Increasing Focus on anti-Vaxxers and Cancer Scamsters..

Post by WhoseYourWolfie on Sat Mar 18, 2017 2:22 pm



A COUPLE of timely news stories concerning the ongoing problems of anti-vaxxers and cancer "cure" scamsters/quacks in our midst...

First off, this week there was a report of an unvaccinated child contracting tetanus up near Byron Bay in northern NSW --  the virtual 'spiritual home' for alternative life-styles and alt.medicine in Oz..

While it is a simple fact of life that those "anti-vaccination" proponents should be taken out the back and shot, it's not exactly a new problem  :

Meanwhile, earlier in the week, was the good news that justice is catching up with well-known cancer "cure" fraudster Belle Gibson  :

Though the lying evil-minded criminal deserves everything she's brought down on her own head, it still waits to be seen if she can afford to pay out on any damages awarded against her --  as there's a good chance that her legal costs could already have swallowed up much of her ill-gotten gains..

How strange to pretend you have cancer and make money out of it.

If there were no problems with vaccinations then there wouldn't be this...
