[MOL] RE: Information: Cancell & Essiac Tea.

Here is some information I took off the Quack page that I thought might be
interesting to some of you.
Love and prayers to you and yours,


CanCell, originally called Entelev, is a liquid claimed to cure cancer by
"lowering the voltage of the cell structure by about 20%," causing cancer
cells to "digest" and be replaced with normal cells. Accompanying directions
have warned that bottles of CanCell should not be allowed to touch each other
or be placed near any electrical appliance or outlet. CanCell has also been
promoted for the treatment of AIDS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple
sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, "extreme cases of emphysema and diabetes," and
several other diseases. In 1989, the FDA reported that CanCell contained
inositol, nitric acid, sodium sulfite, potassium hydroxide, sulfuric acid, and
catechol. Subsequently, its promoters claimed to be modifying the formulation
to make it more effective. They have also claimed that CanCell can't be
analyzed because it varies with atmospheric vibrations and keeps changing its
energy. Laboratory tests conducted between 1978 and 1991 by the NCI found no
evidence that CanCell was effective against cancer. The FDA has obtained an
injunction forbidding its distribution to patients.


Essiac is an herbal remedy that was prescribed and promoted for about 50 years
by Rene M. Caisse, a Canadian nurse who died in 1978. Shortly before her
death, she turned over the formula and manufacturing rights to the Resperin
Corporation, a Canadian company that has provided it to patients under a
special agreement with Canadian health officials. Several reports state that
the formula contains burdock, Indian rhubarb, sorrel, and slippery elm, but
there may be additional ingredients. Essiac tea claimed to be Caisse's
original formulation is also marketed in the United States. Several animal
tests using samples of Essiac have shown no antitumor activity. Nor did a
review of data on 86 patients performed by the Canadian federal health
department during the early 1980s.
