Vitamin B17 isn’t classified as a vitamin. It has many other names, but we all call it “laetrile” or “amygdalin.” Laetrile comes for the Latin words for the stereochemistry of the molecule, laevarotatory, and mandelonitrile, or the chemical identity.
Glucose, benzaldehyde and hydrogen cyanide are the three main components in laetrile. Cyanide may sound scary, but apricot kernels contain tiny amount of it. You need to swallow at least 65 apricot kernels in a day for it to become dangerous to your health. Cyanide is dangerous when used in large amounts. But, when used in tiny amounts and combined with other compounds, it’s safe.
Vitamin B17 and cancer
Alternative cancer doctors treat their patients with laetrile. However, the FDA bans the use of vitamin B17. Doctors can’t prescribe or treat their patients with laetrile.
Sloan Kettering was the leading cancer research center in the 1970s. Dr. Kanematsu Sugiura found that laetrile inhibits the growth of malignant lung tumors in lab mice. But, the Board of Directors at Sloan Kettering thought that the new findings would shrink profits, and didn’t support the proof. Treatments that are not patented can’t bring money.
The media played a major role here, and released a story in which cyanide in apricot kernels and apple seeds is dangerous. But, it’s a fact that cyanide kills cancer cells, and its content in kernels is too low.
Laetrile and cancer treatments
Healthy cells contain rhodanese, and enzyme that’s not found in cancer cells. Cancer cells have beta-glucosidase. Rhodanese has the ability to neutralize benzaldehyde and hydrogen cyanide in B17. It turns these into a useful compounds, and the body can use it.
Beta-glucosidase releases benzaldehyde and cyanide from laetrile, and targets cancer cells.
Laetrile also helps the body synthesize more vitamin B12. Statistics shows that many Americans lack this vitamin. When combined with high doses of vitamin C, the nutrients create a huge synergistic power
Plant-based diet is suggested by nutritionists, and your body will get enough vitamins and minerals. Laetrile needs the help of many nutrients to work efficiently. Multi-vitamin supplements will “soothe” the deficiencies.
Laetrile is efficient, but it shouldn’t be considered as a primary cancer treatment.
The right doses can do wonders, and laetrile deserves more attention. It’s contained in the seeds/kernels of apricot, plum, peach, cherry, nectarine, avocado, apple, pear, quince, bitter almonds, macadamia nuts, etc. apricot kernels are one of the richest sources of laetrile.
Experts suggest that patients eat 24-40 kernels throughout the day. Patients in remission should use at least 16 kernels. Some people use an apricot kernel for every 10 pounds of body weight. Increase the number of kernels gradually. Take one kernel, and wait for an hour. If you notice anything strange, you’re probably eating your kernels too fast. Eating too many kernels may have a fatal income. Find what works best for you.
We give you a few stories of individuals who used apricot kernels to treat their condition.
No-surgery solution for uterus and lymph node removal
“I had scheduled surgery for uterus removal and lymph nodes around d/t cervical invasive cancer. I refused surgery, I refused CT-scan. I ordered Apricot Seeds, dry Apricots, high dose vitamin C IV administered by my friend RN. And today, 10 months later I got my Pap smear, result is clear. Nature has everything done for us. I’m 40. Now I will plan for one more kid.”
Cure for a rare cancer of lymph nodes
“I ordered this product for my brother. He has a rare cancer. He was told that there were some large lymph nodes. Doctor wanted him to come in to get a better look at what was going on before they did chemo. He had two weeks with the apricot seed. He ground 10 per day in his shake. When he went back for that closer look they saw nothing? Still it’s good to research before taking.”
“I grew up eating these seeds. Never got sick from it. If you ate 5 all at once, you may feel a numbing effect in your mouth, which goes away in seconds after you wash it down with water. I have had up to 20 in a day, and haven’t seen any negative effects, but you need to work your way up slowly. Don’t eat all at once. I feel healthier when I take these seeds.”
Treated 4.2 pre-cancerous pancreatic cyst of 20 years
“While I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT suggest anything for YOU and YOUR body, I took 100 of these (50 twice per day, I weigh 320 lbs.) for 14 days and they painlessly removed a 4.2 cm pre-cancerous pancreatic cyst I carried for twenty years, with ZERO side effects (FOR ME AT LEAST). I eat 30 per day every morning for continued health and maintenance. My other option was a (approx.) $80,000 life threatening, debilitating unbelievably painful and most invasive Whipple surgery. I suppose one could call these things “God’s little miracles”. They certainly were for me anyway!!!”
Removed oral bump
“I was taking this just to see what would happen. I had this bump on the corner of my mouth that appeared last spring. At first i thought it was maybe something i could pop, but it was as solid as the rest of my body. I used clay and that didn’t work. I gave up and forgot about it. I would take just 3 of these kernels a day and see if I noticed or felt anything in general. After about a month of taking this.
That bump became inflamed, sore and swollen, and the next day fell off just like a wart would. Now I wonder maybe it was more than just a bump!”
