See How They LIE! A closer look at The 2 Major Laetrile Studies
This section looks at the two major studies conducted on Laetrile.
1. One study in 1982 by Dr. Charles Moertel, of the Mayo Clinic. – A clinical trial of amygdalin (Laetrile) in the treatment of human cancer. N Engl J Med 1982: 306 (4): 201-6.
2. The other by: Ellison N, Bvar D, Newell G. “Special report on Laetrile: The NCI Laetrile Review N Engl J Med 1978: 299 (10): 549-552.
Before we begin, I would like to also mention Dr Dean Burk (1904-1988) who worked 34 years with the National Cancer Institute and was one of the Co-Founders of the NCI. He experienced the laetrile controversy first hand. He witnessed and wrote about the credibility of these studies against laetrile which the entire medical profession today refer to and quote when Laetrile is mentioned.
