On top of the five companies they have charged thus far, they have also reached settlements with six other companies.

The FTC is making a major push right now to do their best to attack these companies.

They also want to help educate consumers about these bogus cancer cures.

The five companies sued by the FTC include Alexander Heckman d/b/a Omega Supply, Native Essence Herb Company, Daniel Chapter One, Gemtronic Inc, and Mary T Spohn a/b/a Herbs for Cancer.

The FTC stated there is no scientific evidence that links these companies to products that can prevent, cure, or treat cancer in any way shape or form.

The companies sued target patients who have cancer, and are looking for alternative treatments.

These are herb treatments and such whic have a history of curing diseases, but without any scientific backing.

Experts fear people may try these cures instead of receiving proper effective cancer treatments.

The FTC has also set up a site to check out these possible bogus cancer cures at www.ftc.gov/curious
