    Australian court to penalize homeopaths for claiming vaccine alternative

    by John Timmer - Dec 22 2014, 11:03am PST

    The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has convinced a court that a company that offers homeopathic remedies was "misleading and deceptive" when it tried to argue that said remedies provide a viable alternative to the pertussis vaccine.

    The case dates back to early 2013. The company, Homeopathy Plus, posted a series of three articles that claimed (among other things) that the vaccine for pertussis (whooping cough) is unreliable and ineffective. Literature currently at the site criticizes vaccines more generally, while promoting homeopathy as effective in preventing "malaria, dengue fever, Japanese encephalitis, leptospirosis, and meningococcal disease."

    As noted in that article, the whooping cough articles drew the ire of Australia's Therapeutic Goods Administration Advertising Complaint Resolution Panel and Therapeutic Goods Administration, which sought a retraction of the published claims. Homeopathy Plus, however, declined to obey these orders. At that point, the Competition and Consumer Commission filed a federal case.

    Now, long after the original articles have been pulled, a court has ruled that the claims of the articles were bogus: "In fact, the Vaccine is effective in protecting a significant majority of people who are exposed to the whooping cough infection from contracting whooping cough." In addition, the claims that homeopathic remedies could help in this area also came in for criticism, with the court finding the articles "made false or misleading representations that Homeopathic Treatments have a use or benefit" in preventing pertussis infection.

    Penalties and other injunctive orders will be decided after a hearing in February.

    Dumb. Why make such claims without controlled clinical trials? They should know where that would go.

    Australian parents will lose government payments for not vaccinating their kids

    No jab, no pay.

    BEC CREW - 13 APR 2015

    Yesterday, the Australian government announced that from January 2016, parents who refuse to vaccinate their children stand to lose thousands of dollars of childcare and welfare benefits. The plan, which is the first of its kind in the world, abolishes the 'conscientious objection’ vaccination exemption that has reportedly seen 39,000 children miss out on vaccinations.

    "The overwhelming advice of those in the health profession is it's the smart thing and the right thing to do to immunize your children," Social Services Minister Scott Morrison told the press, adding that the decision had bipartisan support and was backed by the Australian Medical Association (AMA), which represents 27,000 doctors practicing locally.

    According to the AAP, the number of parents who have taken the 'conscientious objection' stance against vaccination has more than doubled over the past decade. While there is the concern that children whose parents don’t need government payments might still suffer from the ramifications of their parents’ political stance against vaccinations, the thousands that the plan will help is justification enough.

    "Vaccination remains one of the most effective public health measures that we have," AMA President, Brian Owler, told the press agency. "Whatever we can do to increase vaccination rates is important."

    "[I don't accept] people just claiming some sort of loose, undefined conscientious objection not to do the right thing by their children," Opposition Leader Bill Shorten added.

    A small percentage of anti-vaccers will still be able to claim the right to not vaccinate their kids on religious grounds, but the government says the criteria for this will be stricter than before.

    "Under the plan, recommended by the Productivity Commission in a recent inquiry into child care, parents who decide against immunizations could be up to $15,000 worse off per child," the AAP reports. "They would lose a childcare benefit of up to $205 a week, the childcare rebate of up to $7500 a year or the Family Tax Benefit A annual supplement of up to $726."

    Nice to see Australia do something socially progressive - it’s been a while.

    Good on the Ozzies!

    Be nice for us Kanucleheads to adopt a similar policy, unfortunately I can't see the US following suit because their health care and child benefits systems are so supremely borked, which is a tragedy because many people are going to suffer due to preventable diseases like polio, measles, chickenpox, I think that this is going to cost the general population/tax payers dearly in both cost and human suffering.

    yes good for AU
    Diseases cropping up in the US again due to the freaking anti vaxers need something serious done so they can not continue their woo.
    Not vaccinating due to "religious" beliefs still holds tho. :rolleyes:
    If diseases are caused by anti vaxers (due to their kids not getting vaccinated) and it is a threat to the general public then sorry, tough shit on religious beliefs.
