Can I freeze apricot kernels?
Yes, freezing seeds does not hinder their nutrient value rather it prolongs the life of them. For optimum freshness, store the kernels either in the refrigerator or freezer.[
Can I give these products to my pets?
Many of our customers do and have had no problems. Keep in mind your pet’s body weight and adjust accordingly. Please consult with your veterinarian.
How many apricot kernels can I safely eat?
With cancer it is most important to eat the seeds. The seeds must be chewed and kept in the mouth for as long as it takes for them to practically liquify. One or two seeds per hour is what should be eaten when you have cancer. The best results have come when the person eats 3-5 seeds per waking hour. Vitamin B17 is water soluble and non-toxic. It is as safe as sugar or salt. Some people get nauseous if they eat too many seeds at one time, the same as one would if one drank too much salt water at one time. If this is the case, take a lesser amount of the next time.
Prevention: Eating the whole food rather than taking a pill is always better. This means eating 7-10 seeds (kernels) a day no matter how bitter you think they are. Is your life worth saying “They are too bitter, I won’t eat them?” (Editors Note). Remember, only the apricot kernels have the enzymes that make the laetrile work in your body. If the apricot kernels make you sick or you absolutely will not eat them, then you will have to supplement with several other vitamin/enzyme tablets to make up for what you loose with not consuming the apricot seeds (kernels).
Can I take B17 and chemo together?
The worst idea is to take chemo alone. It is better to take chemo and eat healthy food together.[
Can I have the seeds and the vitamin B17 capsule together?
Of course. There are many components of the seeds that are not included in the vitamin capsule. Consider, scientists have only identified about a thousand vitamins and minerals. They say that there are hundreds of thousands that are still not identified yet. That means that you cannot rely just on supplements, we need to consume whole foods to have optimum health. One study shows scientists feeding one group of rats all of the vitamins and minerals known.
The second group was given garbage. The vitamin and mineral eating group was skinny and sickly after a couple of weeks but the garbage eating group was, of course, strong and healthy. At the same token a garbage eating group with supplements added can be even stronger. This study means always eat the whole foods along with the vitamins as the great Dr. Krebs states.
What should I take along with the Vitamin B17?
If you have cancer, it is recommended by Dr. Manner (one of the pioneers of the B17 treatment) to take pancreatic enzymes and vitamin C. They can both be found in your local health food store. Just ask for for pancreatic enzymes.
Pancreatic enzymes occur naturally in: pineapple & papaya. Their job is to help burn away the negative protein cell wall of the cancer cell for the B17 to get in and fully destroy it. Besides killing the cancer cells, one’s organs might be damaged due to cancer development.
It is very important to nurture the rest of your body back to working condition. Here is a list of helpful natural foods you can take along with apricot kernels.
- Beets (strengthen the kidneys)
- Vitamin D3 – naturally from being outside in the sun (or supplement)
- Bone Meal (will help build up the bones again if you had bone cancer)
- Chaga- known as the king of medicinal mushrooms – contains notably high levels of the DNA-protective antioxidant known as melanin, which fights radiation by activating the pineal gland. Known as an immune-system modulator, anti-tumour agent and longevity herb among many other qualities. Chaga is an excellent adjunctive superherb to support any cancer-fighting protocol.
- Shiitake mushrooms (have been found to have an antiviral substance called lentinan)-known to stimulate the body’s immune system & deactivate viruses
- Kombucha tea
- Grape seeds (the actual seeds, not just the extract)
There are many different foods and herbs that have healing properties. It is common knowledge among scientists and holistic doctors that combinations of therapies are more effective than just one. Put together what you can with, of course, the key center, the middle core…the seed.
Can I take vitamin B17 with chemotherapy or radiation?
Absolutely. Please find out if there is any success rate with chemo with the cancer you have. If the doctor says “yes” then ask him if he means success as in cured or success as in it might extend your life for a few months.
If you are about to have an operation where the cancer cells are going to be disturbed, it is wise to take the seeds and the vitamin B17 to kill any of the free cells. Vitamin B17 can only help. It has been known to lower blood pressure and is one of the healthiest foods on earth; strengthening the arteries and heart as well as many other benefits.
Can it help me?
If you have first been diagnosed and you’re starting B17 therapy without chemo or radiation treatment, you should be fine. Dr. Krebs claimed a 98% success rate and the Del Rio Hospital of Tijuana claims nearly a 100% success rate with virgin cases.
A virgin case is an individual that has not had chemo or radiation. In cases where the individual has had chemo and/or radiation, it depends on how far the cancer has spread and what damage has been done by the chemo and radiation. In either case, it is imperative for one to implement Vitamin B17 into their daily consumption.
Why don’t medical doctors use vitamin B17?
Doctors are taught from the beginning that Laetrile is not effective. On their own they are not allowed to use it and can only refer to their book which holds the two false studies on Laetrile. If a doctor does use vitamin B17, he risks losing his license and even imprisonment. After attending years of medical school, internship and finally working in a hospital, most doctors only want to hear of the treatments that they’re allowed to administer, even if they are not successful.
Only researchers can know the truth, those that seek knowledge. Start with Mr. Griffin’s book “World Without Cancer.” This book is one of a few that tell the true account of vitamin B17 and will guide you in further research that proves the simple answer to cancer.
Why is Laetrile banned in the USA by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)?
With billions of dollars spent each year in research with additional billions taken in from the cancer-related sale of drugs, and with vote-hungry politicians promising ever-increasing government programs, we find that today there are far more people making a living from cancer than are dying from it.
Ref. WWC, pp19
Has Laetrile ever been tested by the FDA?
NO. On September 1, 1971, the FDA announced that the AD Hoc Committee of Consultants for Review and Evaluation of Laetrile had found “no acceptable evidence of therapeutic effect to justify clinical trials.” And then it announced that, because of their findings, Laetrile could no longer be promoted, sold, or even tested in the USA.
Ref. Press release, HEW/FDA, Sept. 1, 1971 Ref. WWC, pp 44
As of 1974 was anyone taking Laetrile on a daily basis after all the publicity on the subject?
YES – There are now several thousand people in the USA taking Laetrile daily. M.D.’s by the hundreds are studying or even taking it themselves, and certain hospitals are now undertaking its study. FDA or no FDA, NCI (National Cancer Institute) or no NCI, obfuscation or no obfuscation.
Ref. WWC, pp45
How did Dr. Ernst T. Krebs, Jr. discover that B17 and/or Laetrile could fight and control cancer? Why is it called Vitamin B17?
By 1952, Dr. Ernst T. Krebs, Jr., a biochemist in San Francisco, had advanced the theory that cancer, like scurvy and pellagra, is not caused by some kind of mysterious bacterium, virus or toxin, but is merely a deficiency disease aggravated by the lack of an essential food compound in modern man’s diet. He identified this compound as part of the nitriloside family which occurs abundantly in nature in over 1200 edible plants and found virtually in every part of the world. It is particularly prevalent in the seeds of those fruits in the Prunus Rosacea family:Bitter almond Apricot Blackthorn Cherry Nectarine Peach Plum Also contained in grasses: Maize Sorghum MilletCassava Linseed Apple seeds Many other foods that, generally, have been deleted from the menus of modern civilization. It is difficult to establish a clear-cut classification for a nitriloside. Since it does not occur entirely by itself but rather is found in foods, it probably should not be classified as a food. Like sugar, it is a food component or a food factor. Nor can it be classified as a drug, as much as it is a natural, non-toxic, water-soluble substance entirely normal to and compatible with human metabolism.
The proper name for a food factor that contains these properties is a vitamin. Since this vitamin normally is found with the B-complexes, and since it was the 17th such substance to be isolated within this complex, Dr. Krebs identified it as vitamin B17.
Ref. WWC, pp52
What happens to animals that are in zoos when they are deprived of their natural diet in the wild?
In the San Diego zoo…. animals are almost totally devoid of nitriolosides…over a 6-year period, five bears died of cancer.
Ref. WWC, pp54
How do cancer and other diseases compare in modern man and primitive man?
All the diseases known to modern man are unknown in primitive societies.
Ref. WWC, pp55
Don’t all the foods that we buy have the vitamins put back? I see “enriched” on all the labels. Doesn’t this mean that the food contains all the vitamins we need to be healthy?
NO – These are not the same as the original. As the June 1971 Journal of the American Geriatric Society reported: “Vitamins removed from food and returned as ‘enrichment’ are not a safe substitute, as witnessed by the study in which Roger J. Williams, PhD, reported that rats fed enriched bread died or were severely stunted due to malnutrition. ” Even senility has been proven to be caused by a deficiency of Vitamins B and Vitamin C.
Ref: WWC, pp58
Don’t all our foods have all the vitamins we need including B17?
NO – In the past fifty years, the foods that once provided the American people with ample amounts of natural Vitamin B17 gradually have been pushed aside or replaced altogether by foods almost devoid of this factor. Significantly, it is during this same time span that the cancer rate has moved steadily upward to the point where today, one out of every two people in the USA is destined to contract this disease.
What is the Hunza Culture and why do they not contract cancer?
In the remote recesses of the Himalaya Mountains, between West Pakistan, India and China, there is a tiny kingdom called Hunza. These people are known world over for their amazing longevity and good health. It is not uncommon for Hunzakuts to live beyond a hundred years and some even to a hundred and twenty or more. Visiting medical teams from the outside world report that there never has been a case of cancer in Hunza. It is interesting to note that the average Hunza diet contains over two hundred times more nitriloside than the average American diet.
In fact, in that land where there is no such thing as money, a man’s wealth is measured by the number of apricot trees he owns. The prince happily confirmed it and then described how it was not uncommon to eat 30 to 50 apricot seeds as an after-lunch snack. These often account for an excess of 75,000 International Units of vitamin A per day as well as over 150 mg of vitamin B17. The women of Hunza are renowned for their strikingly smooth skin even into advanced age. Generally, their faces appear 15 to 20 years younger than their counterparts in other areas of the world. They claim that their beauty secret is merely the apricot oil which they apply to their skins almost daily. It is important to know that when the Hunzakuts leave their secluded land and adopt the menus of other countries, they soon succumb to the same diseases and infirmities, including cancer, as the rest of mankind.
