T2P MONTREAL (CP) The Ca- nadian Medical Association went on record Thursday with some of the strongest criticism yet of chiropractors. The association passed four main resolutions regarding "chiropractic and other forms of medical quackery." These called for: to prov- inces which currently licence chiropractors to re-evaluate the effectiveness of such licensing as a means of protecting the public. This resolution charged that there is no evidence of the scientific validity of chiroprac- tic therapy and practice and that it is "at best worthless and at worst morally dangerous." organizations to ed- ucate physicians about the "dangers of medical quackery" and re-affirm that it Is contrary WE'LL HELP YOU QUALIFY TO ATTEND SAIT ENROL NOW IN OUR PRE-CAREERS PROGRAM If you wish to enrol in regular Salt day programs but lack one or more of the educational prereqirsites, a new door of opportunity Is open to you through pre- paratory in the program of Mathematfcs-Phyiics Department.

Called in to give supporting evidence for the resolutions was Dr. Murray Katz of Montreal, one of a group of individuals who are forming a voluntary as- s o c i a t i o n called Committee Against Health Fraud. DOCTOR APPALLED Dr. Katz, a general practi- tioner, has been investigating chiropractic services for years and said he was appalled at the type of care that is being given without any scientific evi- dence. He was especially critical of the practice of chiropractors taking x-rays of their patients. He said this "dangerous prac- tice" even is supported by med- ical care insurance in our prov- inces. Only Quebec and New- foundland do not allow chiro- practors to practice. Chiropractors take a "head- to-toe" x-ray, which exposes an individual to more radiation than about 20 smaller x-rays taken by qualified radiologists, said. Often they x-ray young women without even testing for a pregnancy although such rays could damage (he unborn child. And although chiropractors often are supposed to practise only with spinal manipulation, (hey are handing out literature saying they can "cure" epi- lepsy, diabetes, gall bladder dis- eases and hydrocephalus, among other things, he said. All these conditions have no medi- cal scientific relationship to the spine or spinal manipulation.
