The title must have been influenced by Morris Fishbein of the AMA's Fads and Quackery in Healing (). Gardner seems to have compiled this book by browsing the New York Public Library, presumably briefly noting down, in time for his deadline, small extracts from books that appeared particularly silly. Quackwatch is now an international network of people who are concerned about health-related frauds, myths, fads, fallacies, and misconduct. Its primary focus is on quackery -related information that is difficult or impossible to get elsewhere.

Quackery is short for quacksalver and probably has nothing to do with the sound made by ducks. Quacksalver derives from two Middle Dutch terms and seems to mean healing with unguents. However, quacken means to boast, so a kwakzalver might be a healer who boasts, in which case medical quackery would be an oxymoron.   Book Summary: The title of this book is Quackery and it was written by Lydia Kang, Nate Pedersen. This particular edition is in a Hardcover format. This books publish date is and it has a suggested retail price of $ It was published by Workman Publishing Company and has a total of pages in the Edition: 1st.

Significant numbers of well-trained physicians have strayed from science into "fad diagnoses" and unproven treatments that lack a rational basis." "The Health Robbers, featuring more than twenty highly respected authorities, explains the dangers of quack medicine, "alternative" cancer remedies, health fads, and "miracle diets.". Morris Fishbein’s most popular book is Dr. Fishbein's Popular Illustrated Medical Encyclopedia. Fads and Quackery in Healing by. An Encyclopedia of Cultism and Quackery in These United States, with Essays on the Cult of Beauty.
