Cancer Answer Has Been Known For Years
If you are just
, you are probably both amazed and confused by a great many things. It
is probably shocking for you to find out that the FDA is not standing
behind vitamin B17, which could be one of the greatest discoveries
about cancer prevention in your lifetime. It probably amazes you that
the little tiny apricot seeds can do so much to help people avoid
cancer. Not the least, it probably confuses you just a little. After
all, there are dozens of different websites about cancer prevention
with apricot seeds and vitamin B17 tablets.
Do any type of research on vitamin B17, laetrile, amygdalin, apricot
seeds, or cancer prevention and you are sure to come across the name
Dr. Ernst Krebs, Jr.-at least several times. Many sources mention him
in passing, just briefly noting his name; others just vaguely refer to
him as the scientist who discovered laetrile, perhaps. In any case,
most research sources do not go into a great deal of detail-they leave
the reader wondering who this Ernst Krebs guy is and why every site
keeps mentioning him.
Ernst Krebs came to realize that cancer was a result of a deficiency
in vitamin B17. His theory was supported by the fact that many, many
years ago-before cancer was a problem for humans-we used to eat
diets that were rich in vitamin B17. Humans used to
eat bread made with millet. People routinely ate the seeds of fruits.
As humans began adopting a different type of diet-one that was lacking
in vitamin B17-that's when cancer became an issue.
As further proof of this, Ernst Krebs points toward the Hunza tribe of
people. These people still eat a diet much like that of the diet
people used to eat very long ago. The Hunza tribe has never-ever-had a
case of cancer among all of their people...unless, that is, any of
their people left the tribe to live in the Western world.
The best way to look at is it to consider the two different forms. The
apricot seeds are, indeed, the best form of cancer prevention. Experts
say that it is always better to get nutrients from the raw source
whenever possible-this is true for all vitamins, not just for vitamin
B17. For example, eating a serving of grapefruit is a much better way
to get some vitamin C than taking a vitamin C tablet simply because
the human body is better capable of metabolizing the vitamin from the
food. So, you should definitely eat apricot seeds, about 7 to 10 per
Vitamin B17 tablets should be looked at as a supplement. Since you can
never be certain that you are getting enough amygdalin from the
apricot seeds (because they vary in size, weight, and composition),
you should ingest some amygdalin in a supplement form as well so that
you always get enough of the substance in your body.
Cancer prevention does not have to be a hard task. It is a lifelong
plan including smart choices in our day to day lives. Preventing
cancer is important to having a long and
and it is something not to take lightly. Prevention and early
detection begins with knowing your cancer risk; then, doing something
about it. A cancer prevention plan is a life- long commitment to a
long- life of
and it's never too late to start. It is easier than you may think.
