(NaturalHealth365) In 1952, Dr. Ernst Krebs advanced the idea that cancer was caused by a nutritional deficiency – similar to scurvy and pellagra. He theorized that cancer was caused by a lack of vitamin B17 in modern diets. No doubt – a ‘radical’ concept for conventionally-trained cancer specialists.
But, the fact of the matter is that the power of our mind and healthy lifestyle choices can reverse any chronic health condition. In truth, there are many natural ways to stop cancer. Laetrile, or vitamin B17, happens to be one of the most impressive ways to overcome a cancer diagnosis. Sadly, the dumbed down media refuses to report on the effectiveness of this harmless (powerful) nutrient.
An incredible (medical) statement about Laetrile
In Oct. 1963, Dr. Shigeaki Sakai – a prominent physician in Tokyo – reported:
“Administered to cancer patients, laetrile has proven to be quite free from any harmful side effects, and I would say that no anti-cancer drug could make a cancerous patient improve faster than laetrile. It goes without saying that laetrile controls cancer and is quite effective whenever it is located.”
A study by Dr. Sugiura, at Sloan-Kettering in 1973, showed that laetrile significantly inhibited the appearance of lung metastasis in mice bearing spontaneous mammary tumors and significantly inhibited the growth of the primary tumor.
Vitamin B17 shows up in just about every plant that is known to prevent and reverse cancer including, fungi, algae, broccoli, kale, spinach, cabbage, turnip greens, collard greens and lots of seeds and beans. Do you see where this is going?
Where are the lowest rates of cancer in the world?
The cultures and people with diets high in vitamin B17 are for the most part cancer-free.
The first place, which is worth mentioning, when talking about the value of vitamin B17 is a remote place in the Himalayan Mountains know as Hunza Valley. These people are known for longevity and no known incidences of cancer.
What do the Hunza people eat? Apricot kernels, high in vitamin B17, are a staple of their diet. Sure, you can say they live in a place where a healthy lifestyle is practiced and that there are a few other factors to their longevity. But, if you look further you see a pattern.
There wealth is measured by the number of apricot trees they own. They produce oil from the seeds, used for cooking and topical applications.
In addition to the ever present apricots, the hunzahuts eat mainly grain and fresh vegetables. These include buckwheat, millet, alfalfa, peas, broad beans, turnips, lettuce, sprouting pulse and berries of various sorts. All of these – with the exception of lettuce – contain vitamin B17.
Why are the Eskimos free of cancer?
Unlike the Hunzas, the Eskimos live in frigid conditions and eat lots of saturated fats. So, contrary to conventional ‘wisdom’ – how do they avoid cancer? Surprising to most, the Eskimos diet is very high in B17 – which comes from the residue of caribou meat, other grazing animals and the salmonberry.
An Eskimo delicacy is salads made from the stomach contents of caribou and reindeer. These animals eat plenty of fresh tundra grass – which contains the highest content of B17 versus other grasses.
Hopi and Navajo Indians have very low cancer rates
The American Medical Association (AMA) conducted a special study to discover why there was little to no cancer among these Indians.
The February 5, 1949 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association stated they found 36 cases of cancer in a population of 30,000. In the ‘general’ population there would have been about 1,800 cases.
Dr. Krebs research later found that the typical diet for the Navajo and Hopi Indians consisted of B17-rich foods such as, cassava. Naturally, the tribal people would ingest large amounts of B17 daily.
It is worth pointing out that in 1949 Native Americans were already introduced to some of the white man’s food and that could have accounted for the number of cases found.
Do Seventh Day Adventists get cancer?
Studies on the members of the Seventh Day Adventist Church have found that Seventh Day Adventists have more than a 50% less chance of being diagnosed with cancer. By the way, they eat a large variety of plant foods – which contain vitamin B17.
By all accounts, our modern diet is deficient in naturally occurring vitamin B17 plus many other essential nutrients. One can only wonder if this is by design or pure ignorance. But, one thing is certain, we must do a better job at educating the public about healthy lifestyle choices.
Early American cookbooks offered anti-cancer recipes
Just one look at some of the early American cookbooks such as, Favorite Recipes of America – widely promoted the safe use of cherry pits, apricots, peaches, apples, nectarines and almonds – all of which helped people avoid cancer.
Jams were made with the fruit and ground up seeds by our ancestors. Many native people and early Americans relied on a diet containing anywhere from 250 to 3000 mg of nitriloside (B17) daily.
Today, we rely on a diet of, on average, less than 2 mg nitriloside (B17) daily. We have the proof already that including whole foods and their seeds are designed to keep us safe from harm. Take good care of yourself – by eating the best food on Earth.
