quoted from 3 alternative cancer treatments thread
G. Edward Griffin - A World Without Cancer - The Story Of Vitamin B17 -
There is some logical & compelling evidence to support their ideas that cancer is linked to a vitamin B17 deficiency, due to our modern diets not including this vitamin.
They look at an african tribal people who treasure not the fruit but the seed (apricots i think they were trading in)
For the seed contained this vitamin along with others, there was a statistic mentioned stating that these people have either never had cancer or a phenomenally low percentage, I admit I cannot remember which.

Ever hear of testing errors?
The harmonization of laws, regulations and standards between and among trading partners requires intense, complex, time-consuming negotiations by CFSAN officials. Harmonization must simultaneously facilitate international trade and promote mutual understanding, while protecting national interests and establish a basis to resolve food issues on sound scientific evidence in an objective atmosphere. Failure to reach a consistent, harmonized set of laws, regulations and standards within the freetrade agreements and the World Trade Organization Agreements can result in considerable economic repercussions.

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.

We are talking about Laetrile, a cancer treatment banned in the US because it doesn't work 100% of the time. Oh, bad medicine. If more people tried it it might cure their cancer much cheaper than chemo therapy and radiation. And then who is going to pay for that. Sometimes it doesn't work. Sometimes nothing works to cure cancer, people die.
