Do apricot seeds really help in fighting cancer?

Well, for starters; there is no documented scientific evidence that this product has ever worked for any cancer patients. Studies that have been conducted indicate that it doesn't have any adverse effect on tumours and they in fact continue to grow.

Raw apricot seeds, Laetrile, Amygdalin Vitamin B-17!! Well let us just call it by what it really is and that is Cyanide! As there is no such thing as vitamin B-17, it is just a friendly name for Cyanide, as I'm sure people would more easily take a vitamin, as opposed to Cyanide.

However, I believe that there was one case that claimed success with this treatment. but as with many of these quack remedies it was not scientifically monitored or fully documented. Consider the many thousands of people that are treated and saved using proven medicine and treatment, I guess you need to ask yourself are you "feeling lucky" to eat Apricot kernels (Cyanide) on the chance that it may cure and that you may be the second successful case?

Sorry to say there are all too many claims floating around of such miraculous undocumented or scientifically verifiable treatments, which prey on those in need the most!

So, if the Cyanide doesn't kill you, then the untreated cancer probably will!

People don’t realize the significant range of amygdalin content of the apricot kernels being sold as “bitter” varieties. 60 apricot kernels of one variety are all that is required for a daily dose of 2,000 mg of amygdalin. In another variety of “bitter” apricot kernels, 250 kernels would have to be consumed in order to achieve 2,000 mg. However, the people using this variety are still adhering to common dosage guidelines, which means, at best, they’re likely only receiving 120 mg of amygdalin, and that’s at 60 apricot kernels per day.

The variety of bitter apricot kernel is critical to their efficacy. The wrong variety will simply not work.

I don't see anything wrong in hoping that this may help ward off cancer. Aside from curing breast cancer, I once read a blog about how it helps cure prostate cancer. And is believed to be a prostate cancer alternative treatment options.
