    Vitamin B17: Cure for Cancer?

    Wayne Uffleman

    This is a very interesting article. It compares cancer to scurvy. Vitamin deficiancy. Could it really be that simple. Seems possible.

    Wouldn't that tick millions of people off, if all we need to be doing is eating foods that are high in laetrile (vit b17)? Think of all of the people that suffered for no reason. The love ones we have lost.

    Here is some of the article.....

    Vitamin B17: Cure for Cancer?

    Wayne Uffleman

    Issue LIV- April 4, 2006

    1. "The history of science is the history of struggle against entrenched error."
    This is the claim of G. Edward Griffin in his book, World Without Cancer, a source which I would like to acknowledge as the chief inspiration for this article. It is not an outlandish claim by any means; from doctors being fired for requiring their staff to wash their hands, to the idea of vaccines being offhandedly rejected, history is replete with examples.

    Perhaps most astonishing of all is the story of scurvy. Up until two hundred years ago, scurvy epidemics regularly decimated entire crews of ships. The British Navy recorded over one million sailor deaths due to scurvy between 1600 and 1800 alone. Scurvy is an extraordinarily painful disease causing bleeding from the nostrils, mouth, ears, and even the skin. For hundreds of years, scientists searched in vain for its cause, thinking that it was some sort of virus that lived in the dark holds of ships.

    Then, in 1535, a French explorer got his ship stuck in a sheet of frozen ice by the St. Lawrence River. Before long, scurvy began to kill his crew off one by one. Twenty-five died, and many more were on their deathbeds until a friendly Native American showed them the simple cure -- a drink made of tree bark that is rich in vitamin C. When the sailors returned to Europe, they offered their story to the medical establishment, but the leading scientists would have nothing of what they smugly referred to as "simple witchcraft from savages." It wasn't until two hundred years later that a surgeon in the British navy made the same discovery. He noticed that oranges and lemons produced relief from scurvy and recommended that the British Navy include citrus fruits in their food supplies.

    But the scientific community still didn't bite! They scoffed at the idea of something as simple as nutrition being able to put an end to one of the most torturous diseases in human history.

    It took another half-century before the medical establishment finally advised the navy to stock ships with foods rich in vitamin C, but in the meantime, thousands more perished because of medical arrogance. When the Brits finally wised up, they became a naval power that was unrivaled by all other sea-faring nations. The British became known as "Limeys" because of the limes they once stocked on their ships to prevent scurvy. It is no exaggeration to say that the empire on which the sun never set was largely built as a result of overcoming scientific prejudice against vitamin therapy.

    That may be history, but it's not all in the past; pellagra offers a similar story. In 1914, a doctor proved that it was a disease caused by a vitamin B deficiency, but it still took another thirty years for the medical establishment to accept the vitamin theory of pellagra as legitimate medicine! It is an unfortunate fact of history, that science has a strange aversion to nutrition as valid medicine.

    2. Cancer is a vitamin deficiency disease like Scurvy and Pellagra.

    Many renowned researchers and doctors from all across the world have come to this very conclusion. Consider the following: a chronic disease is one that does not go away on its own. A metabolic disease is one that occurs from within the body and is not transmittable to another person. Cancer is therefore a chronic, metabolic disease. In the entire history of medical science, there has not been a single chronic, metabolic disease that was ever cured or prevented by drugs or surgery. In every case -- whether it be scurvy, pellagra, rickets, or any of the others -- the cure was found only in factors relating to adequate nutrition, usually a very specific vitamin deficiency.

    In the same way doctors once dealt with scurvy, virtually all cancer research is dedicated to looking for something which causes cancer instead of the lack of something. Imagine doctors from centuries ago scrambling to care for scurvy patients by trying to stop the profuse bleeding scurvy causes, when all they really needed to do was nourish their patient with a couple of oranges.

    This is exactly how modern doctors treat cancer; they attack only the symptoms of cancer, and almost never attempt to research what actually causes the disease within the human body. As one researcher observed, "The tumor is not the disease; it is merely the symptom of the disease. Orthodox medicine…is totally focused on the tumor. To most oncologists, the tumor is the cancer."

    3. Vitamin B17 prevents cancer in the same way that vitamin C prevents scurvy.

    If cancer is in fact a vitamin deficiency disease, then there must be an essential vitamin that has been edited out of modern man's diet. Further, preventing or controlling cancer would be as simple as restoring this food compound to our daily diet.

    Over the past century researchers from a number of fields have discovered such a vitamin; the scientific community calls it amygdalin, or simply vitamin B17, and in its concentrated form, it is called Laetrile.

    Vitamin B17 is indeed present in foods that westerners once ate in abundance but have, over time, ceased consuming. For example, while vitamin-B17-rich millet was once the world's largest staple grain, it has been replaced by wheat, which has practically no vitamin B17 at all. Similarly, sorghum cane, also rich in vitamin B17, has been replaced with sugarcane, which has a low nutritional value. Apple seeds also contain the vitamin, and while it was once common for apple cores to be consumed along with the rest of the fruit, people rarely do so at present. It has come to the point that westerners consume almost no vitamin B17 on a regular basis.

    How do we know this vitamin works? Well, aside from lab research, researchers from a number of fields have observed vitamin B17 working in nature. If you have a pet, you may have noticed that it will often search for certain grasses to eat even when it is completely full, and if an animal is sick, its instinct to consume these grasses is even greater. A nutritional examination of the grasses they select has revealed that they all contain an especially high concentration of vitamin B17. Zoo keepers have observed a similar phenomenon. When given a fresh peach or apricot, primates dispose of the fruit's soft flesh, crack open the hard pit, and consume the seeds inside of it. These seeds are also extremely rich in vitamin B17.

    Similarly, scientists were once baffled when they observed wild bears and other meat-eating predators instinctively consuming their prey's viscera and rumen. Only after the animals finish eating these stomach organs do they move on to consume the muscle portions of their prey that humans regularly eat. This mystery has been solved, since it was discovered that the viscera and rumen contain many grasses consumed by the prey-- grasses high in vitamin B17.

    Mammals of every kind, all around the world, instinctively include foods high in vitamin B17 in their regular diets-- which is why a wild animal contracting cancer is rarely, if ever reported. It is only when animals are domesticated or zoo'd, and forced to eat a human prescribed diet, that they regularly contract cancer.

    In addition to wild animals, there is a number of human populations throughout the world that have a regular intake of vitamin B-17 in their diet and -- get this -- they never get cancer!

    A careful reviewer of the claim that some populations never get cancer might speculate that these same populations have low life expectancy rates, leading other factors to kill them off before cancer can develop. But that's not so with Hunzakuts who live in a remote area of the Himalaya Mountains. Hunzakuts are known for their amazing longevity -- many of them live beyond 100, and some surpass 120 years old and more! In 1922, a doctor from the Journal of The American Medical Association visited Hunza to study just why its people might be living so long. He noted, "The Hunza has no known incidence of cancer. They have an abundant crop of apricots. These they dry in the sun and use very largely in their food."

    It is fitting that the author mentioned apricot seeds, since they contain the highest known concentration of vitamin B17 found in nature. One observer noted, "it was not uncommon for them to eat thirty to fifty apricot seeds as an after-lunch snack." He continues, "In addition to the ever-present apricot, the Hunzakuts eat mainly grain and fresh vegetables including buckwheat, millet, alfalfa, peas, broad beans, turnips, lettuce, sprouting pulse or gram, and berries of various sorts. All of these with the exception of lettuce and turnips contain vitamin B17"

    That there is no cancer in Hunza still holds true today. Numerous visiting medical teams from the west have done studies, and all of them returned to report not a single case. Yet, studies have also shown that when Hunzakuts leave their remote kingdom, travel to the west, and abandon their vitamin-B17-rich diets, they become as susceptible to cancer as Europeans and Americans.

    Missionaries and medical journals have reported other cancer-free populations from every continent in the world -- from natives in Africa and South America to Eskimo tribes in northern Canada and Alaska. In addition, many informed westerners have re-introduced the vitamin back into their diets. And in all cases, the degree to which these populations are free from cancer is in direct proportion to the amount of vitamin B17 found in their natural diets.

    The gravity of this information is truly amazing. Think about it -- while more than one in every three Americans will contract cancer in their lifetime, not one in a thousand who regularly ingests vitamin B17 has been recorded to contract the disease.
