FDA Warns Five Sellers of Dangerous Cesium Salt Supplements
On October 9, the FDA issued warning letters to five companies for selling products containing cesium chloride. The FDA has previously warned consumers not to use dietary supplements containing cesium chloride or any other cesium salt. Consuming cesium salt has significant safety risks, including heart toxicity, cardiac arrhythmias, hypokalemia (low potassium), seizures, fainting, and death. Cesium salts are sometimes promoted as alternative treatments for cancer. However, they have not been shown to be safe or effective as a cancer treatment.
