“In a public talk, the Sydney chiropractor linked vaccines to asbestos, thalidomide and cigarettes, and said they contained bits of aborted fetus. The chiropractor backed the debunked research of deregistered British doctor Andrew Wakefield - which suggested the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine might cause autism - as ‘scientifically good’. The parents and pregnant women who attended the talk in March were told ‘homeopathic vaccines’ - which are regarded as scientific nonsense by most experts - were safer than conventional vaccines. The comments by Nimrod Weiner, who is vice-president of the Chiropractors Association of Australia (NSW), were recorded by Australian Doctor. They were condemned as ‘outrageous’ yesterday by the Australian Medical Association…Mr Weiner declined to comment, referring questions from The Australian to a PR company, which said the Chiropractors Association of Australia (NSW) had no position on vaccination and "any comments that Nimrod Weiner may have made would be his private opinions, not those of the association".” Australian press report (17th August 2011)
