I pray for a cure for Cancer

Dr. Tilak Fernando

Friday, March 15, is The world Cancer day. This morning ( Tuesday) I received an email with a compassionate ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…” requestƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ to circulate among everyone I knew. The subject on the mail itself touched my heart which said:

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Dear God, I pray for a cure for CancerƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

Immediately I circulated ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ it to all my friends (with of course adding them in the BCC folder). By evening I received ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ an equally appealing request from my good friend JoeƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  De Livera, who sent me a true to life account on ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ his cousin Dr. Cynthia Jayasuriya, who has gone through the trauma ofƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ cancer andƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  how manioc has cured her completely after going through ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ chemo therapy etc.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ She had already shared her experience with the public last year in a lengthy article which was published in the Sunday Observer ( Sri Lanka)ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  . ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ In her article she referred to theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  HBO on the Dialog TV about a film titled ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…- Death Be Not ProudƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ which depicted the sufferings of a cancer patient undergoing chemotherapy. That patient died and she decided to tell ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ her experience and give publicity to this wonder drug for cancer which I am reproducing in verbatim for the benefit of all those who ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ had not read it before.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ May everyone be happy and healthy.

ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Cancer -ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  My wonder drug for cancer”


Dr. Cynthia Jayasuriya

Please let me share my happy experience with you. I wrote about it in February 2010 but now with added knowledge I write with many other peoples’ experience.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ My experience

I developed secondary bladder cancer after seven years following cancer in the ureter. My kidney, ureter and part of the bladder was removed. I had radiation to the abdomen there after. It was transitional cell carcinoma of the ureter. I was hale and hearty for seven years and during this period I had yearly examinations of the bladder by the fantastic surgeon who did the surgery at General Hospital Colombo.

In the seventh year I experienced blood in the urine as I had developed a growth in the bladder. It was once again transitional cell carcinoma (Cancer). The new growth was removed but what if it recurred? While I was convalescing I came to know of a treatment by eating Apricot seed kernel that was being used in Australia and USA without any chemotherapy. The information on this is found in the web site www.worldwithoutcancer.org.

In a nutshell, how it acts on the cancer is thus. The apricot seed kernel has a substance called Vitamin B17, which was discovered by a British doctor who worked in a remote region in Afghanistan as a missionary. He found the people of the area measured their riches according to the number of Apricot trees they owned. They ate not only the apricots but also the apricot seed kernels. The apricot seed kernel looks like an almond in shape, size and smell. This is also known as the “bitter almond.” The doctor discovered that people of the region did not suffer from cancer. After investigating the doctor found that the seed kernel contained a substance, which has been given the name Vitamin B17.

As I was having cancer I was curious about any food, which had B17 in our regular food. I found by browsing on the internet that manioc also had a large concentration of Vitamin B17. So I also ate the manioc minimum of 10 grams three times a day. Having consumed it for 1 month I underwent examination of my bladder (cystoscopy) at the General Hospital by the same surgeon. He was surprised that my bladder was absolutely clean and normal. “There was no place to take any biopsy” was his very words to me.

While I was taking the manioc I was feeling very fit and well and people around me notice that I looked well.

Armed with the examination results of the bladder examination I published my story for well-being of all cancer patients in Sri Lanka.

Since then every three months I have gone for examination of the bladder under the same surgeon and every time my bladder was clear. Uptil now I have not taken any treatment other than eating the manioc.

In a more simplistic way I would like to explain how the Vitamin B17 in the manioc acts. The scientific name of vitamin B17 is Amagadolin. We know that cancer cells are immature cells and it has a different enzyme to the normal cell enzyme.

When the Vitamin B17 combines with a normal cell enzyme it breaks down into 3 sugars but when it combines with the cancer cell enzyme it breaks into 1 sugar 1 benzaldehyde and 1 hydrocyanic acid. The hydrocyanic acid kills the cancer cell locally.

What happens is that there is a substance called B17 in the apricot seed kernel (and in manioc), which when combined with a normal cell enzyme breaks down into three sugars.

When B17 combines with a cancer cell (an immature cell) it breaks down into one sugar, one benzaldehyde and one hydrocyanic acid. The hydrocyanic acid kills the cancer cell.

Others’ experiences

I have been receiving frequent information from people with cancer who have read my first article about their experiences with the usage of manioc. I would like to share this information with your readers.


Mr. Perera is an 70-year-old gent who was diagnosed with prostate cancer. His wife is a retired Matron of the General Hospital. Mrs. Perera read my article and had decided to try the manioc treatment because of the following reasons. The oncologist he was consulting had prescribed a tablet costing Rs. 2000/ daily and an injection that cost him Rs. 11000, which he had to have weekly.

As retired pensioners this was too much to afford. Also Mr. Perera who took the tablets and the injections for a few days refused to take it as it was making him very sick. Hearing of his illness his daughter came from USA to look after him and the daughter and his wife decided to feed him manioc instead of the tablets and injections that were prescribed. When he went on the manioc diet in a week he showed signs of wellness and after eating every morning a large breakfast of manioc for a month they took a test that he was to take after taking the tablets and injections and went to see the oncologist. He took with him the results of the PSA blood test.

Ever since he was diagnosed with the cancer the PSA test results were 280-290 but after 1 month of eating manioc it was now down to PSA 5.89! Then they came to see me too and showed me the PSA results of before and after. This gentleman (Mr. Perera) is not showing any cancer symptoms and they call me regularly to say that he is now hale and hearty.

Another gentleman who had a liver cancer had surgery in Sri Lanka but a little spot of cancer was left behind according to the subsequent MRI scan.

He then was told to go and have a detailed MRI scan done in India at a very high cost.

He started to take manioc soon after liver cancer surgery. When he did go for the detailed MRI scan in India his Oncologist in India, after examination, informed him that he did not need to undergo any surgery or treatment because the spot had not enlarged for a whole year.

He was asked to continue as before. He came and met me and he looks a picture of health now.

I am very interested and encouraged by the feedback I am getting all the time from people who call me to tell their story. Especially as the exorbitant prices of the anti cancer drugs don’t also offer a cure. My cousin who grew up next door had cancer before I knew about the manioc. She spent Rs. 40-50,000 for each injection, suffered phenomenally and died a miserable death. (Those of you who watch HBO on the Dialog TV may have seen a film titled “Death Be Not Proud” which depicts the sufferings of a cancer patient undergoing chemotherapy. That patient died). So I thought I must promote these experiences, give them publicity.

No fancy drug companies have done super duper tests on Vitamin B17 on manioc, why not try it? It is cheap, easy to obtain, easy to cook and very tasty and you will be well and not have side effects. So for what more can you ask? As we all know manioc can kill if the preparation is not done correctly. Please take the following precautions in preparation.

A. When choosing a yam to be cooked make sure the yam does not have any blemishes or discoloured areas. And try to buy freshly harvested manioc

B. When boiling keep the pot open throughout the cooking. This helps the excess hydrocyanicacid to evaporate.

C. Keep excess water for the boil and pour it out after boiling the yam.

D. Do not consume ginger or food containing ginger such as ginger biscuits, ginger beer, ginger ale for at least 8 hours after consuming manioc. ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-

    If you would go to YouTube and perform search using the keywords: Marijuana THC and Cancer, you will also find some interesting videos. Without waiting till a Sudda gives medicines, we should look at to nature what it can offer to cure cancer and other diseases.

    Since being blessed with our own indigenous medicines and treatments, we should explore that knowledge more to expand our capabilities.

    GOSL should take interest.

    Dr. Tilak !! I read this article about Manioc. This should be given wide publicity in Sri Lanka. Also Lemon Grass…Sera, and Katu Aththa (Sour Sop) also known as Gravioli and Guanbana.

    The Israelis were the first to find that the Citral in the lemon grass makes the Cancer Cells commit suicide. Please Google ” LEMON GRASS FOR CANCER ” Also please Google Sour Sop – Gravioli for Cancer. It is all there.

    It was an American Reseacher who found out that Sour Sop is 10,000 times more stronger than Chemo Therapy. The entire outcome of the research was suppressed, because the Drug Manufacturers could not make money on an Organic Product. So, the cure was hidden without any publicity.

    I printed out the Lemon Grass and Sour Sop details, and sent it by mail from the President downwards to the Maharagama Cancer Hospital, about 20 Letters, requesting them to give publicity in Sri Lanka, and get people to use Lemon Grass very generously in their cooking. Many MPs received this letter individually, but they cared Two Hoots to make an awareness program. I sent a copy to the Matron, Cancer Hospital Maharagama, to give Lemon Grass TEA to all patients. Also to give Sour Sop Leaf TEA to the patients. It appears that all my efforts fell on Deaf years. I sent a copy to Lake House for them to give wide publicity. They are dumb mules, who do not care.

    Three items, Manioc, Lemon Grass and Sour Sop should be given wide publicity in Sri Lanka, because it is all available at ones door step, so to say. I do hope some institution will take the challenge to initiate an awareness program not for a day or two, but as a continuous effort. Good Luck.

    Cancer does not have one causative agent. It is a range of reasons. There should be more than one mechanism. that is why it needs different drugs.

    Again, None of the cancers are prevalent as fever or heart diseases. Because of that, cost of medicine will be always expensive.

    The best cure for cancer should be preventive first. That is to remove environmental and food related agents aside. That takes long. Because, the Govts don’t like to change policies. So, that environment would be more human/animal-friendly. People would only consume unprocessed and untreated foods.

    Stress, probably, also make humans more prone to cancers. Besides, only the genetically vulnerable people are more prone to cancers and not every one.
