Medical Quacks Are Fooling You In Atomic Age By PATTI SIMMONS WASHINGTON (NBA)—A phony gadget racket is operating in this country today, despite the vigilance of the U. S. government. Those guilty are doing more than just preying on the American pocketbook, the Food and Drug Administration points out. The danger, it charges, is that people who are really sick, say with cancer, will turn to quack medical devices rather than to doctors. By the time they realize their mistake it may be too late. True, the gadget come-on is ages- old. But the magic words of the atomic age, declares FDA, has handed modern fakers a new advantage for cashing in on the gullibility of the public. Playing With Atoms For some time the administration has been seizing devices that are claimed to give off atomic waves. One even claimed to radiate "a force unknown to science" and was said to be able to cure any disease afflicting mankind. Today, FDA estimates that Americans spend a half - billion dollars annually on food additives, "medicines" and therapeutic contrivances they don't need. FDA's last annual report, for the fiscal year 1952, declared that 25 device seizures had been made because of false and misleading claims. These ranged from "cosmic ray" lockets which sold for $250 to $750 depending on size, to complicated colonic irrigators. The $1600 colonic irrlgator was being sold to chiropractors, says FDA, with literature claiming usefulness for a number of diseases Including asthma and diabetes. Makes 'Thermal Water' Recently, the government seized something called an "Atomotrone. 1 Light is rigged up to shine through colored glass onto a jug of water. What results was called "Thermal water" and "Electric water," explains FDA. One was recommended for soft nails or even no nails. The other, the "Atomotrone" people claimed, was good for about 100 diseases and ailments, including nails again. This time, brittle ones. An administration official says that he thinks women fall oftener for phony devices aimed at slenderizing and beautifying while men are more apt to try to doctor themselves. The inventor of the Zerrett Applicator, a plastic dumbbell-like contraption, was sentenced to Jail in 1950. Z-Rays Expand Atoms To cure disease, said tne directions, a patient had only to sit, vithout crossing his knees, holding the dumbbell, one knob in each hand, tor 30 minutes at a time.,This $50 "toy" was loaded with "Zerret Water" which was said to give forth "Z-rays." The maker claimed his treatment would "expand all the atoms of one's being." Chemists testified the water had the composition of tap water. Leading atomic scientists declared the device was not radio-active and brought a Geiger counter to the court room to prove it. Another phony in FDA'S "sucker collection" looks like a flashlight with a roller on the end. With its at- tachments the Electreat was said to help heart attack, paralysis, or Just dandruff. Following government action the manufacturer was fined $1000. Promoter Has Disease. Although the promoter of the Slnuothermic Device recommended it for advanced cases of arthritis deformans, he himself was so crippled by this disease he couldn't raise his arm to take the oath when he testified In court. For this same reason he couldn't occupy the witness chair but made his statements from a wheel chair. The government finally won. Several years ago, promoters of the Vrilium Tube claimed their "Magic Spike" had radioactive powers that would cure disease when It was worn on the body. The two- Inch piece of brass tube contained less than one penny's worth of barium chloride and had no medical value. It sold for $306, sales tax included. At this trial a pathetic witness described the death of his diabetic son FINANCE Your New Car with » STATE BANK AUTO LOAN LOANS - Low Bank Rates Set the Dial and You Get CONTROLLED HEAT Every Time $24 95 Has the marvelous FRY-GUIDE and HEAT CONTROL DIAL right in the handle.

Only slight damage was done Monday morning to a garage at the home of Mrs. Hiram Rucker. Firemen extinguished a blaze in the garage at 11 a.m. Hot ashes were blamed for the fire. who abandoned Insulin and pinned his faith on the "Magic Spike/' The government's hokus-pokus list also Includes a "radio-active" pillow and a "sleep recording" by a hypnotist. One explanation for all this human gullibility, FDA believes, Is that despite advances In education and medical science there are millions who are no better informed about health fundamentals than if they had lived a hundred or a thousand years ago. But it isn't true that only uneducated, backwoods people fall for gadget cures. A proof of this was FDA's action against Chiropractor Ruth B. Drown, who claimed that her machines could "tune in" the organs of the body and heal them by remote control. All she needed was a single drop of the patient's blood, or two drops If he couldn't be there in person. Among the witnesses for Dr. Drown was none other than the president of the Los Angeles City Board of Education. Los Angeles newspapers demanded her resignation, and got It. At the trial the government had a key case history. It was that of a woman treated for cancer by the Drown radio Instrument until it was too late for successful surgery.
