certain phyto seeds are said to be anti-cancer
NOTE: Mycoalkonics does not expressly recommend that you start chewing
on raw phyto-seeds or buy off-the-shelf Vitamin B17, etc, but intends
to give you a picture of phyto-material as natural anti-fungals. There
is no single 'miracle' antidote for cancer and Mycoalkonics recommends
that you look at the fundamentals of Mycoalkonics
, unlike most fauna organisms, are not mobile
but are rooted at one place where they germinate and mature. Thus, they
are blessed with built-in bionics to counter the adversity of nature in
the wild where they grow, especially during seed germination phase.
Environmental conditions aside, a notorious component of this adversity
are pests, flora and fauna alike, of dimensions ranging from within
human sight or completely invisible to the naked eye; not forgetting
the fungi family of pests. Fungi have superior survival
tactics and strategies which are predatory, opportunistic and
parasitic. It is one of the most persistent scourge of living
forms on this planet.
You will find that though some matured phyto organisms may succumb to
fungal attack, their seeds can defend themselves from fungal attack
while they germinate. This is part of nature's blessings. In fact
sprouts from seeds can be harvested for therapeutic uses as they
contain vital enzymes and also phyto compounds which are adverse to
bacteria, viruses and fungi.
Examples of seeds which have been known to be anti-fungal are raw seeds
from common edible fruits such as apple, lemon, all types of limes,
apricot, peach, pear, passion fruit, papaya, promegranate, and
watermelon. Other types of seeds have their special anti-fungal
properties such as almond, walnut, chestnut, beans, and grains.
cells with a certain enzyme can digest nitrilosides
The anti-fungal component
in the phyto seeds which is lethal to fungi is a class of compounds
alternatively called amygdaline
It is given the commercial name Vitamin B-17; is water-soluble and is
considered to be one of the bio-actives.
In fact nitrilosides are found in hundreds of raw phyto substances
which are edible such as seeds, tubers, nuts, grains, and sprouts. The
chemical composition of nitriloside is two glucose-like portion; one
glucose molecule having at its core a benzaldehyde
component, and the other glucose molecule having at its core a cyanate
component. Nitrilosides are highly stable compounds and pose
no harm to human or animals who imbibed them because the benzaldehyde
and cyanate components are safely 'locked' in by the chemical bonds.
can be 'digested' or broken down into
simpler compounds by, for example
the enzymes found in fungi, such as beta-glucosidase
As this enzyme secreted by the fungus cells 'digest' the nitriloside
molecule (which being a 'glucose-variant' is targetted by fungus
cells), the benzaldehyde and cyanate compounds are released thus
killing the fungus cells.
The beta-glucosidase enzyme is found largely in cancer cells and this
is the reason why it had a history of being under focus to be developed
as an anti-cancer compound. The 'laetrile episode' as it was once
noted, had some twists and turns and later became totally relegated to
the backwaters of 'once-upon-a-time' quackery or something like that.
Much loss in focus was happening at that time and you will find that
this 'laetrile episode' is often mentioned as having 'no scientific
evidence of laetrile effectiveness against cancer' or something to that
The key finding from this
nitriloside 'story' is the beta-glucosidase enzyme which is largely
found in fungus cells.
A natural follow-up of
this finding would naturally be a look at whether cancer cells are
ACTUALLY fungus cells, given the large amounts of this enzyme emanating
from cancer cells, rather than trying to find out under what
circumstances laetrile works and under which it does not work, because
such tests are specific and irrelevant to the more cogent issue that
is: Study further the etiology, morphology and whatever -logy of fungus
in causing cancer. The evidences are mountingly more than just
cells behaving like fungal cells.
the nitriloside discovery did not seem to compel the cancer research
laboratories (on a wide-scale) to find out what is causing cancer cells
(which are supposedly mutated human cells) to secrete the enzyme
The key question that begs straight-to-the-point answers (lacking
currently) is: Is there such a basis to conclude that human
cells mutate to a form which enable these so-called 'mutated human
cells' to produce beta-glucosidase like fungus cells do?
There is currently not enough research being done in this direction.
However, reports from various small groups of independent researchers
have shown that the cells at the core of cancer tumours, benign or
malignant, are in fact analogous to the DNA of fungus cells. For
example Dr Tullio Simoncini has written a book on the subject of cancer
cells as fungus cells.
We are not proposing you
start munching on raw seeds, grains, tubers, etc to get the anti-cancer
actives. What we are proposing is much more fundamental than this.
However, it does not hurt to chew on some seeds every now and then such
as lemon seeds, apple seeds, say once in two or three weeks, as you eat
your apple or making lemonade drink. We believe no one can overdoze on
lemon or apple seeds because these seeds are not exactly appetizing or
palatable. But given the facts that cancer cells might very
well be fungus cells, it does not hurt you so badly to chew on some of
these seeds. Happy munching on raw edible seeds, nuts, and tubers.
