Measles skeptic ordered to pay $106G after German court ruling

A German biologist who does not believe measles is a virus offered a reward to anyone who could prove him wrong. After a doctor provided evidence that measles is a virus, the biologist refused to pay and is now being ordered by a court to follow through with his promise, BBC News reported.

Four years ago, Stefan Lanka— who believes measles is psychosomatic— offered 100,000 euros ($106,300) for proof it is a virus. German doctor David Barden gathered evidence from various medical studies, but Lanka dismissed the findings.
