>FDA goes after fraudulent cancer cures

>We were just talking about this.

The Washington Post reports

Neil Baker, a retired maker of truck canopies in Helena, Mont., fills about two orders a month for E-Mune through his company, Herbal Remission. It is made from bloodroot, a plant that contains sanguinarine, which has been studied for possible anti-tumor activity. He says one customer’s melanoma was cured.

“I really don’t know a whole lot about it. All I know is it works,” said Baker, 63. “As far as I’m concerned, humanity should have it. But if the FDA doesn’t like it, that’s okay with me, too.”

The FDA’s list of “fake cancer cures” is at http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/factsheets/fakecancercures.html.

  1. >Finally. It's a start… but I am not impressed. Posting a list of frauds on an obscure website isn't going to achieve much. To have any significent impact, they need to back up their polite requests with criminal prosecution.
