Amygdalin, or Laetrile, is lethal to cancer cells. This is because cancer cells secrete the enzyme beta-glucosidase which releases the poisonous cyanide otherwise locked in laetrile, into the inside of the cell.
In the absence of cancer cells the toxic cyanide is not released.
Normal cells have an enzyme called rhodanase which effectively renders the cyanide molecule inactive.
At Reno Integrative Medical Center, we administer B-17, Laetrile, in the context of a full-protocol and never use it alone. Truly effective cancer treatment consists of using synergistic compounds together in a way that makes them far more powerful than if used as individual agents.
