Cassava Is Rich in Vitamin B17- Used in Medication to Counter Cancer
Vitamin B17 is very helpful in the fight against cancer. The cassava plant includes high levels of vitamin B17 which makes it very good ally in the fight against any cancer. Amazed with this fact, Dr. Cynthia Jayasuriya, ear, nose and throat surgeon, was interested in finding foods that are high in B17 vitamin because she was already diagnosed with cancer. She has very encouraging and inspiring story to tell. She was diagnosed with transitional cell cancer and fought with it for 10 years. Then she decided to face towards the alternative medicine treatment. She discovered that cassava is loaded with vitamin B17 she consumed the plant for one month. She took 100 grams of cassava three times a day. She consumed it boiled in the mornings and as a curry in the afternoon and in the evening. Her doctor couldnt find any signs of cancer during her cystoscopy.
Here is her explanation about how this plant really works:
When the cassava is consumed, the vitamin B17 unites with an enzyme called Rhodanese in the normal human cell. It degrades the B17 into three sugars. The human cell contains a different enzyme known as bet-glucosidase, which degrades the B17 into glucose, hydrocyanic acid and benzaldehyde. The hydrocyanic acid works like LTTE cyanide capsule, destroying the cancer cells.
Once the vitamin B17 unites with a normal cell enzyme it degrades into three sugars, but when it unites with cancer cell enzyme it degrades into 1 sugar, 1 benzaldehyde and 1 hydrocyanic acid. The hydrocyanic acid destroys the cancer cell locally.
