During his lecture, Philip gave a list of foods containing vitamin B17. (Remember that while apricot, plum, peach and apple seeds contain higher concentrations, these other foods contain B17 as well)

New discovery in alternative cancer therapy
Philip Day has written an excellent book, "CANCER - Why we're still dying to know the truth". He outlines the exciting discovery of the use of vitamin B17 in curing cancer. Here are some extracts from his book:
"During the 1950s, after many years of research, a dedicated biochemist by the name of Ernst T. Krebs, Jr., isolated a new vitamin that he numbered B17 and called 'laetrile'. As the years rolled by, thousands became convinced that Krebs had finally found the complete control for all cancers, a conviction that even more people share today."
"'Nitrilosides' are natural foods rich in Vitamin B17. This vitamin is characterised by a large group of water-soluble, essentially non-toxic, sugary compounds found in over 800 plants, many of which are edible. one of the most common sources of B17 is found in plentiful supply within the kernels (seeds) of many non-citrus fruits, such as cherries, nectarines, peaches, plums and apples. However it is within the seed of the humble apricot that the highest concentrations of B17 can be found, up to 2 to 2.5 percent by weight in most varieties."
Krebs' studies showed that when a human or animal system ingests sufficient amount of laetrile (or in its natural form, hydrocynacic acid), this substance becomes selectively toxic to cancer cells."
Krebs was aware that indigenous peoples consuming vast quantities of hydrocyanic acid were not experiencing any harmful side-effects. On the contrary, their lives were characterised by abundant good health and extreme longevity.

Phillip Day's research shows that people with cancer should consume apricot kernels in large quantities.
Phillip Day suggests 40-50 per day, but build up to this amount gradually. People who are free of cancer and want to avoid it should take 8-10 per day. For cancer patients, it is important to consume paw paw and pineapple each day, as the natural enzymes strip the coating on the cancer cells, so that the B17 in the kernels can work. Vitamins A and E are also important for enhancing the work of the kernels.
Currently Paul is taking 15 kernels per day, (5 after each meal), and he eats paw paw and pineapple each morning. We have found a good source of kernels in Australia. Contact us for details.
Acid or alkaline?
Animal foods are acid forming and cause our bodies to be acidic.
Raw fruit and vegetables are alkaline forming and create an alkaline environment.
The body must be alkaline to function properly.
Cancer cells cannot develop in an alkaline environment.
