Anti-vaccine chiropractors 14

In the previous post we met the incomparable Mark Postles. The Chiropractic Board of Australia should be busy with him for quite some time.

Postles practices his business at Coast Chiropractic Kawana, and it would appear that his daughter, Ali Postles, is also affiliated with that place of business. She appears on the business group photo:

Although not as overt in her anti-vaccinationism as her father, Ali Postles shows that she has it in her to bring out the anti-vaccine misinformation, on her professional Facebook page.

Yes, the flu shot is full of toxic chemicals, like mercury, except when it isn’t. But, citing the US’s premier anti-vaccination organisation, the NVIC, to back you up wins a prize:

About reasonable hank

I'm reasonable, mostly.

    Now, now. The various fluorides *are* toxic. Why, sodium fluoride is toxic for adults at around 5-10 grams! Indeed, hexafluorosilicic acid has an LD50 of 70 mg/kg and sodium fluorosilicate has an LD50 of 125mg/kg in rats (human mileage will vary) and fluorosis in humans occurs at >6mg per day of fluorine.
    Of course, that means you have to be drinking from the fluoride storage tank and not the water supply!
    On a serious note, if one has a well, there is a decent chance of having fluorides in the well water from natural sources.
    If that is also a hazard, perhaps we should return to our planet of origin, as this one is obviously too toxic and hostile to us.

    Better yet, send these idiotic people to another planet. I suggest Venus.

      We are bathed in ”toxic chemicals” – think what happens if your potassium level gets too high….scary, isn’t it?

        Quite true! Or too low.
        Or if one’s calcium level is too high or too low.

        Well, it doesn’t work for very long before it breaks down.
        The entire group barely gets through reproducing before they break down.

    Chiros seem to have a pseudo-neoconservatism glean to the sales pitch. It’s not what they offer but how poison – sorry, TOXIC – the world is that we need to internalise. The enemy is all around.

    • wzrd1 says:

      Well, to give due credit, the world and indeed, our own bodies are all lousy with toxins. That’s why we have such excessive kidney capacity and such a humongous liver. 😉

    Interesting to see how many Chiros use FB publicly. The AHPRA Chiro Board Code of Conduct has a fair bit of detail on what is acceptable and unacceptable advertising, but seems silent on the use of internet and social media. AHPRA is developing the general health practitioner code of conduct framework to include appropriate use of social medic. Nursing already has a policy:
    Nursing and Midwifery Board – Information SHeet on Social Media (Sept 2010).

    The draft (May 2013) AHPRA policy says:
    ”When using social media, health practitioners should remember that the National Law, the Code of conduct and the Advertising guidelines apply.
    Registered health practitioners should only post information that is not in breach of these obligations by:
    • not breaching professional obligations
    • not breaching confidentiality and privacy obligations (such as discussing patients or posting pictures of procedures, case studies, patients or sensitive material which may enable patients to be identified and/or without having obtained consent in appropriate situations), and/or
    • presenting information in an unbiased, evidence informed context and not making unsubstantiated claims.”
