which he named ‘Laetrile’ and numbered B17. His research led to amygdalin, which is included in the apricot seed kernels.
Why is this truth about apricot seeds hidden from us?
The Cancer Industry makes a 200 billion dollars profit every year, which is the main reason why every natural method is hidden from us. Edward Griffin states that the remedies for healing and preventing cancer are around us for a long time, but they were hidden from us. So, why apricot seeds are considered as one of the most effective remedy for cancer?
The apricot is loaded with amygdalin (known as vitamin B-17) and no other plant is a greater source of amygdalin than apricots. This ingredient is very beneficial for our body. It impacts and eliminates the cancer cells and in the same time improving the immune system in order to disable the re-appearance of cancer. The research showed that the Himalayan tribe called ‘Hunza’, never reported a single case of cancer because the apricot is one of the main ingredient in their diet. They consume more than 200 times more Vitamin B17 than the Western population. Amagdylin is consisted of 4 substances: two of them are glucose, one is benzaldyhide, and one is cyanide.
Many people are thinking that cyanide is dangerous for our body. Anyway, the chemistry teaches us that individual constituents of a compound don’t have their own characteristics as long as they are in compound form. Once the B17 is absorbed in the body, it is degraded by the enzyme Rhodanese. The Rhodanese degrades the Hydrogen and Benzaldehyde into 2- by-products, Thiocyanate and Benzoic acid which are useful for supporting healthy cells and creates the metabolic pool production for vitamin B12.
Once the B17 gets to cancer cells, Rhodanese is not presented to degrade it and disable it. There are large levels of Beta-Glucosidase and once vitamin B17 comes in contact with this enzyme, chemical reaction starts where Hydrogen Cyanide and Benzaldehyde acting synergistically in order to create a poison which eliminates cancer cells. This process is also called selective toxicity. “The cancer cells are particularly targeted and killed”. Because there isn’t Rhodanese included in cancer cells, the Cyanide and Benzaldehyde acting as selective toxicity and kill the cancer cells only.
Sadly, Dr. Krebs didn’t patent his discovery because laetrile is not developed chemically by people instead it is a natural ingredient.
