This Vitamin Is Banned In The U.S. - Even Though It Can Destroy Cancer Cells

While vitamin B17 has long been known as a cancer treatment, its use has been quite controversial.

The controversy about vitamin B17 stretches back to the 1970s. Ralph Moss joined the faculty at New York's Sloan-Kettering research center in 1974, and the current focus of the research was testing Laetrile, a form of vitamin B17.

It turned out, however, that Laetrile was determined to be "potentially harmful," and Sloan-Kettering's Board of Directors canceled the research project.

Moss believed that Laetrile's potential was being swept under the rug, and he called a press conference in which he accused his employers of conspiring to cover up the research on B17. Despite his efforts, however, Laetrile was banned in the US and is still banned today.

An official report from the FDA states B17 is highly toxic. Not all physicians, however, agree with this conclusion.

G. Edward Griffin has researched B17 extensively and notes he has "found no statements of demonstrated pharmacological harmfulness of amygdalin [another name for
B17] to human beings at any dosages recommended or employed by medical doctors in the United States and abroad."

B17 cannot be used for research in the US, but other researchers around the globe continue to move forward.

Researchers discovered in 2003 that amygdalin from peach pits had some influence on tumor growth.

Another study in 2006 proved that B17 triggers a process of cell death in cancer cells.

International researchers also used B17 to treat cervical cancer in 2013, and another clinical trial had some success using B17 against bladder cancer in 2014.
