The purpose of this book is to marshal the evidence thatcancer is a nutritional-deficiency disease. It is not caused by abacterium, virus or mysterious toxin but by the
of asubstance that modern man has removed from his diet. If thatanalysis is correct, then the cure and prevention of cancer issimple. All that needs to be done is to restore that easily obtainedand inexpensive food factor to our daily meals.This is an exciting theory. It holds the promise for a worldwithout cancer
not at some distant point in the future, and itwould mean that the billions of dollars spent each year onresearch and medical treatment could be redirected to morehappy pursuits. Of course, it also would mean that the million-or-so professionals now gainfully employed in the cancer-research,cancer-therapy, and fund-raising industries would rapidly be outof work. This is where the plot becomes interesting, because theseare the same people to whom we have turned for expert opinionregarding the validity of Laetrile, nutritional therapy.It should not be surprising that these experts have rejected thevitamin-deficiency concept of cancer. There is nothing in it forthem. Not only would a world without cancer lead to pay-check shock, it also would represent a blow to professional prestige.Imagine: a cure for cancer found in the seeds of fruits, not inresearch laboratories, and discovered by people without government grants or prestigious diplomas hanging on their walls!Organized medicine has spoken. Laetrile is quackery, it says,and is derided as an "unproven" cancer treatment. However, letus take a closer look at that word. For most people,
means simply that there is no proof. But what is proof? It is not anabsolute concept. In the strict sense, there is no such thing asproof; there is only evidence. If evidence is convincing to theobserver, then it is said to be proof, and the thesis which itsupports is viewed as "proven." If a second observer finds thesame evidence to be unconvincing, then it is
proof, and thethesis is "unproven" to that observer.As we shall see in the pages that follow, there is a great deal of evidence supporting the nutritional-deficiency concept of cancer—more than enough to convince most people that the thesis isproven. But the word
when used by the FDA, has anentirely different meaning. It is a technical definition. When the
