A quick check of Wickipedia give us this.

Since the early 1950s, a modified form of amygdalin has been promoted under the names laetrile and "Vitamin B17" as a cancer cure, but it is not a vitamin,[3] and studies have found it to be ineffective and potentially toxic[4][5][6] as a possible cause of cyanide poisoning.[7] The promotion of laetrile to treat cancer has been described in the scientific literature as a canonical example of quackery,[8][9][10] with Irving Lerner of the University of Minnesota describing it as "the slickest, most sophisticated, and certainly the most remunerative cancer quack promotion in medical history."[3]

The best advise anyone can give you is to not undertake even vitamin or diet changes without talking to your medical team.

Hi, this is my first post.

I have been recently diagnosed with T1 G3 BC.

I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with B17/Laetrile?

Thanks.
