Arthur Harris MD, PhD
[back] Laetrile

"After presenting a rather effective lecture on cancer…the windshield was shot out of my car on the road back to San Francisco. The next night the glass window in the tail gate was shot out (300 miles removed from the first shooting). The police said, 'maybe someone is trying to tell you something'.  The late Arthur Harris, M.D. was threatened by two men with assassination if he continued to use laetrile. Since that time we have de-centralised the work so that, if any two of us are shot out of the saddle, it will have only a slight negative effect on the program."---Dr. Krebs

"Arthur Harris (MD, PhD)..was soon forbidden to use Laetrile on hospitalized patients. ...In...1953, Harris reported: 'Of total number of cases (82) treated with Laetrile, 43 have been pay patients, many have paid only a part of their bills...'  ...Dr. Harris...received a summons from the LA County Medical Association to appear for trial...for unethical conduct in overcharging 3 patients for Laetrile...Files showed that the (3 patients) had not paid a cent of their bills....Harris received notice that he had been expelled from the county medical society." - Glenn D. Kittler, Laetrile: Nutritional Control for Cancer with Vitamin B-17, c. 1963.

"The enzyme beta-glucoronidase is necessary to ...'trigger off'.. laetrile.....after the laetrile injection, we injected directly into the tumor...beta-glucoronidase.  The result was white slough which encompassed the (tumor) growth.  ...The slough resorbed and was replaced by normal (tissue)." - Arthur T.
