The laetrile debacle has been discussed before, and it just gets dicey when people try to make connections between apricot seeds (which are not FDA approved for treating CA), which also cannot be monitored re: content (ie: active ingredient varies seed to seed, or nut to nut if you will).
I remember when this hit in the 90's sometime and there was this rush in sales.
I do not want to infringe on anyone's right to choose their own form of treatment and therapy, and I will admit there are a lot of things in nature that can help, and I'll admit there are many treatments that may be slow to develop for acceptance in the USA....
That being said, we do need to at least keep in mind ethical treatment. I'm not trying to dismiss that, or any treatment, in particular, but I'd hate to see someone avoid appropriate medical care all together and eat an unknown quantity of a substance. Just urging caution when making correlations or claims....
