Chiropractor ordered to stop using quack chiropractic device. The California Board of Chiropractic Examiners has cited David Manago, D.C., for using a Sensometer to diagnose and treat patients. The board concluded that this constituted gross and repeated negligence and ordered him to pay $500 and stop using the device. The Sensometer was originally called the Toftness Radiation Detector. It a hand-held instrument that supposedly focused low-level radiation emitted from the body that the chiropractor could detect while rubbing his fingers on the detection plate. Rubbing hard would produce "crackling" sounds that supposedly identified areas of "nerve interference" (subluxations) treatable by very-low-force spinal "adjustments." In the early 1980s, after a lengthy campaign, the FDA obtained court orders banning sale of the device in interstate commerce and ordering the sellers to notify all buyers to return them. However, a few chiropractors continued to use the device and articles promoting it occasionally appear in chiropractic publications. [Barrett S. The Toftness Radiation Detector is a bogus device.

Keep in  mind.. he's probably no longer a scientologist.
Dr Mango has not done a service in some years, according to his page at Truth About Scientology and he's not an IAS Sponsor either.

He's also on the list of peopleDidaffected Scientologists ( those who think badly about Scientology

Thanks, Mary. I was not aware.

You're welcome :) I didn't know either until you posted his name. I Just thought I would check, since so many people have left the cult in recent years.

His no longer being a scientologist does not excuse what he did. Sounds like he's still believing a bit of the fraudster L Ron Hubbard's All About Radiation

After all I've read of the government boards overlooking regulations it is good to see them doing something.
