This book of Mr. Harding's covers much the same field as, and is a foil for, "100,000,000 Guinea Pigs" by Kallet and Schlink of Consumers' Research. The authors of both books are about as highly critical of the medical profession as they are of each other. Mr. Harding, in another place, has expressed the opinion that the American Medical Association is "not a scientific body, but a well-unionized trade guild determined to protect its own incompetent members and to increase the income of its supporters." While in his present book Mr. Harding is not quite so virulent against the American Medical Association, nevertheless this book, like "100,000,000 Guinea Pigs," details innumerable frauds, practically all of them of a medical character, and the material is based almost exclusively on the investigations made, paid for and published by the much dedamned American Medical Association!
