Chas. D. Dixon, M. D. 11
Their existence is a menace to public health, and a disgrace
to modern civilization.
From a medical standpoint and from one who knows, the
most disgraceful and disheartening part of it all is the fact
that men with the right to sign M. D. after their names will
stoop so low as to lend their names to such devilish frauds.
For without the co-operation of physicians, such cruel fakes
as these "consumption cures" would be robbed of two-thirds
of their potentiality for harm. These institutions and
fakers will take a victim and continue to treat him and ex-
tract the dollars from his pockets, promising all the time
that in a few days he will be almost sound and well, up until
a few hours of dissolution.
Here’s what’s next.
