What is Vitamin B17?

Vitamin B17 appears in abundance in untamed nature. Because Vitamin B17 is bitter to the taste, in man's attempt to improve tastes and flavors for his own pleasure, he has eliminated bitter substances like vitamin B17 by selection and cross-breeding. It can be stated as a general rule that many of the foods that have been domesticated still contain vitamin B17 in that part not eaten by modem man, such as the seeds in apricots. Listed below is an evaluation of some of the more common B17 foods. Keep in mind that these are averages only and that specimens vary widely depending on variety, locale, soil, and climate.
