Vitamins and in fact all micro nutrients have no benefit what so ever.

If there was any scientific evidence that this worked it would be allowed.

Vitamin B17 is just another name for laetrile, a substance found in stone fruit kernels which also contain cyanide.

There is some anecdotal evidence that this is a "cure" but the only person I know who tried it personally was using it as a preventative and died of cancer 2 years after they tried to convince me to take it to "cure" my cancer.

If everything on earth were curable, people would never die.
Does this make any rational sense ?

Laetrile "Vitamin B17 had its chance to be proven effective.
It was not found to be effective in cancer patients,
though quacks made plenty of money from desperate people using this unproven treatment.
Read this if you still have an open mind.

Useless treatments date back to Galen - a Greco-Roman physician in the second century AD.
He devised a concoction called theriac with over 70 ingredients including ground up "toe of owl."
The only effective ingredient was opium.
People thought it worked only because Galen said it would work.
- - - -
Medieval European physicians would grind up Egyptian mummies and serve it to
their patients as a tea made from dessicated dead people.
Natural treatments are an avenue that leads back to ancient or medieval medicine
when nothing was proven scientifically.
These make a fortune for unscrupulous people who peddle them to desperate cancer patients.

Although this is very interesting and scientifically holds much truth. I think your strong position and personal connection to the topic has caused you to present the information with such a biased tone, that you're easily discredited.

The truth is, the pharmaceutical profits currently being made would be heavily diminished if products like hemp oil were proven to cure cancer and similar diseases. The active compounds in hemp oil cannot be patented, therefore Big Pharma has no incentive of using it, while also having major incentives to discredit it (as profits depend on patented chemicals).

As most people know, Cancer is a disease caused by the genetic mutation of cells, which leads to various reactions throughout the body. The root of this fact is that cells are mutated. Now how obvious is it that with all the chemicals and poisonous substances that humans have been consuming, especially over the last 100 years, a cancer epidemic has been introduced and remains growing. Chemically injected meats, pesticide sprayed fruits and vegetables, and nearly all the foods we consume being grown/given fluoridated water (which is now widely known to weaken the immune system), as well as vaccinations containing dangerous levels of Mercury and other toxic metals... is surely damaging and changing the cellular structure of our bodies and DNA we pass on to our children.

The disease of cancer and its consequential epidemic, is one fairly recent in human history, just as is the epidemic of toxins the worldwide human population consumes through eating, drinking, and breathing. My personal opinion is that there is no coincidence of this, and that it is as simple as 'cause and effect.'

So for the people with prior responses. Look into the science and consider that if us humans began consuming less toxic substances, and/or began to reverse the damage we've done to ourselves by discontinuing the use of toxic substances and replacing them with all natural ones... maybe natural cures aren't as ridiculous as you make them seem. After all, a doctor may treat a cancer patient with chemotherapy, but seems to be fine with that patient continuing to eat junk food and hormone treated meat/dairy. Does this not seem counterproductive to curing the patient?

There are numerous discredited sources who support all natural treatments... but for those who are doubtful and refer to this info as "idiotical"... if you are ever diagnosed with cancer, remember that if chemo and all else fails, you may want to try hemp oil and totally natural products anyway... and if they work, consider telling your story and making an effort to reverse the skeptical views that could possibly be supporting the prevention of a cancer cure, instead of promoting its discovery.
