices."

Natural meaning anti-vax, of course. From the book's back cover

Melanie's Marvelous Measles was written to educate children on the benefits of having measles and how you can heal from them naturally and successfully. Often today, we are being bombarded with messages from vested interests to fear all diseases in order for someone to sell some potion or vaccine, when, in fact, history shows that in industrialized countries, these diseases are benign and, according to natural health sources, beneficial to the body.

Having raised three children vaccine free and childhood disease free, I have experienced many times when my children's vaccinated peers succumb to the childhood diseases they were vaccinated against. Surprisingly, there were times when my unvaccinated children were blamed for their peers' sickness. Something which is just not possible when they didn't have the diseases at all.
The internet isn't taking this one lying down, of course; the Amazon reviews include requests for a Braille version for a child blinded by measles and a glowing review from someone who claims to "specialize in itty bitty coffins". Leave your own review and, more importantly, VACCINATE YOUR KIDS.

Nurse Nicole does not actually exist. Instead, her Tinder profile was set up as part of a health awareness campaign run by Matches for Men's Health. When a Tinder match is made, Nurse Nicole responds to the sometimes salacious texts from suitors with pithy, health-related comebacks encouraging trips to the doctor for prostate exams, testicular cancer screenings and colonoscopies. If the men get too worked up, she will even suggest blood pressure monitoring.

A newly released study shows that regular drinkers are less likely to die prematurely than people who have never indulged in alcohol. You read that right: Time reports that abstaining from alcohol altogether can lead to a shorter life than consistent, moderate drinking.
