About this Item

460 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. MEDICINE. Examines the paradox that the irrational approach to the pursuit of health has expanded at a time when medical science has increased the effectiveness of its therapeutic procedures, when the educational level of the public is much higher, when more stringent laws have received more rigorous enforcement of by regulatory agencies. Discussing the difficulty of finding the legitimate limits of self-medication, which the laws have sought to make safe, Professor Young examines quackery and self-dosage against a broader background of social history, science, marketing, and government. Includes an Index. (Key Words: Quackery, Medical Science, Health, James Harvey Young, Self-Medication, United States Supreme Court, Rexford Tugwell, Food and Drug Administration).
