As most of our regular customers know, Alpha Omega Labs kept some administrative functions in Nassau, Bahamas; and the balance of its operation in Lake Charles, Louisiana, up until it was raided by U.S. Government authorities on September 17, 2003.
AO shipped product both to end users and distributors around the world. During 2002-2003, AO used RisingSun Health, a company in Montana, run by an aspiring politico named Toby McAdams, to handle Alpha Omega shipments within the U.S.
The relationship soured in the summer of 2003 because of payables in arrears with McAdams' operation that topped $9,000 (of which $6,000 is still owed to AO).
On the surface of things, this is mindless gossip and shouldn't pertain to any of our customers. What DOES pertain to our customers, however, is the illegal use of our trademark and the deliberate adulteration and mislabelling of the product.
Mr. McAdams has been bragging that the FDA has assisted him in disposing of AO in the U.S. and "approves" of his Cansema. We have serious doubts as to the truthfulness of this statement -- however, if true, it represents a level of deceitfulness in dealing with the public that exceeds anything even WE have seen on the part of this unscrupulous agency.
We received the above product from an unhappy customer in Tennessee who wanted us to evaluate it. The following evaluation is organoleptic (there was no time to do analytical chemical analysis) by two of our most experienced herbalists, including Greg Caton himself. Here is their (and our) joint statement:
"By any standard that the FDA has ever set, RisingSun Health's product is both "mislabelled" and "misbranded" -- indeed, to such an extreme degree that is cannot be anything but deliberate. Small items may have been perhaps an oversight: the lack of a net weight, the use of the word "dosage" instead of "instruction" for something that is not supposed to be an "unapproved drug." These are triffling matters -- again, perhaps an oversight.
"What is far more serious is the contents of the product is not remotely the same as the "ingredient declaration" on the product itself. The declaration is an exact duplication of Alpha Omega's -- along with nearly all the instructions and related support documentation on the risingsunhealth.com web site. See our Cansema FAQ, question 200.
"He just copied and pasted our declaration.
"Even that isn't an issue.
"The problem is that the product does not contain zinc chloride. It's on the label, but not in the product. The product says it contains NDGA. It contains none. It says it contains bloodroot. It contains none. It says it contains galangal. It contains none. The presence of graviola leaf or bitter melon is debatable but cannot be readily determined organoleptically.
"The product D-O-E-S contain other ingredients that are N-O-T on the label. For instance, the product has a strong rancid, corn oil smell. The consistency of the product and our experience shows that the base is a non-protected, non-hydrogenated vegetable oil of some kind. The rancidity from the oil is the dominant olfactory note -- drowning out the other herbals in the product. Notes of yarrow and at least one member of the mint family (Lamiaceae) are probably used, but the resulting formula is not even close to any escharotic formulation that has ever been created going back to Paracelsus in the 1500's or even Hildegard of Bingen in the 1100's. It has no astringent quality; contains no emetic herbals; there are no halides or other caustic metal salts present; and the product does nothing when applied to cancerous tissue. Moreover, it does not have the consistency or even color of Cansema -- minor properties, to be sure, but still clearly indicative of the fact that even the ATTEMPT to mimic the Cansema formula was not done in earnest.
"The product is a fraud upon the public and the deliberate attempt to make money off the good name of 'Cansema.' If the FDA is complicit, as McAdams is indicating, it would represent a deliberate application of 'Gresham's Law' to allow the sale of a misbranded, mislabelled product with the intent of discrediting the name of an effective product -- (driving out the good by encouraging the bad).
"We hope this is not the case. But regardless -- the product we have examined and which is pictured above is a purely fraudulent product."

"The RisingSun customer who gave us this product says he called Toby McAdams and asked for a refund.
"He was promptly refused.
