Hi Pastaking,
I don`t know what to make of this. I could not access the You Tube site.

Funnily enough my mother is dying from terminal cancer and my sister is a Professor of Oncology (Cancer Medicine at at premier University). Whilst micro nutrients - vitamins and minerals may have a role to play in prevention and via ingestion by diet, can any ONE be described as a cure. I don`t know - they may have a role to play in preventing cancer but can they cure the multifarious forms by which cancer presents itself - cells going wild and wrong(!)?

Is the site valid in terms of research and trials - so many other factors come into play when looking at cancer - it is the most multi-faceted disease we know.

The video is about Ernst Krebs, who touted laetrile, aka Vitamin B17, as a cure for cancer. Archiduc, you probably know that laetrile was debunked in the 1970s.

I'm sorry to hear about your mother.
