It is hard to believe that one of the most reliable, safe and inexpensive cancer solutions has not only been eliminated in key oncology but also in an alternative health care community. Some individuals, even those who are well trained in medicine, are taking laetrile or apricot seeds, while fearing to test their supposed toxic elements.
So I have to tackle a toxic problem right away. The natural source of laetrile or B17 in the apricot kernel nucleus is largely achieved if it is not stimulated in cancer patients. It should only be a dietary supplement. This source of natural substances is amygdalin. Sad, but many mistakenly believe that this may cause serious cyanide poisoning.
The amygdalin compound has four molecules. Two are glucose molecules. The other two are cyanide and benzaldehyde. The latter both of them perform some unusual metabolic processes: they only release cancer cells. Or they remain in the amygdalin compound and dies.
It's a very smart deal. Cancer cells are the cells that depends on the fermentation of glucose(energy. Cancer cells always attracts b17 vitamin (amygdalin)because it has sugars like glucos, but it is eliminated when they metabolizes those same compounds which contains benzaldehyde and cyanide. Glucose becomes so called “sugar bait”.
Cancer cells, these cells also has beta-glucosidase in it’s enzyme that you will not find in healthy cells. This enzyme "unlocks" the amygdalin compound, releasing deadly toxins in the cancer cell. Only cancer cells metabolize amygdalin. Hello normal cells do not exist.
In most non-cancerous cells, there is another enzyme called rhodanese. Some remaining molecules (free molecules) of cyanide that might escape, sulfur molecules are plugged to Rodanese, creating harmless cyanates that are removed in the urine. Sufficiently safe?
Many cancer victims used apricot seeds to heal themselves, consume 30 or more per day. Here is an example from the "Down" (Australia) cited in 2010. March 20 Sydney Morning Herald article Jill Stark: "Paul Reid should be dead. He was diagnosed with rare, untreated lymphomas, his oncologist was given five years, seven tops."
His cancer treatment protocol consisted of 30 apricot kernels per day intake. He seems to have survived all the cyanoids! The article contained a healthy photo of Reid, smiling with fresh organic food, full of fresh organic food, at age 68, 13 years after his prediction. He changed his eating habits by removing red meat, processed foods and sugars.
