People are always searching for alternative methods to conventional cancer treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy. Lately, there has been a lot of noise about the B-17 vitamin Laetrile or Amygdalin. This is a substance commonly found in the seeds of apricots, other fruits, and many nuts.
It’s efficacy has been tested and shows promising results, but legal usage of the drug has been battling the FDA since the 1970s. Court cases in several US states challenged the FDA’s authority to restrict access to what they claimed are potentially lifesaving drugs. More than twenty states subsequently passed laws making the use of Laetrile legal. The US Food and Drug Administration continues to seek jail sentences for vendors marketing laetrile for cancer treatment, calling it a “highly toxic product that has not shown any effect on treating cancer.
Many call this a conspiracy to force cancer victims into expensive treatments. By taking away the right to procure and use natural remedies, our freedom is being once again controlled.
Laetrile carries a huge following of believers and the movement continues to grow. The substance can be purchased via international means or made in your own home. Either way, it is a painless, low cost alternative (or supplement) that offers not only treatment of a deadly disease, but more importantly, it offers hope.
No government has a right to take that from us.
