Anti-vaccine chiropractors 29

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]

Mario Stefano makes a living serving customers at Vital Family Chiropractic, in Adelaide. Stefano is a board member of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia’s South Australia outlet. He is the chair of public relations, as seen here, in one of our schools, with one of our children. An anti-vaccinationist, in one of our schools, working with our children. Think about that some more:

Stefano advises his customers against the influenza immunisation, arguing that chiropractic adjustments are effective in preventing infection:

Stefano 1 no flu shotsHe also links to absurd articles which spread misinformation about the influenza vaccine:

Stefano 2 nothing organic about flu shotThis delusional video claims that chiropractic was effective in reducing mortality in the 1918 influenza pandemic:

Stefano 4 chiro and the 1918 flu pandemicAnd, it’s not just the influenza immunisation with which Stefano has problems. It’s all of them. Here he is, in his business’s Facebook group, citing the German anti-vaccine homeopath’s laughable survey:

Stefano 5 soliciting testimonialsIt goes all the way to the top. Especially at the CAA SA branch. Have a word, won’t you, CBA?

    I am guessing the CBA is getting sick of you pointing out what a p*ss poor job they are doing policing their own ranks…. and so they should.

    Keep up the pressure, eventually they will have to admit they have no power over these quacks and legislation will be introduced to clip the wings of the nutters…. just like the other Anti-Vaccination Nutters (AVN for short) managed to do.

    Well, if they had any type of system in place they could impose fines.
    The TGA manage this with Pharma if the promote outside indications of medicines, seems Chiropractors are allowed to run around like un registered dogs.
    So what are they waiting for?
    Great job keep up the good work Hank, which the CBA can’t be bothered to do.
    It is not a profession, it is a rabble.
