View as PDF

Public Citizen sent a letter to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requesting an investigation of the use of falsified scientific citations in the advertisement and promotion of an illegal heart-toxic drug for treatment of cancer by Utopia Wellness, a Florida-based medical center. The medical’s website materials misleadingly claim that cesium chloride is safe and effective for treating cancer but offers no evidence from well-controlled clinical tests to support its claims.

October 11, 2018, FTC response letter.
