The US Federal Trade Commission is taking a swing at companies that promote cancer cures online, reports the Los Angeles Times. The director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection, Lydia Parnes, says they will be taking action against 11 companies. "We found all of these claims to be nothing short of breathtaking, and not in a good way," she says. One company, Omega Supply, allegedly sold hydrazine sulfate, a carcinogen, and another, Herbs for Cancer, allegedly sold different types of tea as cancer cures. FDA also said they may take a look at the companies.
