Be Reasonable: Episode #069 – Paul Boland


Marsh is joined by Paul Boland, a registered vet who regularly uses alternative medicine, and also treats human patients at his Klana Natural Health clinic. In this episode, we explore how Paul came to be an avid user of alternative medicine, why he felt he should expand his practice to treat people too, and what he makes of illnesses like COVID-19 and cancer.

    Yay! Managed to complete my conspiracy nut job alternative medicine quack bingo card during this episode and I’ve won a poseable Christopher Hitchens action figure with realistic glow in the dark cigarettes. Cheers!

    The audio for Paul Boland is quite low and muffled, making this episode difficult to listen to.

    Agreeing with Matthew. It was hard to understand Paul. It’s hard to understand the reasoning used by most Be Reasonable guests, but this time it was the audio that gave me trouble.

    A registered vet? I’m skeptical he’s even registered for First Aid. All he did was pandered David Icke. He has obviously never thinks about any of Ickie’s claims. He just lets Ickie do all his “thinking” for him.

    Paul Boland is a vet, presumably one needs to study biology to gain that qualification. How is it then that his understanding RNA-based vaccines is non-existent. Paul believe in virtually every conspiracy … it’s depressing .. where to even begin

    According to this web site:
    https://www.thewebinarvet.com/speaker/paul-boland

    “He lectures on Canine Reproduction to the fourth years Students at Liverpool University”

    I do hope he keeps his alternative facts to himself. If i were at Liverpool Uni and paying £9000 per term, i would demand a refund.

    Does the RCVS not have any standards (of which he is a member)?

    Well the Lancet disagree with him on origin.

    Hu et al linked to SARS in 2015

    Lau et al showed it was present in bats in 2020.

    How can the RCVS allow this guy to continue practicing? I would be furious if I had taken my to dog to him.

    Must disagree with the cancer stats. Just take a look at childhood leukemia rates, with 100 years ago over 95%of children dead from it, and now if you get treatment it’s under 5%

    Leaving aside all the conspiracy talk, did he really say that if I take my pets to him I’ll be paying for conventional treatment and then paying AGAIN for his woo? F that, vet fees are ridiculously high as it is.

    How is this person a veterinarian and believes these wacko conspiracy theories? Everything he claims can be debunked with a quick search of actual reputable resources. He WANTS to believe this nonsense.
