    The Food and Drug Administration released letters online to dozens of companies that claim to create drugs that can cure and/or prevent cancer to remove those products that can be harmful in some cases.

    The Food and Drug Administration posted warning letters sent to 14 manufacturers, telling them to remove their fraudulent cancer curing products on the internet, NBC News reported. 

    The FDA said most of the products are sold websites and social media sites can be harmful and waste money. 

    The products that are not tested nor approved by the FDA come in all shapes and sizes, from creams to teas. Some contain ingredients that can be risky or interact dangerously with prescription drugs.
