Laetrile is synthetic form of the natural substance called as amygdalin which found naturally in raw nuts and the pips of many fruits, particularly apricot pips/kernels. Laetrile is often touted as a cancer remedy. There are sayings that vitamin B17 foods can cure cancer or at the very least put it in remission when large doses are consumed every day, but this is merely anecdotal evidence, not specific scientific evidence but using laetrile for cancer treatments has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Further research studies are necessary to conform whether to consume vitamin B17 content food or not. Nurse must know about alternative therapy for the patients with cancer by using amygdalin content food.
