    Comment:
    The 'bitterness' in Bitter Almonds is because of the presence of Amygdalin which when digested releases a cyanide molecule (-CN) which is metabolized into Thiocyanate and stored in the liver to be later metabolized into Hypothiocyanate and used by the immune system to kill bacteria in the lungs. Without amygdalin in the diet, a non-genetically induced form of Cystic Fibrosis can occur.

    Comment:
    Diagnosed with the same throat cancer as actor Michael Douglas, I bypassed the American health-care system entirely and used Vitamin B-17 (amygdalin) to gain control of the malignancy, instead of drugs or radiotherapy. Unfortunately, Mr. Douglas's cancer therapies have damaged his body to the extent that he will not live long enough to see his kids graduate. His Sloan Kettering doctors have ... Show Full Comment
