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]
Mr Michael Miller is a chiropractor who conducts his business at Tamborine Mountain Chiropractic. He advised me via email that he is not a member of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia; but, in my opinion he is more than amply qualified to slide right into their ranks.
Here he shares one of the latest anti-vaccine lies to circulate throughout the internet. He believes the CDC is hiding information regarding the SV-40 Polio vaccine contamination (which happened over 50 years ago), because the CDC removed that particular page, which is no longer relevant, from its site:
Oh. No wait. No it’s not. The information is freely available. Lots of it:
Do the Amish get autism? Why, yes they do. This is really, really bad. DRINK:
The German Homeopath! DRINK:
Is it true that the Vitamin K shot is dangerous? Well, of course not. It actually saves lives. This story is from Queensland, where Miller plies his trade. It features a dead baby. The mother followed the type of advice provided here, by Miller:
This last one is from a Facebook conversation where Miller allows honesty to creep through. He admits that he “shuns” vaccines, due to a vaccine injury. He also maintains that he will continue to provide his version of immunisation information to his customers, despite the CBA declaration to the contrary, only 3 days earlier:
I would never presume to tell a patient what to do with their child’s health but I will at least provide them with information for them to make an informed decision…
Usually when anti-vaccinationists claim to be the victim of a vaccine injury I tend to take it with a grain of salt, due to the over-abundance of crying wolf. But, in this case, I think he may be on to something. Miller appears to suffer from a chronic, if not terminal, case of Dunning-Kruger Syndrome.
Go hard, CBA. This guy is mocking you.
