A friend of mine has a beautiful little one year old girl who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer :( So, I had been researching about her particular cancer and came across a World Without Cancer's website. I wonder if it's true that eating the seeds of fruits (along with the fruit) can prevent and cure cancer? It wouldn't surprise me if the cure was THAT simple. I know my grandma and great uncle on my mom's side both have lived long, cancer free lives and they would eat all of the fruit-even the peel of oranges! (which I always found gross.) Whereas my mom had breast cancer, and ate a much more processed diet. Some people think the seeds are toxic, but others argue that when eaten with the fruit it's not anymore. It reminds me of eggs-when eaten in whole, not just, say, the yolk, but the whole egg-it's a perfect, complete food. So, is it the same with fruit? Should we be eating the whole fruit? While people are concerned it's toxic, I don't know of anybody personally who has died from eating the seeds, do you? I would think you would have to eat a LOT of them to get sick. Also, isn't chemotherapy extremely toxic? I would take the toxic seeds of fruit, as opposed to the toxic drug of the medical profession any day! At least with fruit it would probably be a toxin level that only goes after the bad cells. At least, that's my general intuition on the situation, although it is just that-a guess. What are your thoughts on this? Is it safe to eat the seeds of fruit? Would you consider doing that if you found out you had cancer?
