Bogus Cancer Treatments
Bookmark and Share
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is cracking down on companies making unproven cancer treatment claims. Recently, the FDA issued warning letters to 14 companies that it says illegally sell products that fraudulently claim to prevent, diagnose, treat or cure cancer. The FDA calls it “cruel deception” in that these companies target desperate consumers. Dr. Timothy Moynihan, an oncologist at Mayo Clinic, will explain the FDA crackdown and discuss common cancer myths. Also on the program, Dr. Elizabeth Cozine, a primary care physician at Mayo Clinic, will cover primary care topics, including ear infections, HPV and the whooping cough vaccine for pregnant women. And Dr. Brian Carlsen, an orthopedic surgeon at Mayo Clinic, will share the story of reattaching the hand of a young accident victim.
