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]
Messrs Bill Logan and Pete Snodgrass practice their business in Adelaide. They have a Facebook page, Dr Pete and Dr Bill Chiropractic; and a website, which I think is also called Dr Pete and Dr Bill Chiropractic, although the business appears to be Logan Chiro. Who knows. I don’t. Logan is a member of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia, and features on the above business website; whilst Snodgrass appears to have made his own association, as founder and president of World Chiropractic Alliance Australasia (the URL goes nowhere). It was harder than usual to find his name anyway. The Yellow Pages listing which cites Snodgrass as a member of the CAA also goes nowhere, as does Snodgrass’ own website.
They take it to the streets of Adelaide, working their magic on babies. This photo was taken today, by a friend:
Anyway, as this series is about examples of anti-vaccinationism as practiced by chiropractors, have some lies from the Healthy Home Economist, no less:
So, when Pete and Bill state:
It pays everyone to read stories like these before making decisions on vaccinations…. I recommend that we don’t be sheep… Think, research and think again….
What Pete and Bill really mean is, “believe any old anti-vaccination lie you read on the internet, and share it to your customers as if it is the truth”.
All yours, CBA.
