Hi there phillade-ga,
Thank you for your question! This has been a favorite topic for me -
alternative cancer treatment - ever since the death of a relative due
to "conventional" cancer treatment.
Before we begin I must tell you that what I am about to disclose does
not carry the endorsement of orthodox "modern" medicine. However, it
has been tried and true, validated by science since the 1950s, and is
even practiced in many countries BUT the United States... because, as
you may well be aware of, there are vested interests in ensuring that
current allopathic (drug-based) treatments remain the status quo. It
has been said that more people make money from cancer than are dying
I don't expect you to believe me right off the bat, and therefore I
have prepared for you verifiable information that this treatment works
in both preventing as well as regressing cancers.
I notice that you mentioned the word "vaccination". Let's address this
first - since cancer is not caused by a microbe foreign to the body,
we cannot be "vaccinated" against it. However we can very successfully
prevent ourselves from getting it, and even treat it if so diagnosed.
I am talking about Vitamin B-17, also known as Laetrile, or Amygdalin.
I am going to cover several angles in presenting this to you :
1. Basic intro
2. How it works
3. Myth of toxicity
5. Treatment centers
6. Resistance from organized medicine
7. Scientific references
8. Your situation
Let us begin.
1. Basic Introduction
Welcome to Worldwithoutcancer.org.uk
"What you are about to read does not carry the approval of organised
medicine. The Food and Drug Administration, the American Cancer
Society, and the American Medical Association have labelled it "fraud"
and "quackery". In fact, the FDA and other agencies of government have
used every means at their disposal to prevent this story from being
told. They have arrested citizens for holding public meetings to tell
others of their convictions on this subject. They have confiscated
films and books. They even have prosecuted doctors who apply these
theories in the effort to save the lives of their own patients.
The purpose of this web-site is to show that this great human tragedy
can be stopped now entirely on the basis of existing scientific
knowledge. The information you are about to read marshals the evidence
that cancer is a nutritional-deficiency disease, like scurvy or
pellagra. It is not caused by a bacterium, virus or mysterious toxin,
but by the absence of a substance that modern man has removed from his
diet. That substance is Vitamin B-17, also known as Amygdalin or
Laetrile. If that analysis is correct, then the treatment and
prevention of cancer can be made simple. All that needs to be done is
to restore that easily obtained and inexpensive food factor to our
daily meals. An increasing number of doctors all over the world are
now are testing and proving in their own clinics that the vitamin
concept of cancer is true."
During 1950 after many years of research, a dedicated biochemist by
the name of Dr. Ernest T. Krebs, Jr., isolated a new vitamin that he
numbered B-17 and called 'Laetrile'. As the years rolled by, thousands
became convinced that Krebs had finally found the complete control for
all cancers, a conviction that even more people share today. Back in
1950 Ernest Krebs could have had little idea of the hornet's nest he
was about to stir up. The pharmaceutical multinationals, unable to
patent or claim exclusive rights to the vitamin, launched a propaganda
attack of unprecedented viciousness against B-17, despite the fact
that hard proof of its efficiency in controlling all forms of cancer
surrounds us in overwhelming abundance. Why has orthodox medicine
waged war against this non-drug approach? G. Edward Griffin, author of
the book World Without Cancer contends that the answer is to be found
not in science, but in politics, and is based upon the hidden economic
and power agenda of those who dominate the medical establishment.
Each year, thousands of Americans travel to Mexico to receive vitamin
B-17 (Laetrile) therapy. They do this because it has been suppressed
in the United States. Most of these patients have been told that their
cancer is terminal and that they have but a few months to live. Yet,
an incredible percentage of them have recovered and they are living
normal lives (see success stories). However, the FDA, the AMA, the
American Cancer Society, and the cancer research centres continue to
pronounce that Laetrile is fraud and quackery. The recovered patients,
they say, either had "spontaneous remissions" or never had cancer in
the first place. If any of these people ultimately die after seeking
Laetrile, spokesmen of orthodox medicine are quick to proclaim: "You
see? Laetrile doesn't work!" Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of
patients die each year after undergoing surgery, radiation, or
chemotherapy, but those treatments continue to be touted as "safe and
In the U.S. the FDA has tried to use strict regulations, not law, to
ban vitamin B-17 for over 18 years. Vitamin B-17, or Laetrile Therapy
is only used by some hospitals in Mexico, which treat cancer with
nutrition. These hospitals achieve nearly a 100% recovery rate with
virgin cases (localised tumours/cancers that have not yet been burned
up with radiation, poisoned with chemotherapy, or cut into with
surgery). A majority of Laetrile-treated patients report positive
responses, ranging from increase in the feeling of well-being and even
brighter outlook of life, to such noticeable reactions as an increase
in appetite, weight gain and, frequently, restoration of natural
colour, reduction or elimination of cancer-connected pain and
cancer-caused fetor. In thousands of cases, total regression of all
cancer symptoms has been confirmed.
Vitamin B-17, commonly known as "Amygdalin", or "Laetrile", is a
natural substance that can be found in a variety of species in the
Vegetable kingdom. The greatest concentration is found in the seeds of
the rosaceous fruits, such as apricot kernels and other bitter nuts.
There are many seeds, cereals and vegetables that contain minimal
quantities of vitamin B-17 and form part of our daily diet.
Vitamin B-17 as Preventative
Vitamin B-17 is one of the main sources of food in cultures such as
the Eskimos, the Hunzas, the Abkasians and many more. Did you know
that within these tribes there has never been a reported case of
cancer? According to Dr. Krebs, we need a minimum of 100 mg of vitamin
B-17 (the equivalent of about seven apricots seeds) too nearly
guarantee a cancer free life. Foods that contain vitamin B-17 are as
KERNELS OR SEEDS OF FRUIT: The highest concentration of vitamin B-17
to be found in nature, aside from bitter almonds. Apple, apricot,
cherry, nectarine, peach, pear, plum, prune.
BEANS: broad (Vicia faba), burma, chickpeas, lentils (sprouted), lima,
mung (sprouted), Rangoon, scarlet runner.
NUTS: Bitter almond, macadamia, cashew.
BERRIES: Almost all wild berries. Blackberry, chokeberry, Christmas
berry, cranberry, elderberry, raspberry, strawberry.
SEEDS: Chia, flax, sesame.
GRASSES: Acacia, alfalfa (sprouted), aquatic, Johnson, milkweed,
Sudan, minus, wheat grass, white dover.
GRAINS: oat groats, barley, brown rice, buckwheat groats, chia, flax,
millet, rye, vetch, wheat berries.
MISCELLANEOUS: bamboo shoots, fuschia plant, sorghum, wild hydrangea,
yew tree (needles, fresh leaves).
Two rules of thumb: According to Dr. Krebs, the basic concept is that
sufficient daily B-17 may be obtained by following either of two
First, eating all the B-17-containing fruits whole (seeds included),
but not eating more of the seeds by themselves than you would be
eating if you ate them in the whole fruit. Example: if you eat three
apples a day, the seeds in the three apples are sufficient B-17. You
would not eat a pound of apple seeds.
Second, one peach or apricot kernel per 10 lbs of body weight is
believed to be more than sufficient as a normal safeguard in cancer
prevention, although precise numbers may vary from person to person in
accordance with individual metabolism and dietary habits. A 170-lb
man, for example, might consume 17 apricot or peach kernels per day
and receive a biologically reasonable amount of Vitamin B-17.
And two important notes: Certainly, you can consume too much of
anything. Too many kernels or seeds, for example, can be expected to
produce unpleasant side effects. These natural foods should be
consumed in biologically rational amounts (no more than 30 to 35
kernels per day).
2. How It Works
The use of Amygdalin (Vitamin B-17) in Metabolic Cancer Therapy -
Francisco Contreras, M.D., Oasis of Hope Hospital
"Metabolic therapy is a non-toxic cancer treatment based on the use of
Vitamin B- 17, proteolytic pancreatic enzymes, immuno-stimulants, and
vitamin and mineral supplements (see Phase I and II on page 28).
Laetrile (B-17) is the chief anti-tumour agent. It is a natural
chemotherapeutic agent found in over 1,200 plants, particularly in the
seeds of common fruits such as apricots, peaches, plums, and apples.
It is also a diglucoside with cyanide radical that is highly
"bio-accessible." This means that it penetrates through the cellular
membrane reaching high intra-cellular concentrations easily. This
cyanide radical is what once made the vitamin controversial, but over
the years, it has been proven that amygdalin is completely safe and
non-toxic. The normal cells in our organism contain an enzyme called
Rhodanese which "neutralises" the amygdalin. This enzyme does not
allow the amygdalin to release the cyanide. In this way, amygdalin
only serves as glucose to healthy cells providing energy. Malignant
cells do not contain this enzyme. In the absence of Rhodanese, the
amygdalin is activated liberating the cyanide radical inside the
malignant cell causing its destruction. This is the way God creates
things: Only cancer cells are destroyed but normal ones are not
affected. As the amygdalin attacks unhealthy cells, it transforms into
a silicate, which is much like aspirin. It contributes greatly to pain
control. The hundreds of clinical studies conducted by many competent
physicians around the world, including those directed by Dr. Emesto
Contreras Rodriguez at the Oasis of Hope Hospital hospital in Mexico,
give us complete confidence that there is no danger."
Please refer to the following Web page for a diagram of how B-17 works
at the chemical/molecular level :
Graphic on Action of Laetrile in Cancer
" Though it has limitations in certain cancers, vitamin B17 may be
extremely effective in the most common tumours such as carcinoma of
the lung, breast, prostate, colon, and lymphomas. A highly publicised
clinical trial conducted by the National Cancer Institute in 1981
tried unsuccessfully to prove Laetrile ineffective and toxic. Today,
Laetrile occupies a position on the "front lines" of alternative
cancer therapy. "We have found Laetrile to be effective in people that
have active cancer", says Dr. Contreras "but that is not its only
function, for the prevention of cancer and the maintenance of
remission there is nothing as effective as Laetrile. Its non-toxicity
permits its use indefinitely in the prevention of relapses and the
prevention of metastases. Surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy can
only be administered for a limited time, afterward patients are left
without any protection". "
3. Myth of Toxicity
Laetrile and the Life Saving Substance Called Cyanide (by Philip
Binzel, Jr., M.D.)
A doctor from the U.S. FDA once said that Laetrile contains "free"
hydrogen cyanide and, thus, is toxic. I would like to correct that
There is no "free" hydrogen cyanide in Laetrile. When Laetrile comes
in contact with the enzyme beta-glucosidase, the Laetrile is broken
down to form two molecules of glucose, one molecule of benzaldehyde
and one molecule of hydrogen cyanide (HCN). Within the body, the
cancer cell-and only the cancer cell-contains that enzyme. The key
word here is that the HCN must be FORMED. It is not floating around
freely in the Laetrile and then released. It must be manufactured. The
enzyme beta glucosidase, and only that enzyme, is capable of
manufacturing the HCN from Laetrile. If there are no cancer cells in
the body, there is no beta-glucosidase. If there is no
beta-glucosidase, no HCN will be formed from the Laetrile (1).
Laetrile does contain the cyanide radical (CN). This same cyanide
radical is contained in Vitamin B12, and in berries such as
blackberries, blueberries and strawberries. You never hear of anyone
getting cyanide poisoning from 12 or any of the above-mentioned
berries, because they do not. The cyanide radical (CW) and hydrogen
cyanide (HCN) are two completely different compounds, just as pure
sodium (Na+) - one of the most toxic substances known to mankind - and
sodium chloride (NaCl), which is table salt, are two completely
If the above is true, how did the story ever get started that Laetrile
contains "free" hydrogen cyanide? It was the Food and Drug
1. For a more detailed analysis of the theoretical action of Laetrile
against cancer cells, see G. Edward Griffin, World Without Cancer
(Thousand Oaks, CA: American Media, 1974).
I remember reading in some newspaper back in the late 1960's or early
1970's a news release from the FDA. This release stated that there
were some proponents of a substance known as "Laetrile" (I'd never
heard of it before) who were saying that this substance was capable of
forming hydrogen cyanide in the presence of the cancer cell. The
release continued by saying that, if this were actually true, we had,
indeed, found a substance, which was target-specific, and would be of
great value to the cancer patient. But, the news release went on to
say, the FDA had done extensive testing of this substance, "Laetrile,"
and found no evidence that it contained hydrogen cyanide or that any
hydrogen cyanide was released in the presence of the cancer cell.
Thus, they said, Laetrile was of no value.
When it was clearly established some time later that Laetrile did,
indeed, release hydrogen cyanide in the presence of the cancer cell,
how do you suppose the FDA reacted? Did they admit that they were
wrong? Did they admit that they had done a very inadequate job in
running their tests? No! They now proclaimed that Laetrile contained
hydrogen cyanide and thus was toxic!
So, here is a bureau of the Federal Government which, a short time
before, had said that the reason Laetrile did not work was because it
did not release hydrogen cyanide in the presence of cancer cells. Now,
when they find that it does, they say that it is toxic. When offered
an opportunity to present evidence of Laetrile's toxicity in Federal
Court, they admitted that they had none. (See Chapter One Alive and

6. Resistance from Organized Medicine
Why are natural alternative substances like Laetrile not approved by
" The short answer is that these substances are not approved by the
Food and Drug Administration. The full answer, however, is a bit more
complex. The reason they do not carry approval is that they have not
undergone the extensive FDA testing that all new drugs must pass
before being approved for common use. That's the law in the United
States. This process takes years of research work, requires tens of
thousands of pages of reports, and costs hundreds of millions of
dollars. The only firms that can afford this are large pharmaceutical
companies. Not even they will undertake such expense unless they can
eventually make a profit through sales, and that means they must
obtain a patent on the substance being tested. However, substances
found in nature cannot be patented, only man-made chemicals and
processes can. Since Laetrile and many other substances used in
alternative-cancer treatments are found in nature, they cannot be
patented. That means they will never be tested according to FDA
protocol. Consequently, they will never be officially approved no
matter how effective they may be. That is why you often hear it said
that alternative cancer therapies are "unproven." That is a very
misleading statement. They may not have been proven by FDA protocol,
but many of them definitely have been proven as both safe and
effective by actual clinical experience in the treatment of thousands
of cancer patients. Unfortunately, until the laws are changed, the
only officially approved substances we will ever have for the
treatment of cancer in the United States are man-made, patented

Q. Why don't medical doctors use vitamin B17?
" The answer to this question goes far beyond what we could possibly
answer in this small section. Mr. G Edward Griffin has dedicated the
entire second part of his book to "The Politics of Cancer Therapy",
which shows with great detail examples of dishonesty and corruption in
the field of drug research; a close look at the first major study
which declared Laetrile (vitamin B17) "of no value;" proof that the
study was fraudulent; the FDA's ruling against the use of Laetrile
because it had not been tested; and the refusal then to allow anyone
(except its opponents) to test it.
He also makes available an audio cassette titled "The Politics of
Cancer Therapy", a review of the science of cancer therapy; a summary
of the politics of cancer therapy; the early history of the I.G.
Farben chemical and pharmaceutical cartel; the cartel's early success
in the United States; and its "marriage" with DuPont, Standard Oil,
and Ford. The drug cartel's influence over the nation's medical
schools; the drug-oriented training given to all medical students; and
the use of philanthropic foundations to obtain control over
educational institutions. "
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 and not the
many positive true studies. 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". It can be bought at this web site in the
online store or at your local book store. This book is one of a few
that tell the true story of vitamin B17 and will guide you in further
research that proves the simple answer to cancer."
Amazon.com: Books: The Politics of Cancer Revisited
Excerpt from a review of this book :
"I can't remember when a book has cheered me the way this one has. As
a longtime worker in the field of alternative cancer treatment, and
one who has undergone his own battle with this disease, I rejoice that
a voice of authority has finally stated the truth in loud, ringing
tones -- the emperor has no clothes! The reiterated claim by our
government and its associated medical professionals that we are
"winning the war against cancer" is simply not true. And these
stalwarts in the Cancer Establishment are not the selfless servants of
humanity they have been portraying themselves as, either. Their ranks
are shot through with cronyism, conflicts of interest, and
subservience to the giant drug companies.
Masterfully, exhaustively, irrefutably, Dr. Epstein exposes this dirty
little game that has been snowing the American public for the last 25
years. And he makes a powerful case that, in the field of cancer as in
no other, an ounce of prevention is indeed worth a pound of cure.
Cancer, once contracted, is generally a very tough disease to treat
successfully. But, in very many cases, it can be prevented by avoiding
known cancer-causing agents in the environment, in the workplace, and
in consumer products."
Laetrile Another Suppression Story
" The implications of these findings are staggering of course. If we
managed to control Scurvy (vitamin C deficiency) centuries ago, how is
it we cannot do the same for cancer today? The fact of the matter is
that we could if our respective governments would allow it.
Unfortunately most governments have buckled under the pressure exerted
by the pharmaceutical multinationals, the American Food & Drug
Administration, and the American Medical Association. All three have
mounted highly successful 'scare' campaigns based on the fact that
vitamin B17 contains quantities of 'deadly' cyanide; conveniently
forgetting that vitamin B12 also contains significant quantities of
cyanide, and has long been available in health food shops world-wide.
Dr. Kreb's B17 Laetrile was derived from apricot seeds and then
synthesized into crystalline form using his own unique process.
Suddenly, the American FDA bombarded the media with a story about an
unfortunate couple who had poisoned themselves by eating raw apricot
seeds in San Francisco. The story made headline news across the U.S.A.
although several suspicious journalists never managed to establish the
identity of the unfortunate couple, despite many determined attempts.
But the multinational pharmaceutical/FDA boot had been put in with a
vengeance. From that point onwards eating apricot seeds or B17
Laetrile became synonymous with committing suicide... "

"As early as 1974, there was at least twenty-six published papers
written by well-known physicians who had used Laetrile in the
treatment of their own patients and who have concluded that Laetrile
is both safe and effective in the treatment of cancer.

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. He is the originator of the concept of
"electrolyte carriers" in the prevention of cardiac necrosis. He was
formerly the head of the Aschaffenburg Hospital Laboratory for
chemical circulatory research. He is listed in Who's Who in World
Science and has been the Director of the German Society for Medical
Tumor Treatment. He is one of the world's most famous and respected
cancer specialists. During a visit to the U.S. in 1972, Dr. Nieper
told news reporters, "After more than twenty years of such specialized
work, I have found the nontoxic Nitrilosides-that is Laetrile-far
superior to any other known cancer treatment or preventative. In my
opinion, it is the only existing possibility for the ultimate control

Laboratories at St. Jeanne d'Arc Hospital in Montreal and a member of
the hospital's tumor board in charge of chemotherapy. He graduated
magna cum laude in medicine from the University of Montreal. He also
received a doctorate in science from the University of Montreal and
St. Joseph's University, an affiliate of Oxford University in New
Brunswick. He was a Fellow in chemistry and a Fellow in hematology,
and certified in clinical bacteriology, hematology and biochemistry
from the college. He also was Dean of the American Association of
After the first series of tests with Laetrile shortly after it was
introduced, Dr. Bouziane reported:
We always have a diagnosis based on histology [microscopic analysis of
the tissue]. We have never undertaken a case without histological
proof of cancer...
In our investigation, some terminal cases were so hopeless that they
did not even receive what we consider the basic dose of thirty grams.
Most cases, however, became ambulatory and some have in this short
time resumed their normal activities on a maintenance dose. (Cancer
News Journal, Jan./Apr. 1971, pg. 20)
In the Philippines there is Manuel Navarro, M.D., former Professor of
Medicine and Surgery at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila; an
Associate Member of the National Research Council of the Philippines;
a Fellow of the Philippine College of Physicians, the Philippine
Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism; and a member of the
Philippine Medical Association, the Philippine Cancer Society, and
many other medical groups. He has been recognized 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 Congress. In 1971 Dr. Navarro wrote:
I ... have specialized in oncology [the study of tumors] for the past
eighteen years. For the same number of years I have been using
Laetrile?amygdalin in the treatment of my cancer patients. During this
eighteen year period I have treated a total of over five hundred
patients with Laetrile?amygdalin by various routes of administration,
including the oral and the I.V. The majority of my patients receiving
Laetrile?amygdalin have been in a terminal state when treatment with
this material commenced.
It is my carefully considered clinical judgment, as a practicing
oncologist and researcher in this field, that I have obtained most
significant and encouraging results with the use of Laetrile?amygdalin
in the treatment of terminal cancer patients, and that these results
are comparable or superior to the results I have obtained with the use
of the more toxic standard cytotoxic agents. (Letter from Dr. Navarro

In Mexico there is Ernesto Contreras, M.D., who, for over three
decades, has operated the Good Samaritan Cancer Clinic (now called the

medical figures. He received postgraduate 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
Dr. Contreras was introduced to Laetrile in 1963 by a terminal cancer
patient from the United States who brought it to his attention and
urged him to treat her with it. The woman recovered, and Dr. Contreras
began extensive investigation of its properties and use. Since that
time he has treated many thousands of cancer patients, most of whom
are American citizens who have been denied the freedom to use Laetrile
in their own country.
Dr. Contreras has summarized his experiences with vitamin therapy as
The palliative action [improving the comfort and well?being of the
patient] is in about 60% of the cases. Frequently, enough to be
significant, I see arrest of the disease or even regression in some of
the very advanced cases. (Cancer News Journal, Jan./April, 1971, pp.
20. We must bear in mind that these are terminal patients-people who
have been given up as hopeless by orthodox medicine. Fifteen percent
recovery in that group is a most impressive accomplishment.)
In Japan there is Shigeaki Sakai, a prominent physician in Tokyo. In a
paper published in the October 1963 Asian Medical journal, Dr. Sakai
Administered to cancer patients, Laetrile has proven to be quite free
from any harmful side?effects, and I would say that no anticancer drug
could make a cancerous patient improve faster than Laetrile. It goes
without saying that Laetrile controls cancer and is quite effective
wherever it is located.
In Italy there is Professor Etore Guidetti, M.D., of the University of
Turin Medical School. Dr. Guidetti spoke before the Conference of the
International Union Against Cancer held in Brazil in 1954 and revealed
how his use of Laetrile in terminal cancer patients had caused the
destruction of a wide variety of tumors including those of the uterus,
cervix, rectum, and breast. "In some cases," he said, "one has been
able to observe a group of fulminating and cauliflower?like neoplastic
masses resolved very rapidly." He reported that, after giving Laetrile
to patients with lung cancer, he had been "able to observe, with the
aid of radiography, a regression of the neoplasm or the metastases."
After Guidetti's presentation, an American doctor rose in the audience
and announced that Laetrile had been investigated in the United States
and found to be worthless. Dr. Guidetti replied, "I do not care what
was determined in the United States. I am merely reporting what I saw
in my own clinic." (Cancer News Journal, Jan./April, 1971, p. 19)
In Belgium there is Professor Joseph H. Maisin, Sr., M.D., of the
University of Louvain where he was Director of the Institute of
Cancer. He also was President Emeritus of the International League
Against Cancer which conducts the International Cancer Congress every
And in the United States there are such respected names as Dr. Dean
Burk of the National Cancer Institute; Dr. John A. Morrone of the
Jersey City Medical Center; Dr. Ernst T. Krebs, Jr., who developed
Laetrile; Dr. John A. Richardson, the courageous San Francisco
physician who challenged the government's right to prevent Laetrile
from being used in the United States (See John A. Richardson, M.D.,
and Patricia Griffin, R.N., Laetrile Case Histories; The Richardson

" After an active life-time of work and sport, at 69 years of age,
Gordon had not been feeling well for nine months, until finally he was
diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer at the Brisbane Royal Hospital
in April 2000. The tumour was large and his PSA (Prostate Specific
Antigen) reading was 1500. Having been aware of Metabolic Treatment
for many years, Gordon refused the recommended treatments, and upon
release contacted the Narvaez Clinic in Juarez, Mexico. In great pain
and in a wheel chair, Gordon arrived in Juarez on 14 May. Immediate
tests showed the PSA now had a reading of 2400, and x-rays showed that
the cancer had made extensive inroads into his bones, which had become
quite fragile. Gordon was advised by the clinic doctor that the
metabolic treatment would eliminate the cancer throughout his body,
but that in his experience only 30% of patients have a bone
regeneration. After one week of treatment, the PSA was down to 1700;
after the second week the PSA was 600 and Gordon was advised the the
regeneration of the bones had commenced. After three weeks Gordon
returned home to Brisbane walking and free of pain. He has continued
taking supplements as recommended by the clinic. Some 6 weeks later
the PSA was 48, and after another 6 weeks it was 4.9. Within three
months he had regained weight, and slowly the muscles were returned to
their normal strength and flexibility, allowing him to play golf twice
a week. Nearly twelve months later, Gordon remains on a maintenance
regime of diet and supplements and has regular checks. Without the
trauma of conventional treatment, his recovery has astounded all who
know him. "

1998 and with a PSA of 22.7 was diagnosed as having prostate cancer.
Within a few days I had changed my lifestyle and my way of thinking, I
became a semi-vegetarian, eliminated fats and sugar from my diet and
wherever possible all artificial flavourings, colourings, E numbers
and chemicals. I also developed a daily protocol of vitamin and herbal
supplements. Three months later my PSA dropped to 1.3 and a biopsy
reported that no malignancy was found. A few months later and with a
PSA of 9 was again diagnosed as having prostate cancer. This time my
original healing program appeared not to have any affect and after
trying numerous other 'alternative' treatments my PSA rapidly rose to
25.2. At this time - November 1999 - by chance came upon a book
written by Phillip Day and titled 'Cancer, Why We're Still Dying To
Know The Truth' wherein it described the benefits of apricot kernels.
I immediately ordered a two-pound pack of kernels and commenced to
daily consume forty apricot kernels and half of a fresh pineapple.
Then in May 2000 my PSA dropped to 0.7 and a subsequent biopsy again
reported no malignancy found. Today my PSA is a steady 0.5 and I
firmly believe that this success is entirely due to the consumption of
the apricot kernels and now continue to take 10 daily as a maintenance
" Mr. Co Baart from New Zealand was diagnosed with small cell
carcinoma of the prostate with metastasis to the liver and started
metabolic therapy on 09/28/00. After undergoing metabolic therapy
for two months his liver, which was swollen about 70% went down to
normal size and the tumor itself went down about 25%. His prostate
shrunk and his urinary and bowel functions returned to completely
normal. After being on 40 mg of morphine when first diagnosed he
is now completely off of it. Mr. Baart feels he is on his way to
recovery from this disease. "

After being diagnosed with prostate cancer, Mr John Shown started
Metabolic Therapy with Laetrile on 15th July 1999. After only six
weeks on the therapy his PSA dropped from 6.6 to 1.7. Also, he noticed
that a number of skin lesions also went completely away. Carles Thomas
started on Metabolic Therapy with Laetrile on 16th September 1999. In
a recent phone call (4th January 2000) Peggy Thomas (his wife) tells

" Dear Dr. Krebs. Thank you for giving me another birthday (May 17).
Please, again, remember November 15, 1979, when my doctor and four
other urologists gave me a maximum of four months to live with my
prostate cancer, and they set up appointments for radiation and
chemotherapy, which I knew would kill me if the cancer didn't, and I
refused their treatment. Then on a Sunday afternoon I contacted you by
telephone and went with your simple program. I am 71 years old and am
on my 13th year [of survival]. Three of the four urologists have died
with prostate cancer, and forty or fifty people are alive today and
doing well because they followed my "Krebs" simple program. Thanks
again for giving me back my life. Your friend, HM "Bud" Robinson "

I know this has been an extremely long answer... I am hoping that you
will take the time to sift through this information. I have tried my
very best to make it as to-the-point and as accessible as possible. If
you take the time to absorb all this I am sure that you will be
convinced that Vitamin B-17 is the answer to cancer.
I take apricot kernels myself, every day. I have found a tremendous
boost to my health since I started taking them. My ex-colleague who
took my advice, had several large moles on his back shrivel up and
fall off. He had them since his teenage years and right after a few
doses of the seeds, this happened. He couldn't attribute it to
anything else but the seeds. Imagine, having those moles for more than
20 years and one day they just fall off.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to post a

has been a satisfactory answer!
