heard of vitamin B17? Probably not.
It is found in nuts, berries, greens, cabbage, onions, tubers, and in abundance in the seeds of fruits such as apricot, peach, and cherry. There are a couple of reasons why you have never heard of vitamin B17-number 1: It is illegal to sell as a supplement in North America
The amygdala is the active vitamin B17 compound; its synthetic (manufactured) is calledlaetrile. Laetrile was used as an alternative cancer treatment until 1980 when it was banned by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This compound contains cyanide, which is a known poison, so the FDA made it illegal to sell as a dietary supplement.
B17 The controversy
In the 1970s before being banned, laetrile was a topic of interest at the Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Ralph Moss was the Assistant Director of Public Affairs during this time and has since become a vocal author and professor of alternative cancer therapies. In an interview, he talks about what he learned at Sloan Kettering:
“I went to Soon after work [at Sloan Kettering] I visited the Japanese scientist elderly, Kanematsu Sugiura, which surprised me when he told me he was working on Laetrile (B17). At the time it was the most controversial thing in cancer, reputation as a cure for cancer. We in Public Affairs were giving statements that laetrile was worthless, it was quackery, and that people should not abandon therapies tested. I was surprised that our most distinguished scientist would be bothering with something like this, and I said, ‘Why are you doing this if it does not work? “he picked up his lab books and showed me that, laetrile fact was dramatically effective in stopping the spread of cancer … we found this and yet in the public they told to issue statements to the exact opposite of what we were finding scientifically. “
Dr. Moss exposure generated controversy around laetrile and expanded to include the natural form of the tonsillar found in plants, vitamin B17. His position (after being fired from Sloan Kettering as a result of statements like these) is that the medical establishment was suppressing research on natural treatments for cancer.
Other researchers have reached similar, such as G. Edward Griffin-author, filmmaker conclusions, and advocate for natural cancer treatment. In his book world without cancer Dr. John Richardson, Griffin wrote:
“All Laetrile studies had been tarnished with the same kind of scientific ineptitude, bias and outright deception … Some of these studies have not concealed evidence of an anti-cancer effect but hastened to attribute this effect to other causes. Some were toxicity studies only, which means they were not trying to see if Laetrile was effective, but merely to determine how much of what was required to kill the patient. ” ( Ibid. )
Cyanide content of amygdalin as a cyanogenic glucoside nitriloside family of compounds soluble in water sugar found in plants. Science has studied and found that this substance inhibits the growth of cancer cells and causes cell apoptosis (death) in kidney cells, breast and prostate cancer. Cancer cells contain an enzyme called glucosidase three thousand times the level of a healthy cell.
When this enzyme comes into contact with nitriloside, a chemical reaction breaks nitriloside hydrogen cyanide and benzaldehyde. Cyanide kills the cell. A healthy cell does not contain enough glucosidase to free cyanide.
Essentially, tonsillar is toxic only to abnormal cells, leaving healthy intact.
We eat foods containing tonsillar all the time, so seemingly small amounts of cyanide are not harmful or drop dead after eating a handful of blueberries.
Bitter almonds are rich in amygdala. The trees that grow are illegal in the United States, despite the seeds (almonds of any variety are actually not nuts and seeds) can be used to extract essential oils. Sweet almonds (bitter almonds cousin ‘) also contain high amounts of tonsillar-that are illegal to be sold raw in the United States:
“In 2007, the USDA [United States Department of Agriculture] mandate to be pasteurized all grown almonds from the United States (with heating) or, for non-organic almonds, gassed with propylene oxide toxic gas (PPO), a probable carcinogen human. the almonds treated with PPO are banned in Canada and the European Union, but allows even encouraged by the ban in the US .. Do not be fooled if you’ve seen the American almonds labeled “raw”. the USDA allows producers and processors almond almonds to label as ‘premium’ although they have been pasteurized or gassed … pasteurization destroys enzymes and reduces valuable phytonutrients and vitamin E . “ [emphasis added]
seed with the highest content of B17 is apricot. Seeds are sold and eaten safely in other countries for its health benefits, not the least of them as a protector of cancer. It is quite easy to buy a lot of apricots, break open the graves, and eat the seeds. While an excess of this nutrient can tax the liver, which would have to eat fifty or sixty a day every day to have any negative effect.
If you decide to add apricot seeds to your diet as a cancer preventative or treatment, it is better to stock up now before apricot trees become illegal, too.
No. 2 reason why you have never heard of B17: kills cancer
Because vitamin B17 remains a source of controversy in the Western medical community as a treatment for cancer and the FDA has banned since very little money is put into future research. Traditional media have dismissed as quackery medicinal use.
Elsewhere in the book of Griffin, observes:
“I think it’s important that people understand that the government, in most cases, is not the result. That is the problem long as people think that the government is supposed to take care of them and protect them and that they can trust their politicians, as long as they think they are in serious trouble. and indeed, we are in serious trouble because of that kind of thinking. “
Food for thought.
