A World Without Cancer

This is a video adaptation of a documentary filmstrip which explains
the scientific rationale for Laetrile therapy. It presents evidence
that cancer, like scurvy or pellagra, is a deficiency disease. It is
not caused by the presence of some mysterious virus or X- factor, but
by the lack of an essential food factor which, increasingly, is
deleted from the menus of modern man. The native diets of those
cultures where cancer is rare is examined and found to be 200 times
more rich in this substance than the diet of industrialized society.
The missing food factor is called amygdalin or vitamin B17, but in its
concentrated and purified form developed specifically for cancer
therapy, it is known as Laetrile. A theoretical model for the
biological action of Laetrile is presented. Included are dramatic case
histories of terminal cancer patients who have recovered using
Laetrile therapy. Based upon the book of the same name.

    Just for your information, amygdalin has been proved many times to be completely ineffective at curing cancer. It is also a highly toxic substance that can lead to death by cyanide poisoning.

    Marketing and selling laetrile as a treatment for cancer will certainly lead you jail.

      “Proven many times” by who, the FDA? Is that the same FDA that would outlaw anything that goes against corporate interests? 

      People all over the world get cured from cancer by using remarkably simple and natural treatments. It’s a shame how many people take the word of the FDA as the gospel truth.

    oh the FDA, I am sure now that supporters of this drug are onto something, thanks for saying…

    • meh

      Go ahead then and take leatrile. If you really want to believe a 36 years old documentary made by an a-hole who didn’t study medicine and talks about a miracle cure for cancer that has been disproved by scientific tests since the 70s, your death won’t be a big loss for humanity.

      • Mr Greenmoon

        So you are saying becuase info is 36 years old its false ? You’re retarded ! Think about that one!

      • Dima

        hes right, there are controlled studies not limited to the ones supported by FDA that proved that laetrile didn’t work, and multiple cases where people have died because it did not stop their cancer. Laetrile in particular is used as a spin off for black market distributors too. Type in Laetrile in pubmed.org and do some research, make your own objective decisions…

    My friends uncle used apricot seeds rich in B17 to successfully shrink a cancerous tumour, so this obviously works to some degree.

    Thank you! This is the one that I am looking for

    Alot of talk, not alot of proof. Worth the watch, but not worth remembering.

  • paul andrews

    Proof and evidence was abundant within the book. The fact is that laetrile will transform malignant tumors into benign.
    Read the book if you care to know the truth behind the scenes.

    Dear G. Edward Griffin,

    It is regrettable that I must send you this message. Although belated it may be the notion is valid to the utmost. As I am sure you are aware the majority of your information in this motion picture presentation, is complete and utter rubbish. You should not only be ashamed of yourself but you should spend your days reading books and manuscripts. There is a certain pair of bananas and I believe they wear pyjamas you should endeavour to observe. They make it easy, they present themselves on the television every night. They will teach you some friendship skills which you can utilise to find yourself a teacher. With your skills you will manipulate the poor unsuspecting learned person into schooling your ass on all the issues wrong with this video.

    Yours truly
    Science

    Advocates for laetrile assert that there is a conspiracy between the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the pharmaceutical industryand the medical community, including the American Medical Association and the American Cancer Society, to exploit the American people, and especially cancer patients. Advocates of the use of laetrile have also changed the rationale for its use, first as a treatment of cancer, then as a vitamin, then as part of a “holistic” nutritional regimen, or as treatment for cancer pain, among others, none of which have any significant evidence supporting its use. Despite the lack of evidence for its use, laetrile developed a significant following due to its wide promotion as a “pain-free” treatment of cancer as an alternative to surgery and chemotherapy that have significant side effects. The use of laetrile led to a number of deaths.[22] The FDA and AMA crackdown, begun in the 1970s, effectively escalated prices on the black market, played into the conspiracy narrative and helped unscrupulous profiteers foster multi-million dollar smuggling empires.[23]

    Some North American cancer patients have traveled to Mexico for treatment with the substance, for example at the Oasis of Hope Hospital in Tijuana.[24] The actor Steve McQueen died in Mexico following surgery to remove a stomach tumor having previously undergone extended treatment for pleural mesothelioma (a cancer associated with asbestos exposure) under the care of William D. Kelley, a de-licensed dentist and orthodontist who claimed to have devised a cancer treatment involving pancreatic enzymes, 50 daily vitamins and minerals, frequent body shampoos, enemas, and a specific diet as well as laetrile.[25]

    Laetrile advocates in the United States include Dean Burk, a former chief chemist of the National Cancer Institute cytochemistrylaboratory,[26] and national arm wrestling champion Jason Vale, who claimed that his kidney and pancreatic cancers were cured by eating apricot seeds. Vale was convicted in 2004 for, among other things, fraudulently marketing laetrile as a cancer cure.[27] The court also found that Vale had made at least $500,000 from his fraudulent sales of laetrile.[28]

    The US Food and Drug Administration continues to seek jail sentences for vendors marketing laetrile for cancer treatment,[citation needed]calling it at the time of Vale’s 2004 conviction, a “highly toxic product that has not shown any effect on treating cancer.”
