This information describes the common uses of CanCell®, how it works, and its possible side effects.
Cancell® has not been shown to treat or prevent cancer.
CanCell® (also called Entelev® or Cantron®) was developed by a chemist in the 1930s. Its exact ingredients are unknown, but it is thought to contain catechol (stabilizes collagen and is used in tanning and dyeing), nitric acid (an intermediate used in the manufacturing of fertilizers and explosives), sodium sulfite, potassium hydroxide (a caustic material), sulfuric acid (a corrosive liquid), crocinic acid, and various minerals and vitamins. This mixture of chemicals, the manufacturers claim, normalizes cellular metabolism and balances the vibrational frequency of cancer cells, causing them to die or return to a healthy state. Scientists from the National Cancer Institute reviewed these theories, tested CanCell® in laboratory studies on cancer cells, and concluded that CanCell® has no anticancer activity.
