Manioc (Cassava) (Tapioca/ Ubi Kayu/ 木薯) – B17 Laetrile

My wonder drug for cancer

by Dr. Cynthia Jayasuriya

Please let me share my happy experience with you. I wrote about it in February 2010 but now with added knowledge I write with many other peoples’ experience.

My experience

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I developed secondary bladder cancer after seven years following cancer in the ureter. My kidney, ureter and part of the bladder was removed. I had radiation to the abdomen there after. It was transitional cell carcinoma of the ureter. I was hale and hearty for seven years and during this period I had yearly examinations of the bladder by the fantastic surgeon who did the surgery at General Hhospital Colombo.

In the seventh year I experienced blood in the urine as I had developed a growth in the bladder. It was once again transitional cell carcinoma (Cancer). The new growth was removed but what if it recurred? While I was convalescing I came to know of a treatment by eating Apricot seed kernel that was being used in Australia and USA without any chemotherapy. The information on this is found in the web site www.worldwithoutcancer.org.

In a nutshell, how it acts on the cancer is thus. The apricot seed kernel has a substance called Vitamin B17, which was discovered by a British doctor who worked in a remote region in Afghanistan as a missionary. He found the people of the area measured their riches according to the number of Apricot trees they owned. They ate not only the apricots but also the apricot seed kernels. The apricot seed kernel looks like an almond in shape, size and smell. This is also known as the “bitter almond.” The doctor discovered that people of the region did not suffer from cancer. After investigating the doctor found that the seed kernel contained a substance, which has been given the name Vitamin B17.

As I was having cancer I was curious about any food, which had B17 in our regular food. I found by browsing on the internet that manioc also had a large concentration of Vitamin B17. So I also ate the manioc minimum of 10 grams three times a day. Having consumed it for 1 month I underwent examination of my bladder (cystoscopy) at the General Hospital by the same surgeon. He was surprised that my bladder was absolutely clean and normal. “Tthere was no place to take any biopsy” was his very words to me.

While I was taking the manioc I was feeling very fit and well and people around me notice that I looked well.

Armed with the examination results of the bladder examination I published my story for well-being of all cancer patients in Sri Lanka.

Since then every three months I have gone for examination of the bladder under the same surgeon and every time my bladder was clear. Uptil now I have not taken any treatment other than eating the manioc.

In a more simplistic way I would like to explain how the Vitamin B17 in the manioc acts. The scientific name of vitamin B17 is Amagadolin. We know that cancer cells are immature cells and it has a different enzyme to the normal cell enzyme.

When the Vitamin B17 combines with a normal cell enzyme it breaks down into 3 sugars but when it combines with the cancer cell enzyme it breaks into 1 sugar 1 benzaldehyde and 1 hydrocyanic acid. The hydrocyanic acid kills the cancer cell locally.

What happens is that there is a substance called B17 in the apricot seed kernel (and in manioc), which when combined with a normal cell enzyme breaks down into three sugars.

When B17 combines with a cancer cell (an immature cell) it breaks down into one sugar, one benzaldehyde and one hydrocyanic acid. The hydrocyanic acid kills the cancer cell.

Others’ experiences

I have been receiving frequent information from people with cancer who have read my first article about their experiences with the usage of manioc. I would like to share this information with you readers.

Mr. Perera is an 70-year-old gent who was diagnosed with prostate cancer. His wife is a retired Matron of the General Hospital. Mrs Perera read my article and had decided to try the manioc treatment because of the following reasons. The oncologist he was consulting had prescribed a tablet costing Rs. 2000/ daily and an injection that cost him Rs. 11000, which he had to have weekly.

As retired pensioners this was too much to afford. Also Mr. Perera who took the tablets and the injections for a few days refused to take it as it was making him very sick. Hearing of his illness his daughter came from USA to look after him and the daughter and his wife decided to feed him manioc instead of the tablets and injections that were prescribed. When he went on the manioc diet in a week he showed signs of wellness and after eating every morning a large breakfast of manioc for a month they took a test that he was to take after taking the tablets and injections and went to see the oncologist. He took with him the results of the PSA blood test.

Ever since he was diagnosed with the cancer the PSA test results were 280-290 but after 1 month of eating manioc it was now down to PSA 5.89! Then they came to see me too and showed me the PSA results of before and after. This gentleman (Mr. Perera) is not showing any cancer symptoms and they call me regularly to say that he is now hale and hearty.

Another gentleman who had a liver cancer had surgery in Sri Lanka but a little spot of cancer was left behind according to the subsequent MRI scan.

He then was told to go and have a detailed MRI scan done in India at a very high cost.

He started to take manioc soon after liver cancer surgery. When he did go for the detailed MRI scan in India his Oncologist in India, after examination, informed him that he did not need to undergo any surgery or treatment because the spot had not enlarged for a whole year.

He was asked to continue as before. He came and met me and he looks a picture of health now.

I am very interested and encouraged by the feedback I am getting all the time from people who call me to tell their story. Especially as the exorbitant prices of the anti cancer drugs don’t also offer a cure. My cousin who grew up next door had cancer before I knew about the manioc. She spent Rs. 40-50,000 for each injection, suffered phenomenally and died a miserable death. (Those of you who watch HBO on the Dialog TV may have seen a film titled “Death Be Not Proud” which depicts the sufferings of a cancer patient undergoing chemotherapy. That patient died). So I thought I must promote these experiences, give them publicity.

No fancy drug companies have done super duper tests on Vitamin B17 on manioc, why not try it? It is cheap, easy to obtain, easy to cook and very tasty and you will be well and not have side effects. So for what more can you ask? As we all know manioc can kill if the preparation is not done correctly. Please take the following precautions in preparation.

A. When choosing a yam to be cooked make sure the yam does not have any blemishes or discoloured areas. And try to buy freshly harvested manioc

B. When boiling keep the pot open throughout the cooking. This helps the excess hydrocyanicacid to evaporate.

C. Keep excess water for the boil and pour it out after boiling the yam.

D. Do not consume ginger or food containing ginger such as ginger biscuits, ginger beer, gingerale for at least 8 hours after consuming manioc.

Manioc’s Vitamin B17 kills the cancer cell in humans

Apricot seed kernels are used in the fight against cancer. The kernels contain Vitamin B17, and Vitamin B17 is used in medication to counter cancer. B17 tablets with apricot seed extract are available in Australia and in the US. All the information you need is available on the www.worldwithoutcancer.comwebsite.This letter is about how manioc, which also contains Vitamin B17, has the potential to combat cancer.
My story starts with a cancer I developed seven years ago. A cystoscopy revealed transitional cell cancer. The kidney, ureter and a little part of the bladder where the ureter enters the bladder were surgically removed. I was given radiation treatment, and I remained in good health over the next seven years (I was examined once a year). My bladder was cancer-free until November 2009. That month I started passing blood. Another cystoscopy was done, and a polypoidal growth close to the bladder neck was removed. The biopsy this time again revealed transitional cell cancer.

 

 

 

 

 

I had read on world without cancer.org that manioc – also known as cassava or tapioca – has a high B17 component. For a whole month following the removal of the polypoidal growth in the bladder, I ate manioc daily, usually twice a day. A cystoscopy done a month later showed that the bladder was completely symptom-free. I felt very well.

Was my wellbeing the result of the cancer-fighting properties of manioc’s Vitamin B17? It would be wonderful, I thought, if a test group of cancer patients used manioc in order to confirm that manioc really does have the ability to fight cancer, as it seemed to have done in my case.

Here is what happens when a cancer patient eats manioc:

Once the manioc is consumed, the manioc’s Vitamin B17 combines in the normal human cell with an enzyme called Rhodanese, which breaks down the B17 into three sugars. The cancer cell, which is an immature cell, has a different enzyme, beta-glucosidase, which breaks the B17 into glucose, benzaldehyde and hydrocyanic acid. The hydrocyanic acid acts like an LTTE cyanide capsule, killing the cancer cell.

I appeal to all cancer patients to try the manioc solution. If it works, it could be a great discovery for cancer patients around the world, especially those living in the tropics of Asia, Africa and the Americas, where manioc / cassava / tapioca grows and is freely available.

Please note that there are precautions to be taken in the preparation of manioc.

1. Never, repeat never, eat ginger with manioc, or even after consuming manioc. If you have been eating manioc, do not take any form of ginger or ginger products, such as ginger beer and ginger-nut biscuits. The serious risks of mixing ginger with manioc are well known in Sri Lanka.

2. When preparing manioc for eating, check whether the tuber shows a blue line when peeled for cooking. If there is a blue line, the manioc must be rejected. Manioc has cyanide in it and the blue line is an indication of cyanide emergence.

3. Cook manioc in an earthenware pot. Fill the pot with water to completely cover the manioc, and well above the level of the manioc. When boiling, keep the pot open. Do not close the pot with a lid. Once the manioc is boiled, throw away the water in the pot.

One Response to Manioc (Cassava) (Tapioca/ Ubi Kayu/ 木薯) – B17 Laetrile

  1. Hi KK

    Sorry that I am not able to respond to your query because the article is provided by Dr. Cynthia Jayasuriya and meant for information sharing here unless someone had consumed this edible plant for cancer fighting and is willing to share the experience with us. We knew this edible plant tapioca since young age but never knew of its medicinal properties can be applied to cancer diseases. In fact, what intrigued me is the pythochemical of this herb contents B17 which has a lot of similarity to phytochemical of apricot kernel (laetrile) including its toxicity substance.
