FDA sends reminder that unapproved drug treatment claims are illegal.

NaturalDoctor claims it has the pill to replace all pills, a dietary supplement that combines Vitamin C and Vitamin K3 in a 100:1 ratio (apparently that’s the perfect ratio?) to treat “a variety of malignancies” that include colon and breast cancer.

But don’t go clearing out that medicine drawer just yet.

The FDA recently sent a letter to NaturalDoctor warning the company that making such drug treatment claims are illegal without the agency’s approval — something NaturalDoctor does not have. In total, the FDA named eight products including the purported cancer cure-all whose labeling and/or online listings on naturaldoctor.com touted unapproved claims to cure, mitigate, treat or prevent disease. (A NaturalDoctor supplement said to mitigate the long-term effects of self-employment skirted scrutiny.)

The letter also cited numerous manufacturing violations including a failure to establish and follow rules related to cleanliness, packaging and labeling operations, and the review of consumer complaints.

All of which leads to TINA.org’s popular refrain: Be wary of supplements touting miracle health claims and always consult your health care provider before taking any supplement.
