Title

"Ignore Fake Advertisements"

Description

This poster warns audiences about quack doctors, treatments, and advertisements. It is part of the "Keeping Fit" poster series.

"'Ads' in newspapers, booklets and tin signs are put out by 'quacks' to get money from ignorant boys and men. Patent medicines and quick cures for syphilis and gonorrhea generally do more harm than good. Don't let 'quack' companies scare you by their talk about 'pimples,' 'vital losses,' etc. They are after your money. Don't worry. Lead an active, healthy life and forget about sex matters."
