Anti-vaccination pamphlets dropped in letterboxes of Darwin northern suburbs - NT News

NORTHERN suburbs residents have been targeted by anti-vaccine campaigners, with pamphlets dropped in letterboxes­.

The pamphlets, which feature questions including “is the HPV vaccine causing infertility” and “do vaccines cause autism” have been slammed by medical professionals.

Australian Medical Association NT president Robert Parker said the pamphlets were dangerous as they were factually incorrect.

“Vaccines have had a massive effect on improving children’s health,” he said.

“100 years ago we had diphtheria and measles. People forget these things existed because now we have vaccines for them.”

Dr Parker said he uses one particular story to try to convince nonbelievers to vaccinate their children. “The story I tell is of a woman who refuses to give her child the rubella vaccine,” he said.

“20 years on, that child gets pregnant, and while pregnant she gets a rubella infection....

Toxic chemicals in Darwin seafood - Sky News Australia

Elevated levels of toxic chemicals have been found in seafood in Darwin waterways contaminated by old fire-fighting foams used at a nearby military base.

Pollutants from the Northern Territory air force base have leeched into Rapid and Ludmilla creeks, which the Defence Department says aren't safe for swimming.

NT government test results released in July revealed fish and crustaceans from the two creeks are safe to eat up to three times per week.

At a community meeting on Wednesday night, Defence's Steven Grzeskowiak said initial findings were in line with that.

He assured residents who live in the investigation area that their bore water is safe to drink.

But home-grown produce on these properties could potentially pose a health risk because of poisonous PFAS, or poly-fluoroalkyl, concentrations in soil.

A PRELIMINARY investigation into a plane crash that killed two men in the Darwin rural area has found the aircraft twice “disappeared from the radar” before slamming to the ground.
