This looks too good to be true. How come we never heard of the Hunza? Oh well, at least we are learning stuff everyday. What picked my interest is the vitamin B-17 mention. This vitamin deserves intense focus in order to either implement it in our diets or dismiss it as another fad. So far it looks promising.
Apricot Kernels vs Cancer.
July 24, 2016
Hunza people are a small population, situated in Northern Pakistan, and are believe to be the healthiest, happiest, and the longest-living people in the world.
These people are the only one who do not know about cancer, give birth at 65, and regularly bath in cold water.
According to the AMA Journal, Dr. Robert McCarrison claims that not a single person among them has ever suffered from cancer. We would all like to know their secret, wouldn’t you?
Hunza people grow and harvest their own food, so they do not consume any imported foods. They eat a little, and their diet includes raw fruits and vegetables, nuts, dried apricots, milk, cereals like barley, millet, buckwheat, legumes, eggs, and rarely cheese.
These people spend the entire day walking. According to their tradition, they fast for a period of 2-4 months, when they do not consume anything, except for dried apricot juice, until their fruits ripen for harvest.
Multiple experts believe that it is this fast that enhances the quality of their life and promotes health. They think that they effectively prevent cancer due to the high amounts of apricot in their diet.
The seeds of the apricot fruit have a powerful anti-cancer agent or vitamin B-17.
Furthermore, these people look much younger than they really are, due to their healthy diet and lifestyle. It is believed that many of these people have a lifespan of 100 years.
These beliefs can be confirmed by a story from 1984, which covered the arrival of a Hunza man, Said Abdul Mbundu, in London.
The airport officers were puzzled and stunned when they reviewed his documents and found that this man was actually born in 1832!
