Many people take Laetrile / B17 in its natural state: bitter almonds or apricot seeds. And many of these people end up in the emergency wards nearly poisoned to death.
This is because they are not following the directions, or taking the seeds without any supervision. The apricot seeds contain cyanide. Although Laetrile / B17 is less toxic than sugar and 21 times less toxic than aspirin, you can take to much...
Unfortunately, one can take to much of anything — even water. So to question the use of vitamin B17 on the grounds of toxicity is extraordinary as all the drugs used currently in orthodox cancer therapy are extremely toxic.
Here is how it works: Cancer loves sugar. The sugar in the apricot seeds surrounds cyanide. The cancer draws in the sugar, eats it, and releases the cyanide at the cancer cell and only at the cancer cell: sort of like a smart bomb. The problem with this is that some people take too much. While others take enough, but also have a diet high in sugar.
Simply put: you must stop all sugar consumption, cut back drastically on carbohydrates, and then take your apricot seeds. Otherwise, you can do your body a great disservice, and not do anything to battle your cancer.
