Townsville, Australia
Chiropractor discovers a one dollar coin in throat of a ten year old girl.

From the article… A Townsville girl who has been living with a $1 coin in her throat for more than six years is relieved to be finally rid of the small change which has caused her and her family so much grief. Dr Evette Christopoulos, of Back2health Chiropractic, said after examining Onnalisa she sent her for X-rays because her overall range of motion was limited and she was under-developed for her age. “On the X-rays we found a $1 coin sitting in her throat,” Dr Christopoulos said.

Interference to the body, whether it be from subluxation or swallowed coins, can have dramatic effects.

Toronto, Canada
The College of Chiropractors of Ontario is planning to ban all Canadian chiropractors from advising patients on vaccinations.

You’ve got to hand it to the chiropractors in Canada that stand up and voice their opinions. The Canadian medical establishment and some of the political chiropractic groups in Canada appear to be hell bent on oppression, meddling, and persecution of some fine doctors.

I’ve been staying away from these trash types of articles, the press has been full of them for years. Just thot it was time to take a look at what our Canadian brothers and sisters are going to endure next.

In my opinion, the only reason there is so much trash talk in Canada is due to great many dedicated, disciplined, loving, serving DCs there are in such country.

Heres a quote (not from the article) Samuel Adams… The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men.
