Anti-vaccine chiropractors 13

The Chiropractic Board of Australia has had enough:

“We will not tolerate registered chiropractors giving misleading or unbalanced advice to patients, or providing advice or care that is not in the patient’s best interests,” chairman Phillip Donato said.

Dr Donato said chiropractors should only provide evidence-based treatment and anyone with concerns should report them. [Sydney Morning Herald August 9 2013]

Oh boy. This one is special. Put on your derpin’ goggles, folks.

Mark Postles is a highly regarded elder statesman of the Australian chiropractic community. He is a member of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia. He conducts his business at Coast Chiropractic Kawana, in Queensland.

I must say, out of all of the Australian chiropractors I’ve been perusing, Postles is probably the most overtly honest about his anti-vaccinationism; and for this I thank him. Let’s have a look at Postles’ honesty.

This is a wonderful anti-vaccine post which hides behind the duplicity of purportedly being written by a chemist; someone readers would normally trust to know about doses making poisons, and medicine, and science, and the like. Not so:

Postles doesn’t stop at providing appalling anti-vaccination misinformation, the type of which Meryl Dorey would be proud. He also includes testimonials on his professional Facebook page:
