FDA Issues Warning: Stay Away From Deadly 'Cancer Cure' Supplements

2020-02-05 22:25:561 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

The Food and Drug Administration has issued a public health alert for dietary supplements containing cesium salts.
These products usually contain a specific formulation known as cesium chloride.
According to Gizmodo, the alert warns both customers to not take these products and doctors not to recommend them.
Side effects include potentially fatal cardiac arrhythmias, low potassium, seizures, fainting, and death.
The radioactive version of cesium is routinely used in medicine as part of radiation therapy for certain cancers.
But for decades, naturopaths and others in the alternative medicine world have promoted the non-radioactive version of these salts as a cancer treatment.
Cesium chloride has already been banned from traditional pharmacies and compounding pharmacies.
However, there are still well-trafficked places online, including Amazon, where retailers appear to sell cesium supplements.
