Forty Foods Rich in Vitamin B17 and Cancer Prevention Laetrile (i.e. amygdalin or Vitamin B17) therapy is one of the most popular and best known alternative cancer preventions.
Laetrile works by killing cancer cells and building the immune system to fend off future outbreaks of cancer. It uses two different methods for killing cancer cells. It involves a strict diet (as do all cancer treatments) and several supplements.
What is Metabolic Therapy ?
(Excerpted from the book B17 Metabolic Therapy in prevention and control of cancer a technical manual compiled by Philip Day)
The following information is compiled from treatments carried out by some cancer clinics around the world. These treatments are widely believed by many in the alternative cancer treatment field to be most effective in combating cancers and / or acting as strong cancer preventatives in human and animal systems. No claims are made or implied in providing the following information. The reader must use his discretion and a qualified medical practitioner should always be consulted in the matter of treatment decisions for any cancer.
"If you have cancer, the most important single consideration is to get the maximum amount of Vitamin B17 into your body in the shortest period of time. This is secondary to the medical skill involved in administering it, which is relatively minimal." Ernest T. Krebs Jr.
"Metabolic Therapy, put simply is the use of natural food products and vitamins to prevent and treat cancer by building a strong immune system. The key to stopping the cancer growth doesn't lie in traditional cancer treatments like chemo and radiation therapy or surgery, but in an approach that works with the body instead of against it."
Once the body is cleansed of unnatural substances (detoxification) and vitamins are administered to build the immune system, enzymes are given to begin breaking down the protein shell which surrounds the cancer growth and protects it from the body's immune system. Raw glandular products are also used to augment the body's natural glands. Vitamin B17 (laetrile) and Vitamin A are then given to the patient to work with the enzymes and immune system to destroy the cancer cell.
Initially Laetrile was looked upon as useless, which it is when used in isolation. However, in Metabolic Therapy, it works with enzymes, vitamins and the immune system to destroy the already weakened cancer." - Dr. Harold W Manner.

Please provide information on these 40 foods according to their concentration of B17. And does cooking destroy the B17. Thank you.
Hi there, B17 is not destroyed by heat, but it is best to eat most of these foods raw such as mung bean sprouts. Foods like millet will have to be cooked. Here's a link to a site that lists the B17 content in foods. http://www.alternative-health-group.org/amygdalin.php

If I may refer you to the link below from Wikipedia, it seems Vitamin B17 is a different story altogether;
Most cancers can be prevented through healthy eating and living. The Med Life Diet is a book which I wrote to help one develop healthy eating and healthy lifestyle habits and attitudes for life. It is an easy step by step system which one can adopt to help improve one's health and also for cancer prevention... For more details please visit: www.themedlifediet.com
Thanks for sharing this quote from Ernest T. Krebs Jr. I didn't realize that vitamin B17 can do so much to help treat cancer. It is smart to use your body's own defenses against the cancer cells by changing your diet. I wonder if this approach is best used on its own, or if it can successfully be used in conjunction with traditional treatments. Either way, I think it is a smart thing to add to your diet.
