Mr. Griffin marshals the evidence that cancer is a deficiency disease like scurvy or pellagra aggravated by the lack of an essential food compound in modem mans diet. That substance is vitamin B17. In its purified form developed for cancer therapy, it is known as Laetrile.
Why has orthodox medicine waged war against this non drug approach? The author contends that the answer is to be found, not in science, but in politics and is based upon the hidden economic and power agenda of those who dominate the medical establishment.
This is a new edition of the book. It is the most complete and authoritative treatise ever produced on Laetrile. It explains the theory by which Laetrile is believed to work. Case histories are included.

There are no errors in your book..." -- Ernst T. Krebs, Jr., PhD

"Griffins book... has had, it is no exaggeration to say, a tremendous influence on the attitude of many thousands of Americans toward cancer, alternative medicine, and the politics of cancer. In his deadpan, factually grounded but highly effective writing style, Griffin reviews the failure of much of orthodox cancer treatment; the little reported history, theory, and intriguing clinical nature of laetrile (a nutritional therapy made from the kernels of apricots and other fruits); and the Byzantine politics and economics of modern medicine and the international pharmaceutical cartel that have prevented many promising alternative therapies from being fully developed and made commercially available. The book is essential reading for a person with cancer, anyone interested in the contemporary history of alternative medicine, and anyone who likes a good story a story all the more amazing because it appears to be largely true. As a journalist who has reported on alternative medicine and the war on cancer for two decades (and with the help of many magazine editors and fact checkers along the way), I can attest to the basic accuracy of Griffins work, as well as its importance to one trying to understand an unusually complex area of modern life. Whether one accepts Griffins underlying thesis about the value of laetrile as an effective treatment, the insights into the medical business and the difficult road alternatives face that can be gleaned from reading World Without Cancer - New Edition make the book well worth the read." -- Peter Chowka, Natural HealthLine, 4/15/97
"Mr. Griffin has lifted the veil of mystery from Laetrile." --Dr. Ernst T. Krebs, Jr., Discoverer of Vitamin B17
