While Vitamin B17 sounds truly new to me, it was not new to the world. According to draxe.com, Vitamin B17 or laetrile was first used in Russia around mid 1800 to help cure cancer. Gained popularity in US by 1970s with more than 70,000 individual users. So it has been existing two centuries ago and became popular a decade before I was born.
Despite, it is not approved by FDA. It is illegal to sell such. Few animal studies shows it has anti-cancer activities but FDA feels the need of more proof.
There is no recommended dose of intake. Can be taken orally or intravenously. However, the problem lies on its legality. Selling is illegal so obtaining is rather hard. It is in black market trade. If you get caught on middle of transaction, the seller will suffer the consequence while you can walk away free.
Selling is prohibited but possession is not. Plus, there is a natural and healthy way to obtain it. It is by eating fruit seeds like apricot, peach and apple. Those fruit seeds naturally contain high levels of laetrile. Feasting on the three fruits would be a wiser choice. Desperately getting your hands on oral preparation might put you in danger. Who knows what you might get is fake.
Intake has side effects. In some cases, it may cause nausea, vomiting, headache, dizziness, skin discoloration, liver damage, low blood pressure, mental confusion and in worse case death.
Maybe these reactions are due to high dose intake. But with the absence of authorities approval and recommended doses, it is hard to know what is less and what is over.
If we consider the words “to much of anything is bad”. The author of “gubayano 30 days treatment protocol” set a limit to it. It results to unwanted side effects when taken continuously beyond 30 days.
Healthytipsworld.net has a post entitled “Vitamin B17 Is Banned Because It Cures Cancer”. It includes a video where a woman testifies she cured five tumors after Vitamin B17 treatment.
I like his title construction because it is exactly how I think. Perhaps, most people feel the same way. Cancer treatment industry is a huge business and proliferation of cheap and natural cures would kill it.
On contrary, after the graviola fruit became popular as natural cancer cure, other fruits, herbs and formulas that claims to cure cancer are popping like mushrooms. It is hard to determine which are true and which are lies. Trying them all relentlessly would do more harm than good.
