MEDICAL QUACKERY - This
story was told at a National Con
gress on Medical Quackery con
ducted in Washington by the
American Medical Association
and the U. S. Food and Drug
Administration. From reports at
the meeting by medical experts,
here are some types of quackery
to guard against.
Unneeded vitamins and ’health
foods” cost 10 million people at
least 500 million dollars a year,
the experts report. The fact is,
they say, that an adequate diet
provides all the nutrients needed
by a normal person.
Arthritis “remedies” cost 5
million victims about 250 million
dollars a year. Many of them
are harmless but victims who
rely on them may delay getting
medical treatment and suffer
needless crippling effects.
Reducing drugs and devices
cost victims 100 million dollars
a year. Say the medical experts;
The only healthy way to reduce
is to eat less.
Devices. Millions more are
wasted by people on mechanical
and electrical contraptions—to
buy them or pay quacks who use
the. Some of the dlvlces are
merely worthless, some can
cause harm. The greatest harm
is causing delay in getting med
ical attention until it’s too late.
Signs of a fake. The AM A
offers some advice on how to
spot a quack who treats patients,
AMA says to beware if he uses
a “secret" machine or formula
If he guarantees a quick cure,
if he uses case histories or
testimonials to promote his cure,
if he clamors for recognition, if
he contends that medical men are
persecuting him or afraid of
his competition, or if he tells
you that surgery or Xrays or
drugs will do you more harm
than good.
