FDA Warns Companies to Stop Selling Fake Cancer Cures
Date:6/17/2008

lve products, touted to treat skin cancer, can be particularly hazardous, Levy said. "Black salve products essentially burn off layers of the skin and are supposed to also burn away skin cancer," he said. "But what we have seen is that it actually burns away healthy skin. There is documented evidence of black salve products destroying large parts of people's skin and the underlying tissue."

Levy also said the FDA is concerned that consumers will purchase these products instead of products that are proven to be safe and effective.

Elder said: "As a result of these warning letters, FDA expects prompt and complete corrective action. Firms that don't heed the warnings we have delivered, and other firms marketing similar unapproved products, may face further regulatory action from the agency."

According to the FDA, the fraudulent claims found on the products include:

  • "Treats all forms of cancer."
  • "Causes cancer cells to commit suicide!"
  • "80% more effective than the world's number one cancer drug."
  • "Skin cancers disappear."
  • "Target cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone."
  • "Shrinks malignant tumors."
  • "Avoid painful surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or other conventional treatments."

Companies that don't stop these violations can have their products seized or injunctions placed upon them and also are liable for criminal charges, according to the agency.
