Is it true that in America the FDA has taken off Google some of the sites that relate to B17 being a possible preventative and that a man was jailed for selling it as a cure?.
Structure/function claims may also describe a benefit related to a nutrient deficiency disease (like vitamin C and scurvy), as long as the statement also tells how widespread such a disease is in the United States. The manufacturer is responsible for ensuring the accuracy and truthfulness of these claims; they are not pre-approved by FDA but must be truthful and not misleading. If a dietary supplement label includes such a claim, it must state in a "disclaimer" that FDA has not evaluated the claim. The disclaimer must also state that the dietary supplement product is not intended to "diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease," because only a drug can legally make such a claim.
Do you think that high processed foods like white sugar, white bread, McDonnalds, etc contribute to cancer producing cells?

What do you think about Vitamin B17, (Laetrile) and the idea that it may be a cancer preventative
Scientists are using cyanide to attack tumours.
They have tested a two-stage drug that harnesses the power of the dangerous chemical to kill bowel cancer cells in the lab. The researchers, at Imperial College, London, now hope to refine the technology and test it on patients. ...
"The enzyme will circulate around the body and accumulate in the tumour only, and then it will clear from everywhere else. Then the second step is to inject the sugar drug and that itself will circulate around the body but only where the tumour is, where the enzyme is, will you get the cyanide. It will be enough to kill the cancer cells and you will be able to repeat it over and over again until the tumour has gone."
...Dr Deonarain said the cancer cells would not be able to develop resistance to the cyanide in the way they can with some of current cancer therapies.

Q.-What should I take along with the Vitamin B17?
A.- If you have cancer, it is recommended by Dr. Manner (one of the pioneers of the B17 treatment) to take pancreatic enzymes and vitamin C. They can both be found in your local health food store. Just ask the manager for pancreatic enzymes. Their job is to help burn away the negative protein cell wall of the cancer cell for the B17 to get in and fully destroy it. Besides killing the cancer cells, one's organs might be damaged due to cancer development.
Russian scientists have shown Pangamic Acid supplementation can reduce the buildup of lactic acid in athletes, and, thereby, lessen muscle fatigue and increase endurance. Hum, do you think this vitamin might assist with Fibromyalgia?...
B15 helps in the formation of specific amino acids such as methionine. It plays a role in the oxidation of glucose in cell respiration. Like vitamin E, it acts as an antioxidant helping to lengthen cell life through its protection from oxidation. Pangamic Acid mildly stimulates the endocrine and nervous systems, and by enhancing liver function, it helps in the detoxification process.
B15 has been shown to lower blood cholesterol, improve circulation and general oxygenation of cells and tissues, and is helpful for arteriosclerosis and hypertension - some of America's most common diseases.
In Europe, vitamin B15 has been used to treat premature aging because of both its circulatory stimulus and its antioxidant effects. It helps protect the body from pollutants, especially carbon monoxide. Pangamic acid (and possibly DMG) offers support for anyone living in a large polluted city or under high-stress.
