The answers provided for the questions asked are taken from the book World Without Cancer (WWC), by G. Edward Griffin, word for word, except where noted.
Q.- How much can I take?
Vitamin B17 is water soluble and non-toxic. It is as safe as sugar or salt. Some people get nauseous if they take too many seeds at one time, the same as one would if one drank too much salt water at one time.
If this is the case, take less amounts of the vitamin B17 tablets at one time but more often throughout the day. If you presently have cancer, you can have ten of the 500 mg tablets per day for the first month.
If you find that you are getting nauseous, cut the tablets in half and have 1/2 every waking hour, slowly building up to the ten per day. It is a good idea to have a little food in the stomach just before taking the vitamin.
When you reach the maximum dosage of vitamin B17, you need to maintain on that dosage for 21-30 days. After the initial 21-30 days, a maintenance dose of 1 - 3 tablets per day for the following three months is the proper protocol. My opinion is to eat the seeds for the rest of your life. See Prevention below.
Prevention: If you do not have cancer, one or two of the 100 mg tablets per day is fine. Dr. Krebs states the whole food is the best. This means you MUST eat 7-10 seeds (kernels) a day no matter how bitter you think they are. Is your life worth saying "They are too bitter, I won't eat them?" (Editors Note).
Remember, only the apricot kernels have the enzymes that make the laetrile work in your body. If the apricot kernels make you sick or you absolutely will not eat them, then you will have to supplement with several other vitamin/enzyme tablets to make up for what you loose with not consuming the apricot seeds (kernels).
Q.-Can I take B17 and chemo together?
I have the seeds and the vitamin together?
Consider, scientists have only identified about a thousand vitamins and minerals. They say that there are hundreds of thousands that are still not identified yet. That means that you cannot just be a supplement person.
One study shows scientists feeding one group of rats all of the vitamins and minerals known. The second group was given garbage. The vitamin and mineral eating group was skinny and sickly after a couple of weeks but the garbage eating group was, of course, strong and healthy.
At the same token a garbage eating group with supplements added can be even stronger. This study means always eat the whole foods along with the vitamins as the great Dr. Krebs states.
Q.-What should I take along with the Vitamin B17?
Pancreatic enzymes occur naturally in:
Their job is to help burn away the negative protein cell wall of the cancer cell for the B17 to get in and fully destroy it.
Besides killing the cancer cells, one's organs might be damaged due to cancer development. It is very important to nurture the rest of your body back to working condition.
Here is a list of helpful natural foods you can take along with Vitamin B17:
There are many different foods and herbs that have healing properties. It is common knowledge among scientist and holistic doctors that combinations of therapies are more effective than just one. Put together what you can with, of course, the key center, the middle core...the seed.
I take vitamin B17 with chemotherapy or radiation?
If you are about to have an operation where the cancer cells are going to be disturbed, it is imperative that you take the seeds and the vitamin B17 to kill any of the free cells. Vitamin B17 can only help. It lowers blood pressure and is one of the healthiest foods on earth; it strengthens the arteries and heart and, of course, targets the cancer cell.
Q.-How long does it take for the cancer to die out?
If you would like to speak to others that are completely better, please call our office for those that had your specific type of cancer. You must already be in the program for these numbers.
Q.-Can it help me?
A.-If you have first been diagnosed and you're starting B17 therapy without chemo or radiation treatment, you should be fine. Dr. Krebs claimed a 98% success rate and the Del Rio Hospital of Tijuana claims nearly a 100% success rate with virgin cases. A virgin case is an individual that has not had chemo or radiation.
cases where the individual has had chemo and/or radiation, it depends
on how far the cancer has spread and what damage has been done by
the chemo and radiation. In either case, it is imperative for one
to implement vitamin B17 into their daily consumption.
don't medical doctors use vitamin B17?
After attending years of medical school, internship and finally working in a hospital, most doctors only want to hear of the treatments that they're allowed to administer, even if they are not successful. Only researchers can know the truth, those that seek knowledge. Start with Mr. Griffin's book "World Without Cancer." This book is one of a few that tell the true story of vitamin B17 and will guide you in further research that proves the simple answer to cancer.
Q.-What is the attitude of the food and drug bureau of the State of California regarding B17 and/or laetrile?
Q.-Have any charges been brought against Medical Doctors (M.D.) for treating their patients with B17 and/or laetrile?
When Dr. Jones' case came up for review, the political pressures were so great that Dr. Levine felt compelled to resign from his post rather than come out openly in support of Dr. Jones and his patients.
Q.-Why is B17 and/or Laetrile banned in the USA by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)?
Q.-Has Laetrile ever been tested by the FDA?
Q.-As of 1974 was anyone taking Laetrile on a daily basis after all the publicity on the subject?
Q.-How did Dr. Ernst T. Krebs, Jr. discover that B17 and/or Laetrile could fight and control cancer? Why is it called B17?
He identified this compound as part of the nitriloside family which occurs abundantly in nature in over 1200 edible plants and found virtually in every part of the world.
It is particularly prevalent in the seeds of those
Also contained in grasses:
It is difficult to establish a clear-cut classification for a nitriloside. Since it does not occur entirely by itself but rather is found in foods, it probably should not be classified as a food. Like sugar, it is a food component or a food factor.
Nor can it be classified as a drug, as much as it is a natural, non-toxic, water-soluble substance entirely normal to and compatible with human metabolism. The proper name for a food factor that contains these properties is a vitamin.
Since this vitamin normally is found with the B-complexes, and since it was the 17th such substance to be isolated within this complex, Dr. Krebs identified it as vitamin B17.

all the foods that we buy have the vitamins put back?
I see "enriched" on all the labels. Doesn't this mean that
the food contains all the vitamins we need to be healthy?
Q.-Don't all our foods have all the vitamins we need including B17?
Q.-I have heard something about the Hunza. What is this about?
Visiting medical teams from the outside world report that there never has been a case of cancer in Hunza. It is interesting to note that the average Hunza diet contains over two hundred times more nitriloside than the average American diet. In fact, in that land where there is no such thing as money, a man's wealth is measured by the number of apricot trees he owns.
prince happily confirmed it and then described how it was not uncommon
to eat 30 to 50 apricot seeds as an after-lunch snack. These often
account for an excess of 75,000 International Units of
vitamin A per day as well as over 150 mg of vitamin B17.
women of Hunza are renowned for their strikingly smooth skin even
into advanced age. Generally, their faces appear 15 to 20 years
younger than their counterparts in other areas of the world. They
claim that their beauty secret is merely the apricot oil which they
apply to their skins almost daily.
It is important to know that when the Hunzakuts leave their secluded land and adopt the menus of other countries, they soon succumb to the same diseases and infirmities, including cancer, as the rest of mankind.
Q.-What is a trophoblast?
Q.-What happens with our body system if:
A.-Nature has provided a backup mechanism, a second line of defense, that has an excellent chance of doing the job even if the first line should fail. It involves a unique chemical compound that literally poisons the malignant cell while nourishing all the rest.
is vitamin B17 which is found in those natural foods containing nitriloside.
It is also known as amygdalin and has been used extensively for well
over a hundred years. In a concentrated and purified form developed
by Dr. Krebs specifically for cancer therapy, it is known as Laetrile.
Q.-Who developed the trophoblastic thesis of cancer?
Q.-What are the qualifications of Dr. Ernst T. Krebs, Jr.?
did graduate work at the University of California from 1943-1945 and
later at the University of Mississippi, researching mostly in pharmacology.
He is the author of many scientific papers including "The
Unitarian or Trophoblastic Thesis of Cancer," and "The
Nitrilosides in Plants and Animals." He was the science director
of John Beard Memorial Foundation.
is the discoverer of vitamin B15 (pangamic acid). By 1950 Dr.
Krebs, Jr. had identified the specific composition of vitamin B17,
had isolated it into crystalline form and given it the name Laetrile,
and had tested it on animals to make sure it was not toxic.
Q.-How did Dr. Krebs, Jr. determine that B17 (Laetrile) is not toxic to humans?
Q.-What is B17 composed of?
Q.-What about the toxicity of cyanide?
Q.-This "locking" thing. Is there any other compound like this?
Q.-How then does B17 work to kill cancer cells?
In fact, these two working together are at least a hundred times more poisonous than either of them separately; a phenomenon know in biochemistry as synergism. Fortunately, the "unlocking enzyme" is not found to any dangerous degree anywhere in the body "except at the cancer cell," where it always is present in great quantity, sometimes at levels in excess of one hundred times that of the surrounding normal cells.
result is that the vitamin B17 is unlocked at the cancer cell,
releases its poisons to the cancer cell and ONLY TO THE CANCER CELL.
Q.-How come the cyanide does not poison us?
The reason is that it has the ability to neutralize cyanide by converting it instantly into by-products that actually are beneficial and essential to health. This enzyme is found in great quantities in every part of the body EXCEPT the cancer cell which, consequently, is not protected.
Q.-Can an overdose of B17 be harmful or fatal?
