In this small brochure, physicians are urged to write their own prescriptions for their patients rather than to fall a victim to the medicine manufacturers' propaganda, as the patients have much more faith in a remedy prescribed and put up especially for their individual case than in one machine-made by the million. Modern medicine suffers, for example, from a "tablet epidemic." The belief in the mystical efficiency of medicine, which modern pharmacology has been doing its best to destroy, asserts itself even among the physicians who fall victims to propaganda and prescribe the latest proprietary, promoted with sufficient bombast, even though it is nothing more than a mixture of old, well known and more or less discredited ingredients.
