A 73-year-old Bonita man was arrested today and charged with posing as a doctor and selling phony, possibly dangerous, cancer cures.

Kurt Walter Donsbach was arrested during his Internet radio show.

One patient allegedly paid thousands of dollars for steroids supplied by Donsbach, leading to severe bone-density loss.

Donsbach is being held in San Diego County jail on $1.5-million bail.

“This defendant preyed on vulnerable patients,” said Dist. Atty. Bonnie Dumanis.
