What Happened to the Man Jailed for Healing His Cancer?

Man Jailed for Healing Himself of Cancer

Remember our recent newsletter on former arm wrestler Jason Vale? To recap, this Brooklyn man was diagnosed with terminal cancer. After turning away from allopathic treatments that made him feel worse, he began eating apricot kernels. With no other treatments, his cancer was gone. Amazed, he decided to tell the world. The problem is, he used the word “cure” and “cancer” in the same sentence.
The next thing he knew, he was in maximum security federal prison serving a 5-year sentence.

What Happened to Jason Vale Since Then?

Jason Vale served his sentence and was released from prison. However, his cancer came back after 18 years of having it under control. Why? Because he admittedly stopped eating apricot kernels and began consuming lots of sugary foods, meat and painkillers. Faced with two tumors on his kidney. he was very close to opting for surgery when he decided to go back to what he knows works. He is now back on apricot kernels and additional vitamin B17 supplements, as well as a healthy diet. Finally, his tumor is shrinking again.   

Apricot KernelsThe Science Behind Apricot Kernels

Apricot kernels are simply the edible seeds of apricots. They contain a rare substance called amygdalin, otherwise known as vitamin B17. One study found that amygdalin “significantly inhibited” cervical cancer cells.1 Another study found that amygdalin destroyed prostate cancer cells, concluding that “amygdalin may offer a valuable option for the treatment of prostate cancers.”2  Yet another study suggested that amygdalin has an “anticancer effect” by inhibiting genes related to colon cancer cells.3 The list of research goes on.

The Sunfood Difference

Our raw, organic apricot kernels are BACK IN STOCK after a huge response. They come from wild apricot trees growing on the mountain slopes of Uzbekistan, where they are untouched by chemicals, and gently harvested by hand. Once the kernels are removed they are slowly sun-dried to bring you the highest quality, sustainable apricot kernels available.

What Else Can Apricot Kernels Do?

Amygdalin is known to have anti-inflammatory and pain relieving effects. One study observed the anti-arthritic effects of amygdalin and concluded that it “may serve as an analgesic for relieving inflammatory pain.”4
It is recommended to start slowly with apricot kernels as they are considered to be a medicinal food. They have relaxing effects and may lower blood pressure, thus it’s recommended to only consume 5 per hour, or 6-10 a day.

“They Are Definitely Doing Something” Review by Elizabeth
“I’ve been having these apricot kernels for a few months now, having worked my way up from a couple a day to about 10 or 12 a day (but never more than a few at a time). they are crunchy, aromatic, and slightly bitter, and numb the tip of my tongue when I chew on more than a few at a time. Whatever that particular substance is, it must be working its way into the places I need it most, because I suddenly can’t remember the last time I had a very crippling back or joint pain (it’s always there if I think about it, but I suddenly have to concentrate on it to find it). I also feel having my maximum amount of kernels in one day lowers my heart rate and pressure a bit (similarly to the effects of eating spirulina and chlorella) and is relaxing, though having low blood pressure to begin with, I don’t really need the help. For anyone who does, though, please give these a try. A few kernels go a long way.”
