Pete Evans’ dangerous anti-vaxxer views were ripped to shreds by the medical community

The Australian medical community has teamed up to shred Pete Evan’s dangerous anti-vaxxer views.

Over the weekend, celebrity chef, 47, tried to bolster his unscientific theory that flu vaccines are ‘unsafe’ by uploading a letter to Instagram explaining how to test jabs.

The letter was written by the Therapeutic Goods Administration in response to an unnamed woman wondering if any 2020 flu flu safety tests called Fluad Quad were being conducted. was funded independently.

'Enough is enough!' The Australian medical community has teamed up to shred Pete Evans' dangerous anti-vaxxer views by revealing why his conspiracy theory is totally false

The TGA is responsible for approving public vaccines.

The letter explained that all safety tests for Fluad Quad were funded by companies with a financial interest in the product.

Formerly clear as a ‘gotcha’ moment, former My Kitchen Rules judge Pete cheerfully emphasized two paragraphs explaining that such an independent test does not exist.

“Are there any other questions you would like to answer after reading this question?” Pete smugly wrote in his caption.

However, if Pete had contacted the TGA himself, he would have learned that his conspiracy theory about vaccine safety does not hold up.

A TGA spokesperson, who spoke exclusively to Daily Mail Australia about Pete’s post, explained that Australia has laws to ensure that vaccines are safe no matter who finances the safety studies.

WHY VACCINES ARE IMPORTANT

Immunization is a simple, safe and effective way to protect people from harmful diseases before they come into contact with them.

Immunization protects not only individuals but also others in the community by reducing the spread of preventable diseases.

Research and testing is an essential part of developing safe and effective vaccines.

In Australia, vaccines must pass stringent safety tests before the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) will register them for use. Vaccine approval can take up to 10 years.

Before vaccines become publicly available, large clinical trials test them on thousands of people.

High-quality studies over many years have compared the health of large numbers of vaccinated and unvaccinated children. Medical information from nearly 1.5 million children around the world has confirmed that vaccination does not cause autism.

People were first concerned about autism and immunization after the medical journal The Lancet published a paper in 1998. This paper claimed that there was a link between the measles vaccine, mumps, rubella (MMR), and autism. Since then, scientists have discredited this article. The Lancet withdrew it in 2010 and printed an apology. The UK General Medical Council has removed the author from the medical registry for misconduct and dishonesty.

“Regardless of who finances the study, human studies should always involve independent ethical approval and adherence to the principles of international good clinical practice and human experimentation in the Helsinki Declaration,” the spokesperson explained.

The TGA representative explained that the TGA has a rigorous process when it comes to reviewing clinical trial results for all drugs – including Fluad Quad

The TGA is also investigating how tests are conducted. We need well-designed studies of sufficient length with a sufficient number of people representing the people for whom the vaccine is intended, “they explained.

“The TGA is also investigating the way trials are conducted,” a TGA spokesman, who spoke exclusively to Daily Mail Australia about Pete’s post, explained that Australia has laws to ensure vaccines are safe no matter who finances the safety studies

“The results should demonstrate that the vaccine’s benefits far outweigh the risks,” she added.

In addition, in approving certain vaccines for public use, the TGA also works with an independent government committee of scientific, medical and public health experts, the spokesperson explained.

They also explained the logical reason why most vaccine tests are funded by companies with a financial interest in the injections.

“What are the anti-vaxxers trying to achieve?” Meanwhile, Dr. Harry Nespolon, President of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, (photo) also destroyed Pete’s Instagram post on Wednesday

Simply put, due to the large number of vaccine trials – and the enormous cost of conducting such safety studies – it is unlikely that companies that have nothing to gain from the vaccine would have the incentive to finance them.

Meanwhile, Dr. Harry Nespolon, president of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, also destroyed Pete’s Instagram post on Wednesday.

‘The adjuvant over 65 flu vaccination has been used for many years to protect the elderly who are a vulnerable group when it comes to flu disease. What are the anti-vaxxers trying to achieve? the top physician told Daily Mail Australia.

“Maybe it’s time for the companies responsible for these platforms to take tougher measures to fight antivaxxer messages,” he also called for social media platforms like Instagram to take action against those who use their accounts to send dangerous messages. to spread

‘Enough is enough. Celebrities with a huge following abuse the community’s concern about COVID-19 to fuel vaccination fears and spread conspiracy theories such as 5G that affect our immune system, ” he said.

Dr. Nespolon warned that if anti-vaxxers are not stopped from spreading their harmful messages, public confidence in vaccinations and expert medical advice will be further eroded.

He also called for social media platforms like Instagram to take action against those who use their accounts to spread dangerous messages.

“Maybe it’s about time the companies responsible for these platforms took more stringent measures to combat reports against vaxxer,” he said.
