B17, Part 2.
Common Sense and Toxicity
We've said that vitamin B17 is
harmless to non-cancer cells. This is true, but
perhaps it would be more accurate to say that
it's as harmless as any substance can be. After
all, even life-essential water or oxygen can be
fatal, if taken in unnaturally large doses. And
this is true also of vitamin B17.
For example, there's one
case of a man, who reportedly died from devouring
almost a cup of apple seeds. Incidentally, the case
never has been authenticated, but assuming it's
true, if the man had eaten the apples also, he would
have obtained enough extra rhodanese from the whole
fruit to offset the effect of even that many seeds
in his stomach.
But that would have
required that he eat several cases of apples, which,
of course, would have been impossible in the first
Nature can only do so
much. It cannot anticipate excess of this kind.
Therefore it's wise to follow the simple rule that
one should not eat at one time more seeds, than he
likely would consume, if he also were eating a
reasonable quantity of the whole fruit. This is a
common-sense rule with a large safety margin that
can be followed with complete confidence.
And when it comes to the
laboratory forms of vitamin B17 known as amygdalin
or Laetrile, there's even less cause for concern.
For over a hundred years standard pharmacology
reference books have described this substance as
non-toxic. After a century of use in all parts of
the world there never has been a single reported
case of related death or even serious illness.
series of tests white rats were fed seventy
times the normal human dose of Laetrile and the
only side effects produced were greater
appetite, weight gain and superior health, just
what one would expect from taking a vitamin. Aspirin
tablets are twenty times more toxic, than the
equivalent amount of Laetrile. And in
fact, Dr. Burk of the National Cancer Institute
has demonstrated that Laetrile is even less
toxic, than sugar.
B17 - Does It Really Control
Let's turn now to the
all-important question: Does Laetrile or vitamin
B17 actually control cancer in human beings and
if it does, is there statistical evidence to
support that claim?
for organized medicine say no. Almost all
official opposition to Laetrile is based upon a
1953 report by the Cancer Commission of the
California Medical Association. The report said
flatly: "No satisfactory evidence has been
produced to indicate any significant cytotoxic
effect of Laetrile on the cancer cell."
Idiots and Liars!
Using this report as a primary
reference, government agencies soon declared
that it was illegal to prescribe, transport or
even recommend Laetrile. The report was written
by the committee chairman, Dr. Ian MacDonald
and the committee's secretary, Dr. Henry
seven other prominent physicians appointed to
the committee, but none of them, not even the
men, who wrote the report, had any personal
experience with Laetrile. They had based their
conclusions entirely on the written records of
The scientific judgment
of these men perhaps can be best appreciated by
noting that MacDonald and Garland were the doctors,
who had made headlines claiming that there was no
connection between cigarette smoking and lung
cancer. In fact, MacDonald had claimed that
twenty-four cigarettes per day was a harmless
pastime and then he said: "A pack a day keeps lung
But even more important,
than this scientific ineptitude, is the fact that
both men actually had falsified their summary of the
Laetrile experiments. For example, their report
claimed that microscopic examinations of tumors
taken from patients treated with Laetrile showed no
evidence of beneficial chemical effect.
Yet ten years later it
was learned that one of the pathologists conducting
the examinations in fact did report several
instances of tumor destruction, which - he stated at
the time - could well have been caused by the action
of Laetrile. McDonald and Garland had not told the
The report also stated
that laboratory technicians had tried unsuccessfully
to release cyanide from Laetrile. This was offered
as powerful evidence that the entire theory was a
And yet, just two months
prior to that the American Medical Association
chemical lab had reported that it had been
successful in releasing cyanide from Laetrile. And
of course, other labs have done this also, including
the California Food and Drug Lab and of course, the
cytochemistry lab of the National Cancer Institute.
Again, MacDonald and
Garland had obscured the truth. Another important
aspect of this report is that the patients had
received extremely small doses of Laetrile, much too
small to prove anything.
Today it's not uncommon
to administer 2 or 3 grams of the material in a
single injection. Generally, 30 or 40 grams are
required, before the patient can report tangible
signs of improvement. But in the California
experiment the maximum total dosage was only about 2
grams and even that was divided among 12 injections.
5 patients had received only 2 injections and 5 had
received only 1.
So it's not
surprising that these experiments had failed to
obtain convincing evidence that Laetrile worked.
What is surprising, however, is that this and
similar discredited reports continue to be cited
by the American Cancer Society as proof that
Laetrile is a hoax.
Can B17 Restore Health Once
Cancer Has Begun?
But let's return to the original
side of this question! What evidence is there to
support the claim that Laetrile does work? As we
have seen, the health records of the Hunzakuts,
the Eskimos and many other groups around the
world are statistically conclusive that vitamin
B17 does control cancer in human beings with an
effectiveness approaching one-hundred percent.
There can be little controversy over that.
about cancer, once it already has started? Can
B17 restore a person to health, after he has
contracted the disease? The answer is
yes, if it's caught in time and if the patient
isn't too badly damaged by prior x-ray
treatment or toxic drugs.
cancer victims start taking Laetrile only after
their disease is so far advanced that they've been
given up as hopeless by routine medical channels.
Usually they've been told that they have only a few
more months or weeks to live and it's in this tragic
state of near-death that they turn to vitamin
therapy as a last resort. If they die, - and indeed
many of them do - then they are counted as
statistical failures for Laetrile. In reality it's a
victory for Laetrile that any of them should be
saved at this stage. For once a deficiency disease
has progressed so far, the damage it did simply
can't be reversed.
A man, who has been shot
with a gun, can have the bullet removed, but still
die from the wound. Likewise, a patient can have his
cancer destroyed by vitamin B17 and still die from
the irreversible damage already done to his vital
And so in view of this
tremendous handicap the number of terminal patients,
who have been restored to health, is most
impressive. In fact, there literally are thousands
of such case histories in the medical record. The
American Cancer Society has tried to create the
impression that the only ones, who claim to have
been saved by Laetrile, are those, who merely were
hypochondriacs and never really had cancer in the
first place. But the record reveals quite a
different story. Let's take a look at just a few
David Edmunds of Pinole, California
was operated on in June of 1971 for cancer of the
colon, which also had metastasized or spread to the
bladder. When the surgeon opened him up, he found
that the malignant tissue was so widespread, it was
almost impossible to remove it all. The blockage of
the intestines was relieved by severing the colon
and bringing the open end to the outside of his
abdomen - a procedure known as a colostomy. Five
months later the cancer had returned and Mr. Edmunds
was told that he had only a few more months to live.
Mrs. Edmunds, who is a
nurse, had heard about Laetrile and decided to give
it a try. Six months later instead of lying on his
deathbed, Mr. Edmunds surprised the doctors by
feeling well enough to resume an almost normal
cystoscopy of the bladder revealed that the cancer
there had completely disappeared. At his own
insistence he was re-admitted to the hospital to
see, if his colon could be put back together again.
In surgery they found nothing even resembling cancer
tissue. So they re-connected the colon and sent him
home to recuperate. It was the first time in the
history of the hospital that a reverse colostomy had
Mr. Edmunds now is
living a near normal life of health and vigor.
1967 Mrs. Joanne Wilkinson had a
tumor removed from her lower left leg just below the
thigh. Four months later there was a recurrence
requiring additional surgery and the removal of
muscle and bone. A year later a lump in the groin
appeared and the biopsy revealed that her cancer had
returned and was spreading.
Her doctor told her that
surgery would be necessary again, but this time they
would have to amputate the leg, the hip and probably
the bladder and one of the kidneys, as well. The
plan was to open up her lungs first, to see, if
cancer had located there. If it had, then they would
not amputate, because there wouldn't be any chance
of saving her, anyway.
At the urging of her
sister and a mutual friend Mrs. Wilkinson decided
not to undergo surgery, but to try Laetrile instead.
Her doctor was upset by this. He told her that if
she didn't have the surgery, she couldn't possibly
live longer, than twelve weeks. Five weeks after
starting on Laetrile, the lump in her groin had
disappeared. Today, years later, she is living a
healthy and productive life.
1972 Dr. Dale Danner, a podiatrist
from Santa Paula, California, developed a pain in
the right leg and a severe cough. X-rays revealed a
carcinoma of both lungs and what appeared to be
massive secondary tumors in the leg. The cancer was
inoperable and resistant to radiotherapy. The
prognosis was: incurable and fatal.
At the insistence of his
mother Dr. Danner agreed to try Laetrile, although
he had no faith in its effectiveness. Primarily just
to please her, he obtained a large supply in Mexico.
But he was convinced from what he had read in
medical journals that it was nothing, but quackery
and a fraud. "Perhaps it was even dangerous", he
thought, for he noticed from the literature that it
contained large amounts of cyanide.
Within a few weeks the
pain and the coughing had progressed to the point,
where no amount of medication could hold it back.
Forced to crawl on his hands and knees and unable to
sleep for three days and nights, he became
despondent and desperate. Groggy from the lack of
sleep, from the drugs and from the pain, finally he
turned to his supply of Laetrile.
Giving himself one more
massive dose of medication, hopefully to bring on
sleep, he then proceeded to administer the Laetrile
directly into an artery. Before losing consciousness
from the medication, Dr. Danner had succeeded in
taking at least an entire ten-day supply - and
possibly as high as a twenty-day supply - all at
When he awoke thirty-six
hours later, much to his amazement not only was he
still alive, but also the cough and pain were
greatly reduced. His appetite had returned and he
was feeling better, than he had in months.
Reluctantly he had to admit that Laetrile was
working. So he obtained an additional supply and
began routine treatment with smaller doses. Three
months later he was back to work.
Doctors Who Have Used
Since Laetrile was developed in
1952, there have been literally thousands of
similar case histories reported and documented.
And when all these are viewed as a group, they
begin to take on the form of numerical
statistics, which of course are more meaningful,
than individual cases.
been at least 26 published medical papers
written by well-known physicians, who have used
Laetrile experimentally in the treatment of
their own patients and who have concluded that
Laetrile is both safe and effective in the
treatment of cancer.
American Cancer Society and other spokesmen for
the medical establishment would have us believe
that only crackpots have endorsed this
conclusion. But the doctors, who conducted these
experiments and those, who share their
conclusions, are not quacks. Here are just a few
of the names:
In West Germany there is
Dr. Hans Nieper, director of the
Department of Medicine at the Silbersee Hospital in
Hanover. He is a pioneer in the medical use of
cobalt and is credited with developing the
anti-cancer drug cyclophosphamide. Undoubtedly, he
is one of the world's most famous and respected
In Canada there is Dr.
N.R. Bouziane, director of Research Laboratories
at St. Jeanne d'Arc Hospital in Montreal. He is a
member of the hospital's tumor board in charge of
chemotherapy. Also, he is dean of the American
Association of Bio-Analysts.
In the Philippines there
is Dr. Manuel Navarro, professor of
medicine and surgery at the University of Santo
Tomas in Manila. He is distinguished internationally
as a cancer researcher and has over one-hundred
major scientific papers to his credit, some of which
have been read before the International Cancer
In Mexico there is Dr.
Ernesto Contreras, who for over a
decade has operated the famous Good Samaritan Cancer
Clinic in Tijuana. He is one of Mexico's most
distinguished medical figures. He received
post-graduate training at Harvard's Children's
Hospital in Boston. He has served as professor of
histology and pathology at the Mexican Army Medical
School and as the chief pathologist at the Army
Hospital in Mexico City.
In Belgium there is Dr.
Maisin of the University of Louvain. In Italy
there is Dr.
Guidetti of the University of Turin. In
Japan there is Dr.
Sakai, a prominent physician in Tokyo.
And in the United States
there are such respected names as Dr. Burk
of the National Cancer Institute, Dr. Morrone
of the Jersey City Medical Center, Dr. Krebs,
who developed Laetrile, Dr. Richardson of
San Francisco and many more from over twenty
countries with equally impeccable credentials.
Brilliant Side Effects:
These researchers have reported
that most of their patients experienced several
important side effects, including an immediate
lowering of blood pressure, improved appetite,
an increase in the hemoglobin and red blood cell
count and above all, a release from pain without
Even if the
patient has started Laetrile therapy too late to
be saved, this last effect is a merciful
blessing in itself.
In the United States if a doctor
wishes to avoid being labeled a quack, he must
practice what is called consensus medicine. In
other words, he must use only those treatments
that generally are also used by his colleagues.
present time in the field of cancer those are
limited to surgery, x-ray and drugs. For
comparison therefore let's turn now to the
results and benefits attained through these
so-called orthodox treatments!
As we shall see, surgery
is the least harmful of the three and in some cases
it can be a life-saving stop-gap measure. Surgery
also has the psychological advantage of visibly
removing the tumor and from that point of view it
offers the patient and his family some comfort and
hope. However, the degree, to which surgery is
useful, is the same degree, to which the tumor is
The greater the
proportion of cancer cells in that tumor, the less
likely it is that surgery will help and the most
highly malignant tumors of all generally are

or 15 percent. And once the cancer has metastasized
to a secondary location, surgery has almost no
survival value whatsoever.
reason, of course, is that, like the
other therapies approved by organized medicine,
surgery removes only the tumor, it does not
remove the cause.
The rationale behind
x-ray therapy is essentially the same, as with
surgery. The medical objective is to remove the
tumor, but to do so by burning it away rather, than
cutting it out. Here also it's primarily the
non-cancer cell that's destroyed.
The more malignant
the tumor, the more resistant it is to
In fact, this procedure
has all the same limitations and drawbacks of
surgery plus one more: it actually increases the
likelihood that cancer will develop in other parts
of the body.

effective way to induce cancer.
been demonstrated not only among the survivors
of Hiroshima, but a research team at the
University of Buffalo recently reported that
less, than a dozen routine medical x-rays to the
same part of the body increases the risk of
leukemia by at least sixty percent and these
routine x-rays are nothing compared to the
intense radiation used on cancer patients.
X-rays induce cancer
because of at least two factors. First, they do
physical damage to the body, which triggers off the
production of trophoblast cells as part of the
healing process. Second, they weaken or destroy the
production of white blood cells, which, as we have
seen, constitute the immunological defense
mechanism, the body's frontline defense against
with all forms of currently popular treatments,
once the cancer has metastasized to a second
location, there is practically no chance that
the radiology patient will live. So in addition
to an almost zero survival value radiotherapy
has the extra distinction of also spreading the
very cancer it's supposed to combat.
The record of so-called
anti-cancer drugs is even worse. Most of them
currently in use are highly poisonous not just
to cancer, but to the rest of the body, as well.
In fact, generally they're more deadly to
healthy tissue, than they are to the malignant
Most of these drugs are
described as radiomimetic, which means, they mimic
or produce the same effects as radiation.
Consequently, they also suppress the immunological
defense mechanism and thus help to spread the cancer
to other areas.
But whereas x-rays
usually are directed to one or two locations, these
chemicals do their deadly work on every cell in the
entire body. The use of exotic and highly toxic
drugs is the latest fad in cancer therapy.
As scores of these drugs
are developed each year, cancer patients become the
human guinea pigs, upon which they're tested. The
tragic results are well depicted in the following
statements taken from just a few of the official
Chemotherapy Reports of the National Cancer
"An effort was made to
choose patients, who were well enough to withstand
the anticipated toxicity... Early death of two of
the first five patients treated caused a reduction
to eight milligrams per kilogram per day. No
significant anti-tumor benefit of any duration was
observed... In this study six of the eight children
died... No therapeutic effect was observed.
manifestations consisted of vomiting, hypertension,
changes in oral mucous membranes and diarrhea. Renal
damage and cerebral edema were observed at
post-mortem examination in each of the six patients,
who died, while receiving this drug ... The death of
two patients was unequivocally caused by drug
toxicity ... Eight of the fourteen patients, who
survived their initial courses of therapy, showed
rapid and general deterioration and died within ten
weeks, after therapy began."
And so it goes. Year-in
and year-out. Deadly experiments fully approved by
organized medicine. Experiments that can be viewed
only as a form of human vivisection.
Vitamin Therapy For Cancer:
This then is the comparison
between vitamin therapy and orthodox treatments.
The statistics, that follow, are taken from the
National Cancer Institute, the American Cancer
Society and from the clinical records of those
physicians, who have used Laetrile in the
treatment of their own patients.
widely depending on the age of the patient, the
sex, the cancer location and the degree of
malignancy. Consequently, the figures shown will
be averages for all kinds and all groups
together. This is the story they tell.
those with advanced metastasized cancer,
who have been told by their physician that there is
no hope, only 15% will be saved, when they turn to
vitamin therapy, which is not good. But under
orthodox treatment less, than one out of one
thousand - or one-tenth of one percent - will
survive five years.
those with early diagnosed cancer at
least 80% will be saved by vitamin therapy, but no
more, than 15% will survive under orthodox
of those, who presently are healthy with no
clinical cancer to begin with, close
to one hundred percent can expect to be free from
cancer as long as they routinely obtain adequate
amounts of vitamin B17.
those, who subsist on the typical American diet
and rely only on the therapies of organized
medicine, are doomed to a survival rate of just
84%. And that figure includes all ages. It
is much less for those above 30.
As mentioned previously,
these figures will vary widely depending on age,
sex, cancer location and degree of malignancy. Also,
they're somewhat arbitrary, when it comes to
separating early diagnosed cancers from those that
are advanced, for often there's a gray area between
the two. Nevertheless, in general they are as
accurate as any such tabulation can be and they tell
an impressive story that cannot be brushed aside.
Considering the lack of
results obtained by orthodox medicine, it's been
said that voodoo witchcraft would be just as
effective and perhaps even more so, for at least
then the patient would be spared the deadly side
effects of radiation and chemical poisoning.
Just as we are amused
today at the primitive medical practices of
history, future generations surely will look back
at our own era and cringe at the senseless
cutting, burning and poisoning that now passes for
No matter, how useless
or even harmful current practices may be, consensus
medicine demands that they be used by every
physician. Regardless of how many patients are lost,
the doctor's professional standing is upheld,
because those, who pass judgment through peer
review, are using the same treatments and getting
the same tragic results.
On the other hand, if a
doctor deviates from this pattern and dares to apply
nutrition as the basis of his treatment, even if he
attains a high degree of success, he is
condemned as a quack. He may lose his hospital
privileges and even is subject to arrest.
There's no doubt that
most of the opposition to vitamin therapy comes from
well-intentioned people, who simply don't yet have
all the facts. But vested interest also plays an
important role. As stated at the beginning of this
presentation, the science of cancer therapy isn't
nearly as complicated as the politics of cancer
The history of how these
vested interests have succeeded in influencing the
medical profession, government agencies and public
opinion is a fascinating story by itself. But, of
course, time doesn't permit it to be told here.
For the full story of
both the science and the politics read "World
without Cancer". This
book contains all the information presented in this
film plus a great deal more. It includes extensive
extracts from primary research documents and is
amply footnoted, so that the serious students can

contained could well save their lives.
vitamin B17 is as widely understood and
available as other vitamins, cancer then will be
as rare as is scurvy or pellagra today. When
nitrilosides are used perhaps as a routine
seasoning to our food like iodized table salt,
then the battle finally will be won.
This is our
goal and it's an objective that can be reached
right now by anyone, who will act upon this
knowledge. You and your family now may become
secure from cancer. But that's only because
