In an article headed, "Says Lying Is Best Asset of Doctor," a physician is credited with premising that disease is something real and formidable, and that a denial of this reality constitutes a lie. His readers are then instructed how to lie so persistently that one human mind thoroughly believing in the reality of disease will be able to force another human mind, also thoroughly believing in the reality of disease, to admit that it is not sick.
