This natural form of chemotherapy was (and still is) considered controversial. Well, the last time I checked, having cancer (in any form) is toxic in itself and causes death daily. The FDA then came out hard in its attack on Laetrile.
The only thing B17 is toxic to is cancer cells and a corrupt government. began using it “illegally” to treat patients at his clinic in San Francisco, and it was working remarkably better than orthodox treatments. The FDA considers Laetrile an unapproved form of treatment and ‘illegal’ for a practitioner to administer, therefore you cannot buy Laetrile in the US, though you can buy B17 / amygdalin in supplement form.
The actual seed is found beneath the hard pit of the apricot.
The way it actively destroys cancer cells is by the glucose ‘injecting’ itself into the cancer cell.
Then the cyanide and benzaldahyde from the glucose create a targeted poison that kills the cancer cell. However the team was later was forced to downplay the overall benefits of B-7 when held up against conventional cancer treatments.
Even if this is the case, it is no excuse to not be proactive and get an early start of ridding even the slightest possibility of getting cancer in any form.
As powerful as B17 is, there are also many other natural foods that have been shown to be helpful in warding off cancer.
