Fruit seeds that kill cancer cells without side effects

(The Best Years in Life) With some help from the Dr. Oz disinfo theater, a widespread paranoia has sprung into foodie and health improvement circles regarding apple seeds as a source of cyanide poisoning. If that were true there would be a pile of dead bodies instead of thousands of cancer cure testimonies from amygdalin, the compound in most fruit seeds and the essence of B-17 or laetrile.

San Francisco biochemist Ernst Krebb, Jr. created laetrile after researching cancer free indigenous mountain tribes whose diet incorporated apricot kernels. After testing the laetrile he had extracted from the active compound in apricot kernels known as amygdalin for safety and efficacy, he sent it to the prestigious Sloane-Kettering Cancer Institute of NYC for them to test it.

The institute had their top scientist, senior laboratory researcher Dr. Kanematsu Sugiura investigate laetrile’s efficacy. After testing it on mice, Dr. Sugiura concluded it was the most potent anti-cancer cell killing substance he had ever seen. But the cancer industry doesn’t want natural cancer cures that can’t be patented for big bucks and administered to produce side effects that require lots of expensive “health care” support.

So the Sloane-Kettering Instituted denied Dr. Kanematsu’s report and went on a campaign to marginalize laetrile and invite the FDA to ban it. Meantime, another San Francisco resident, Dr. John Richardson, was having success injecting laetrile in over 60 cancer patients with outstanding results. He urged investigative journalist GE Griffin to publicize and defend laetrile.

Griffin went on to write World Without Cancer, covering laetrile or vitamin B17 and the cancer industry’s lies. A considerable amount of documentation proving Kettering Institute’s cover-up was supplied by Dr. Ralph Moss, the erstwhile PR spokesman for Sloane-Kettering who had become fed up with the lies. Dr. Moss has since written several articles on non-toxic alternative cancer cures.

But the source of laetrile or B17, which are both the same, is legally available. That natural substance source is amygdalin from soft apricot seed kernels that are found within the hard pits. Unfortunately, many falsely believe this poses a serious cyanide poisoning threat.

Amygdalin`s Best Legal Source

A Sydney, Australia mainstream newspaper told the story of a man who cured himself of cancer by consuming large amounts of apricot kernels containing amygdalin daily with his improved overall diet. The soft, bitter kernels are contained in the hard apricot pits.

Jill Stark opened her March 10, 2010 article with, "Paul Reid should be dead. Diagnosed with a rare, incurable lymphoma, he was given five years, seven tops, by his oncologist." The article included a photo of a healthy Reid, smiling with a platter full of fresh organic foods at age 68, 13 years after his prognosis. Here is that original article.

Despite official warnings regarding cyanide poisoning from amygdalin, Reid did not suffer cyanide poisoning eating 30 kernels a day!


How Amygdalin’s Cyanide Targets Only Cancer Cells

Amygdalin contains four substances. Two are glucose, the third is benzaldehyde, and the fourth is cyanide. Yes, cyanide and benzaldehyde are poisons if they are appear as free molecules not bound within other molecular formations. Many foods, including vitamin B12, contain cyanide. But they are safe because the cyanide remains bound and locked as part of another molecule.

There is an enzyme in normal cells to catch some free cyanide molecules and render them harmless by combining them with sulfur. That enzyme is rhodanese. By binding the cyanide to sulfuric rhodanese, it is converted to a cyanate, which is a neutral substance. Then it is easily passed through the urine with no harm to the normal cells.

Cancer cells thrive on fermenting sugar instead of metabolizing with oxygen. Amygdalin contains two glucose molecules. So the amygdalin molecules are quite appealing to sugar hungry cancer cells. And cancer cells contain an enzyme that normal cells do not share, beta-glucosidase.

This enzyme is considered the unlocking enzyme for amygdalin molecules. It releases both the benzaldehyde and the cyanide, creating a toxic synergy that destroys cancer cells. The cancer cell`s beta-glucosidase enzyme causes cancer cells to self destruct by opening themselves to the cyanide and benzaldehyde.

This is how cancer cells are tricked and targeted by amygdalin. Chemotherapy does not discriminate. It kills healthy cells and destroys one’s immune system.


One needs to be on a good organic diet while avoiding all processed foods when treating cancer. Sugar is an absolute no-no for any cancer treatment. It just feeds the cancer cells. Sugar can allow cancer cells to thrive while ignoring amygdalin`s poisons, leaving too many healthy cells with the burden of avoiding any incidental cyanide breakdowns from abundant amygdalin.

This specific burden and extreme apricot kernel consumption could leak some cyanide into healthy cells. But the warning signs are early and clear. If any nausea, dizziness, or headaches occur, that indicates it’s time to slow down the amygdalin dosage, or cut the sugar.

It’s generally advised that a do-it-yourself cancer treatment should be combined with one or two other protocols. The Budwig diet (Johanna Budwig) for curing cancer prohibits synthetically derived laetrile or B17 tablets, but allows natural amygdalin from consuming apricot kernels.

About the author:

Paul Fassa started looking into natural health to overcome his unhealthy lifestyle. Then he developed more interest as he researched his articles for Natural News and Align Life.

He is amazed at the ignorance of natural medicine and how beneficial foods and herbs are constantly ignored or vilified in order to promote toxic foods and meds by Big Pharma, the FDA, USDA, and the AMA, what he likes to call the "Medical Mafia".

His blog is - "Healthmaven: Escape from the Medical Mafia Matrix." His Natural News articles can be reviewed here:
