                                                            Cancer Answer Has Been Known For Years

Author: Jonathan Bell

cancerIf you are just learning about cancer prevention , 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 day.

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
healthy life, 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 healthy living and it's never too late to start. It is easier than you may think.
