I have been both fascinated and frightened by this story for some time about how a man who was diagnosed with terminal cancer used apricot seeds to help his body recover from the disease.
His website was seedoffaith.org (now defunct) and threats of prison time from the FDA for selling a “cure” and unlicensed practice of medicine has not stopped him from spreading the message that apricots seeds contain a substance (amygdalin, not laetrile) that fights cancer and helped him heal of his terminal condition.
At the bottom of this article you will find two links to what appears to be the same story. But, one is from 2008, and the other one is from just a few months ago, 2019. And, if you read carefully, you’ll see the trick.
Laetrile — a derivative of the seeds was tested in trials. Amygdalin, the organic (naturally occurring) form was not tested. Why? Because you cannot patent and sell a naturally occurring food.
The BIG Question Is, “Why Would A Man Who Had Been Imprisoned For Selling Bitter Apricot Kernels (amygdalin) As A Cure Risk Going Prison A Second Time For The Same Offense?!”
They say he’s just greedy and taking advantage of desperate cancer sufferers who are grasping at anything to help themselves. But, he sure isn’t enjoying that money in prison, now is he?
I believe Jason Vale is a hero because he is willing to risk his freedom for the truth.
This really has me wondering if there is some truth to the story I read on the Truth About Cancer website about the Hunza People of Northern Pakistan eating tons of apricots seeds and living far longer than Westerners.
If you read the first page of results on search engines, you will find countless pages warning you of the dangers of consuming the seeds. Don’t do it! It’s poison. There was a man who killed himself eating them! Yes, of course…
This is my very first article on Medium, and I am sharing the story of Jason Vale because I know that there are a lot of lies on the web, and I want everyone to take charge of their own health. Your body will tell you what is good for it, and trust me, most prescription drugs aren’t…
Why so much government regulation for a naturally occurring substance? If people are permitted to kill themselves with cigarettes and alcohol, why not just slap a label on the bitter apricot kernels saying: these seeds have been known to cause sickness and death, and allow people to sell them to informed consumers?
I have to share my personal account with this. Our family has had several members diagnosed with cancer. Do you know what we did? Massive detoxing through teas like essiac and cerasee (love those bitters!) and bitter apricot kernels. The strange thing is, not one of us died or got sick from the seeds, the strange thing is we got better.
Another strange thing is that we had been buying organic bitter apricot kernels from the U.K. for a while because the ones for sale in the U.S.A. were expensive and usually not pure — not by a long shot. Then, one day we got an email notice that the company was served a warning from their government that it was now illegal to sell the bitter apricot kernel to humans.
So WellGood, like the savvy business people they are, rebranded their product for pets. Now who has ever heard of giving a bitter apricot kernels to pets? Has your vet recommended it? Yeah, didn’t think so.
