NOTES ON VITAMIN B17

These notes are provided for informational purposes only and are sourced from the book: Cancer: Why we're still dying to know the truth, by Phillip Day, Credence publications.

Apricot and peach seeds contain about 2% of vitamin B17 by weight. The seeds of apple, prunes, plums, cherries and nectarines are equally rich in B17. Other sources of vitamin B17 are millet, buckwheat, macadamia nuts, bamboo shoots, mung beans, lima beans, butter beans and cassava. There is no B17 in westernised citrus fruit seeds.

The Hunza's have been cancer free for 500 years. There diet contains about 50-75 mg of vitamin B17 each day. Philip Day in his book, Cancer: Why we're still dying to know the truth, states that he sometimes consumes 60 apricot seeds a day but he also cautions that a good rule of thumb is to eat no more of the seeds than you would whole fruit.

7 gm of seeds per day for life are recommended by Dr Krebs as a nutritional supplement for those exercising cancer prevention. This equates to 10-12 of the larger seeds or 20-25 of the smaller seeds. 20-28 gm of seeds per day are recommended by Dr Krebs as a nutritional supplement for clinical cancer sufferers. If nausea is experienced when taking seeds in this quantity then the dosage should be reduced. (*P164).

The seeds should be prepared as for all nuts, grains and seeds to remove the antinutrients. Either grind the seeds into a flour and make a sourdough cake or sprout for 2 days as for mung bean sprouts.

There are over 100,000 documented cases of patients receiving laetrile. (*P 149)

Foods rich in vitamin B17 are*: "Apple seeds, apricot kernels bamboo shoots, barley, beet tops, bitter almond, blackberries, boysenberries, brewers yeast, brown rice, buckwheat, cashews, cherry kernels, cranberries, eucalyptus leaves, currants, fava beans, flax seeds, garbanzo beans, gooseberries, huckleberries, lentils, lima beans, linseed meat, loganberries, macadamia nuts, millet, millet seed, peach kernels, pecans, plum kernels, quince, raspberries, sorghum cane syrup, spinach and sprouts."
