What Amygdalin is
Amygdalin is a phytochemical derived from the seeds of various fruits, including apricots and bitter
almonds. The breakdown of this compound releases cyanide.
It has been used in cancer treatment at various times since the 1800s, but its use today is highly
controversial. United States agencies, such as the National Cancer Institute, consider it ineffective
at treating cancer and dangerous to use.
However, Amygdalin is only available at alternative cancer treatment centers in some parts of
Mexico as well as online suppliers.
Amygdalin, referred to as "surgar-coated cyanide" by physicians in the Rutherford vs FDA court
case, is a carcinogenic compound.
When hydrolyzed within the stomach by certain enzymes, amygdalin releases very minute traces
of hydrogen cyanide.
High concentrations (anything over 100 parts per billion) of hydrogen cyanide in an isolated form
is potentially dangerous.
When taken intervenously, laetrile is cconvertedby cancer cell enzymes into cyanide, which then
kills the cell.
This enzyme is also present in the digestive system. However, minute amounts when ingested in
food that contains protective vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, surgars and fiber have
a low impact upon the system.
This situation"allows the hydrogen cyanide to patrol around making sure that cancer cells never
develop or that existing tumor cells eventually meet a quiet death within the circulating blood plasma."
