"After more than twenty years of such specialized work, I have found the non-toxic Nitrilosides - that is, Laetrile - far superior to any other known cancer treatment or preventative" - Dr. Hans Nieper
"The anti-cancer effect of amygdalin was demonstrated in Mexico by government sponsored research under Dr. Mario Soto De Leon and its use is legal. Dr. Soto was the first medical director of the Cydel Clinic in Tijuana. It is very important that it be prepared and administered correctly in sufficient dosage or it will not be effective. The trial performed at the Mayo Clinic in the early 80's involved the use of the racemic mixture rather than the levo-rotary form and thus was only 10% of the strength required. In spite of this, towards the end of the experiment, the patients began to show improvement, but it was discontinued and declared ineffectual" - Dr. Robert Willner M.D.
"So here is a bureau of the Federal Government which, a short time before, had said that the reason Laetrile did not work was because it did not release hydrogen cyanide in the presence of cancer cells. Now, when they find that it does, they say that it is toxic. When offered an opportunity to present evidence of Laetrile's toxicity in Federal Court, they admitted that they had none." - Philip Binzel Jr. M.D. (from 'Laetrile And The Life Saving Substance Called Cyanide')
"I have specialized in oncology (the study of tumours) 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 administration, 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 judgement, as a practising 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." - Dr Manuel Navarro M.D.
"Administered in 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" - Dr. Shieaki Sakai
In Italy there is a 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 tumours 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." - G. Edward Griffin (From 'World Without Cancer')
'In 1975, Dr. Kanmatsu Sugiura was, and had been for some years, one of the most respected cancer research scientists at Sloan-Kettering. In working with cancerous mice, Dr. Suigura found that, when he used Laetrile on these mice, seventy-seven per cent of them did not develop a spread of their disease (metastatic carcinoma). He repeated this study over and over for two years. The results were always the same. Dr. Suigura took his findings to his superiors at Sloan-Kettering, but his study was never published. Instead, Sloan-Kettering published the results of someone else who claimed that he had used Dr. Suigura's protocol. This someone else's study showed that there were no beneficial effects from the use of Laetrile. Dr. Suigura complained. He was fired. A book was written about all of this entitled 'The Anatomy Of A Cover-Up'. This book has all the actual results of Dr. Suigura's work. These results do, indeed, show the benefit of Laetrile. Dr. Suigura stated in this book, "It is still my belief that Amygadlin cures metastases." Amygadalin is of course the scientific name for Laetrile. - Philip E. Binzel Jr. M.D. (From 'Alive And Well')
