Natural cancer treatments: Almonds and Lima beans may fight cancer
An interesting approach to cancer prevention was discussed on The Savage Nation, Michael Savage's popular talk-radio program. Lima beans, almonds, and apple seeds all have cyanide as an ingredient which may serve to "kill" cancer cells that have begun to spin off and form tumors in the body.
Regular listeners know that health information discussed on this program is not just baseless radio chat because Michael Savage has an extensive list of degrees in related fields. He holds a B.S. in Biology, a MS in Medical Botany, a MS in Medical Antropology, and a PHD. in Epidemiology and Nutrition Science
Dr. Savage stated that the above theory was part of a system of cancer treatment used extensively in California in the 1960's. A quick survey of related topics on the Internet reveals a potentially significant effect from eating these foods which have small amounts of a cyanide-like substance. There are also mentions of a danger of consuming too much of this potentially deadly ingredient, which is true of many everyday substances.
One thing is certain: when someone is diagnosed with cancer, alternative treatment plans become quite attractive. Many feel that the medical community is not as open as they could be to alternative methods for battling cancer.
