Just a few minutes ago, on the ABC website – Anti-vaccination group fails to stop advertising ‘cancer treatment’:
The anti-vaccination group that goes under the name Australian Vaccination Network (AVN) has failed to comply with a Government order to stop advertising a product as a treatment for cancer.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) found the group advertised “black salve” on its website and on a DVD… The TGA says the substance is corrosive and essentially burns off layers of skin and surrounding normal tissue, and can leave significant scarring.
The authority ordered last month the group must stop advertising the product as a treatment for cancer, or suggesting that other cancer treatments are ineffective.
Apparently the TGA is yet to take further action. I hope they do so, soon.
