"Mr. Amantea did not wash his hands between treating different patients,...."

I've been in many many chiropractic offices. One washed his hands between patients. Then again, when you are taught to not believe in the "germ theory", what do you expect?

And let's be clear, washing your hands between patients is important to prevent the spread of germs, however, the elephant in the room is that the chiropractic board is allowing chiropractors to treat patients with bizarre and unfounded "treatments/chiropractic techniques".

You would that in this day and age, chiropractors would be required to ONLY use well founded and well researched treatments. That they would be required to use "best practice" models when rendering treatment. And to not engage in "treatments" like the popular activator, nucca, gonstead, thompson "techniques" etc.

But maybe that's just me.

The imbecile wisdom is bashing the chiropractor in the above story for not washing his hands.
How about clicking on this next story:

MD's are murdering over 100,000 innocent patients a year, in this country alone, which amounts to a new holocaust each year, with well researched prescription drugs. But they did wash their hands before prescribing those lethal drugs. That makes the 100,000 grieving families feel much better after the funerals.

"wisdom is bashing the chiropractor in the above story for not washing his hands."

Indeed I am. Do you even understand why?

Do YOU even understand why there should be valid reproducible research before employing chiropractic treatments?

Do you understand that all drugs have side effects and that there are adverse outcomes even when prescribed properly? Do YOU understand the concept of "weighing the benefits vs. risks"?

Rhetorical questions mr. chiropractor. I was a chiropractor, I understand your education and thought process. I understand, for example, that chiropractors are taught to deny the "germ theory" for instance. You want to deny that?

Needs to be repeated--and often. Again and again. Enjoy.

Get this. According to the imbecile wisdom, who is not an MD, I have a warped sense of integrity since I think 100,000 innocent patients who are murdered each year at the hands of MD's and drug companies in this country is not acceptable. In fact, I think it's a holocaust. Wisdom, again, who is not an MD, thinks that number is just fine since none of his family members were among the ones killed by properly prescribed, evidence based prescription drugs.

Bottom line: The number of deaths directly caused by prescription drugs is unacceptable. According to the imbecile wisdom, we're just expected to accept these adverse side effects as 'business as usual' with no MD or drug company held accountable, since, hey, what did you expect? My guess that idiot would change her tune if one of her family members were among that 100,000 per year. Naw, maybe not. She's too depraved to care even if one of her family members were among that number. That's the sort of integrity the imbecile offers.


On the other hand, drugs are very well researched and 'evidence' based. That doesn't stop MD's and drug companies from murdering over 100,000 innocent Americans each year--and maiming 500,000 more with properly prescribed drugs. Again, that's EACH year. A new holocaust each year--right in this country and right under our noses. The imbecile wisdom, who is not an MD, says that number of deaths per year is "perfectly acceptable" since the drugs that killed these trusting patients had tons of research backing them up. Try telling that to the grieving familes who lost sons and daughters. That will make them feel a whole lot better after each mourner shovels dirt on their caskets.

Whereas, chiropractic treatments are NOT.

The imbecile wisdom, who is not an MD, sees nothing wrong with 100,000 senseless deaths caused by "properly prescribed drugs" per year in this country alone. In fact, she condones it as "part of doing business."
Tell that to the grieving families after the funerals.
