I presume they locked him up because the apricots contain cyanide. Although it is in the form of cyanoglucoside which pose minimal risk to normal cells

Actually from what I've gathered he was sentenced to 5 years not because he "cured" his cancer with apricot seeds but rather because he claimed it to be a "miracle cure" and spam blasted millions of email boxes guaranteeing it would work. And I'm rather sure that if there was really a "cure" for cancer in apricots we would know this by now. One guy has went into remission based on what possibly could be a cure from apricots. But it could also be from a great cancer doc. Good treatments. Or other meds. And misleading cancer patients by telling them that an apricot is going to magically solve their problems is pretty bad in my book.
