Try "quack," for the sake of accuracy.
In fact, Baker got his start in cancer quackery in Muscatine, Iowa in the late 1920's, using the agency of his high-powered radio station KTNT ("Know The Nakie Tooth," as per Tommy Pickles) to promote the Baker Sanitarium (actually operated from two Muscatine locations), along with the Tangey Association.
In 1931, the then-Federal Radio Commission forced KTNT off the air for excessive self-promotion and general lack of candor. Whereupon Baker moved his show to Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, and reestablished his radio station under the call XENT (not to mention a cancer-cure clinic notorious for proclaiming on his brochures "phone 666 upon arrival in Laredo," prompting a number of complaints to the American Medical Association against Baker as invoked Rev. 13:18, where 666 is given as the Antichrist's symbol, for medical quackery).
XENT would itself be forced off the air in 1940 by Mexican authorities.
(Incidentally, it was Baker that was indirectly responsible for Harry Hoxey's entry into the cancer-quackery game.)
