Special Preventive Factors


reduce this to a smaller amount.

  • Take vitamin A in emulsified form, to mini-

mize liver involvement. Alternate, taking it 2 weeks on and 1 week off. Blurred vision and a soapy feel- ing in the mouth are signs that the body has too much A. (Vitamins A and D, which are oil soluble, can be taken in excessive amounts, so one must always be careful. Never take large amounts of ei- ther for too long a time.)

  • In some instances, a person needs to take as

much as 300,000 IU of vitamin A. When this must be done, taking 3200 IU of vitamin E will help reduce the risk of vitamin A toxicity.

  • Vitamin A derivatives (retinoids) reverse

bronchial metaplasia.

  • Vitamins A, C, E, and beta-carotene re-

duce the risk of cancer by radiation and chemical carcinogen exposure. Vitamins A,D, and E inhibit oncogene activity.

  • Varying amounts of Vitamin A were given to

different patients with bladder cancer. Those re- ceiving the smallest dosages were the most likely to have recurring cancer (i.e., the cancer returns later).

  • The B-complex vitamins help prevent cir-

rhosis of the liver. This is important because a damaged liver has a 60% greater chance of be- coming malignant. Dr. Max Gerson found that to be consistently true. Take a B-complex supple- ment. Also take 3-4 tablespoons of brewer’s yeast each day. Do not eat baker’s yeast; it contains live yeast and is not good for you.

  • Dr. Otto Warburg, Nobel Prize winner and

director of the Max Plank Institute in Berlin, de- clared that there is a lack of one or more of three B vitamins (riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid) in tissue which becomes cancerous.

  • In various countries, nearly 200 scientists

have reported on the importance of niacin (vita- min B3) in preventing and treating cancer.

  • 2 grams of Niacin (B3) daily is recommended

as an anti-cancer factor.

  • Niacin has been recommended by the NIH

in amounts up to 3000-6000 mg, for lowering cho- lesterol. But time-release niacin is more suspect of causing liver damage; amounts which might do this were not given.

  • Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine; pyridoxal with pyri-

doxal-5-pyrophosphate (P5P) is helpful in reduc- ing damage from radiation therapy and slowing cancer growth from polyamine synthesis of the tu- mor. Especially good when a B6 ointment is ap- plied to surface melanoma tumors. It helps pre- vent respiratory and cervical cancer (Nutrition and Cance , June 1984).

  • B6-deficient mice exhibited enhanced tumor

susceptibility and increased tumor size. In another experiment, animals fortified with B6 and then in- jected with melanoma (skin) cancer cells showed a greater resistance to this deadly form of cancer. Studies on humans revealed similar results.

  • Less than 500 mg of vitamin B6 in humans

appears to be safe.

  • Vitamin B12 dramatically augments the tu-

mor kill of vitamin C.

  • A combination of folate (folic acid, a B vita-

min) and B12 has been found to reverse bronchial metaplasia (pre-malignant lesions). Folic acid pro- tects against cervical cancer (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, January 1982).

  • Pangamic acid is vitamin B15. Many scien-

tists (Warburg, Goldblatt, etc.) believe that chronic oxygen deficiency in cells leads to cancer cell for- mation. Pangamic acid increases the body’s resis- tance to oxygen deficiency. Remember that cancer cells do not use oxygen and that poorly oxygen- ated cells are the most likely to become malignant.

  • Laetrile (also called amygdalin, nitril-

osides, or vitamin B17) is another substance used to eliminate cancer. It is derived from apricot pits (seeds). Take two 500 mg tablets of laetrile 3 times a day. It is also found in all fruit kernels, except those of citrus. Other food sources, which contain lesser amounts, include lima beans, lentils, mung beans, crab apples, peaches, plums, apricots, cher- ries, cranberries, sprouted seeds, and apples (chew up the seeds as well as the apple).

  • Several apricot kernels (i.e., apricots seeds

or pits) should be eaten at each protein meal. Six per day may be sufficient. They should be eaten with food or, better yet, with fresh, frozen, or dried apricots. The slightly bitter ones contain more la- etrile (also called nitriloside or amygdalin), and are better for you than are the sweet ones. Do not mix the sweet and bitter varieties; there may be an interaction. If available, 100 mg of oral amygdalin may be substituted.

  • If people regularly ate the seeds when they

eat apples, peaches, and apricots, they would get enough laetrile. Starting to do this earlier will help prevent cancer from forming later on.

  • But when cancer is already developing, 500-

590 mg of amygdalin, in solid tablet form, should be swallowed at the two larger meals. They should not be taken on an empty stomach.

  • Vitamin C is a powerful aid in resisting can-

cer and other diseases. Swedish studies, at Karolinska and Umea Hospitals, revealed that vi- tamin C in large doses can be an effective agent in fighting cancer.

  • Vitamin C blocks the carcinogenic effects of

most poisons, including nitrates. Vitamin C can
