Overview

Cesium is a metal element similar to lithium, sodium, and potassium. Non-radioactive cesium supplementation is sometimes called "high pH therapy."

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.
