I don't always believe the FDA. Even our vitamins say not approved by the FDA. What is your opinion?
The thing about hucksters is that they know how to feed on fear and ignorance, and to leverage a tiny bit of truth into a marketing message.
I am not always delighted with the FDA, either and I agree that the pharmaeutical industry in this country is out of control.
I don't think laetril is a cure for cancer and it has been around for at least thirty years that I know of.
My advice: put it on your list of stuff to avoid and talk to your doctor about what is right for you. There are alternatives that have some promise but, sadly, neither coilloidal silver or laetril are among them.
Check out the website below for more information on a bunch of topics. Start by clicking on info, then articles, then your topic of interest.
I hope this helps,
