I once knew a doctor who was an oncologist (cancer specialist), a professor and a researcher. We were walking on the beach in San Francisco and I asked him to tell me about his cancer research.
“Wonderful!” I said, “You will find it!”
How did I know that, he asked me.
“Because it’s laetrile,” I said.
He stopped in midstride and stared into the sky. He was speechless for several minutes. Then, his eyes still wide, he said slowly, ‘They’ll destroy me!’
I asked him several times “Who? Who will destroy you?’
And when he finally answered, he said, “The AMA… The American Medical Association will destroy me.”
This man also tested garlic at my request and found it too kills cancer cells. But soon after our talk, he changed fields and went into a whole new line of medicine, became quite successful in that field. His name was still on the list of scientists at the A brilliant man who recognized the politics involved.
Full disclosure: I have a dog in this fight.
My mother had one round of chemo, then a second round “just in case”. The second round weakened her heart to the point of death (a small-print but not insignificant side effect). I wished my friend had gone through with his research.
As a grand finale to our talk, my friend explained that he had been on the committee at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that had outlawed laetrile. He said the head of the committee came into the room where everyone was seated around a table, put his finger in the dish of laetrile in the center of the table, lifted it to his mouth, tasted it and spit it out.
“Cyanide!” he said. And that was it. No discussion, no testing. Just unanimous consensus due to his little bit of drama. Nature makes cyanide, indeed. It is in all seeds and nuts and greens and everything that is bitter.
Nature’s cyanide doesn’t poison, but keeps cell division in check. Tests for cancer and for pregnancy both test for that same substance. The Doctors Krebs explained that our bodies need the bitter flavor and yet most americans avoid bitters. Is cancer a “bitter flavor deficiency” disease?
A popular product in Europe is “Swedish Bitters”. What I have noticed is that all cancer “cures” are based on a bitter herb. Since I read Laetrile: Nature’s Answer to Cancer, I have eaten lots of apple seeds & lemon seeds. I eat lots of salads with greens & herbs from my garden. And I always put garlic in the salad dressing.
Bodies are simple machines. Cars need certain kinds of gasoline and oils and other fluids. Bodies work very well on simple ingredients. They are detrimentally challenged by modern “foods” and drugs.
