Buyer Beware - Cancer Treatment Fraud

While investigating cancer treatments, you might come across claims by a person or company that say they can cure or treat cancer.  Currently, the FDA has 187 fake cancer "cures" listed on their website - and that is only the ones they have identified.

While, complimentary and alternative medicine might be an option for your situation, you should discuss any treatment options with your doctor.

Buyer Beware
The most important thing to find out when investigating a new treatment is if the product is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  Treatments that have been approved by the FDA have gone through testing and are considered to be safe and effective.

The FDA and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) offer these tips to identify fraudulent products:

  • Claims that the product cures any type of cancer
  • Personal testimonies from patients
  • Money back guarantees
  • Advertisement is filled with jargon in an attempt to "impress" you
  • Ad states that it is a "natural" remedy
  • Supplies are limited

The FDA and FTC also warn to watch out for phrases like:
  • Scientific breakthrough
  • Miracle cure
  • Secret ingredient(s)
  • Ancient remedy
Any treatments should be discussed with your doctor.  Not only can these products be harmful to your health, they can also react dangerously with your current treatments.

As a sign of gratitude for how my wife was saved from CANCER, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
My wife suffered cancer in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because she was my all and the symptoms were terrible, she always complain of abnormal vaginal bleeding, and she always have pain during sexual intercourse. . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure her. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to cancer . I never imagined cancer. has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my wife will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my wife used it and in one months time she was fully okay even up till this moment she is so full of life. cancer. has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098675@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony.
