About Steve McQueen - yes, who says that he was killed by eating leatrile. We have no idea what other forms of treatment he was having or even how advanced his cancer was before trying this method. Like Parazapper said too much Vitamin D can be bad for you. Too much oxygen is bad for you too but we need it to stay alive! Too much aspirin can be bad too - death I'm sure!
Quackwatch is ran by someone is too ignorant to see the 'alternative side'. Let them have their fun - probably ran by someone from the FDA, no doubt!
There is no guarantee that leatrile will cure everyone but if caught early it seems to be about 98% effective (so I have read). Early seems to be the key. Not all cancers start off with early symptoms. Ovarian and Pancreatic cancers are amongst the worse silent killers. However, there was a woman who was cured from Pancreatic cancer from eating the apricot seeds. You can read her story here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/jersey/content/articles/2004/08/25/corbin_wheeler_featur...
She was given 6 months to live.
If people only knew all of the ingredients found in their medicine cabinet or prescription drugs they take! I'm sure there are LOTS of poisenous and carcingenic substances in them. The U.S. Government has focused on the 'cyanide' so much they are aimed to scare everyone against them. Do they do this for chemo and it's poisens? Our government is no better. It's time that we all stood up for ourselves because our lives depend on it.
