  1. No, B17 is not a vitamin. No, B17 is not a cure. Yes, B17 IS cyanide (aka poison). Read about it here.
  2. Bananas, overripe or not, will not cure your cancer.

  4. There’s so many, I couldn’t possibly list all the bogus (and often dangerous) treatments. Even if a treatment in and of itself isn’t dangerous, it still is if it keeps the patient from seeking actual medical treatment. Here is a long, long list of things that will not help get rid of cancer.

On this site, you can submit questions you’ve heard about cancer and get them answered.
