Those who promote "high pH therapy" claim cesium affects the pH (acidity) of cancer cells. But there is no evidence to support this claim. In its natural state, cesium isn't radioactive, but it can be made radioactive in a lab.
People use non-radioactive cesium for cancer, but there is no good scientific evidence to support this use. It is also not safe. The US FDA warns against the use of cesium as medicine due to concerns for severe heart toxicity and death.

Special Precautions and Warnings
Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There isn't enough reliable information to know if cesium is safe to use when pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Medications that can cause an irregular heartbeat (QT interval-prolonging drugs) interacts with CESIUM

Some medications for inflammation can decrease potassium in the body. Cesium might also decrease potassium levels in the body. Taking cesium along with these medications might decrease potassium in the body too much.
Water pills (Diuretic drugs) interacts with CESIUM
Cesium can decrease potassium levels. "Water pills" can also decrease potassium levels. Taking cesium along with "water pills" might make potassium levels drop too low.
