Vitamin B17 from apricot kernels helps fight cancer
Can apricot kernels help fight cancer?
Apricots are a commonly grown fruit on Tenerife and in many other parts of the world and most people throw the stones away not realising that inside each one is a kernel, which is the best source of Vitamin B17 that is believed to be a good protection against cancer.
Many people claim that this information has been suppressed and that a conspiracy exists to prevent the masses knowing about this. Many conspiracy theorists believe that there are conspiracies that are in operation in the health industry and that real cures are suppressed because money for Big Pharma is made by having a population full of people who have various illnesses. These people are treated with expensive drugs and other therapies such as chemotherapy.

- WHY EAT APRICOT KERNELS
Among the nutrients apricot kernels contain is a substance called amygdalin, which is also known as vitamin B17. This attacks cancer cells, and thus can help prevent cancer from breaking out in our bodies.
Apricot kernels can help fight cancer claim
Vitamin B17 was the subject of great controversy many years ago when it was claimed in 1950 by Dr. Ernst Krebs Jr, that when consumed on a regular basis, this natural substance prevents the body getting cancer, and that it will also fight against existing cases of the disease. Vitamin B17, which also know as laetrile and amygdalin, is found in many fruit pips and stones such as those of the apple, peach, nectarine, cherry and grape. It is also found in some beans and many cereal grasses such as wheat, but apricot kernels are the best source.
In theory it should be easy enough for people to get enough B17 in their diets but in actuality this is usually not the case. Is this one of many potential reasons that cancer is so widespread today? Of course most people discard the stones found in fruit, not realising the valuable substances they contain.
The eating of about seven apricot kernels per day is said to be an excellent way of preventing cancer. Apricot kernels have a bitter almond flavour and are easily removed from the stones of the fruit by using a nutcracker.
Vitamin B17 is an ingredient in many foods in the regular diets of cultures such as the Navajo Indians, the Hunzakuts and the Abkhazians, and these people have never had a reported case of cancer when eating their traditional foods.
The book World Without Cancer, by G. Edward Griffin is all about the amazing properties of B17 and how the pharmaceutical companies, medical establishment and the FDA have tried to stop the public knowing about and using it.
There are many companies selling apricot kernels by mail-order online and they are sold as loose kernels, ground up ones and in capsules or in apricot kernel bars.
