An Apple a day- and be sure and eat the seeds.
Most of us have heard the term "an apple a day will keep the doctor away". There is an amount of truth to this old saying. If you also eat the seeds from some fruits you may achieve some protection from cancer. I usually eat the seeds from the apples that I eat because they contain cyanogen. A cyanogen generates cyanide. Cyanide is lethal in large quantities, but tiny amounts are normal to normal cells- but in some scientific studies is has been shown to kill cancer cells.
Scientific studies have shown that over 30 native herbs found from around the world with cyanogens in them are noted for having anti-cancer properties.
The cell's of our body has the enzyme rhodanese that will detoxify cyanides that form naturally in a cell. A tiny level of the enzyme rhodanese is normal in our bodies. It seems that cancer cells lack this enzyme, so if you eat a small quantity of bitter almonds or apple seeds, or apricot seeds or other fruit seeds with cyanogens, the cancer cells may be affected when they come in contact with this enzyme, rhodanese. Your normal cells are are fine because they are protected by the enzyme rhodanese.
I would not trust in apple seeds or the seeds from any fruit alone to cure me from cancer, but I do believe that there are many things that protect our bodies in the early stages of many diseases. So I'm going to continue to eat my apple seeds. I would love to find a bitter almond tree to add to my orchard. I keep a container of almonds by me to snack on all day. They are not the bitter almonds, but it's a much better snack than chips or junk food.
There is much controversy over the substance Laetrile also know as Vitamin B 17 being found in apricot seeds and having the ability to cure cancer. I prefer to believe that it does have this ability, but it has been outlawed to be sold. Too bad that people don't have the ability to make their own choices in regards to their cancer treatment.
As I consider my eating fruit seeds I think about the fact that I want to stop cancer growth at it's beginning stages and not let it get a foothold in my body. I think that this may be one way of stopping cancer at it's early stages. There are also antioxidants that are useful in having good health and amino acids that build up the immune system. You can learn more about these substances by following the links.
