Excerpt from The Wisconsin Medical Recorder, Vol. 18: A Monthly Journal of Medicine and Surgery for the Whole Profession; January, 1915
After they have swiped in all the Doctors they can, they then advertise it through the lay press, and manage some way to have a number of Physicians' names attached to their advertisements, intended for the public. The Fried man Turtle soup Fad, came like a tidal wave, threatening to deluge the whole country, and no doubt but that some people made plenty of money out of it, while on its crest. The advertising of the wonderful cures was so vivid, that one could almost see Turtles hanging on trees as a token of good health and prosperity. It is high time that the medical profession comes down from its aeroplane of Fads and Fancies, to the terra firma of common sense.
