Laetrile and Information on
Since Laetrile is not considered an
approved treatment for cancer in the United States, websites that sell it as a
cure for cancer are being shut down. These sites include David Arjona's www.worldwithoutcancer.com
and Jason Vale's www.apricotsfromgod.com.
To read our opinion out why laetrile and other natural substances used in
alternative-cancer therapies are not readily available in the U.S., go to our

Recently we wrote a letter to the
editor of the LA Times regarding an article in their newspaper on
Laetrile. Click here

The Cancer Cure Foundation did an internet search
and found some websites that sell apricot kernels (a natural source of B17)
and laetrile. We do not have additional information about these companies, but
if you do an internet search, you can research these companies and find
additional information and sources. Be aware, however, that these companies will
probably not be able to give you information about using these substances to
Suppliers of kernels include:
Suppliers of laetrile include:
If you hear of others sources, or if you find out
these sources no longer make kernels or laetrile available, you can leave a
message with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, there are many foods that contain
Vitamin B17. These include: Apple seeds, alfalfa sprouts, apricot
kernels, bamboo shoots, barley, beet tops, bitter almond, blackberries,
boysenberries, brewer’s yeast, brown rice, buckwheat, cashews, cherry kernels,
cranberries, 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, sprouts (alfalfa, lentil, mung bean, buckwheat,
garbanzo), strawberries, walnuts, watercress, yams.
Keep in mind that Vitamin B17 helps prevent
cancer, but if one already has cancer, a complete protocol is required including
diet, enzymes, exercise, and supplementation, as prescribed by a
physician. In addition, some conditions, such as some brain tumors and basal
cell carcinomas may not be helped with laetrile protocol. It is best to work
with an alternative physician to be sure you are using the best approach to
treat your particular condition. Currently, our data shows that the following
doctors and clinics are offering laetrile as part of their therapy:
We hope to have write ups on all of these clinics
soon. If you know of any other clinics that offer laetrile as part of their
protocol, be sure to let us know. In addition, an oncologist can prescribe
laetrile. Lorraine Rosenthal of The Cancer Control Society tries to keep on top
of doctors who use laetrile - 323-663-7801.
