    The U.S. is on track for measles cases to be the highest they’ve been since 1996, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Through Aug. 24, there were 159 confirmed cases of measles, putting the U.S. on track to have its worst year in more than a decade. Last year there were 222 cases, and the CDC said the recent uptick is because of parents who refuse to have their children vaccinated.
