Pete’s anti- vax share plate

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - MIRANDA DEVINE -

“PALEO” Pete Evans has again whipped up a bowl full of con­tro­versy by shar­ing the stage at an up­com­ing “well­ness event” with anti-vaxxers.

The Syd­ney sem­i­nar, hosted by on­line sup­ple­ment com­pany In­ner Ori­gin, also fea­tures no­to­ri­ous flat earther and anti-vaxxer David “Av­o­cado” Wolfe.

The week­end, which costs over $430, in­cludes talks on health by Pete Evans.

Mr Evans has re­peat­edly found him­self in hot wa­ter by pro­mot­ing al­ter­na­tive medicine over ev­i­denced-based facts, in­clud­ing sug­gest­ing flu­o­ride is bad, sun­screen is un­nec­es­sary and bone broth can re­place in­fant for­mula. He has not spo­ken about vac­ci­na­tion.

Health Min­is­ter Brad Haz­zard blasted the My Kitchen Rules host for pro­mot­ing an anti-vac­cine mes­sage by as­so­ci­a­tion.

Aus­tralian Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion Pres­i­dent Dr Tony Bar­tone also said any­one who seeks to un­der­mine the vac­cine mes­sage “needs to be held to pub­lic ac­count”.
