The Food and Drug Administration also said that intravenous injections of such products would result in blood vessel inflammation, bubbles in blood vessels and potentially life-threatening allergic reactions.

The FDA has warned two Texas-based firms, DFWX and Frad 35 Inc., as they are illegally selling 35 % hydrogen peroxide products to treat AIDS, cancer, emphysema and other serious diseases.
