Vitamin B-17 vs. Laetrile

Vitamin B-17 is the name given this substance by Dr. Ernst T. Krebs Jr., the man who first identified amygdalin. He called it a food component, and food components that are natural, non-toxic, water-soluble and compatible with human metabolisms — like amygdalin — are called vitamins.

What is Laetrile?

Laetrile is the concentrated, purified form of amygdalin developed for use in the laboratory and in cancer treatments.
