Healy World Australia Pty Ltd fined $26,640 for alleged unlawful advertising of a TENS device: A win for FSM who have been advocating for action on the unlawful advertising of a device marketed by Healy World Australia as part of a multi-level marketing program.
Healy claimed all sorts of miraculous functions of their Healy Bioresonance Device, though it does not take an expert to see that these claims are largely based on pseudoscientific principles.

‘I believed if I fed my kids well – they wouldn’t get whooping cough’: “I wasn’t a happy mother – I was making a rod for my back. I had to keep things secret and got my children to lie. I remember saying to my son when vaccinations were coming up at school to tell them he was getting it at the GP.
“This is crazy cognitive dissidence when you are raising your children as truth seekers. I was making them lie, but I was justifying it in my head.”

A history of syringes and needles: The Invention of the Hypodermic Needle. Whilst not a pleasant experience, most of us take for granted how easy and quick it is to have a blood test taken, receive a vaccine, or have an intravenous cannula inserted. Creating a hygienic and safe connection between body compartments such as veins or muscles and an external medical instrument was a ground-breaking achievement. Those of us who have difficult veins would have had an even more uncomfortable time with the sharpened goose quills that used to be used!
