"...Ive said many times in the past that your great work World Without Cancer was destined to become a classic.... There is nothing basic in your book that is not as sound as the day it was published; time affords your work greater validation with each passing month...Thank you for your good judgment in "staying the course" with your classic... There are no errors in your book..." -- Ernst T. Krebs, Jr., PhD<br /><br />"A clear and revolutionary insight into both the science and politics of cancer therapy." -- Dean Burk, Ph.D., Former Head of Cytochemistry, National Cancer Institute<br /><br />"A milestone of careful research and penetrating analysis." -- John A. Richardson, M.D., Albany, California<br /><br />"For the first time since I became a nurse 23 years ago, I do not fear cancer!" -- Mrs. R.E. Bruce, R.N., San Diego, California<br /><br />"Griffins book... has had, it is no exaggeration to say, a tremendous influence on the attitude of many thousands of Americans toward cancer, alternative medicine, and the politics of cancer. In his deadpan, factually grounded but highly effective writing style, Griffin reviews the failure of much of orthodox cancer treatment; the little reported history, theory, and intriguing clinical nature of laetrile (a nutritional therapy made from the kernels of apricots and other fruits); and the Byzantine politics and economics of modern medicine and the international pharmaceutical cartel that have prevented many promising alternative therapies from being fully developed and made commercially available. The book is essential reading for a person with cancer, anyone interested in the contemporary history of alternative medicine, and anyone who likes a good story a story all the more amazing because it appears to be largely true. As a journalist who has reported on alternative medicine and the war on cancer for two decades (and with the help of many magazine editors and fact checkers along the way), I can attest to the basic accuracy of Griffins work, as well as its importance to one trying to understand an unusually complex area of modern life. Whether one accepts Griffins underlying thesis about the value of laetrile as an effective treatment, the insights into the medical business and the difficult road alternatives face that can be gleaned from reading World Without Cancer - New Edition make the book well worth the read." -- Peter Chowka, Natural HealthLine, 4/15/97<br /><br />"Mr. Griffin has lifted the veil of mystery from Laetrile." --Dr. Ernst T. Krebs, Jr., Discoverer of Vitamin B17 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

And it is about the generations before us and where the money is coming from. Who is in control and he names names. READ IT
If you live in the United States, a land where "one of three of us will develop cancer in our lifetime" (pg. 21), it's imperative that you read this book, and that you tell your friends, family, etc. to read it as well. This is one of the most important health issues we face. And if G. Edward Griffin is correct, then we can have a world without cancer now, based entirely on existing knowledge, simply by making foods rich in Vitamin B17 a part of our everyday diet.
Griffin wrote the first edition of "World Without Cancer" in the early 1970s, a time when the American medical establishment was focused on attacking Laetrile, an "unconventional" cancer treatment. Treating cancer conventionally (surgery, chemotherapy) is a huge source of profit for various groups of people, especially drug manufacturers and politicians. "There are more people making a living from cancer than dying from it. If the riddle were to be solved by a simple vitamin, this gigantic commercial and political industry could be wiped out overnight." (pg. 22) Because of this, the medical establishment engaged in massive fraud, creating rigged science experiments that would "discredit" Laetrile. The details of these rigged experiments are related in the opening two chapters: "The Watergate Syndrome" and "Genocide In Manhattan".
And yet, the vitamin theory of cancer has persisted and grown among knowledgeable, health-minded people. Far from being "quackery", this book includes the personal testimonies of many people whose use of Laetrile therapy saved them from death. It also includes profiles of upstanding physicians all around the world (circa 1974) who have used Laetrile to help their patients recover. One of these doctors, Philip Binzel from Ohio, wrote a book called "Alive And Well" where he discussed his own positive experiences of treating cancer patients with nutrition.
Just like Griffin's later book "The Creature From Jekyll Island", WWC is extremely comprehensive, discussing practically every important aspect of both the science and politics of cancer therapy. Few writers I've encountered can match him in clarity or depth. Which is exactly what a topic of this severity demands.
What "World Without Cancer" demonstrates to me, more than anything else, is that 1. cancer is the price that "modern Western" people are paying for eating highly-processed rubbish with harmful, synthetic ingredients, and 2. the pharmaceutical industry's exorbitant influence over our health and over American medical education simply must be broken. There is reason to be optimistic about both points. In recent years, an organic, naturopathic revolution of sorts has spread throughout the United States (courtesy of people like Mike Adams and Joseph Mercola) to the point where even the average person possesses some knowledge of these facts. Thanks to this revolution, it may be only a matter of time before it becomes "obvious" that cancer is caused by a lack of Vitamin B17.
After I read this book, I started consuming apples and their seeds on a regular basis. I intend to make myself into the ultimate test. I suggest everyone reading these words do the same.
