Fake Cancer 'Cure' Product Warnings

By Admin on June 18, 2008 9:11 AM

In a News Release issued on Tuesday, the FDA announced that it was sending Warning Letters to 23 U.S. companies and two foreign individuals involved in the sale of a variety of tablets, teas, tonics, and creams sold mainly on the Internet (See the complete list: 125 Fake Cancer 'Cures' Consumers Should Avoid).
