Manioc & Cancer

Lankan poor spend, suffer and die needlessly

CANCER: $600 billion annual global industry

 By Elmo Leonard

Consuming manioc for prevention and treatment of cancer even in the terminally ill is not new, and is practiced in many parts of the world, Dr. Cynthia Jayasuriya said last week. Sri Lankan Dr. Cynthia Jayasuriya, 76, a retired ENT specialist, does not treat cancer and makes no money from propagating the use of manioc or other foods such as apricot which contains Vitamin B 17, proven to kill cancer 10-1cells in the body, leaving the afflicted person well again.   
Since Dr. Jayasuriya revealed to the media recently that she had experimented with eating manioc and was cured of cancer which she had for a decade, while her writing has been monitored on email. She has received the attention of people from many parts of the world. She’s embarrassed by her new popularity, and requested we carry no photograph of her. “It’s humanitarian,” she said.
Dr. Jayasuriya cites the studies of Filipino Professor Manuel Navarro. Self effacing Dr. Navarro just lists himself as  “MD” but his research and success makes him one of the top oncologists in the world. Dr. Jayasuriya got to know of Dr. Navarro through Dr. Larry Von of USA. Dr Von had read Dr. Jayasuriya’s letter on the internet and had contacted her.

What we call manioc (Sinhala mayyokka) is also known as cassava and tapioca in other parts of the world. A native of the Amazon, it was also known in Africa before colonial times.
Dr. Navarro has said that manioc is an effective low-cost treatment to help reverse cancer growth. His advice is to take about a four inch average size cassava root, wash and peel off only the outer brown skin and blend it in a blender with two cups or 16 ounces of distilled water. The blending at high speed should be for just for two minutes. Pour the “Cassava Milk” into a wide mouth glass storage bottle, and cool in a refrigerator.
When it settles, all the dissolved starch will stay at the bottom; there will be nearly two cups of clear liquid on top. Drink one half of it (one cup) in the morning before breakfast and other cup in the early evening. The taste will be slightly bitter being the base of the B-17. To counter the bitterness, concentrated fruit juice or flavour can be added.  
Consume only about four inches of the root the first day, and each day, thereafter add half an inch more. One day, a few minutes after taking the liquid, you will feel dizzy. Count that as your limit and tolerance level. The next day take an inch less. Dr. Navarro has said, “It kills cancer, and be careful not to exceed the limit. It should not be given to children.”
He also said that it is not deadly “cyanide” and it is only Amygdaline (B-17) which is somewhat similar in formula to cyanide, but lacks an “h” factor of the cyanide formula. Amazingly, cancer cells being non aerobic, do produce within themselves that missing “h” factor. Thus, only the cancer cells are poisoned as they touch the B-17! But all other cells are left untouched.

Little or no cancer

South American Indians living in the heights of the central mountain areas eat maize (corn) as their staple food. They never have cancer as corn contains large amounts of B-17. A Lankan doctor said that in places in Africa where tapioca is the staple food, there are no known cases of cancer, but deaths from AIDS are high.    
Dr. Jayasuriya had had her left kidney and ureter (tube which leads from the kidney to the bladder removed and part of her bladder was cut out. For seven and a half years she was well before the cancer appeared again, necessitating surgery. At that stage, Dr. Jayasuriya, knowing that almond, the kernel of apricot is high in B-17 and used in treating cancer, searched the internet and found that manioc is also high in B-17.
Dr. Jayasuriya consumed about a 100 grams of manioc, three times a day. In the morning, she ate it boiled and in the afternoon and night, as a curry. She advises that manioc should be boiled, covered with water to the top of the utensil, left open. Old manioc must not be used and ginger should not be consumed even as ginger biscuits eight hours before and after consuming manioc.      
Dr. Navarro has said that his treatment of patients with Laetrile-amygdalin in cases of terminal cancer are comparable or superior to results obtained with the use of the more toxic standard cytotoxic agents, an extract from World Without Cancer by Edward Griffin.
Dr. Jayasuriya has been asked whether eating manioc when a patient is on chemotherapy or radiotherapy, or some other form of treatment is harmful. Her answer was that no tests had been carried out on any such harmful effects, but those who had dared to consume manioc while on such therapy had very good results.
Dr. Jayasuriya recounted some of the people she knew who had spent very large sums of money for the treatment of cancer with injections and other forms of therapy but they suffer and die.
Manioc is available in the USA, got down from Mexico and Dr. Jayasuriya had cooked manioc in California for her grand children who are living there.  
“My sister (in Melbourne) had had cancer for many years until it was detected and the surgeon examined all internal organs to rid her of possible cancer cells. Emails coming from her conform to web messages from all developed and developing countries that papaya (papaw in Sri Lanka) is an effective cure for cancer. Only, it must be taken regularly. Also, that soursup (Sinhala: katu athar or anodha) is. Other sources say that aloe vera (Sinhala: komarika) steamed and the jelly eaten is a cure for cancer,” she said. Perhaps such nutrients must be taken regularly and when in combination is more effective. A Sri Lanka oncologist had told Dr. Jayasuriya that her work will result in the local price of manioc going up. She replied that local farmers in the dry zone (manioc does not need much water) will get more money.      
Perhaps these nutrients must be taken regularly.
Rick Cantrell, PhD, MD, PsyD says that the treatment for cancer is a $120 billion industry in the United States and $600 billion a year in the world.
Dr. Cantrell: “A successful cancer case according to the American Cancer Society and the American College of Oncology and Haematology means that the person survives for five years. Both the American Cancer Society and the American College of Oncology and Haematology admit that a person is likely to survive cancer for seven to 10 years even if they do absolutely nothing. Of course, only the doctors get those magazines – not you, the cancer patient.


“Alternative medicine’s track record of curing cancer is 10 times higher than that of conventional medicines. Note, I say CURE. In Sri Lanka, many ayurveda physicians who treat cancer patients are known to be quacks, and their patients are known to suffer more and die miserable deaths.
