Amygdalin/ Laetrile/ Apricot Kernels TOXIC?
Oasis of Hope has used amygdalin as a cancer treatment with tens of thousands of patients since the early 1960s. You might say that we know a thing or two about. The cyanide released by amygdalin does not reach toxic levels that can harm or even discomfort patients. A famous researcher named June de Spain conducted a laetrile toxicity study that was published in The Little Cyanide Cookbook (Am. Media). She took three groups of rats. Group one was fed white bread. Group two was fed whole wheat bread. Group three was fed laetrile. After three months, 75 percent of rats that were eating white bread were dead. The white bread survivors were at death's door. The rats that were eating whole wheat bread were in good shape. The rats who were eating laetrile were all alive and in the best condition of the three groups. The conclusion of this FDA sponsored trial was that, "white bread is 70 times more toxic than laetrile." The truth of the matter is that Laetrile/amygdalin presents no risk of toxicity.
