How does Cesium work?
There isn't enough information to know how cesium might work. Some proponents say cesium affects the pH (acidity) of cancer cells, but there's no scientific research to support this claim.
Are there safety concerns?
High doses of cesium might be unsafe. There are reports of severe life-threatening low blood pressure and irregular heartbeat in some people who took high doses of cesium for several weeks. There isn't enough information to know if lower doses of cesium are safe. Some people who take cesium by mouth can also have nausea, diarrhea, and loss of appetite. Tingling of the lips, hands, and feet may also occur.
Do not take cesium if:
- You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
- You have an irregular heartbeat or heart arrhythmia.
