Vitamin B-17: The Greatest Cover Up in the History of Cancer.



The term “Let Food be Thy Medicine and Medicine be Thy Food” could not hit any harder, especially when it comes to the present discussion related to Cancer and our present state of nutrition and health.  I do understand that venturing into this discussion may be touchy due to the fact that we have only allowed Medical Doctors to dictate the present cases, acceptable cures and latest treatments regarding Cancer; while the everyday citizen without a medical degree has succumbed to it and the fact that they wake up one day and discover they (we) have Cancer in some form or another.  As a Nutritionist I feel that it is my duty to open up the discussion to everyone here; discussing healing through Nutrition hasn’t been made illegal (yet).

I unequivocally stand by the belief that many types of Cancer can be cured with Food and earth elements; as well as cure many other types of illnesses that exist out there today. What I don’t want you to take away from this is the idea that I am encouraging you to leave your present treatment or your oncologist if you are currently battling cancer. Even with this however, I do feel it is important to highlight one of the greatest cover-ups in the history of Cancer Treatment that happens to be related to a little known (to the greater public) anti-cancer remedy and treatment known as Laetrile  what is also known as Vitamin B-17.

One of the greatest concentrated sources of Vitamin B-17 can be found in the seed of fruit that many of us may have taken for granted: The Apricot Seed. The actual seed is found beneath the hard pit of the apricot. The anti-cancer agent found in the actual Laetrile B-17 vitamin is known as Amygdalin. 

“If B-17 is so powerful and helpful towards cancer elimination than why is it not prescribed by modern Physicians as a treatment?”:

Simple Answer:

“A control for cancer is known, and it comes from nature, but it is not widely available to the public because it cannot be patented, and therefore is not commercially attractive to the pharmaceutical industry.”
-G. Edward Griffin.


So once again the lives of many are held hostage at the cost of patents, certain doctor’s incomes and a possible sizable reduction of chemotherapy centers; that would thus reduce profits for the pharmaceutical industry. What makes Vitamin B-17 so powerful is the fact that it is comprised of Glucose and Hydrogen Cynanide. So the way it actively destroys cancer cells is by the Glucose ‘injecting’ itself into the cancer cell. Then Benzaldahyde and Cyanide from the glucose and each other create a targeted poison that kills the cancer cell. This natural form of Chemotherapy was (and still is) considered controversial and many Medical professionals termed B-17 as “Toxic”. Well…the last time I checked having cancer (in any form) is ‘Toxic’ in itself and causes death daily. The only thing B-17 is toxic to is cancer cells and a Corrupt Government.

So here’s where the cover up comes in. Although it was not approved for treatment by the FDA, doctors like John A. Richardson M.D. began using it “illegally” to treat patients at his clinic in San Francisco, and it was working remarkably better than orthodox treatments. His success with laetrile is documented in Laetrile Case Histories: The Richardson Cancer Clinic Experience by John A. Richardson M.D. and Patricia Irving, R.N. However later was forced to down play the overall benefits of B-17 when held up against conventional cancer treatments. The FDA then came out hard in its attack on Laetrile. The FDA considers Laetrile an unapproved form of treatment and ‘illegal’ for a practitioner to administer, therefore you cannot buy Laetrile in the US, but you can buy B17, Amygdalin in supplement form. You can also gather the seed of the Apricot and consume them at your discretion either as an anti-cancer agent or even in the midst of battling cancer (*as reported by those who defeated cancer using B-17).

 “What would happen if everyone in the world ate right, and in addition to this knew about the healing effects of B-17?”

This question I’m sure is one that many of those attacking the documented benefits of B-17 couldn’t bear to answer. Outraged by B-17 cover- up by the F.D.A and the A.M.A; for a 5 year period between the years of 1972 and 1977 studies were conducted by Sloan-Kettering on the anti-cancer benefits of B-17 to which it was concluded that: 1) Laetrile inhibited the growth of tumors 2. It stopped the spreading (metastasising) of cancer in mice 3. It relieved pain related to cancer 4. It acted as a cancer preventative and 5. It improved general health of the Cancer Patient.  One of the researchers on that panel, Dr. Kanematsu Sugiura was asked “Do you stick by your belief that laetrile stops the spread of cancer?” He replied famously, “I stick.” But then later Sloan-Kettering came out and fired one of its top spokesman on the subject, Ralph Moss for reporting on the findings. This passive-aggressive type of behaviors when it comes to natural cures for cancer only hurts the general public at large.

But while it is one thing to hear about clinical trials of B-17 working on eliminating cancer cells, it is totally different when actual, real life people have cured themselves of Cancer and are living to tell about it. These are people who have fought back against the system, took control of their destiny and listened to their own bodies. To read Chris’s story click here.

The Legacy of Dr. Max Gerson:

I wouldn’t do any service or justice to try and tell the full story of Dr. Max Gerson in this particular piece. But what I will tell you is that his legacy is continuing through his daughter, Charlotte Gerson in San Diego. The San Diego location acts as an informative hub. The actual Cancer Treatment center is located in Tijuana, Mexico and Budapest, Hungary due to United States laws on Cancer treatment. Even if you are not 100% percent convinced that any of this has any validity, you still owe it to yourself to know about The Gerson Institute and what Dr. Max Gerson was doing for Cancer patients before he was marginalized, stripped of his  medical license and ultimately set up.

Being Proactive in Our Fight against Getting Cancer:

The best medicine is preventative medicine. I don’t have to read off a long list of statistics. If you’re an American, on the standard American Diet or even an Immigrant who has accepted the standard diet of present society , exercise very little and engage in other harmful bodily choices, then cancer is running after us: that’s a statistical fact. There are some cases when no matter what you do, cancer finds us. Even if this is the case it is no excuse to not be proactive and get an early start of ridding the even slightest possibility of getting cancer in any form. As powerful as B-17 is, there are also many other ways that natural foods have been shown to be helpful in warding off cancer. Consuming: Black Seed (Nigella Sativa), Aloe Gel, Aloe Juice, Ginger, Chia, Cumin, Flax,  large amounts of raw fruits and vegetables, turmeric, goji berries, food mushrooms (white button, shitake, etc), swiss chard, chili peppers, spurilina, wheatgrass, sumac, regular periodic fasting and many other plant based spices and foods have been shown to be helpful in the fight of keeping cancer at bay. Eating is one thing, how we live and think is another. Meditate daily. Don’t smoke cigarettes. If you would like natural options through a Mind-Body method for dealing with smoking cessation please contact.

 All we truly have in this world is the present moment. In this present moment, let us learn about suppressed natural treatments for not only ailments about Cancer, but on many other diseases as well. Why isn’t Food Nutrition taught consistently in Medical School? It is something to think about. In this present moment we can be encouraged that so as long one has breath in their body…it is never too late to change. It is not too late to take the power back. Here’s to your health.
