I am looking for information on a way of curing cancer with
grain/bread weevils. I know that this is being done in Argentina and
possibly elsewhere too. Can you obtain any information about this,
particularly in relation to the UK.

I located the information on curing cancer with weevils in Argentina,
however there is no such information for the UK or anywhere else for
that matter. Detailed information for cancer treatment with weevils is
given on their website. Do you already have this information?

You don't need weevils to treat cancer. You need Vitamin B17. Read on :

Please be aware that no scientific study of this approach appears to
have been reported in the medical literature.

if you want something that has medical research, and that fights
radical cells, you want lycopene, lycopene is an antioxidant that
kills and prevents free radical cells (cancers), lycopene is the
pigment that gives tomatoes and watermelons thier colour, to get the
most lycopene, eat raw tomatoes and watermelons

I believe there is a scene in the movie "Empire of the Sun" in which
Jim eats weevils and mentions that they have vitamins.

Please be aware that ANY of the above-mentioned treatments, including
weevils -- are JUST that -- treatments, which may or may not actually
be effective. As of yet, there is NO PROVEN CLINICAL EVIDENCE that any
of these methods are effective in treating cancer. Of course, you can
ask Bobbie7 to provide you with the information she has found, and it
is your right to explore that information.

Just remember that she is only providing you with the links for which
you have asked. Our purpose here is to point you toward the
information you seek, whatever it may be. None of us here is qualified
to give medical advice; indeed, it is important that someone with
cancer work hand-in-hand with their physician to determine which
direction their treatment should take.

Best wishes,

Subject: Vitamins B17 & C vs. Chemotherapy for treating cancer.

It has been commented that these 'alternative' remedies have not been
subjected to trials.  It should be noted that chemotherapy has also
never been shown to do more good than harm.

An excellent summary of chemo vs. vitamins b17 and c can be found on
