The Taste Of Apricot Seeds
They taste like marzipan fruit, those horrid almond paste candies, ugghhh. I made them once a long time ago, I do not understand why anyone would want to eat that candy. At least the apricot seeds had a point to the taste.
I did learn after tasting them I went and looked up the ingredients to almond paste and they are an ingredient so there is the reason for the taste.
Does that taste mean they are raw or not raw?
Pixx, I understand what was said it was just that I have read on several sites claiming that to sell "raw apricot seeds" was illegal, they could sell the "cooked" version tho, but the company I talked to said that was not true, they could be sold raw
I haven't looked up much on the B17/Laetrile as I was only interested in the "natural true sources" of it and not the actual vitamin being extracted and used as a supplement. trying to steer away from the supplements
sorry to confuse you by what i said
I am aware of the "five tastes", and "Terrible" is not one of them. ;)
grr,, the ling to the movie The Future of Food cannot be seen outside of the US....
HULU is for Americans
Studies based upon the U.S. Vital Statistics for fluoridated versus non-fluoridated U.S. cities indicate a significant (greater than 99% confidence level) increase in cancer death rates occurring within the first two years of artificial fluoridation. The nine organ sites affected and their increase above the normal are:
Mouth, 15%; Oesophagus, 48%; Stomach, 22%; Large Intestine, 31%; Rectum, 51%; Kidney, 10%; Bladder and other urinary organs 22%; other organs specifically female: Breast 15%; Ovary and Fallopian Tube, 15%.
Patients having cancers of these organ sites should be advised that they should not continue to drink or cook with fluoridated city water but should substitute bottled spring water or distilled water.
The Hunza's are a tribe in a mountainous area of Afghanistan... There Most Prized possession are their Apricot Trees,,, The Meat of the Apricots are used but the Seeds are considered the Creme de la Crop...
Some Hunzians Have Been Known to Live to the Ripe Old Age of 145 Years Old... Generally speaking 120 Years Is Considered the Norm..
Thank you, but this one seems to be only for us and canadians also.
I can search around, I appreciate that you tried another link though.
I have read about the Hunza's many years ago and been impressed by them, I used to get minerals from that area but have forgotten the special term for it.
I heard that normal agriculture is taking over where the Hunza's live, as in they have started fertilizing with cehmical fertilizersand spraying and entered the cycle that leads to.
What a backwards world it has become,
“Laetrile is goddamned quackery!” Such was the pronouncement of Helene Brown, president of the American Cancer Society of California. (1) As early as 1974, there were at least twenty-six published papers written by well-known physicians who had used Laetrile in the treatment of their own patients and who have concluded (2) that Laetrile is both safe and effective in the treatment of cancer. In addition, there are the voluminous private records of physi-cians who have used it clinically but have never published their findings except in letters to their colleagues or in public lectures or interviews. The American Cancer Society and other spokesmen. for orthodox medicine would have us believe that only quacks and crackpots have endorsed this conclusion. But the doctors who conducted these experiments and those who share their conclusions are not quacks. Here are just a few of the names:
1. “The Pain Exploiters; The Victimizing of Desperate Cancer Patients,” Today’s Health, Nov., 1973, p. 28.
2. A complete list of these papers is contained in The Laetriles/Nitrilosides, op. cit., pp. 84, 85.
In West Germany there is Hans Nieper, M.D., former Director of the Department of Medicine at the Silbersee Hospital in Hanover. He is a pioneer in the medical use of cobalt and is credited with developing the anti-cancer drug, cyclophosphamide. He is the originator of the concept of “electrolyte carriers” in the prevention of cardiac necrosis. He was formerly the head of the Aschaffenburg Hospital Laboratory for chemical circulatory research. He is listed in Who’s Who in World Science and has been the Director of the German Society for Medical Tumor Treatment. He is one of the world’s most famous and respected cancer specialists. During a visit to the United States in 1972, Dr. Nieper told news reporters:
After more than twenty years of such specialized work, I have found the nontoxic Nitrilosides—that is, Laetrile—far superior to any other known cancer treatment or preventative. In my opinion it is the only existing possibility for the ultimate control of cancer.
In the Philippines there is Manuel Navarro, M.D., former Professor of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila; an Associate Member of the National Research Council of the Philippines; a Fellow of the Philippine College of Physicians, the Philippine Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism; and a member of the Philippine Medical Association, the Philippine Cancer Society, and many other medical groups. He has been recognized internationally as a cancer researcher and has over one-hundred major scientific papers to his credit, some of which have been read before the International Cancer Congress. In 1971 Dr. Navarro wrote:
I ... have specialized in oncology [the study of tumors] for the past eighteen years. For the same number of years I have been using Laetrile—amygdalin in the treatment of my cancer patients. During this eighteen year period I have treated a total of over five hundred patients with Laetrile—amygdalin by various routes of administra-tion, including the oral and the I.V. The majority of my patients receiving Laetrile—amygdalin have been in a terminal state when treatment with this material commenced. It is my carefully considered clinical judgment, as a practicing oncologist and researcher in this field, that I have obtained most significant and encouraging results with the use of Laetrile—amygdalin in the treatment of terminal cancer patients, and that these results are comparable or superior to the results I have obtained with the use of the more toxic standard cytotoxic agents.
In Mexico there is Ernesto Contreras, M.D., who, for over three decades, has operated the Good Samaritan Cancer Clinic (now called the Oasis Hospital) in Tijuana. He is one of Mexico’s most distinguished medical figures. He received postgraduate training at Harvard’s Children’s Hospital in Boston. He has served as Professor of Histology and Pathology at the Mexican Army Medical School and as the chief pathologist at the Army Hospital in Mexico City. Dr. Contreras was introduced to Laetrile in 1963 by a terminal cancer patient from the United States who brought it to his. attention and urged him to treat her with it. The woman recovered, and Dr. Contreras began extensive investigation of its properties and use. Since that time he has treated many thousands of cancer patients, most of whom are American citizens who have been denied the freedom to use Laetrile in their own country Dr. Contreras has summarized his experiences with vitamin therapy as follows:
The palliative action [improving the comfort and well-being of the patient] is in about 60% of the cases. Frequently, enough to be significant, I see arrest of the disease or even regression in some 15% (1) of the very advanced cases.
1. Cancer News Journal, Jan. /April, 1971, p. 20. We must bear in mind that these are terminal patients—people who have been given up as hopeless by orthodox medicine. Fifteen percent recovery in that group is a most impressive accom-plishment.
In Japan there is Shigeaki Sakai, a prominent physician in Tokyo. In a paper published in the October 1963 Asian Medical Journal, Dr. Sakai reported:
Administered to cancer patients, Laetrile has proven to be quite free from any harmful side-effects, and I would say that no anti-cancer drug could make a cancerous patient improve fAster than Laetrile. It goes without saying that Laetrile controls cancer and is quite effective wherever it is located.
In Italy there is Professor Etore Guidetti, M.D., of the University of Turin Medical School. Dr. Guidetti spoke before the Conference of the International Union Against Cancer held in Brazil in 1954 and revealed how his use of Laetrile in terminal cancer patients had caused the destruction of a wide variety of tumors including those of the uterus, cervix, rectum, and breast. “In some cases,” he said, “one has been able to observe a group of fulminating and cauliflower-like neoplastic masses resolved very rapidly” He reported that, after giving Laetrile to patients with lung cancer, he had been “able to observe, with the aid of radiography, a regression of the neoplasm or the metastases.”
After Guidetti’s presentation, an American doctor rose in the audience and announced that Laetrile had been investigated in the United States and found to be worthless. Dr. Guidetti replied, “I do not care what was determined in the United States. I am merely reporting what I saw in my own clinic.”(2)
For five years, between 1972 and 1977, Laetrile was meticulously tested at Sloan-Kettering under the direction of Dr. Kanematsu Sugiura. Dr. Sugiura was the senior laboratory researcher at Sloan-Kettering with over 60 years experience. He had earned the highest respect for his knowledge and integrity. He was the perfect person to conduct experiments since his quest for truth blocked out anything else.
Dr. C. Chester Stock, the man in charge of Sloan-Kettering's labora-tory-testing division wrote this about Dr. Suguira, "Few, if any, names in cancer research are as widely known as Kane-matsu Sugiura's”
The official report about Laetrile from Dr. Suguira read: "The results clearly show that Amygdalin significantly inhib-its the appearance of lung metastasis in mice bearing sponta-neous mammary tumors and increases significantly the inhi-bition of the growth of the primary tumors… Laetrile also seemed to prevent slightly the appearance of new tumors… The improvement of health and appearance of the treated animals in comparison to controls is always a common obser-vation.”
This was obviously unexpected and Memorial Sloan Ket-terling Hospital who was formerly drooling over Suguira’s work was now trying to discredit what he had discovered. They switched gears and immediately put new researchers on the case in order to rebuke what he had uncovered. However after all the hoopla; after all the mudslinging targeted at this elderly gentleman, Dr. Sugiura was asked suddenly by a re-porter at a press conference if he stuck to his report. Dr. Sugi-ura clearly and boldly stated, "I stick," even though since his original statement Sloan-kettering was trying to discredit eve-rything which he had done.
Dr. Ralph Moss was the public affairs director for Sloan Kettering at the time. He was told by his superiors time and time again to discredit any findings in favor of laetrile. Other researchers had been assigned to laetrile in order to cast doubt at what Suguira had discovered. These researchers would mimic tests done by Suguira using only ¼ of the amount of laetrile, and to no ones great surprise laetrile failed in such instances. As with any drug or supplement; there must be a threshold amount of the substance given before results can be obtained.
Dr. Moss watched for several years while all of this unfolded. During this time he was told to lie; distort findings and to drive a nail in the Laetrile coffin. Now Ralph Moss was'nt rolling in money; he had two small children and a wife who did not work. He liked his job and felt that he was on a great career path at Sloan Kettering. In Moss’s own words “he loved his job but found himself in a place which was “morally untenable.” However on a Friday in November of 1977, he convened his own press conference and raised charges that Laetrile information had been suppressed and that Suguira’s work proved that it was an effective palliative drug.
Upon returning to work on the following Monday, Dr. Moss found his belongings packed and was told that he was fired. He was then escorted out of the building by armed guards mumbling threats to him. Now this is nothing new. There have been many people over the years who have come to bat for Laetrile only to be shot down by the institution. Hence, a lie told often enough does indeed become the truth.
Why? If it's so good for you, then why hide it?
Uhhh... HELLO??? The Cancer Industry in it Current Form is Worth Tens Of BILLIONS of Dollars Each and Every Year... Mostley Because of all of the people it employs and most of all the Mega Bucks the Pharmacetical companies make off of their PATENTED poisons, Which cost next to Nothing to produce... Apricot seeds are a Natural Produce and can NOT be patented, Not to metion it cost Next to Nothing to purchase...
Look I don't Know if this stuff works or not... I'm just going by the testimnonials of Hundreds of people that you can find on Line...My Question is Why Would These Lay people would Lie...

They could Go out of Business Over Night...
You should do your own investigation because at every turn even after Trials proved this stuff to be for real the Medical Community at large says it is quackery... Sloan-Kettering Did test... The scientest who did hte investigation released the information to the press after SK told him to change his findings...SK fired him...
Then For some reason the FDA Banned transport of the stuff in AMerica...
If You Seek it, you will find all the info you need.... You can start Here... http://worldwithoutcancer.org.uk/success.html
And Here are 20 or 30 videos of Liars Talking about how they cured their cancers...NATURALLY...
I am one of those conspracy therist that thinks The Elite are trying to Kill off Billons of people...
But maybe not... They Give us Vaccines. Pesticides, GMO Food, FLUORIDE, Cloned Animals, Animals shot up with steriods/Growth Hormones... because it is good for us...The FDA put a Ban On BioNatural Hormons Replacment for wemon because the Premarin(WHich Comes from the Piss of Pregnent Maires...Bucause Sythetic EVERYTHING is MUCH Better thatn NATURAL NOTHING which they are trying to get rid of as fast as possible...

Dr. Mark Hyman’s Nine-Point Plan for Real Healthcare Reform—What do Americans Think about Prevention
Mark Hyman, MD—author, practitioner, and educator in functional medicine—has hit the pavement in Washington, DC, to educate lawmakers and policymakers that universal healthcare coverage based on an “outdated 19th- and 20th-century model of medicine will lead us into danger.” In his Huffington Post article, “How to Fix Obama’s Health Plan Before It’s Too Late,” Dr. Hyman suggests the following nine-point plan to “create a culture of health and wellness and transform our healthcare system”:
1. Change reimbursement to include payment for healthcare teams focused on lifestyle treatments for chronic disease and the use of functional medicine, not just for expensive (and often unproven) procedures.
2. Improve research by comparing existing drug- and procedure-based medicine to changes in lifestyle, diet, and other functional and integrative approaches.
3. Transform medical education by including nutrition, lifestyle, and environmental factors as core components of the education of health professionals and physicians.
4. Establish an Institute for Functional Medicine at the federal level that would develop the educational curriculum for medical schools, residencies, postgraduate education, and other health professionals.
5. Improve food policy, agriculture policy, and school and community environments to encourage health by prohibiting food that is known to promote obesity and disease and providing whole, real, fresh foods for our children. Obese teenagers have the same risk of premature death as heavy smokers. We wouldn't feed our dogs cola, burgers, and fries—so why do we feed them to our children?
6. Conduct projects in community health centers that demonstrate how offering inexpensive, nutritious meals (including takeout), recreational facilities, lifestyle counseling/education (like cooking classes), and healthcare based on functional medicine at one location can dramatically improve health outcomes.
7. Impose limits on pharmaceutical and unhealthful food advertising. More than $30 billion is spent on marketing junk and fast food to consumers, including $13 billion targeted at children, and more than $30 billion is spent by the pharmaceutical industry on marketing drugs to physicians (about $30,000 annually per physician). Direct-to-consumer drug advertising also drives prescribing practices based on preferences induced by commercials rather than science.
8. Develop a system of electronic medical records that facilitates 21st-century, systems-based, functional medicine. We shouldn't simply transfer 19th- and 20th-century medical records-keeping systems to an electronic format.
9. Create a White House Office on Wellness, Health Promotion, and Integrative Health as a way to develop an ongoing vehicle for coordination of strategy and policy. It should focus specifically on coordinating and developing policies and programs for lifestyle-based chronic disease prevention and management, integrative healthcare practices, and health promotion.
It is critical that wellness be a part of government healthcare changes. We urge every American to insist their elected official include wellness and its principles in government healthcare reform. Click the link to send your message of support of an important resolution about wellness in healthcare reform. https://secure3.convio.net/aahf/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=U...
The concept of wellness is of course closely allied with the concept of prevention. What do Americans say is their most important healthcare reform priority? Hint: it’s not getting the government to take over healthcare!
A new public opinion poll ( http://www.healthy.net/scr/news.asp?Id=10161&action=print )found that Americans rank prevention as the most important healthcare reform priority. According to Senator Tom Harkin (D–IA), "This survey underscores what I have been saying from the outset: If we pass comprehensive health reform that extends coverage but does nothing to reform our broken system by emphasizing prevention and public health, then we will have failed. And we do not intend to fail. We know that prevention and wellness efforts are a key to reducing costs within a reformed healthcare system. And they will be a centerpiece of the reform effort underway on Capitol Hill."
Other Capitol Hill leaders in the healthcare reform battle agree. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D–MT) added, "This report shows that the American people believe prevention and wellness are the cornerstones of a high-performing healthcare system. And they're right. Today, we spend nearly $800 billion on health problems that are directly linked to lifestyle and poor health habits each year—about one third of our total healthcare spending. Simply put, that's too much. Reforming our system to focus on prevention will drive down costs and produce better health outcomes."
"This poll gives hard evidence that Americans know what works," said Sen. Ron Wyden (D–OR). "Prevention and wellness come first."
But true prevention is not the early-detection screenings followed by more and more prescriptions at a younger and younger age currently being pushed by allopathic medicine. According to Dr. Abraham Verghese, “If your preventive strategy is medical, if it involves us, if it consists of screening, finding medical conditions early, shaking the bushes for high cholesterols, or abnormal EKGs, markers for prostate cancer such as PSA, then more often than not you don’t save anything and you might generate more medical costs.” He might have added that taking more and more prescriptions at a younger and younger age may leave you sicker than you would have been.
True preventive medicine, as practiced by US integrative practitioners, involves advising and counseling the patient to make lifestyle choices that can turn on and turn off genes that predispose us to chronic degenerative disease. True preventive care does not push prescriptions or procedures, and does not generate billions for conventional medicine. It is based on commonsense, science-based lifestyle, diet, and supplement choices that can prevent and even reverse heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and other chronic degenerative disease. And it is a true solution to our nation’s runaway healthcare costs.
Consumers hold the power, guided by their integrative practitioners. Find a practitioner in your area.
In the last week or so I've upped my intake of Apricot Seeds to 20 seeds, Three times a day (Thats 60 seeds per Day)... I'm Still Kicken so I have to assume that these Things are NOT POISONOUS..
I've taken to Blending The seeds First in a ounce of water and then I mix them into Veggie/Fruit Juices...
I also add a bit of stevia and the Bitter taste of the Apricot Seeds is just Nowhere to be found...
I just thought I'd Let You Guys Know That after 3 weeks of taking Large quantities of Poison Apricot Seeds (60 Per Day), I am still alive and well... Of course, If I should Die anytime within the Next month I will Let You Know... Did I mention that I have had ZERO side effects from this Regimen??
So has anyone here honestly experienced "results" like these from a colon cleanser? That looks painful!!!
I've Read Just about Every Testimonial But I Have yet to read one that said it was painful... To the Contrary everyone says it is a life changing experience resulting in Vibrant health, with weight loss and mood stabilisation...
