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]
Jason Ronan is the co-owner at Toowoomba Family Chiropractic, a Queensland business. I couldn’t find out if he is a member of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia. If he isn’t he should be.
Ronan refers to immunisation as “Government mandated mass medication”. He finds it offensive. As you can see in this screenshot, Ronan is not averse to a challenge. It appears he is challenging the CBA to take a shot at him. Ronan admits what we all suspect to be the case: these chiropractors will always share anti-vaccination misinformation with their customers, and pretend they aren’t:
I tell people it’s their choice, but then explain why we chose NOT to immunise ours
Also note how he distorts the reasons for poor *influenza* uptake in Queensland Health? We all know it’s about access and time availability. Ronan states it must be a conspiracy. Why is it always a conspiracy with these people?
This is the sort of thing Ronan deems to be appropriate immunisation information: the Dianne Harper Gardasil lie. I’ll be exploring the source of his link in the next post:
