Legitimate medical products must gain approval from the FDA who is in charge of making sure each product is safe and effective. Falsely labeled products often contain dangerous treatments that do more harm than help.

'Cancer' comes from the latin word 'carcinos' which means 'crab' Crabs have abnormal growths on their bodies, which is often what cancer is. The first treatments for cancer were oils from crabs which were then rubbed onto the cancer spot and red hot metal was then placed on it. The other was "sympathetic magic". It was believed that placing a live crab on the tumor would transfer the disease to the crab.
