Answers on Vit B 17 therapy
Q1.How long does it take for the cancer to die out after consuming raw apricot seeds? The cancer cells start dying out immediately after taking the apricot kernels. With apricot seeds alone it is a slow process, because the apricot seed only contains about 2 to 3% laetrile. For example: • Bone cancer, it takes a little longer for the laetrile to absorb deep into the body. • Skin cancer reacts the quickest, within one week a notable difference is seen and in many cases complete tumor regression is achieved in less then three weeks. • Carcinomas can take a few months to shrink. • Cervical cancer has been noted to completely regress in less then three weeks.
Q2.Can I consume apricot seeds if I still decide to undergo chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy? Absolutely, we recommend even more if you are already committed to standard cancer treatment procedures. If you are about to have an operation where the cancer cells are going to be disturbed, it is imperative that you take the apricot seeds to kill any of the free cells. Some benefits from eating raw apricot seeds: • Lowers blood pressure • Strengthens the arteries • Targets the cancer cells
Q3.How many raw apricot seeds can I consume? First, the apricot seeds must be chewed and kept in the mouth for as long as it takes for them to practically liquefy. One or two apricot seeds per hour are what should be eaten when you have cancer. The best results have come when a person eats 3-5 apricot seeds per waking hour, I.e approx 50 per day. If you find that you are getting nauseous, just cut the apricot seeds in half. Slowly building up to the required dose. It is also a good idea to have a little food in the stomach just before you consume the apricot seeds. Our opinion is to eat the apricot seeds for the rest of your life like we do and tens of thousands of others around the world. Cancer prevention is 5 – 10 per day
Q4.Why don't medical doctors recommend apricot seeds? Doctors are taught from the beginning that Laetrile is not effective. On their own they are not allowed to use it, and can only refer to their various medical books which hold the two false studies on Laetrile. If a doctor does use laetrile, he risks losing his license and even imprisonment. After attending years of medical school, internship, and finally working in a hospital, most doctors only want to hear of the treatments that they're allowed to administer, even if they are not successful. Only researchers can know the truth, those that seek knowledge. Start with Mr. Griffin's legendary book, "World Without Cancer". Or Phillip Day's “ Cancer why we're still dying to know the truth” These books a few that tell the true story of laetrile, and will guide you in further research that proves the simple answers to cancer treatment and prevention.
Q5.If I roasted the apricot seeds will it impair the laetrile? No, Roasting does not impair the B17, but it does destroy the unlocking enzyme. By roasting you lose the benefits from the chemical activity to the enzymes in the mouth, stomach, and intestines.
Q6.How much laetrile does a average apricot seed contain, on the average? In the USA about 4-5mg.
Q7.Do raw apricot seeds need any type of refrigeration? Refrigeration is NOT required, but the freshness and potency of the apricot seeds will be extended 2-3 months, if they are kept in the refrigerator. PLEASE DO NOT FREEZE THE SEEDS.Back To Top
Q8.The apricot seeds are bitter to eat - is there another way to consume them other than chewing them? Yes, you can grind them up and put the powder on a salad, in a shake or smoothie drink. Also there is a way to grind them and put them in capsule form that the provider we recommend has. Then you just take them like any other vitamin or supplement you currently might be taking.
Q9.Is there an expiration date on raw apricot seeds? No!
Q10.How big are the raw apricot seeds? About the size of a normal almond.
Q11.Do apricot seeds go bad or rancid after a certain period of time? Not really. But we suggest that you place your raw apricot seeds in the refrigerator in the meat drawer. Only remove from the plastic bag what you intend to eat that day. They should keep their full potency for at least 8 months. Un-refrigerated they will stay good for about 6 months.
Q12.Should I consume apricot seeds with food or without food? Normally with food, or just prior to having a meal.
Q13.Can I give raw apricot seeds to my pet for cancer prevention or treatment? Yes, grind them up first. Then consider the size of the pet. in relation to a human and adjust the dosage accordingly. We have numerous testimonials on this website stating that apricot seeds cured their pets cancer and there veterinarians were shocked.
Q14.If I grind my apricot seeds and then put them in capsules, how many capsules will I need for my daily ration of 7 apricot seeds? You can figure about one capsule per apricot seed.
Q15.Is B17 (laetrile) or apricot seeds toxic to the body? Technically, every food on the planet earth is toxic. However, when a person uses the term "toxic" it generally means the substance is poisonous when taken in low doses. With this definition, laetrile or raw apricot seeds are not toxic, even when taken in high doses. This is just another urban myth the medical establishment has conjured up to scare you from seeking the truth and using all natural and inexpensive cancer treatment methods. Aspirin is actually 20 times more toxic than the equivalent amount of B17. But even with aspirin, if an individual consumes a massive amount of the product, serious health complications may result. When in doubt take the smallest amount possible and consult a natural medical doctor as to exactly how much you should be consuming.
Q16.Can I eat apricot seeds and take B17 tablets at the same time? Yes, In fact it is suggested as the raw apricot seed has vitamins and enzymes that the pure B17 tablet does not contain.
Q17.If I consume raw apricot seeds, will they reverse the cancer I have? It depends on the stage of cancer you’re in and what type of cancer you have. Apricot seeds only contain 3-5mg of B17 (laetrile). Dr. Neilson says that this is just not enough B17 to have a beneficial effect on serious stage 4 or higher cancer cases.
Q18.Can I prevent myself from getting cancer if I consume raw apricot seeds? We cannot say that by eating raw apricot seeds you will never get cancer. There is no 100% guarantee in just about anything in this world, wouldn’t you agree? We can say that by eating raw apricot seeds you drastically reduce your odds of ever being diagnosed with cancer during your lifetime. Why do we say this? In the remote recesses of the Himalaya Mountains, between West Pakistan, India and China, there is a tiny kingdom called Hunza. These people are known world over for their amazing longevity and good health. It is not uncommon for Hunzakuts to live beyond the age of 100, and some even to 120, or more. Visiting medical teams from the around the world report that there has NEVER been a case of cancer of ANY form in Hunza. It is interesting to note that the average Hunza diet contains over two hundred times more nitriloside than the average American diet. In fact, in that land where there is no such thing as money; a man's wealth is measured by the number of apricot trees he owns. The prince happily confirmed and then described how it was not uncommon to eat 30 to 50 apricot seeds as an after lunch snack. These often account for an excess of 75,000 International Units of Vitamin A per day, as well as over 150mg of vitamin B17. The women of Hunza are also renowned for their strikingly smooth skin even into advanced ages. Generally, their faces appear 15 to 20 years younger than their counterparts in other areas of the world. They claim that their beauty secret is merely the apricot oil which they apply to their skins almost daily. It is important to know that when the Hunzakuts leave their secluded land and adopt the diets of other countries, they soon succumb to the same diseases and infirmities including cancer, as the rest of the world. Now we are not suggesting or recommending that you consume 30-50 apricot seeds a day. We only provide the above information as an example of a culture that has kept itself free of ALL forms of cancer, which in part is due to the consumption of raw apricot seeds. It seems also by this example that you should consider eating raw apricot seeds daily for lifelong cancer prevention. In the book, "World Without Cancer" it suggests that you consume 7 apricot seeds a day for cancer prevention measures.
Q19.How did Dr. Ernst T. Krebs, Jr. discover that B17 and/or Laetrile could cure or prevent cancer? By 1952, Dr. Ernst T. Krebs, Jr., a biochemist in San Francisco, had advanced the theory that cancer, like scurvy and pellagra, is not caused by some kind of mysterious bacterium, virus, or toxin. But merely a deficiency disease, aggravated by the lack of essential food compounds in modern man's diet. It is particularly prevalent in raw apricot seeds
Q20.How does cancer and other diseases compare in modern man to back in the primitive man days? All the diseases known to modern man are unknown in primitive societies, including all forms of cancer! Why? Because of all the chemicals and additives we pollute and corrupt our body with on a daily basis now.
Q21.Don't all foods that we buy have the vitamins put back? I see "enriched" on all the labels, doesn't this mean that the food contains all the vitamins we need to be healthy? No, These are not the same as the original. As the June 1971 Journal of the American Geriatric Society reported: "Vitamins removed from food and returned as "enrichment" are not a safe substitute, as witnessed by the study in which Roger J. Williams, PH.D., reported that rats feed enriched bread died or were severely stunted due to malnutrition...." Even senility has been proven to be caused by a deficiency of vitamins B and vitamin C.
Q22.What is a trophoblast? The layer of extra embryonic ectoderm that nourishes the embryo or develops into fetal membranes with nutritive functions.
Q23.Who developed the trophoblastic thesis of cancer? Professor John Beard suspected that there was a nutritional factor in addition to the enzyme factor. In 1952 this "extrinsic" factor was discovered by Dr. Ernst T. Krebs, Jr., and his famous father of the same name.
Q24.What are the qualifications of Dr. Ernst T. Krebs, Jr.? He completed three years of anatomy and medicine at Hahnemann Medical College in Philadelphia. Then he pursued his undergraduate work at the University of Illinois between 1938-1941. Specializing in bacteriology, he received his Bachelor's Degree at the University of Illinois in 1942. He did graduate work at the University of California from 1943-1945 and later at the University of Mississippi, researching mostly in pharmacology. He is the author of many scientific papers including "The Unitarian or Trophoblastic Thesis of Cancer", and "The Nitrilosides in Plants and Animals". He was the science director of John Beard Memorial Foundation.
Q25.How did Dr. Krebs, Jr. determine that B17 (Laetrile) is NOT toxic to humans? There was only one way to do that, of course. So he rolled up his sleeve and injected into his own bloodstream. Just as predicted, there were absolutely no harmful or distressing side effects.
Q26.What is B17 composed of? The molecule contains two unit of glucose (sugar), one of benzaldehyde, and one of cyanide, all tightly locked together within it.
Q27.This "locking" thing. Is there any other compound like this? YES, Chlorine gas is also known to be deadly. But when the chlorine is chemically bound (locked) together with sodium forming sodium chloride, it is a relatively harmless compound known as common "table salt".
Q28.How then does B17 work to kill cancer cells? There is only one substance that can unlock the B17 molecule and release the cyanide. That substance is an enzyme called "beta-glycosidase", which is called the "unlocking enzyme". When B17 comes in contact with this enzyme in the presence of water, not only is the cyanide released, but also the benzaldehyde, which is highly toxic by itself. In fact, these two working together are at least a hundred times more poisonous than either of them separately; a phenomenon know in biochemistry as synergism. Fortunately, the "unlocking enzyme" is not found to any dangerous degree anywhere in the body "except at the cancer cell", where it always is present in great quantity, sometimes at levels in excess of one hundred times that of the surrounding normal cells. The result is that the Vitamin B17 is unlocked at the cancer cell, releases its poisons to the cancer cell and ONLY TO THE CANCER CELL.
Q29.Have medical doctors used Laetrile on their cancer patients? Yes, there have been at least twenty-six published medical papers written by well-known physicians who have used Laetrile experimentally in the treatment of their own cancer patients, and who have concluded that Laetrile is both safe, MORE effective in cancer therapy then traditional cancer treatment methods.
Q30.Should I supplement the intake of vitamin B17 with any other foods? Yes, -Dr. John Richardson of San Francisco, CA suggests: • Eat all edible vegetables. • Eat them raw preferably or only cooked slightly. • Eat all fish as fresh as possible, lightly cooked. • Eat skin free poultry. • Whatever does not fall within this formula, forget it. • Adequate liquid intake with freshly squeezed fruit juices . • Vitamin C :4-10 gms • Vitamin E: 1200 International Units • Multi-vitamins
Q31.When was the last time orthodox medicine used their massive profits to find a cure for a disease? When was the last time a cure for disease was found that used prescription drugs? If you said polio, you would be dead wrong. Polio was cured by a medical doctor in the 1940’s, but the cure was suppressed because he used a form of all-natural Vitamin C, which drug companies could not patent, control, and get rich off of
Q32.Are raw apricot seeds, Laetrile, or B17 illegal to buy in the USA? They are banned in North America, so what’s the difference? No. How could they ever be? There is one apricot seed in each apricot fruit and you can buy fresh apricots in almost any supermarket in any neighborhood in world. If the apricot seed was illegal the fresh fruit would be taken off the market completely! (If that ever happens were all in BIG BIG trouble let me tell you! LOL!) What it means is: If any hospital uses laetrile, the law says, that they jeopardize any grants from the government. As well, as any money from Medicaid and other hospital insurance originating from the government. Since nearly all of hospital revenues come from patient insurance, not one hospital in the U.S. will take the chance and use any banned substance including, Amygdalin (also called vitamin B17, Laetrile, or apricot seeds.) Any Doctor that wants to use the substance from apricot seeds, must have their patient fill out a form and then the doctor must submit the form to the FDA. Again, doctors don't want to get involved in this and would rather keep their names off of the FDA watch lists. Additionally, the doctor's malpractice insurance will not be valid if they prescribe laetrile (B17, amygdalin, or apricot seeds) to a patient. The Americcan Medical Association (AMA) treats any Doctor that prescribes laetrile to be a renegade (traitorous) and that he has violated the AMA's membership policies and will be subject to membership termination. Therefore any Doctor that prescribes laetrile may destroy his career as a Doctor. There NOT going to do that for ANY patient EVER! Any individual that sells laetrile must not claim that it does anything in his place of business. Many health food stores in the past were raided and had to give up their supplies of B17. Because the B17 was near books that claimed that the B17 was the answer to cancer. In other words the books were near the B17 in the stores and was therefore considered "labeling" which is a term used by the FDA. Labeling according to the FDA is against the law and can be prosecuted. However on the Internet, it is different. Internet law is tricky and not the same as U.S. commercial law. In one case, Ken Kholas took the FDA to court and won his B17 back. That court case proved it wasn't wrong for him to have or to sell it. Bottom line TO YOU is that you can purchase, use, and have B17 or Apricot Seeds..
Q33.Why is B17, Apricot Seeds, and Laetrile banned in the USA by the Food and Drug Administration(FDA)? Simple math...Pharmaceutical companies CAN’T PATENT IT, and if they can’t patent something, then they can’t make tens of billions of dollars a year from it. If they can’t make money off of something, then they certainly don’t want to at the least LOSE tens of billions a YEAR. Because 99.9 % of people, if they knew about these mother nature produced products would no longer take the expensive drugs, chemotherapy, radiation, and have the cancer related surgeries! "It is estimated that if people had a CHOICE, lack of demand would shrink Doctors and Drugs to less than 10% of its current size, with the remainder almost entirely related to trauma related medicine. That would be a $900,000,000,000.00 (Nine Hundred BILLION Dollars!) loss to them. They are NOT going to take this loss without a good fight,” states Dr. Richard Shulze, N.D.
