VITAMIN B-17 AMAZON REVIEW: "This product is a must to add to your diet because people need this. This product is largely suppressed in the U.S. because it is beneficial to ones diet. The medical industry does NOT want anybody to know how beneficial and important this is to have in ones diet. If your not familiar with vitamin B-17 then you need to look at G. Edward Griffin's A World Without Cancer... series. Highly recommend this." (70 of 74 people found the following review helpful) VITAMIN B-17 AMAZON REVIEW: "I was told I had leukemia in July, 2011. I am 57 Yrs old, non-smoker, never sick. I went through 2 sets of Chemo. I had heard about B17 in the book "World without Cancer", purchased through Amazon. The First Chemo showed no effect. I started taking 1000mg per day of B17, with multi vitamins. They give you nothing to counter the damage the chemo does to your system. The Second Chemo results were the same. No positive effect. They said more chemo would not help. Radiation therapy, I declined. So I was sent home with 3 weeks or more to live. My bone marrow was full of cancer cells and also in my blood system. This was Sept. 2011. I thought at the time that the B17 had at least helped with the side effects. I did feel very weak, could not taste food, had 2 bad rashes from anti-biotics. But I never got sick. I was sent home. Final arrangments were made, but slowly I started feeling better, wounds would heal and in November, I was doing small things around the house. In Dec. 2012 I was checked. They found nothing in my blood or bone marrow and was told I was in remission. I declined any more Chemo. This is Feb. 2012, and I am still short of breath, but can do minor things. I can't prove how much the B17 had an effect on me, or how long I will be in remission. But I'm glad I ordered it. Maybe God's will or God's gift."

Thereafter, 27 U.S. states legalized the use of amygdalin within those states." I BEAT CANCER WITH VITAMIN B17 http://youtu.be/CyvSmhrlJwE A World Without Cancer (HQ) - The Story of Vitamin B17 - G.

So seeing the Wikipedia link, naturally I checked it and came across this gem.
The metabolism of amygdalin produces hydrogen cyanide, a potent toxin. Beta-glucosidase, one of the enzymes that catalyzes the release of cyanide from amygdalin, is present in the human small intestine and in a variety of common foods. This leads to an unpredictable and potentially lethal toxicity when amygdalin or laetrile is taken orally. Ingestion of purified amygdalin or apricot kernels can cause severe toxicity and death due to cyanide poisoning. Numerous case reports in medical literature describe serious cyanide poisoning in patients who ingested laetrile as a cancer treatment. Blood cyanide concentrations may be measured as a means of confirming the diagnosis in hospitalized patients or to assist in the forensic investigation of a fatal overdose.
Some laetrile promoters have claimed that the cyanide generated by laetrile is immediately harmlessly detoxified by the mitochondrial enzyme rhodanese into thiocyanate. However, these claims are false. First, because thiocyanate is also toxic, although to a lesser degree. Second, the body only can use the small amount of rhodanese that is present in the blood, regardless of the stores present in kidneys and liver. Third, the limited factor in this conversion are the stores of cystine, cysteine, and other sulfur compounds, which are rapidly depleted in laetrile poisoning. Fourth, blood analysis show undetoxified cyanide in persons poisoned with laetrile or with apricot kernels.
On the FB page, there is an argument going on and the logical ones don't seem to be making at dent. At this point I'm tired of arguing with people and if they can't even check their sources, I'm tempted to say let them naturally select themselves out of the population.
Here is the product.
